Municipal deputy of the Yakimanka District Dmitry Zakharov is going to address Moscow mayor Sergey Sobyanin with a request to ban wearing hijab in city. The author of the initiative answers the questions.

He notes that even in such Islamic countries as Tunisia and Algeria hijab is banned in state institutions and schools.
