Maajid Pinpoints Why School Was Right To Ban Burqa On Premisese


Maajid Nawaz agrees with a London school's decision to tell a Muslim mother that she cannot wear her burqa on the premises.

A Muslim mother has threatened legal action against a London school after being told not to wear the burqa, a religious face veil, on the premises.

Single mother-of-three, Rachida Serroukh, 37, said Holland Park School in Kensington discriminated against her because of her religion.

Ms Serroukh, who has worn a burqa for 14 years, was upset when a teacher told her at a parents’ evening that she would not be allowed to cover her face in school.

But Maajid Nawaz, thinks the school was right to do what they did, and on his Saturday afternoon show, he explained why.
