The “right to wear hijab” will be enforced everywhere in New Zealand

Everybody must march in lockstep, opting out cannot be tolerated:

New Zealand school BANS Muslim students from wearing the hijab after mosque massacre because headscarves are not in line with its uniform policy

  • The ban may contravene Human Rights Act and the New Zealand Bill of Rights 
  • The exclusive private school in Auckland is copping criticism for the ban
  • It comes just six-days after the Christchurch massacre that killed 50 
  • ‘Inclusive is not a thing you do half, you’re either inclusive or you’re not’ 

An exclusive private school in New Zealand has come under fire for banning students from wearing the hijab.

The Diocesan School for Girls, in Auckland, allegedly told Muslim pupils who wanted to wear the headscarf that it was not part of the school dress code.

The ban has come to light less than a week after Australian terrorist Brenton Tarrant allegedly targeted two mosques during Friday evening prayers, killing 50 Muslims.

In a statement to the New Zealand Herald the Diocesan’s principal Heather McRae, claimed the school celebrated diversity and inclusion but the uniform policy ‘(created) a sense of oneness and family.’

The newspaper stated that ban may contravene the Human Rights Act and the New Zealand Bill of Rights.

Ms McRae stands by the ban, claiming the regulations are in place to ‘ensure the Diocesan identity is upheld.’

She told staff at a briefing that the policy was not new and that she expected staff to enforce the rule.

She continued, saying ‘no wearing of jewellery or nail polish, skirt length, a requirement to tie back long hair and wear the school blazer outside school grounds, shoe styles and so on.

‘All parents sign up to the uniform policies when they join the school.’

An unidentified member of staff told TRT World that the school staff were told the dress code allowed small religious or cultural items, such as crosses, to be worn underneath uniforms.

The teacher also revealed that two students were told that their hijab was against the policies of the 100-year-old school, when they had made inquiries.

The teacher then claimed, ‘there was just silence [by the teachers]. I got the feeling that people were shocked this was a thing.’

He said a student first learned of the hijab policy was asked to read her poem about Islamophobia at a school assembly this week after the attacks.

The poem, ‘Living beneath the veil’, was published on the school’s blog two days ago but has since been removed.

The Herald, however, has obtained a copy of the poem by the Year 12 student which is about the abuse Muslim women endure throughout their lives.

Just days ago, in a move largely praised across the world, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern donned a hijab when she visited the two mosques targeted in the terror attack.

In a statement to the Herald a spokeswoman said: ‘The hijab has never been banned at Diocesan. It is simply not part of the long-standing school uniform code and there has never been a formal request from a family to have changes made to include it.’

How much will you bet that these changes will be included like… immediately?

  3. N.Z. just BANNED Jordan Peterson’s silly and insipid little book, “12 Rules For Life” – because one of the thousands of people he was paid to take selfies with on his tour, wore a T-shirt which allegedly hurt some leftopathic snowflake’s feewings.

    From here:

    “A national chain of bookstores in New Zealand has pulled copies of Jordan Peterson’s book 12 Rules for Life from sale, directly linking the decision to the massacre of 50 people in two mosques in Christchurch.

    “Unfortunately, 12 Rules for Life is currently unavailable,” said a customer representative for Whitcoulls, the country’s largest bookseller with more than 50 stores in New Zealand and an online business.

    “(It) is a decision that Whitcoulls has made in light of some extremely disturbing material being circulated prior, during and after the Christchurch attacks.

    “As a business which takes our responsibilities to our communities very seriously, we believe it would be wrong to support the author at this time.”

    The representative declined to provide her name as she was not authorized to comment to the media. Requests for comment and further explanation from company officials were not answered prior to deadline.

    It is possible the company’s ban is linked to concern sparked by a photograph of Peterson taken at an event in Auckland on Feb. 18, 2019.

    Peterson is posing with a man in a T-shirt that says “I’m a Proud ISLAMAPHOBE” and, in smaller print, lists inflammatory slurs against Muslims and concludes: “I love dogs, bacon and the FREEDOM to hate Islam but not the individual.”

    In a recent piece written by Peterson about his tour of Australia and New Zealand, published earlier this month in the Post, he spoke warmly of his lectures.

    “My radical leftist critics insist that I am appealing purposefully, effectively, greedily and politically to disaffected and angry young white men,” he wrote and then added it was “self-serving and false.”

    “There has not been a single event of any violent or even vaguely aggressive nature at any of the venues I have spoken at, despite the 300,000 hypothetically angry people in attendance … people are not attending for political reasons — just as I am not speaking for political purposes.”

  4. “Australian terrorist Brenton Tarrant”,

    I beg to differ it should read, “Australian Freedom Fighter Brenton Tarrant”.

    Allah akbar
