Officials from the department of the Directorate of Road Traffic and Safety Services (DRTSS) and the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) have put to bed wrangles that ensued between the two over the handling of female Muslims.

The media and social media were awash with reports of disagreements over DTRSS procedure which requested the women of faith to remove their head gear in order to have their ID’ captured.

The Road Traffic Regulations in Malawi of 2000 on acquiring drivers license, states that the applicant is supposed to have their photograph taken showing the head only without any form of head gear.

However the arrangement has been working against Muslim Women who by faith and culture are mandated to cover their heads and in some cases face, exposing the eyes only.

Reports reveal that the women have been failing to get driving licenses as they were forced to take off their Hijabs for photos a development that was seen to go against the Islamic faith.

According to a statement from the DTRSS, the development led to a series of discussions between the DRTSS and MAM where the two have finally reached a compromise.

The two have agreed that women of the veil will not be requested to remove the whole Hijab but ensure that their facial features are visible enough for recognition.

A Hijab is a veil that covers the head and chest, which is particularly worn by Muslim women in the presence of adult males outside of their immediate family.

It can further refer to any head, face, or body covering worn by Muslim women that conforms to a certain standard of modesty.
