Several Muslim families from the Neftekumsk district of Stavropol in southern Russia complained to the muftiat saying that their daughters were not allowed to attend school wearing headscarves, a spokesperson of the regional muftiat said on Monday, reported Ria Novosti.
“In a heavily Muslim district girls are not allowed to attend schools in headscarves. Parents of the Muslim girls do not let the girls attend schools without scarves,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
The muftiat is concerned about the girls' academic performance and is worried that the weakness in the school program will lead the custodial agency to intervene.
The girls have not been allowed at school for two weeks, although in September they were able to attend classes without any problems.
The muftiat says this was the sixth group of parents who had addressed them with such a complaint. Residents of the Arzgirsk and Step districts filed the same complaint.
“I would like to speak about the shortsightedness of our officials who demonstrate religious intolerance. For example, about 3,000 people, mostly Muslims, mostly ethnic Nogais and Dagestanis live in the village of Karatub,” the statement said.
Deputy head of Neftekumsk district Ilona Vasyuk told the report that the Prosecutor's Office is currently checking the parents’ complaints.
