Iran condemns a ruling by a top EU court that allows the banning of headscarves under certain conditions. Foreign Ministry spokesman, Saeid Khatibzadeh, says the verdict is a shameful discriminatory measure against religious freedoms. He says the measure may lead to the rise of Islamophobia and violence against Muslims in European countries. The Luxembourg-based EU Court of Justice ruled on Thursday that employers may ban the wearing of visible symbols of religious or political belief, such as headscarves. The ruling says respective courts in the bloc’s 27 member states should consider whether the ban corresponds to a genuine need on the part of employers.
