Headmaster wrong to ban hijab

The director of Anubal Pattani School may have made the gravest mistake of his life by banning students under his charge from wearing the hijab.

The Office of the Basic Education Commission has come out against the ban and cited its long-standing policy that female students can wear the hijab, subject only to the dress code.

This incident has caused embarrassment to the government, since Pattani is one of the predominantly Muslim provinces in the South.

Hence, the government should make certain this foolish incident does not occur again, by legally prohibiting bias and intimidation against non-Buddhist citizens.
