In reference to this story
I have issued the following:
I affirm that right of all New Zealand Women to choose what they want to wear.
Every New Zealand women has the right to wear what she wishes, no matter what.
I applaud all who support this right.
The faith of every Muslim calls them to support women's rights.
I congratulate Fatima Mohammadi for standing up for her right to wear hijab.
We are blessed to have such a strong Muslim women.
Despite the actions of one rogue employee, I also extend my support to Stewart Dawsons/Pascoes for also supporting her decision.
Peace to all
