Student taking action against school barring wearing of hijab


A female student is taking legal action against a Prague school that refused to allow her to wear a hijab, her lawyer told the Czech News Agency. Two young Muslim women left the Prague 10 Medical Secondary School in 2013 after being barred from wearing the headdress. Ombudswoman Anna Šabatová has supported the women, describing the institution's actions as indirect discrimination. The school says its rules don't allow students to have their heads covered.
