BA to force Muslim women to remove headscarves?

I wholeheartedly agree with Iain Dale that we should boycott British Airways. The decision to ban Nadia Eweida from wearing her crucifix is yet another example of the current PC trend towards the persecution of Christians.

I wonder whether BA will extend the action (reductio ad adsurdum), and ban all religious symbols. Will we see them, for example, banning female Muslim employees from wearing headscarves? I think not. After all it’s only legitimate to discriminate against Christians. Everyone else is protected (some through fear).

British Airways has already said it isn't going to ban hijabs because "it isn't something you can hide under your clothes".

I'm sure there's an irony in there somewhere.

She needs a bigger cross for it to be OK?
