Who moves to a western country and demands that the schools modify the dress code to suit their religion? Why do liberals support this nonsense? Aren’t they the ones who demand secularism in the schools? So why abandon these beliefs?
“The Guardian reports that Serroukh [the Muslim mother in this story] is furious with the school and plans to sue them for discrimination, despite their efforts to enforce the rules that apply to everyone, equally.”
Here again, we have a foreign culture demanding not that we simply tolerate their ways, but that we adapt our culture to suit theirs, under threat of litigation.
In a school environment, certain standards of conduct and dress are required. Specific meals are prepared. If a parent wants explicit Christian teachings offered in a Christian environment, they need to pay the tuition and send their children to a Christian school.
The argument is that there are no specific rules prohibiting this. But, of course, there are all sorts of unwritten rules that reasonable persons simply understand to exist even if they are not written down, such as students cannot come to school naked (so far). So that parent’s objections mean little.
Nevertheless, the principal went on to create a rule banning the wearing of the hijab.
He said to the parent, “Given the concerns you have raised, we are now considering a written amendment to our health and safety policy to include this specific requirement and for others to seek the approval of the governing body in all matters of concern.”
