MUSLIMS, CHRISTIANS END HIJAB RANGLES AS THEY SIGN MoU

Date:

Muslims and Christians in the country led by the Public Affair Committee (PAC) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on the wearing of hijab in public schools.

The signing of the pact, which took place in Blantyre, will see Christian-owned schools allowing female Muslim learners to wear hijabs in school.

Wearing of Islamic headgear has been allowed on the condition that it should be matching the school uniform.

The recommendation in the MoU also states that PAC should deal with concerns of Rastafarians, Bible Believers, and other concerned faith groups.

The ceremony was witnessed by Minister of Education, Agnes Nyalonje, National Unity Minister Timothy Mtambo, UN Senior Human Rights Advisor to Malawi, Sabina Lauber, and Civil Society representatives.
