A beautiful young Muslim lady who goes by the name Zainab Alhassan has recounted a horrible experience she went through during a beauty pageant audition at a popular TV station.


Narrating her ordeal in a Facebook post, Zainab disclosed how she passed through the first part of the audition, exhibited her talent and showed off her oratory skills to which the judges were impressed.

However, during a question and answer segment, Zainab revealed how concerned she became when the judges started asking her questions regarding her choice of clothes. Being a Muslim from a traditional Muslim home, Zainab was wearing a Hijab which is a headscarf worn by Muslim women across the world. The Hijab is a unique scarf that Muslim women start wearing from childhood to signify purity and respect for the tradition.

According to Zainab, the judges quizzed her if she will ever remove her Hijab during the competition if she qualifies to which she disagreed.

Zainab furthered that the judges went as far as asking her if she bathed in her Hijab when she refused to remove it. As a result, Zainab was disqualified from partaking in ongoing Ghana’s Most Beautiful beauty pageant auditions.


After sharing her sad experience, a lot of women came out to share similar experiences of losing Job opportunities for just for the simple fact of wearing a Hijab.

So the big question is, why should this be so? Ghana is a country that practices religious tolerance so why must someone be denied an opportunity to showcase their talent just because of their religious affiliations and choice of clothes? Do we really respect each other’s beliefs and traditions as we claim?

Well, it seems a lot of people are still ignorant when it comes to “freedom of association”. The government of Ghana in collaboration with religious leaders need to tackle this issue with urgency before it escalates into something worse. Equal opportunities must be given to all, regardless of their political or religious affiliations.

Meanwhile, read Zainab’s full post below;
