The teacher noticed the girl had removed her hijab and asked her about it after class. She then told the girl she would tell the girl’s parents. (This teacher should be fired)
Clarion Project That a teacher in a U.S. public school would threaten to “out” a Muslim student to the student’s parents for choosing to remove what the student perceived as an oppressive garment is not only a violation of the girl’s right of religious freedom, but very well might have endangered the girl’s life itself.
It is an outrage that something like this could happen in a U.S. public school. The student, who attends a Massachusetts public high school, wrote about the December 18 incident on Reddit, a popular social media site. Here is the story in her own words:
Stupid Western Leftists keep trying to promote the hijab as ‘cool’, while women in the Middle East and parts of Africa are forced to wear the hijab. The hijab is a symbol of women oppression. The women in Iran are currently risking their lives for the sake of freedom and to remove the hijab!
Designated terrorist group CAIR won’t lift finger to help this Muslim girl as they did when a teacher allegedly removed a Muslim student’s hijab.
CAIR said the student at Lake Braddock Secondary School in Burke, VA, reported online that the teacher came up behind her, pulled off her hijab and reportedly said, “Oh your hair is so pretty.”
It wasn’t good enough for CAIR that the school administration put the teacher on leave and has apologized to the student and her family for the incident. They insisted that further disciplinary action needs to be taken based on the results of the investigation into this disturbing incident,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad.
In a similar case, CAIR called for a criminal investigation and the firing of a teacher at a Tennessee charter school after a video was circulated online of a Muslim student having her Islamic head scarf, or hijab, forcibly removed in a classroom.
