DR Congo court disqualifies 23 opposition MPs
Imams generally always wear a hat known as a kufi
Kenyan imams have protested against immigration officials asking them to remove religious caps for passport photographs, reports Kenya’s Daily Nation newspaper.
It cites as a letter sent to Kenya’s immigration department by the chairman of the Council of Imams and Preachers of Kenya (CIPK), Sheikh Abdallah Ateka, in which he says that when immigration officials insist they remove the headgear they are contravening Muslims’s freedom to worship.
The newspaper points out that guidelines on the immigration department’s website do allow people to keep hats on.
The imams also allege that members of other faiths, like Sikhs, are treated differently and do not have to remove their headgear before being photographed, the paper says.Source: BBC
