Discrimination Against Muslim Students in Ghanaian Education Institution

Discrimination Against Muslim Students in Ghanaian Education Institution

The Muslim Community in the Western Region on Friday demonstrated to express their displeasure over discrimination against their female students who wear the hijab, a traditional scarf worn by Muslim women to cover their hair and neck and sometimes their face.

They insisted that Muslim students should not be forced to attend Sunday church services in schools.

Government later warned that heads of institutions, including schools and work places, found to be contravening the basic constitutional rights of the Muslims will be sanctioned.

But the Christian Council is of the view that the issue should be left with the National Peace Council, religious leaders and the Ghana Education Service to resolve it amicably.

The Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) says the issue of discrimination of Muslim students in some education institutions in the country needs consensus to resolve it and not politics.

"The Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) has noted the current concerns expressed by her Muslim brothers and sisters over the use of hijab (veils) in our educational institutions and calls for consensus building in addressing it," a statement signed by the Council's General Secretary, Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong stated.

Meanwhile, the Council further stated that "the National Peace Council has already taken up the issue and is working at resolving it to ensure peace."

This follows a petition forwarded to the Council by the Muslim Caucus in Parliament over the issue.

The Muslim MPs also condemned the practice in the schools and insisted that Muslim students should not be forced to attend church services.
