Fool[quote author=NOETHNICITY post=65840241]Nigerian Muslims demand an end to intimidation of muslim sisters by intolerant Christian fanatics who pick on muslim sisters at any given opportunity for no just cause.
These christian extremists who cannot bear to see sisters proudly in hijab want to intimidate them and discourage others from this style of dressing.

The Nigeria constitution, which is superior to every other law in the country guarantees freedom of dressing for all, is very clear on this issue.

Similar provocation from these intolerant fanatics led to litigations which were decided in favor of muslims.
These unnecessary provocations from intolerant christians are already on records.
When muslims start now, dont come crying all over the place o

Like I said the hatred you guys have Islam will not help you see that it is part of our right to practise any religion.. Pls diversify Ur thinking Sir and make religion apart

Take your matter to court and prevail there. Stop blackmailing citizens with zealotry and extremism. If you are so sure the constitution supports wearing hijab in the Law School let them fight there case in court. End of story.

Was she not practising the religion before she applied to study law, and was informed from day one while she was still in school, that hijab is not allowed as part of the wig and gown in Nigeria?

Does the hijab stop her from being a good lawyer?

The West that mandated us to use the wig have long gone past it and call people that wear hijab to the bar.

We just like to make a mountain of a molehill.

I can now see something is wrong with you sir. If you speak to your brain if truly you are educated and mature like you proclaim you will see and understand that Nigeria is not the only country practising law, why is Hijab allowed in other country Law school even with less Muslim population. But the hatred you have on Islam will not allow you to say the truth. Are they not Nigerian? Is it not thier right to wear what they like or do any profession they like with their way of religion. I am so disappointed in you and some others who because of Islam hatred can not say the truth.

Your brain needs to be rebooted. undecided After all the explanations given, you cannot see that your Firdaus was just being a drama queen, who decided to display her stuvpidity. She had more than 5 years to file a case in court, seeking approval to wear the hijab as part of her lawyer's robes, to court. She did not do so, but decided to wait until the day of the call to bar to throw a tantrum. sad Her name has now become synonymous with illogicality. She had ample time to raise a petition before the date of the call to bar, requesting the Council for Legal Education to change the rules in her favour. She did not do so. Can you see how immature she is?

In several countries where there is a dress code for court appearances by lawyers, they did not suddenly change overnight to admit hijab wearing female lawyers. Many of those female muslim lawyers in such countries filed a case in court, seeking approval or permission to wear the hijab, as part of their wig and gown, before they were granted the chance to do so. In the USA, they do not have a prescribed uniform or robe, for lawyers, so most lawyers wear what they like, as long as it conforms to the notion of formal wear. That is why, there hasn't been much fuss over female muslim lawyers wearing the hijab in the US. Educate yourself and stop recycling crap like a parrot. undecided

If the hijab does not stop her from being a good lawyer, then why can't she discard it? It adds nothing to her practise of the law. She was not wearing a hijab in law school, all of a sudden she arrived at the call to bar ceremony, and decided to drape herself in a hijab? Isn't that hypocrisy? shocked Finally, go back and do your research. Female muslim lawyers were not given an automatic right in Western countries (except maybe USA that lacked a dress code for lawyers) to start wearing the hijab. Find out how they lobbied and filed cases, in order to be allowed to do so. undecided

How does one just "discard" a religious practice?
From all the information I've gotten on this hijab issue, no mention of her not using it in law school, I'd like to know where you got your information.
And BTW, even if she wasn't using it in law school(which I doubt) and chooses to use it on the day she's to be called to the bar, its still part of her right to practise her religion.

In conclusion, to the best of my knowledge, there's no law that stops a hijabite from being called to the bar. The irony is the wearing of the hijab has the backing of the constitution which advocates freedom of conscience, thought and practice of religion.

I stand to be corrected.

As a sign of maturity, I won't abuse you like you have done but if truly you have sense as u claimed you will see there is injustice on the part of Muslims sister banning Hijab wearing to the call to bar in the first instance. Do they believe only Christian will practice law? But your hatred will not let you see it was wrong. #dont be hypocrites

You were the one that started the abuses first. Check your previous post. sad I merely replied you in the same coin. There is NO injustice in this case. Hijab was NEVER part of the approved outfit for lawyers in the first place, since 1962 when law school started in Nigeria. Go and check.

The injustice is from those people who now want to force an item of dressing (i.e hijab) that was never there in the first place, into the whole uniform. After signing different forms that they would abide by the rules of the law school, and the dictates of the legal profession, they now turn round to break it by demanding for a hijab, which was never part of the uniform of the lawyers, from inception - they are the real hypocrites! undecided

If you have proof that she wore it in law school, please paste the proof here. sad And wearing a hijab cannot be claimed as a right, when hijab was NEVER approved as part of the uniform for lawyers in the first place!

Lawyers have a prescribed mode of dressing to court! undecided Before even applying to study law, everyone is aware of this fact, so why are you all pretending?? Can everybody can suddenly wake up, and wear whatever they like on top or below the lawyer's uniform, claiming it is their "right?" shocked

You people keep chanting the constitution, the constitution, as if it is some kind of religious invocation. Lawyers know more about the constitution than laymen, so why hasn't any female muslim lawyer worn a hijab with her wig and gown since 1962 when the law school was opened in Nigeria? Isn't it because they know that such an action is totally frivolous?

But dont you understand my explanation since. The basis is the country combines Muslims, christian and other religion. Muslims have the one they go out before even before Law school started. should they inconvienient themselves or face the wrath of their creator because they want to go to school? until you guys understand Hijab is part of our sisters' dressing, Muslim sisters without hijab is like a body without head. We are not competing religion as for the Hijab wearing as many think. but they are not complete as human being without the hijab. pls try and understand that and the fact they dont force you people to cover your head or not wearing on your head should not cause any problem at all my friend. Let us tolerate one another pls! we own this country together. To reiterate, Our Hijab is like head on the body, without it, they are not completed. Thanks

You are the one that has refused to understand the simple facts! undecided Lawyers have been wearing the wig and gown as the approved outfit for court appearances, since this country became independent, and since law school started in 1962. The only approved, prescribed uniform for lawyers appearing in court, is the wig and gown - NOT wig and hijab! shocked Many female muslim lawyers understand this part, and they comply with the legal requirements of the profession. They have been doing so, since this country called Nigeria was created.

Any Muslim female who feels she is incomplete without a hijab, should NOT study law, because the hijab is not approved for the use of female muslim lawyers within the court, here. Instead, such a woman can study teaching, nursing or any other course that permits the use of a hijab. It sounds crude, but that is the only way to get the message across to people like you. It is not by force to study law! shocked

Now, since I believe you went to school, this fact must be simple enough for you to understand. But if you still want to argue without understanding the facts, like you have been doing, please ask God to give you wisdom so that you can stop sounding clueless! sad

I just want to say something on the freedom of religion that is enshrined in the Nigerian Constitution. First of all, it is not an absolute right, which means that there are limits to how and where you can practice your religion. Secondly, the same constitution expressly bans a state religion which means that the government is supposed to be religiously neutral in the affairs of governance.

On this particular matter, the Nigerian Constitution empowers the Law school or any other body to decide what it's dress code is. To wear Hijab is not a fundamental human right, it is not even a fundamental religious right(There are many islamic scholars that believe that wearing hijab is not compulsory, and even among the Umnah there is still serious debate on the compulsoriness of the hijab, only the hardline extremist wahabi and salafist with some fundamentalist islam emphasises Hijab)and as such it is the fundamental right of the Law school to decide to be religiously neutral in its dress code.

This is not an Islamic country. If the muslims want a full blown sharia country let them be united and ask for a country and they can partition the country and the muslims can have there Islamic State run by the dictates of sharia or Islam. This is becoming outrageous by the day. You have this terrorist Ishaq of MURIC spitting hate speeches everyday and inflaming tensions.

Any muslim woman that feels that she can never be complete without the hijab should not study Law in Nigeria. I wonder how such Islamic Lawyers with that kind of mindset can fairly defend a christian. Bringing religion into governance is bound to lead to a civil war sooner or later. This is why it is banned in the constitution.

The body that trains lawyers, makes it clear to everyone that this is the uniform to be worn in their profession, and you start opening your mouth yakata to say "human right?" Under which planet? shocked Every professional body has its own rules and regulations. You either abide by those rules, and stay within the profession, or you get out of it, if you cannot stick to their rules.
