Former Minister of Aviation, Fani Kayode, has blamed Amasa Firdaus, a graduate of University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), who was denied ‘call to bar’ by officials of the Council of Legal Education (CLE) for failing to remove her hijab.
Fani kayode says Firdaus was only being childish and disingenuous as Nigeria is a secular state and she cannot insist on wearing a religious garb during a secular ceremony (Daily Post).
The opinion of Fani Kayode shows his mentality on issue of decency. I wonder if Mr. Fani Kayode ever know what modesty in humanity mean.
With the level of education and exposure to the Nigerian constitution of former Minister of Aviation, it still sound wanton of him to blame Amasa Firdaus, a graduate of University of Ilorin (UNILORIN), who was denied ‘call to bar’ by officials of the Council of Legal Education (CLE) for not removing her Hijab that was used under the wig she wore.
Despite the fact that Mr. Fani Kayode is well known for his uncultured and unethical public speaking, he is humbly advised to stay away from reacting to issues pertaining to Islam if he cannot speak in line with what Nigerian constitution says.
Former Minister of Aviation, Mr. Fani Kayode should also understand that Amasa Firdaus and other modest female Muslims are not the type of ladies that wear immoral dresses.
Hijab is not a guise dress as described by some media outlet, rather a decent dress that pious female Muslims wear. So why should decent dressing be a problem? “The Hijab is just an Arabic word. In English it means decent dressing” (Sultan Sokoto).
