Entitled Muslim Sues Boss For Telling Her 'No Hijab,' Judge Gives Her Nasty Surprise

Judge Juliane Kokott (pictured) not only ruled against a Muslim woman’s demand to wear the hijab at work, she also issued some good news for European businesses.

After 10 years of fighting a legal battle to be allowed to ignore company rules a Muslim convert was told by today’s face of the day Judge Juliane Kokott,that not only was the court ruling against her discrimination case, but that all companies in the EU can ban Muslim employees from wearing headscarves as long as they have a rule that states that workers must refrain from religious and political symbolism. This is a fair verdict as it treats all religions and political affiliations equally.One rule for all is as fair as it can get.

The headscarf ban “may … be justified in order to enforce a legitimate policy of religious and ideological neutrality pursued by the employer,” Juliane Kokott, a German advocate general at the EU Court of Justice in Luxembourg, said in a statement on Tuesday (31 May). Kokott said G4S was right to have a no-symbol policy “because of the special nature of the work which G4S employees do” and because Muslim scarves or other religious paraphernalia would have “a defining impact … on the image of the firm.”

Kokott added that businesses must first establish “a general company rule” that bans religious symbols of any kind, adding that it must be “proportional” to all ideologies to be fair. Since Christians and Jews would not be allowed special rights in the workplace, Muslims should adhere to this rule just like everyone else.
