LONDON: British Airways has suspended a Christian woman who wears a necklace with a crucifix to work, even though it allows Muslims and Sikhs to wear headscarves and turbans, a newspaper reported on Saturday.

Nadia Eweida, 55, told the Daily Mail, that she decided to sue her employer for religious discrimination after having been suspended without pay for three weeks. "I will not hide my belief in the Lord Jesus. British Airways permits Muslims to wear a headscarf, Sikhs to wear a turban and other faiths religious apparel," Eweida said. "Only Christians are forbidden to express their faith."

British Airways said: "The case is ongoing, and is still under investigation, and as such it would be inappropriate to discuss it in detail."
