The Borneo Post - - HOME -

KUALA LUMPUR: The hi­jab ban for Mus­lim women work­ing at the front­line of ho­tels, as prac­tised by some ho­tel chains in this coun­try, is a form of dis­crim­i­na­tion, dis­re­spect­ful, ir­re­spon­si­ble, and a vi­o­la­tion of the Fed­eral Con­sti­tu­tion.

Tourism and Cul­ture Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Mo­hamed Nazri Ab­dul Aziz said ev­ery coun­try has its con­sti­tu­tion and law and any ac­tiv­ity un­der­taken can­not con­tra­vene such con­sti­tu­tion.

“The hi­jab ban is a form of dis­crim­i­na­tion be­cause the Fed­eral Con­sti­tu­tion clearly states that there can be no dis­crim­i­na­tion on any ground, whether re­li­gion, race, lan­guage or oth­ers,” he told re­porters after the pre-launch of Kuala Lumpur In­ter­na­tional Craft Fes­ti­val 2017 here yes­ter­day.
