Citadel-Considering-Uniform-Exception-for-Muslim-Student

An American Muslim student admitted to the Class of 2020 Corps of Cadets at The Citadel will not be allowed to wear a religious headscarf with the military college’s standard uniform.

In a statement released by Citadel President Lt. Gen. John Rosa, the decision to reject the request came from an “essential” need to standardize the appearance of the cadets regardless of their religious requirements.

“This process reflects an initial relinquishing of self during which cadets learn the value of teamwork to function as a single unit. Upon graduation, The Citadel’s graduates are prepared to enter a life committed to principled leadership in military service and civilian careers,” Rosa said in the statement.

  1. Needs to go “home” where that clothing is ok, it IS NOT HERE IN AMERICA!
    Don’t try to change us, you like us so much, do it our way, or go where you belong!

  2. The Citadel President is correct. If the attendees are required to wear uniforms, a headscarf is an antithesis of uniformity. Furthermore he should be expelled from the institution. If he is Muslim, he cannot truthfully swear to support and defend the US Constitution. Most military organizations require that oath. Also, as a Muslim, he is required to kill all non-believers (i.e., non Muslim).

    This seems that the Citadel was not alert when he applied for attendance. Why is he still there? When I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps 70 years ago, I to that oath and still am proud to support it today. Semper Fidelis
