The administration of Cristina Fernandez has passed historic legislation that allows Muslim women to wear hijab (headscarf) in public places or in photographs for national ID cards without the fear of persecution.
The new law seeks to promote freedom of religion and expression in the Latin American country, and help the Muslim community to integrate into the Argentinean society. (This PREVENTS them from integrating which is what they prefer) The Muslim community in Argentina has welcomed the news, especially seeing that in other places like France, governments are taking drastic measures to ban the Islamic headscarf in public places and schools. Although Muslims are a minority here in Argentina, the government is making it a priority to make sure they’re free to express their religion without discrimination. (And we know what this leads to)
