Oct 17, 2014 – Lagos Bans Hijab In Public Schools, Suit By Muslim Students Association Of Nigeria Failed

An Ikeja Lagos High court today has upheld the ban on wearing headscarf in public schools in Lagos state.

A Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja, western Nigeria, on Friday upheld the ban by the Lagos State Government on wearing of the Muslim headscarf popularly known as hijab by Muslim students in primary and secondary public schools in the state.

The Muslim Students of Nigeria, Lagos State Area Unit, MSSN-LSAU, had taken the Lagos State Government to court over the ban on the ground that it breached their fundamental human rights as Muslims.

The students group through their lawyer, Chief Adetola Kassim, had sought protection for Muslim students from being flogged, embarrassed and victimised for using hijab within and outside school premises.

The Lagos State Government in responding to the suit, insisted that hijab can only be used during special occasions such as religious classes and prayers among others.

Delivering judgment on the matter, Justice Grace Modupe Onyeabo upheld the ban.

    What is happeningyo our dear country. What are all these religious that is tearing us apart. Why all of a sudden some people feel that religion which suppose to be personal must be made a public and enforced thru laws as dictated by their religion. The most annoying thing is for the government to unnecessarily engage itself funding and promoting religion which suppose to be a personal thing. At the rate we are going if care is not taken by ggovernment we will end up producing religious fanatic ably assisted by the government. We need religion for obvoius reasons and have a united country base on our individual contributions rather than having a country of ‘which religion you belong to. Can we progress by this attitude in a situation where my fellow human being believes that l dont know God or Allah as such he or she has nothing to do with me. We are creating knowingly apartheid South Africa in no distant future. It will not augur well for us.

    Not even American public or private schools ban Hijab. It’s so pathetic of so called color people. They have been whitewashed by modern civilization. Yet they complaining about young people this days walk around naked. What a shame!. Using crimes committed by some under the same cover is pure non-excuse.

      YOU NEED TO GO TO FRANCE, WHERE IT WAS BANNED SINCE 2011. YOU CAN NOT USED IT IN PUBLIC .

      I THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO BAN ALL THESE SO CALLED RELIGION CODE, I DO NOT THINK GOD WILL BECAUSE OF YOUR RELIGION DIVIDE THE SKY.

      WHICH MEANS YOU ARE ALL DOOMED WITH YOUR SO CALLED RELIGION CODE, ISLAM AND THE SO CALLED KIRIYO OR CHERISTY ARE SICK PEOPLE , THEY ARE DESTROYING THIS WORLD,

      PEOPLE SHOULD GO INSIDE THEIR ROOM AND PRACTICE WHATEVER THE GAR DARM SPIRIT OR SAINT YOU WANT TO CALL, KEEP YOUR IDEOLOGY TO YOURSELF.

      THEY KIRIYO HAVE THEIR OWN TERRORIST , SUCH AS KKK KLUS IN AMERICA, THEY ARE THE KNIGHT TEMPLARS , THEY ARE VIKING , SO , IN THE ISLAM , BOKO, TALIBAN , ISIS, AND SO FORT.

    is unfortunate how u christain think.Islam is not and is never going to become christainity where u guys hv practically abandoned the ways of christ to follow d so called modernization without morality.Check and see ur women naked everywhere and society will be better for it. As muslims, we are commanded to follow the ways of all God’s prophets as they are perfect examples for us to follow. That is why in our dressing as muslims, we look like mother Mary than u christains. No amount of conspiracy can distroy Islam- this my bretherens is a promise by the creator of the heavens and earth. Take it or leave it. MAY GOD SAVE U ALL
