Quoting CANLI:

When women have the permission to wear headscarves in UNİ
The number of educated women will be increased
And that İS a threat

and when will women be allowed in mosques with headscarf (let alone without it)?

I don't think a headscarf is what makes a country secular. Yet, I believe it was Erdinc who gave quite sensible reasons of why scarves are a problem. To me it seems people should be free to wear headscarves, crosses or turbans - whatever they like.

Still, I see no relation between education and headscarves. If I cared about education, I'd know that being religious is not about scarves. Somebody wrote a while ago that Muslims can pretend not to be Muslims in case of life threatening situations. Taking off a scarf doesn't say "I'm not Muslim" it just says I obey my country's law first. And I think that's what Ataturk wanted to achieve by secularism - country comes before religion.

I think our "Anayasa Mahkemesi" says that :

"Başı kapalılar" / Girls with headscarves you will not go universities. You will sit at home. No education for you. You are "Hizmetci" and "Köylü", you will stay as servant and villager. Never mind to get educated. Stay "Cahil".

This decision is a rape of the constitution by The Constitutional Court!!
