Trinidad teacher fired for wearing hijab to work at Hindu school

The story of a hijab-wearing teacher in Trinidad, Nafisah Nakhi, a 23-year-old engineering student, who was refused entrance into a Hindu school for wearing the hijab to work, is the biggest news-making event in the country since last February’s carnival.

The issue has united most Trinidadians across all racial and religious boundaries who see it as an affront to the country’s secular constitution and the spirit of the nation.
