“Garb Ban?”


On fox news an article states that, “Thousands of mostly Muslim protesters took to the street in Montreal to express anger at a plan to ban public sector workers from wearing religious garb in Quebec.”

“The prohibition of headscarves, turbans and other religious garments is part of a proposed overhaul of the Canadian province’s ‘Charter of Values.'”

I just don’t get why. This is part of their culture and who they are. 

“It would ban public sector employees from donning ‘conspicuous religious symbols,’ including headscarves, yarmulkes, turbans, and large crosses at work, but allows certain religious jewelry, as long as it is “not very visible.”

These are seen as “conspicuous?” why?? People someone goes about their religion in a different way than you? I just don’t agree with this at all.
