No Muslim woman as receptionist, says fatwa
From The Indian Express
Leading Islamic seminary Darul Uloom Deoband has issued a fatwa against the appointment of Muslim women as receptionists, calling it illegal and against Sharia law. “Muslim women working in offices as receptionist is un-Islamic because Muslim women are not allowed to appear before men without veil.”
Meanwhile, Mufti Zulfikar Ali, Muslim cleric and president of UP Imam organisation, upheld the fatwa and said Muslim women can work in institutions after wearing the veil but the work of a receptionist is to constantly interact with people, which should not be practised.
