Only My Husband Is Allowed To See My Hair, Allow Us To Cover It - Muslim Lady Begs GES


The call for wearing of Hijab in public institutions has become one of the cries of Ghanaian Muslim girls in our various schools.

A Muslim lady, Mamuda Abdulai popularly known as Misty M has stated categorically that only her husband is allowed to see her hair per her religion teachings.

According her, explaining her situation to Ghana Education Service and other school authorities, she said as a Muslim lady, her specification is the Hijab, which her religion, thus Islam has inculcated into her right from birth.

She argued that Islam prohibits her as a lady from leaving her hair uncovered for another person to see except her husband only.

"To school authorities from the basic level to the second cycle schools in Ghana, all Muslim girls who wear Hijab should not be intimidated,harassed or forced to take it off" she said

She added that wearing Hijab is a religious believe and hence whether an Islamic or non Islamic school, the girls should be allowed to wear the Hijab throughout their stay in the school.
