The Union of Muslim Women in Russia and Tatarstan have called on the Russian Education Ministry to remove the headscarf ban in schools in the Republic of Tataristan.

In the 'Women Representatives of Peace' meeting, which hosted 324 delegates including those from the Russian republics of Bashkortistan and Mordovia, speakers called for the ban on the headscarf to end.

Union of Muslim Women in Russia head Nailya Ziganshina said that even though there was no official law on the headscarf, schoolgirls were being forced to remove it. She then called on the Education Ministry to do what was necessary to prevent this breach of rights.
