Back on topic: The more I read about this girl's case, the more I realise that she is not a victim of an anti-Islam school rule. She is a victim of the actions of the extreme wing of her own religion. After 11/9, Muslims were not the most popular group in Britain. This is a fact, even though it should not have been the case. This girl seems to have turned in on herself in the face of this, and turned to a more extreme style of Islam than her parents (this surprised me. Of course, it's possible, but it's usually the other way around). Almost overnight, her friends noticed the change from a 'normal' girl to a hyper-religious one. The robe is no better, with regard to Al-Qur'an itself, than anything else that covers the whole body - long sleeves, long trousers and a headscarf would serve just as well. It's a cultural thing, like a kilt for a Scot, rather than a religious one.
How sad that Muslim extremists should make life so hard for their fellow believers. Although said extremists would probably view this case as a victory.
lol- shes gonna get so much sh*t at school now for it!
socialists are people who go down the pub and socialise
