WASHINGTON - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on the Switzerland-based International Basketball Federation (FIBA) to permanently lift the ban on Muslim women athletes wearing Islamic head scarves (hijab) when it issues a final decision on its head-covering policy later this month.
