School inspectors to question Muslim girls who wear hijabs
Muslim girls who wear the hijab to primary school will be asked why they wear it by inspectors.
The reasons given will then be recorded in school reports, amid concerns girls are being forced to wear the headscarf by their parents.
Responding to the move, Harun Khan secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, said: “It is deeply worrying that Ofsted has announced it will be specifically targeting and quizzing young Muslim girls who choose to wear the headscarf.
“It sends a clear message to all British women who adopt this that they are second class citizens, that while they are free to wear the headscarf, the establishment would prefer that they do not.”
He added: “It is disappointing that this is becoming policy without even engaging with a diverse set of mainstream Muslim voices on the topic.”
