We Will Not allow hijab in Kwara mission schools — CAN insists



Kwara State Chairman of Christian association of Nigeria (CAN) chapter has reacted to the approved of use of Hijab is school by the Kwara State government.

CAN in state said use of Hijab in missions schools in the state will not be allowed.

CAN said, “The body condemns the use of hijab in Christian missions grant-aided schools as this will cause discrimination in schools and allow terrorists to easily identify our children and wards.

The state government was wrongly advised to take that decision. The state even acted in contempt of court as the case is still pending before the Supreme Court.

“We want to warn the government that the step it wants to take by approving the use of hijab for all public schools and grant-aided schools in the state will lead to an avalanche of reactions, the end of which no one can predict.

“With this move, the state government is saying the Muslims’ purported rights are superior to those of the Christians.
