House of Lords does it again

A school which was told it unlawfully excluded a Muslim pupil for wearing a traditional gown has won its appeal at the House of Lords.

The Court of Appeal had said Denbigh High School had denied Shabina Begum the right to manifest her religion in refusing to allow her to wear a jilbab.

But in a unanimous ruling, judges at the House of Lords overturned that.

Yet again the House of Lords have shown why we need them. I am liking the House of Lords more and more as time goes on.

I am glad that she lost. I think that the hijab and burqua should be banned in all public places including mosques. If muslims don't want to live our way they can live their way in another country.
