US Air Force Allowed to Wear Turban and Hijabs

US Air Force Allowed to Wear Turban and Hijabs

US Air Force personnel were officially allowed to wear long hair, beards, turbans, and hijabs. Corresponding amendments have been made to the rules governing the appearance of military personnel. It is reported by CNN.


The US Air Force Command amended the rules governing the appearance of military personnel, greatly simplifying the process of issuing permits to Muslims and Sikhs to wear “religious clothing”. The new rules apply to beards, long hair, turban and hijabs.

According to the amendments, wearing the above items of clothing during the service is allowed in cases where the appearance of the soldier remains "tidy and conservative."

It is indicated that the process of considering applications of Muslim soldiers or Sikhs serving in the United States cannot exceed 30 calendar days, in the case of service outside the United States - no more than 60 days.

Previously, these categories of military personnel could only apply on an individual basis to the name of the command, and the command already decided whether or not to wear clothing that was not part of the standard equipment of the military. The process of considering such applications could take a long time, since it was not regulated by anything.

The decision to amend the rules for wearing uniforms by the US Air Force was warmly welcomed by human rights organizations of Muslims and Sikhs, calling it a "step in the right direction."

    The new rules apply to beards, long hair, turban and hijabs.

    Tolerance and all that jazz ... The army should be conservative. The army is the face of the state. If everyone looks different, the army will resemble anarchist units from Soviet films.

    the wearing of the above items of clothing during service is permitted in cases where the appearance of the soldier remains "neat and conservative".

    With national elements of clothing, the appearance of a soldier will not look conservative.

        In fact, not everything is so simple. Muslim military during the period of hostilities is allowed not to perform prayers and does not fast. This is what Muslims told me during fasting.

                It's outrageous!
                Turban and hijabs were allowed, but no burqa!
                Human rights defenders! You, most importantly, do not stop! Strive for the right to wear a burqa!
                And then make the duty of the entire US Army five times a day to pray!

            Prayer can not be performed in war and on a campaign, and therefore probably in exercises.

        Great idea!
        And Native American soldiers are allowed to wear feathers on their head.
        Military Jews - a pile. (This is allowed to observe the Sabbath - to score for service on Saturdays)
        Holders of turban and hijabs - a five-day prayer every day, plus, again, dynamically prepare combat training on Fridays ...
        African Americans introduce a uniform with gold chains and trousers with a knee down to the knee. They should be allowed to smoke nonsense at the training grounds, let the enemy think that this is a smoke screen ...

          These are perfectly normal things. In the Israeli army
          Bedouins, Circassians, Druze. Each has its own religious characteristics.
          They are treated with understanding. And the overall combat efficiency of the army is increasing,
          as the motivation of these groups is growing.

    It is reasonable from any point of view. If military operations are carried out in an Islamic country, a jihad trump card with infidels is knocked out from opponents. Secondly, the Islamic part of society is drawn into the army, which, in addition, consolidates the society itself.

      Nonsense. Firstly, in Islam, as such, a whole sea of ​​different currents. Secondly, the followers of Islam, they themselves can not understand, and destroy each other with enviable zeal. And thirdly, objects of worship and clothing are different in different countries and among different peoples, even if they belong to the same conditional Islam. An example on the other hand, Catholic Christians, as part of foreign armies, will in no way evoke a sense of solidarity among Orthodox Christians, and vice versa. All these American “innovations” are nothing but a tribute to modern tolerance and political correctness, and not respect for someone else’s religion at all. If allowed to army transvestites laughing wear skirts and stilettos, it will be from the same series.

    The title of the article is confusing. The United States has long been permitted to wear "religious clothing." Now they just simplified the receipt of such permission.
    Sikhs are not Muslims.
    The Russian army is allowed to wear beards. Rather, not in the Russian army, but in the Chechen army and the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Like a religious Muslim custom.

    Wearing stones in the ears, pulling the earlobes to the waist will soon also be allowed. In the name of respect for the customs of the aborigines of the island states, who entered the service in the American army. Wearing canes, pulling the penis up and upright, too. Tolerance should not only cover Muslims. The only requirement is that the canes should be the same length and stand perpendicular. This is so as not to infringe on the dignity of those who .....

    While the majority in the United States were Irish and Germans - the army command did not have to worry about fighting spirit, but demographics in America are shifting towards the Mexicans. In the world there are not many nations supplying suitable soldiers.

    No need to invent anything.
    4 words and I will prove that there is a Soul.
    1. Biofield.
    2. Law.
    3. Save.
    4. Energy.
    Add concepts to one. Get-your biofield is immortal. But aren't all your experiences recorded there?

    Next.
    The Big Bang occurred 13 billion years ago. Why not before? Was there not enough internal force for the explosion? But the explosion occurred.
    So, the forces came from outside. Who made the Big Bang and why?

    Answer.
