Azerbaijan has banned wearing hijabs in schools.
In a move some say is designed to bring the secular predominantly Muslim country closer to Europe, Azerbaijan follows a number of other countries in banning religious head scarves in schools. It also follows the closure of several mosques late last year under a new law on religion.
Don’t you feel proud of the European export of tolerance?
[there’s a very similar dynamic behind Turkish regulation of the hijab, and Turkish secularisation in general]
