ASK ROSCOE: What’s a jihab?

Dear Roscoe:

Did you see where a British Airways employee couldn’t work unless she agreed to take off her cross necklace or wear it under her clothes? Yet, other religious types don’t have to wear their turbans or jihabs under their clothing. My only question is: I know what a turban is, but what he heck’s a jihab?

If I had my way, I’d ban all religion, mate.

--E. John

Dear E.:

Shoot, this here’s a jihab. (Click on the stupid Blogger-corrupted thing.) Could you imagine trying to wear something like that under your burqa? Talk about diaper rash. We’re sure there’s no religious discrimination here. Nope. Just sheer practicality, you know.

Unless, of course, you got it confused and they were really talking about a hijab. Now that’s a different story. This here’s a hijab.

Hope this helps clarify things a bit. What you really have to watch out for is them hajids. Or was that jihads? One of those. It’s all so confusing.
