Some anti-dhimmitude in, of all places, Al-Britannia: the House of Lords has ruled that the existing concessions to Muslim sensibilities made by the school were quite sufficient, and no more need be made. “School wins Muslim dress appeal,” from the BBC, with thanks to Interested:
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.
They said the school had “taken immense pains to devise a uniform policy which respected Muslim beliefs”.
It had done so “in an inclusive, unthreatening and uncompetitive way”.
