Workplace Headscarf Ban Is Not Discriminatory, European Court Of Justice Rules
I am not sure if this Headline is a deliberate lie or simply that the writer is stupid..
The court DID NOT rule that a headscarf ban is not discriminatory. It ruled that a ban of ALL religious symbols is not discriminatory. The court ruled that if there was a ban on hijabs, but not on nuns' wimples, that WOULD be discriminatory. The court ruled that if Christians were allowed to openly flaunt crosses but Muslims could not flaunt hijabs, that would be discriminatory. The court ruled that if babushka headscarves were allowed but hijabs were not, that would be discriminatory
Was there some reason that the Huffpo wanted to present this as a ruling against headscarves?
Was it trying to divide its audience and pit them against each other?
