To Turkey with Jubilation


w0000t w00000t! Congratulations Turkish Hijabies for being able to attend Turkish Universities! It's what's in your head, not what's on it that should matter.

Turkey: Head Scarf Law Approved

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published: February 23, 2008

President Abdullah Gul approved a change in the Constitution that lifts a ban against women’s head scarves at universities. Parliament passed the measure this month, and it has polarized Turkey. Mr. Gul, an observant Muslim whose wife and daughter wear the head coverings, said the amendments did not violate secularism, one of the founding principles of modern Turkey.


Rock on Gul! (Oh and the picture is of the President's wife Hayrunnisa)

@dusty: I do understand your concerns.

It's interesting to me how hardliners such as Turkish secularists and Kuwaiti Islamists use the same "Armageddon" argument.

Turkish secularists say allow hijab and you're allowing an Islamic state.

Kuwaiti Islamists say allow co-ed education and you're allowing bastard children and prostitution.

Different words, same rhetoric.

Thanks for stopping by!
