A Muslim teacher was fired for her Hijab. Fatima Hasan, a female teacher of Super Montessori School, Thakur Ganj, Lucknow had been prohibited to take her classes with her hijab. She was further told that her wearing of hijab had resulted in the school's losses, and therefore she could either discard her hijab or resign from the position.
Fatima Hasan had been an English teacher at SM School for around a year and had always used the hijab. No one had objected to it until the month of December, when the Principal of the school said that she had to teach without the hijab, as her hijab had brought financial losses to the school.
The school principal further informed her that due to the hijab many parents had withdrawn the admission of their children from the school.
