    Several British Muslim schools forcing EVERY pupil to wear the veil

    Several British Muslim schools forcing EVERY pupil to wear the veil - and Ofsted inspectors have approved them.
    One of the schools insists that fees are paid in cash and warns parents against speaking to the local education authority.

    All three schools have been approved by education watchdog Ofsted, which inspects private faith schools to ensure they prepare pupils for life in modern Britain and 'promote tolerance and harmony between different cultural traditions'.
    The schools' dress codes yesterday provoked anger among mainsteam Muslims, who warned that pupils were in danger of being 'brainwashed'.

    The three schools causing concern were Madani Girls' School in Tower Hamlets, east London, Jamea Al Kauthar, in Lancaster and Jameah Girls' Academy in Leicester.
    All three are independent, fee-paying, single-sex schools catering for girls aged 11 to 18.


    Philip Hollobone, the Tory MP who has attempted to bring in a Private Members' Bill to ban wearing of the burka in public, said: 'It is very sad in 21st century Britain that three schools are effectively forcing girls as young as 11 to hide their faces.

    'How on earth are these young ladies going to grow up as part of a fully integrated society if they are made to regard themselves as objects at such a young age?'

    If the wearing of the Veil is part of their uniform, then there is very little anyone can do. Parents probably sign a waver saying that they agree to it. What is more disturbing is the possibility of other kinds of cultural 'brainwashing', but nevertheless, the compulsory veil is indicative of how the schools are being run.

    Unfortunately you're right, but the problem at the root of a lot of these faith school issues is that although they do fall under the general auspices of OFSTED, 'religious education' falls outside their remit, something the schools have cottoned on to, so very often other subjects, the sciences in particular, are being taught under the umbrella of 'religion', leading to the teaching of things like creationism and intelligent design as being factual, and there's nothing that OFSTED can do about it under the present laws.

    Its more indicative of how this once great proud Christian country is losing its heritage, how we have let the failed policy of multiculturalism run amok and how our political masters in westminster and local government are aiding and abetting the break up of our strong traditional communites.

    Personally though if muzzies want to segregate their kids away from my own I am all for it. The scary thing though is that the moral christian majority are paying for these alien and abhorrent practices.

    To allow such outdated ideas to take root on British soil is nothing short of madness; and will without a doubt split the communities before they can unite! A British government that allows such practices to take place are FAILING the British people and are destroying any future hope of a peacful co-existence in our country! There should only be one set of LAWS to rule a nation, British law has been quite enough for people past-n-present and should be allowed to continue without interference from any other laws, failure to adhere to this will always bring conflict between incoming cultures!

    Re: Several British Muslim schools forcing EVERY pupil to wear the veil

    Veil is a sign of woman liberation from Current Naked liberalism, unethical fashion, social harassment, over consciousness about figure etc and become a sex icon and toy of the troy.

    Veil is not mere name of piece of cloth but it also has complete women education and training to enjoy her full, fledge life without any fear and become tradable commodity and symbol of enjoyment.

    Europe is needlessly focussing the "veil issue" which relates to the lives of a very small portion of European society. It is estimated that there are only about 2000 Muslim women in France and 30 in Belgium who wear burqa. European Establishments concern with the affairs of such a tiny minority represents a clear instance of cultural bigtory. Those wearing burqa were ridiculed as "walking-coffins" or " asymmetrical cylinders". In very cold winter people walk about with scarves tightly wrapped around their face. In those cases no security issue arises, but the wearing of burqa raises security concern. Burqa is regarded as a symbol of male domination by the self-proclaimed torchbearers of liberty but they do not know that Islam gave women the rights that the west could not even think about till 20th century. Burqa is worn as a matter of choice. Nowadays young women choose to wear full veil seeing it as a powerful statement of identity, The parliaments of various European countries are voting to legislate the banning of the veils, In Switzerland a ban on minarets was imposed. The campaign against Islamic symbols is on the rise because of a sense of insecurity in some Europeans. A ban on the burqa is bound to widen the differences rather than bridging them. It will just encourage discrimination against Muslims in European society.

    Niqab is part of freedom of expression and religion. It might be something you don’t like or respect, but it is the choice of women to make, if they want to cover their faces then they should and in many societies are free to do so.

    Wearing the Niqab has never been a security threat, and if one was to say in case it becomes a security threat, let’s BAN women from expressing their beliefs and determining for themselves what they want, then I say INCREASE and IMPROVE the security of institutions.

    There might be some Muslims who deny the niqab as having any legitimate basis in Islam, but when faced with evidence from Islamic traditions, I wonder, what evidence to they bring to support their preposterous arguments.

    And, Let’s for the sake of the argument say this has nothing to do with Islam, it still has everything to do with the right of women to determine for themselves how they want to dress.

    According to some western feminists, ban on burqa is violation of fundamental human right to choice for dress. To them the law does not aim at defending Muslim women rights but restricting the same. The burqa ban is, in fact, liberticide, they argue. And it will not defend women dignity but increase racist aggression against Muslim women wearing veils.

    The niqab, hijab, and burqa are all Islamic, as they have been customary in parts of the Muslim world and are bound up in Muslim scripture and tradition for hundreds of years. Such clothes may very well have been inherited by Islam from pre-Islamic cultures, too. But that doesn’t change the fact that the clothes are closely identified with Islam. As for any rules REQUIRING or BANNING clothes are unnecessary.

    Not covering whole face or not is up to interpretation of various schools of thought and they shall be accountable on their intentions behind interpretation but I have numerous examples around me where women are doing complete veil and they are very much professional and active in every walk of life and living a very "respectable" and healthy life along with every contemporary suitable fashion and ornaments they may feel comfortable with.

    Re: Several British Muslim schools forcing EVERY pupil to wear the veil

    Put it this way Iftikhar, I have no problem with people choosing to wear a veil. If you want to express yourself that way then you are welcome to. What I do take issue with is forcing people to wear the veil. We live in a LIBERAL society. Liberal means freedom. The issue is not (or, rather, should not be) about whether the wearing of the veil is a good or bad thing (personally I don't like them but that's just personal preference), It is about giving people, and especially children, a choice. Faith schools don't force children to worship their god, or force them to wear clothes in accordance with their faith (for example, the cap in Jewish faith schools) so why should Islamic schools be any different?

    Agree Nicholas, for choice they could segregate themselves completely and go back to whatever third-world country they came from, instead of turning this into a thirld-world country to suit them.
