Ofsted interrogation of hijabi Muslim pupils institutionalised Islamophobia

26th Jan 2018

Sir, What right has the Ofsted to interrogate Muslim children as young as 4 years old? You rightly argue in your editorial that this is nothing but political and Islamophobic. (The Muslim News December 29).
I believe it is also discriminating as no other faith community children are going to be interrogated about their faith and the mode of their dress.

All school children have a right to wear according to their faith. Interrogating Muslim pupils of why they are wearing the hijab shows how institutionalised is Islamophobia in the Government and other Establishment.
