Right to Hijab

This petition had 305 supporters

Let me cut to the chase, this is a petition for a change in society where everyone is not treated equally despite Freedom of religion in India being a fundamental right guaranteed by Article 25-28 of the Constitution of India which gives freedom of practice of religion to citizens of India. 

City Montessori School, a world famous school in Lucknow,India abbreviated as CMS known for its values like Faith in God, Respect for all religions, World peace etc has terminated one of its B.Ed Interns without any prior notice on the grounds of Hijab she observes . 

She has completed one month of her internship but the principal is not ready to give the experience certificate and asked her to leave just because my sister refused to take off her Head scarf in school. The school principal is not even ready to give in written the reason of my sister's termination which is against the rules of any organization.

This incident happened in CMS Asharfabad (Mansoor nagar campus). I also came to know that many teachers have been through this and removed their hijab in order to continue with their job.

Lastly, i feel that women empowerment is not just letting women work outside home or giving them freedom to wear revealing clothes, its also about their freedom to cover themselves if they want.  

It will be really helpful if you support this petition and let the school management change their regulations on how pupils and faculty should dress.

Hijab is a woman's right, nobody can devoid her of that!
