A Nursing student of the University of Lleida (UdL) on the campus of Igualada (Barcelona) has filed a complaint at the Dolors Piera Center for Equality and promotion of women arguing that it was expelled from the center where he carried out practices for wearing hijab.
The Student Council of the University of Lleida has assured Monday in a statement that some of its members have accompanied the student to the Dolors Piera Center so that “tfile a file and draw the relevant conclusions about the situation, the person in charge and the center where the events occurred and the solutions offered by the University. “
In his Twitter account, the Igualada de la UdL campus he lamented on Friday the ban on his student to wear hijab while doing internships in an external center, a situation that according to the university was resolved “by assigning an alternative center”.
The Student Council maintains that “dress standards must be related to the activity developed professional and not be a mere whim of the employer to which freedom of religion prevails. “
In this context, the council asks the UdL to take the necessary actions to prevent a similar situation from being repeated by supporting the initiative proposed by the student that includes the incorporation of a clause in current practice agreements and futures requiring collaborating institutions not to make any kind of discrimination based on “birth, race, sex, religion, opinion or any other personal or social condition or circumstance, including the freedom to profess religion or belief both in public and In private”.
