Freedom of Religious Expression: Lawyer Appears at the Supreme Court Dressed as a Native Doctor

Following the Supreme Court’s ruling, granting freedom of religious expression to secondary schools students, Chief Malcolm Omirhobo decided to appear at the Supreme Court as a Native Doctor.

It will be recalled that the Supreme Court had recently ruled that secondary school students could go to school dressed in their Hijabs, the religious dressing allowed for Muslim females.

Citing this, the human rights Lawyer, noted that the Supreme Court had, by that ruling, granted persons of all religions the right to dress in line with their relious beliefs. He was therefore exercising his rights by appearing as a traditional worshipper.

Aside from causing a stir in court, the Justices, who were visibly shocked, immediately went on recess.
