The Workers' Party pushes for de-politicised public dialogue on hijab issue

Free Malaysia Today, 7 Nov 2013
The Workers Party here wants the hijab issue de-politicised, while urging for dialogue with the uniformed professions.
Member of Parliament for Aljunied GRC, Muhammad Faisal Abdul Manap, said: “WP believes that a workable consensus is best achieved through public dialogue within the Muslim community, among our communities, and with the government elected by the people.
“The discussions should be held with an open mind, and include the input of the heads of uniformed professions on the feasibility of accommodating the wearing of the hijab in their organisations, subject to considerations such as operational exigencies.
Muhammad Faisal, who is a WP Council member and president of the WP Youth wing, said the party was committed to the ideal of a multi-racial and multi-cultural Singapore where citizens of all faiths and races had the right to practise their religion as fully as possible in harmony with all the communities.
