RUSSIAN Supreme Court upholds ban on Muslim headbags (hijabs)

The Russian Supreme Court upheld the resolution by the Stavropol Territory government which banned girls from Muslim families from coming to schools while wearing hijabs. The court thereby turned down the complaints by several Muslim citizens who had challenged the resolution as illegal and invalid.


Voice of Russia (h/t Subramanian K) “The Supreme Court rules not to change the decision by the Stavropol Territory Court which acknowledged the resolution by the regional government as legitimate, and not to meet the appeal,” Judge Valentin Pirozhkov announced.
