Telegram users outraged by Dagestani official's words about hijab scandal in Tyumen
The official representative of Dagestan in the Tyumen Region should have defended not the teachers who hadn't let a schoolgirl in a hijab to enter the school, but the girl who, according to religious beliefs, was wearing a headscarf, the commentators to the statement of the community member have pointed out.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that managers of a school in Tyumen would not change the internal regulations after a scandal with a schoolgirl from a family of natives of Dagestan, who was not allowed to attend classes in a hijab.
A video with an explanation by Yaragi Kurbanov, the permanent representative of Dagestan in the Tyumen Region, was posted on September 9 in the Telegram channel of the information centre of the government of the Tyumen region. "We have the law 'On Education' that provides for the right of the subject of the Russian Federation, the right of the school to define the clothes for the schoolchildren of a particular school. These requirements must be met," Mr Kurbanov says in the video.
In their comments, social network users have disagreed with Kurbanov's viewpoint. He should have defended not the teachers who hadn't let a schoolgirl in a hijab to enter the school, but the girl who, according to religious beliefs, was wearing a headscarf, the commentators said.
"Fire this Dagestani immediately; he is not worthy to address such issues," the user Gadjimurad@ has stated, in particular. "This Dagestan representative should be kicked out neck and crop, without the right to hold such posts in future," the user Aishat has suggested.
