"Shabina Begum, 17, argued that banning her from wearing the jilbab at Denbigh high school in Luton, Bedfordshire, breached her rights to education and to manifest her religion, as guaranteed by the European convention on human rights. She lost two years' schooling before moving to a school which allowed her to wear the religious garb."
But she lost.
I posted on Shabina's case earlier and I have to admit that I still don't have much sympathy with her. The school seems to have offered a reasonable uniform that apparently accommodates most Muslim students at the school. But it wasn't good enough for Shabina, who preferred to lose two years of schooling rather than compromise. Foolish girl. I wish she'd use her fighting spirits for a worthier cause.
