Good that the municipality gets involved for the childrens’ sake, it shows a sign of intelligence, but the day-care representative defends the ”freedom bag”, saying it doesn’t impede communication. Nonsense, the niqab is representative of the highly destructive, anti-female ideology that Islam has propagated over the centuries.
Allowing women to cover themselves up and work amongst children not from that culture sends the wrong message. While some inequality may exist, we treat men and women as equals in western society, which means that we do not view women as prostitutes and men as potential perverts before being proven otherwise. Islamic societies to varying degrees, do.
That kind of thinking should not be allowed within the workplace, especially where children are involved. KGS
Norway dispute over daycare worker’s right to use a face veil
IS: Oslo Municipality would like to intervene in day-care workers’ religious clothing.
It is about Muslim women using nikab-scarf with fabric that covers everything except the eyes.
Private kindergartens have nevertheless lukewarmly greeted the involvement into the affair. They consider that the municipality does not have the right to interfere with the way their employees dress.
According to day-care representative, Torger Ødegaard , workers are allowed to use nikab if it does not impede communication or professional duties.
– To our knowledge, this was not a big problem in day care centers, “he says.
Women use the nikab widely, including the Persian Gulf environment.
