Muslim Teacher Refuses Coworker’s Handshake.
According to Norwegian online newspaper NRK, a Muslim male educator has lost his teaching position at Ekeberg Primary School after refusing to shake any of his female coworkers’ hands, which is the standard cultural greeting in Norway.Although the man invoked his right to express his religious beliefs, the elementary school finalized its decision not to extend his teaching contract.
The school maintains that the teacher’s unwillingness to adopt simple Norwegian cultural fundamentals would have a negative impact on students, as he would play a formidable role in molding their lives. Principal Bente Alfheim explained that despite warning the teacher several times that he must comply with their standards for the sake of workplace harmony, he continuously refused.
