Discrimination for wearing veil
RECENTLY, my friend and I went to a pharmaceutical company to pursue our internship in the industry.
On the second day of joining the company, we were both called by the deputy production manager who made it clear that we could not continue our internship if we wish to wear the hijab, as it was against the company’s policy.
Surprisingly, both of us wore the lab coats and caps provided by the company over the hijab and our work was not to be affected
because of it. Our academic qualification or efficiency was never in question.
We were discriminated because of our hijab; discrimination is to be deplored be it in any form.
