The Muslims section in the country have roared up against Ghana Education Service over what they refer as unfair treatment and discrimination of religion using the constitution and rules.
The Muslim community in Ghana is calling the government to allow their daughters to also wear Hijab to any institution in the country without restrictions because of the religious tolerance in the 1992 constitution.
According to the Muslim community, the Ghana Education Service is not being fair to Muslims because the Ghana Education Service has made definite pronouncements on the wearing of dreadlocks to school by Rastafarians on Cultural/Religious grounds but they still can't have the same with their girls wearing Hijab.
According to the Muslims, the Muslim girl wearing the Hijab is not wearing it as a fashion either. They revealed that the Hijab is their identity as Muslims and it represents purity.
They therefore urge the Ghana Education Service to provide a similar pronouncement on Hijabs for them so that their daughters can also wear them in any school based on religious grounds.
This request came after the Ghana Education Service directed Achimota Senior High School to admit some two Rastafarians whom they denied admission because of their dreadlocks. GES directed the two boys to have their hair neatly tied at their back and get enrolled.
