Islamophobic Law Against Muslim Women in Europe


Human Rights Watch — The European Union’s top court ruled last Thursday that employers may forbid the wearing of visible symbols of religious or political belief, such as headscarves. Protection of religious freedom – for Muslim women in particular – was dented by this new law.

Ruling on two cases brought by women in Germany whose employers refused to let them wear headscarves at work, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) found on July 15 that employers can limit workplace expression of religious, political, or philosophical beliefs where there is “a genuine need” to “present a neutral image towards customers or to prevent social disputes.”

In this video, Sara Jamshidi, producer for Goltune Podcast, explains the discriminatory law in Europe.
