The ban is a “serious attack against Muslim honour, personality and identity” seeking to deprive Muslim women of their right to work, one of the organizers of the protest said, as quoted by the British broadcaster.
The protest comes after the country’s high judicial council banned religious symbols, explicitly mentioning hijabs, earlier this month.
According to the BBC, around 40 percent of Bosnia’s population is made up of Muslims.
