Muslim girl's headscarf airbrushed

Jane Metlikovec - June 05, 2007

A MUSLIM schoolgirl's traditional headscarf was airbrushed from a class photograph, a parliamentary inquiry has heard.

A state parliamentary inquiry into dress codes and school uniforms yesterday heard several Muslim students had been discriminated against because of their dress.

Islamic Council of Victoria executive committee member Sherene Hassan said the student wore her hijab in a class photograph, but it was airbrushed so it would not stand out.

"You can imagine that was quite demoralising," Ms Hassan said.

Ms Hassan also told the inquiry one Victorian student was told she would not be admitted to school if she wore her hijab.

"That individual was so keen to attend that school she decided not to wear her headscarf," she said.

While the majority of schools supported students who wore the headgear, some teachers needed more understanding of Islam, she said.
The inquiry is considering whether school uniforms should be made compulsory.

Update:
The above news story was on Yahoo news. I checked it out this morning and it was gone. If you Google this news story, you will find this written below the title:


“A Victorian Muslim schoolgirl had her traditional headscarf airbrushed from a class photograph in just one example of the discrimination Islamic students …”

That was a part of the deleted article. I guess someone was freaked out because the article repeated the phrase “discrimination against Muslims in Australia”


Why “Yahoo News” deleted this news story in the first day it was published?

This is so insulting. Imagine a photo of a girl had had the clothes airbrushed off of it, with a nude body replacing them. That most definitely wouldn't be okay, why should this be?

Surely it would have been cheaper to just leave the photograph untouched? What a silly thing to airbrush out.

Zits, on the other hand...

So did they put fake hair on her or just airbrushed it bald? Or what? Thats not only rude but people would think that she had no hijab on thinking she is a hipocrate or something.

I'm pretty sure she would have stood out more if she was bald, so I'm assuming they put fake hair on..

I didn't realise this was in Australia because I didn't follow the link. That being said it seems that most of these stories come out of Western Europe. We have HUGE muslim populations in Texas, Detroit, NY, and Chicago and these issues don't seem to arise.

I think this is because of the attitudes towards religion in romantic (Spain, France, Italy and the low countries) Europe. In these countries, the enlightenment and the revolutions pushed religion to the sidelines and made it something to be looked down on, whlist promoting nationalism and making foreginers an enemy too. Hence how a group of largely foregin people who practice a religion that is quite opposed to secularisation of society are discriminated against.

However, in the Germanic countries such as Scandinavia, Britian (and her American colonies) and Germany, these revolutions did not happen, and religion is more important, leading to less nationalistic discrimination.

There are some exceptions in my theory, such as Denmark and Australia, but in general I think its true.
