British college drops Muslim veil ban amid outcry
« on: September 13, 2013, 01:08:45 PM »

One of Britain's biggest colleges on Friday dropped a ban on Muslim face veils after thousands of people signed a petition against the rule.

Birmingham Metropolitan College said on Facebook it would change its policy to allow "individuals to wear specific items of personal clothing to reflect their cultural values".

The college had earlier said it would require "the removal of hoodies, hats, caps and veils so that faces are visible", a policy that won support from Prime Minister David Cameron.

It would in effect have banned the niqab, a face veil worn by some Muslim women which covers everything except the eyes.

Cameron's spokesman said he believed educational establishments should be able to "set and enforce their own school uniform policies".

Ever creeping Sharia.

I am not a fan of islam at all, but bans on veils go against personal freedom.

If they want to wear them, fine. But NOT for driving license photos, ID photos, etc.
