Freedom for Muslim girls in the UK

Freedom for Muslim girls
Currently in the UK muslim women are fully entitled to dress according to their religion in veils, burqas and other in all places of education and work. This goes hand in hand with the ethos of religious freedom in the UK. The Muslim religion is very much respected in Britain and is often in the country's media, most recently when a Catholic girl was made to remove her cross necklace during the school day questions were raised as why was it ok for one group and not the other.

A Liberal Democracy, named Jeremy Browne has highlighted an issue surrounding the religious dress but with a different insight. He feels that those, especially second generation, migrants may feel under pressure to be wearing their veils and almost have them imposed on them when it can make integrating into society difficult, in certain areas. Second generation muslims are of British nationality and are every bit as British as any other citizen, they may not want to be wearing Islamic dress in their everyday life and Jeremy Browne feels this needs a national debate to aid freedom of muslim girls and give them the choice.

The Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg has hinted towards a ban on Islamic dress in UK classrooms but this is not what the Lib Dem member is looking for, he wants choice, not rules imposed on these girls and women.

Birmingham is a city in the UK with the highest percentage of Migrants and second generation migrants of Muslim religion and it recently hit headlines when an education establishment, Birmingham Metropolitan College, took the decision to ban all Islamic dress in its premises. The reason was that the Head of the school wanted all students to be ‘easily identifiable at all times’. Though a petition was drawn which obtained over 8,000 signatures in under two days to revoke the Heads decision, under UK law it is the schools own choice to set out their clothing policies.

Jeremy Browne has been backed by Nick Clegg who says that the UK will not become a country where peoples clothing is dictated too, he agrees with choice and freedom for all. A female MP, Dr Sarah Wollaston writes for the Telegraph newspaper and she has said that veils in public areas are deeply offensive, and that they make the females of society ‘invisible’. Woman in the UK are 100% equal to men, they receive equal pay, equal job opportunities and there is no discrimination. For the UK to move forward and through all the migration issues integrating those from different religions and ethnicities is vital.

A Tory MP, Peter Bone has highlighted a separate issue and that is of security. It is a serious issue which needs much debate but the ability to see peoples faces especially in places of authority is of the essence when we are a country constantly under the threat of attacks of terrorism.
