MOSCOW, March 19. /TASS/. The EU’s highest court has actually declared a war on religion, allowing employers to ban staff from wearing hijabs (headscarves traditionally worn by Muslim women) at workplace, Chechnya’s leader Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram page.
"The European court of justice has taken a shameful decision allowing employers to ban staff from wearing hijabs and other visible religious symbols. In fact, they mean a covert war on religions," Kadyrov said.
Chechnya’s leader is convinced believers’ reaction to the court’s ruling would be quite contrary.
"Muslims in Europe will say resolute ‘No!’ to the efforts aimed to ban their religious rights! If they have never worn any hijabs, they will put (headscarves) on at workplace, university, elsewhere," he said. "Followers of other religions will take a similar attitude to the court’s ruling."
Kadyrov compared contemporary Europe with Biblical Sodom and Gomorrah and with Nazi Germany.
"They want the entire world to turn into Sodom and Gomorrah. In Nazi Germany, genocide was racial and ethnic. If you keep silent, there are no guarantees it will not happen again on a religious basis," he went on to say.
Chechnya’s leader accused European authorities of immorality and of "the blurring of ethnic and religious identities." European countries are fostering a new culture advocating "a total denial of the faith, morals and ethics."
Earlier, Chechnya’s head branded the topic of hijabs as contrived since an Islamic headscarf covers a woman’s head unlike the veil, hiding the whole face but for eyes. The veil has nothing to do with Islam, being an outfit typical for Afghanistan and other regional nations, he said.
