Muslim athlete can wear scarf
Published April 3, 2005
A 12-year-old Muslim girl will be allowed to wear her head scarf in an basketball tournament in Orlando after officials originally told her not to, the Florida Council on American-Islamic Relations said Saturday.
The Amateur Athletic Union had told the girl from Tampa she could not wear her religiously mandated scarf, called a hijab, while playing, citing rules prohibiting head coverings.
But after the Muslim rights group intervened, the union changed its mind, CAIR spokesman Ahmed Bedier said.
The girl will have to tuck her scarf into her uniform during play in the tournament at Disney's Wide World of Sports Complex, which ends today.
