Christian Association of Nigeria has once again fumed over the recent decision of the Nigerian Senate to deliberate on a bill that would favour the use of Hijab in schools across the country. It's really difficult to judge situations that are related to religion but I think the Federal Government is making it look easy.
The Muslim community believes that the use of Hijab is very significant to uphold the doctrines of Islam. However, using it against the ethics of another religion could be countered. There is no doubt that Hijab presents the identity of a Muslim lady but does she really need to wear it in an environment dominated by Christians?
CAN seems to be resolute on their stance. According to the Christian Group, wearing of Hijab wouldn't improve the academic qualities of the students. Why should it be necessary in Missionary schools then?
In recent statement, CAN said: “Will a girl wearing hijab be more brilliant in school than the rest of her counterparts? They have forgotten that till today, we are not mounting pressure on the government to introduce the Christian culture to the Islamic schools".
