Britain: The Hijab as the Entry Point for Islam

  • Islamists seem to be influencing the British school system with ease: there is simply no solid opposition to them. The government even stays silent about the harassment and intimidation.
  • Islamists in Britain seem to be intent on establishing regressive requirements, such as the hijab for young girls, wife beating, making homosexuality illegal, death for apostates, halala rituals in divorce, and exploitation of women and children through Sharia courts as part and parcel of British culture.
  • That St. Stephen’s School allowed itself to be blackmailed in this way bodes ill for both Britain and its education system.

St. Stephen’s School in East London recently imposed a ban on hijabs (Islamic headscarves), but reversed its decision after administrators received hundreds of threats from enraged Muslims.Among the targeted officials from the primary school was the head of governors, Arif Qawi, who had supported the ban on the grounds that the girls wearing hijabs were less likely to integrate socially with their peers. As a result of the outcry, Qawi submitted his resignation, saying that members of the staff were afraid to come to the school.

Ofsted: Hijab ban ‘not Islamophobic’ – BBC Newsnight

Should Muslim schoolgirls under the age of eight wear the hijab or religious headscarfs? Ofsted – which inspects schools in England – has supported the headteacher of a predominantly Muslim state primary in London who wanted a ban. In a speech at a Church of England conference, Ofsted’s chief inspector Amanda Spielman said that schools had to pursue “muscular liberalism,” in response to “those who want to actively pervert the purpose of education”. Kirsty Wark discusses these issues with Amanda Spielman and with Sajid Gulzar, CEO and executive head of the Prince Albert Community Trust and Gita Sahgal, founder of the Centre for Secular Space.
