Hijab ban for muslim frontline hotel staff a form of discrimination — Nazri

KUALA LUMPUR: The hijab ban for Muslim women working at the frontline of hotels, as practised by some hotel chains in this country, is a form of discrimination, disrespectful, irresponsible, and a violation of the Federal Constitution.

Tourism and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said  every country has its constitution and law and any activity undertaken cannot contravene such constitution.

“The hijab ban is a form of discrimination because the Federal Constitution clearly states that there can be no discrimination on any ground, whether religion, race, language or others,” he told reporters after the pre-launch  of Kuala Lumpur  International Craft Festival 2017  here yesterday. — Bernama
