Muslim schools all over Britain are forcing female pupils as young as 11 to wear burkas, it emerged today.
Institutions say that they are ‘strict’ on uniforms for their children because full-face veils are the ‘desired dress code of a Muslim female’.
The Madani Girls School in Tower Hamlets, East London, requires all its pupils wear a black burka and a long black coat outside.
It continues: ‘The present uniform conforms to the Islamic Code of dressing and must be adhered to at all times both within the school and dismissal at the end of the day.’
On pain of stoning.
Home Office Minister Jeremy Browne has called for a national debate on whether the state should step in to prevent young women having the veil imposed upon them.
