Hijab

Per this:

France’s Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin has just appointed a committee to draft a law to ban the Islamist hijab (headgear) in state-owned establishments, including schools and hospitals. The decision has drawn fire from the French “church” of Islam, an organisation created by Raffarin’s government last spring.

Germany is facing its hijab problem with a number of Islamist organisations suing federal and state authorities for “religious discrimination” because of bans imposed on the controversial headgear.

Those tolerant Europeans. But here’s the real interesting part:

That claim is totally false. The headgear in question has nothing to do with Islam as a religion. It is not sanctioned anywhere in the Koran, the fundamental text of Islam, or the hadith (traditions) attributed to the Prophet.

This headgear was invented in the early 1970s by Mussa Sadr, an Iranian mullah who had won the leadership of the Lebanese Shiite community.
