This past Wednesday, the British Court of Appeal stated that part of the students rights has been violated in the UK. In this court case of violation of school rights, it goes towards Muslim students.
For Shabina Belgum and many other Muslims in the UK, they were stopped by certain schools for wearing the Muslim clothing and were demanded to wear the official school uniforms.
With the current demand for schools to be more considerate and more aware of student’s
and human rights, schools in the UK are now starting to now keep that in mind.
As for Shabina Belgum, after stating her complaint, she moved into to a different school-which will allow her to wear Muslim clothes-.
Right now in the UK, student rights are protected but only to a certain and limited extent. Although the UK protects human rights involving education, security, and stuff, clearly from this article not all students religious rights are properly protected.
In the most logical sense I find that every single student should all have protected rights. Including
religion. By ignoring even just a single part of the student’s rights, it not only violates it but also -I think- human rights.
Also in addition to that, I also am a bit surprised that this problem is happening over there in the UK.
Based on my knowledge of Great Britain, Muslims take up as one of the largest ethic groups over in the UK, so I never found that they would end up have a problem of their religion.
In order to bring awareness towards student rights violation with in the UK, British citizens have to be able to…..
- Get adults and parents to read te article
- Gain support by both Muslims and students
- Convince schools that Muslims should be able to wear their Muslim clothing rather than their official school uniforms
