Swiss Army Greenlights Islamic Headscarf for Female Soldiers

Swiss Army Greenlights Islamic Headscarf for Female Soldiers:

The Islamic headscarf is compatible with the Swiss army dress code, Federal Councilor Guy Parmelin has told local media, confirming reports that a hijab-wearing Muslim is enrolled in Switzerland’s school of recruits for the first time.

The Swiss People’s Party (SVP) figure addressed the issue in the National Council Monday when asked a question on whether the army allows soldiers to wear the veil.

“A young woman published a picture of her in a Swiss army uniform wearing a beret over an Islamic veil, boasting of being the first veiled woman to do military service,” Jean-Luc Addor told the Council.

“Is this tolerated?” the SVP representative for the canton of Valais asked, going on to question whether Switzerland’s army has “the will or the means to clamp down on veil-wearing and so prevent this kind of display”.

Parmelin, who heads the nation’s Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sports, said the religious garment is perfectly within regulations as long as it is kept hidden underneath official regulation army headwear.

He added: “But the garment in question is not a veil, it is a scarf.” he added.
