The banning of the face veil at one of the largest colleges in the country is setting a dangerous precedence. Muslim women already face many challenges in society leading to marginalisation and discrimination. We are underrepresented in education and subsequently in public life and the workforce. Decisions like the one taken by the leadership at Matthew Bolton College make things worse for women who already face an uphill battle against endemic discrimination.
Please join our protest against this Islamophobic and illogical decision to ban the face veil. We need to take a stand against such hysterical and discriminatory decisions. Brothers welcome, as are none muslims who understand the need to preserve the rights of muslim women and freedom of expression for society as a whole.
