Putin: nothing good about wearing hijabs to school
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) – The wearing of hijabs to school is not traditional even in ethnic regions of Russia, President Vladimir Putin said, answering a question in the Direct Line on Thursday.
“There is nothing good about it. True, there are peculiarities in ethnic republics but what you speak about is not an ethnic peculiarity but a demonstration of the known attitude to religion,” Putin said.
“There has never been such a tradition in our country, in Islamic regions,” he said.
The wearing of hijabs is prohibited by law in certain Islamic countries,” Putin said.
“I believe that our country can and should restore school uniforms. That is already being done and I hope the regions will not forget this. I hope they will introduce these uniforms in the most active way,” the president said.
