‘Turkey’s Hijab ban contravenes human rights’

The head of Turkish human rights association, the Organization of Human Rights and Solidarity for Oppressed People, known as Mazlumder, says the country’s Hijab ban is a violation of human rights and religious freedom.

“The ban on Islamic Hijab has been implemented in Turkish schools, universities, offices, and even in political arena of the country and unfortunately the problem remains unresolved,” said Ahmed Faruk Unsal in an exclusive interview with the IRIB External Service’s Turkish Radio on Monday.

The Hijab ban was implemented after a coup on February 28, 1997. It has been applied to the public sector as well as the universities, schools, and educational centers.
