A Law school graduate identified as Firdaus Amosa has been left heartbroken after she was denied the privilege of being called to Bar because she wouldn’t take off her hijab.

After the incident, a friend of Firdaus has taken to her Instagram to share the story and she captioned it: “Good morning everyone, I want to use this medium to express my dissatisfaction with the way muslims are treated in this my profession called ‘LAW’.

�A sister wasn’t called to the bar because she was dressed like that (Picture above) please for God sake what is wrong with that picture? Because she was putting on a small hijab tucked into her collarette, WHY? What has Hijab done to them?Where is our freedom of Religion as stated in the constitution? “”We need justice…For those that don’t know, Hijab is a MANDATORY part of my religion not just a piece of clothing, so if my freedom of religion is said to have been guaranteed in section 38 of the constitution of my country that is said to be supreme and have have binding force over all as seen in section 1 of this same constitution and Section 42 of this same constitution guarantees my right to freedom from discrimination, please for God sake what is this then and before you come here attack me, please read section 38 (1) and section 1 (1) first and also go ahead to read S1 (3) of this same constitution with an unbiased mind where it is said that if any other law is inconsistent with the provisions of this constitution this constitution shall prevail…B’iko what are we now talking about? Please we want justice.

�We want our hijab. we want #JusticeForFirdaus. We want to wear our hijabs for call to bar. we want to wear it in the court room. Stop the discrimination. We are muslims not terrorists. Hijab is Mandatory. We want Justice for Firdaus”

The incident has led to the hashtags #hijab and #JusticeforFirdaus, a movement which has begun on social media aimed at giving Firdaus justice for being denied the honours of becoming a lawyer.
