Dhimmi’s At Birmingham College Burka Ban U-Turn To Appease Moaning Muslims


48 hours ago i held Birmingham Metropolitan College in high regard for their banning of head wear and face coverings which included the niqab and burka for Muslim females. Which makes sense because who knows who or what’s really lurking beneath the black blanket. It made a change to see somebody make a sensible decision even if it did risk upsetting the minority of the minority that actually wear them. Things soon change, They have gone from hero to zero in the time it took them to roll over and say to the moaning Muslims  “OK, we changed our minds you can wear your burka”


By going back on their original statement Birmingham college have done the worse thing possible. Their gutless cowardly U-turn has not only have they put a nail in their own coffin they have put one in every other place of educations coffin as well, who may at some point wished to introduce similar rules on face coverings.

What sort of message have the college dhimmis sent out for the future. Moan …moan… moan….cry discrimination and we will look like fools by giving in to Muslim demands.  The decision makers should have known better. It is a much often used stealth jihad tactic. When it comes to moaning ,spitting dummies out and playing the victim nobody does it better than Muslims.

Birmingham Metropolitan College U-turn statement appears to only be in regards Muslims wearing face coverings and discriminates against the majority non-Muslims with the ban on non identity concealing clothing such as hats and hoodies still in place. Both of which are a popular items of clothing worn by Britain’s youth. They are more part of British life than Muslim Burkas are that is for sure.

Where was the ‘White Students Union(sic)’ fighting the corner of the majority when you need them? OH SILLY ME, of course there isn’t one because that would be deemed as racist. Unlike the exclusive ‘Black’ Students Union which is not considered racist by leftists who were putting pressure on the powers that be to reverse the ban on  face coverings claiming it’s discriminating against Muslims.  Race agitator Aaron Kiely from the union claimed the ban was ‘a clear violation of a woman’s right to choose.’ Therefore in a non sexist world a man should have the same rights to choose also – to wear a balaclava or ski mask to class then!

There are 100’s of thousands British people of all ages and walks of life that feel extremely uncomfortable and intimidated in the presence of Muslim women with anti social face coverings on. Even more daunting would be needing to have some kind of interaction with them. Hardly appealing talking to a pair of eyes. They give off negative vibes just by looking at them.  “Lost ?? Tough. Do not approach me and ask for directions you low kafir”

Regardless of the excuses or religious reasons given by Islamists to justify wearing the niqab/burka there is nothing in the Quran ordering Muslim women to wear them. If it was then every Muslim woman would be walking round in them not just 10 % of them. Also very few Muslim women actually wear them by choice although they may tell you otherwise to avoid a beating. It will be some control freak Islamic extremist family member ordering them to wear them. The kind of Islamofascist male that thinks its acceptable to beat and sexually abuse women because they are beneath the male and its his God-given right to do so.  Taliban oppressive Islamic ideology.

BAN THE BURKA – If they want to wear it so badly there is plenty of Islamic countries where they can wear it 24/7

Ban on Muslim students wearing religious veils scrapped by Birmingham college after public outcry

  • Birmingham Metropolitan College had asked teenagers to remove items
  • Staff said it was for safety and ensures people are ‘identifiable at all times’
  • But guidelines divided opinion, with one 17-year-old calling it ‘disgusting’
  • David Cameron backed educational institutions setting their own rules
  • But Deputy PM Nick Clegg said he was ‘uneasy’ about the idea

A college which tried to ban pupils wearing the full facial veil for security reasons has abandoned the rule after a public outcry.

All students, staff and visitors to Birmingham Metropolitan College were told they must have their faces visible at all times so they are ‘easily identifiable’.

But the move was heavily criticised by some students, one describing the policy as disgusting. Nick Clegg said he was ‘uneasy’ about the idea.

More than 800 people claimed they planned to attend a protest against the policy today to stand up to what they said was an ‘Islamophobic’ decision.

David Cameron’s spokesman said the Prime Minister defended the right of educational institutions to be able to ‘set and enforce their own school uniform policies’.

But Deputy Prime Minister Mr Clegg said he felt ‘uneasy’ about a veil ban in a schools, although he could understand why it was needed to identify people at airport checkouts.

The college which has 44,000 students and is the third largest in the UK, said headwear poses a security risk and their policy ‘includes the removal of hoodies, hats, caps and veils so that faces are visible’.

This would stop female Muslim pupils from wearing the niqab, the full facial veil where only the woman’s eyes are visible, or the burqa where the eye area is covered in mesh.

But the college has now issued a statement saying it has decided to modify its stance to allow individuals to wear ‘specific items of personal clothing to reflect their cultural values’.

More than 9,000 people signed an online petition set up by NUS Black Students’ Campaign calling on the college’s principal Dr Christine Braddock to remove the ban.

‘As a consequence, we will modify our policies to allow individuals to wear specific items of personal clothing to reflect their cultural values.

‘The college will still need to be able to confirm an individual’s identity in order to maintain safeguarding and security.

‘The necessity to comply with national regulations, examination board requirements and applicable legislation will remain an overriding priority in all circumstances, as will the need to ensure that effective teaching and learning methodologies are applied.

‘We have listened to the views of our students and we are confident that this modification to our policies will meet the needs of all of our learners and stakeholders.

‘We remain committed to ensuring that students are provided with a safe and welcoming environment and the best education and training opportunities available.’

Birmingham Ladywood Labour MP Shabana Mahmood welcomed the college’s change in policy.

She said: ‘This change in policy is enormously welcome. The college has made a wise decision to rethink its policy on banning veils for a group of women who would have potentially been excluded from education and skills training at the college had the ban been enforced.

‘My thanks go out to all those who backed the campaign.’


Case by case: Schools can outlaw veils but only after a consultationCase by case: Schools can outlaw veils but only after a consultation

Headteachers have the power to order students to remove veils after a series of high profile legal cases.

In a key 2007 case, a High Court judge rejected a bid by a pupil to be allowed to wear the niqab in class.

Although the 12-year-old’s three older sisters had worn the headwear at the same school in Buckinghamshire, teachers said it impeded their ability to communicate with her.

They said they needed to be able to tell if a pupil was paying attention, engaged with her work or distressed.

After the case, the Government issued guidance that enabled headteachers to ban full-face veils on grounds of security, safety or learning.

It said teachers were justified in enforcing uniform rules which mean they can see and make eye contact with pupils.

Schools need to be able to identify pupils to maintain order in classrooms and to spot any intruders, it added.

But rather than a French-style blanket ban on face coverings in all public spaces, the Department of Education said institutions could outlaw the coverings as long as they carried out a proper consultation.

Updated Government guidance released last year clearly continues to back heads who choose to ban face-coverings.

It says it is ‘still lawful’ to restrict the freedom of pupils to express their religion on the grounds of ‘health, safety and the protection of the rights and freedoms of others’.

And religious freedoms do not mean pupils can practise their beliefs ‘at any time, in any place, or in any particular manner,’ the  guidance adds.

  1. This is a very interesting comment on what may look like a small thing but could have masses of repercussions.
    Please let me know where the article was first seen as I want to send it to some of my very sensible friends ! I know that is discriminatory too

  2. Banning clothes for whatever reason is just pathetic reactionary and totalitarian and I don’t care what pompous justifications you can come up for doing it, its still fundamentally wrong. The UK is already a bit of a weird “do as I say” state, stop supporting this sort of rubbish and making it worse. There goes freedom of speech to wear what you want. We are told it is a democracy yeah right. There are girls who probably go to this college half naked but they are allowed and those who cover are not allowed. A person can come half naked with a skirt but not with a veil. I can understand it making other students feel safer but only if there has been a history of attacks carried out by Muslim girls wearing niqab. Security reason? What complete nonce ! When has the niqab caused any security threats ? Never! If it’s illegal to wear “face coverings” in public then Halloween is doomed. Face covering? Would that extend to my precious Ray Bans? Why not… apparently face-recognition cameras don’t work when confronted by the simple sun glasses. And what about bushy beards and moustaches? And what next… hoods, floppy wide-brimmed hats, anti-pollution masks, scarves? Where does this silliness end?

    So gun crime, gang crime, alcohol related crime, drugs related crimes are all not issues – what is an issue is women wearing a face veil – and the number of reported crimes by such women are??? Anti-social behavior is not about how you dress – its about how you behave. If these women were anti-social – they wouldn’t be in a college seeking an education! If one has the freedom to remove clothing then they must respect another’s freedom in not removing their clothing. The simple solution to this whole issue would have been hiring a female security officer. But no!

    I love how non-Muslims are on DM teaching me my own religion. Please actually research before making bold statements like “Niqaab is not a religious requirement.” What a pathetic ban, security for who exactly? Just causing trouble really, other universities are open to the Niqaab and we interact with both staff and students just fine, we also worry about our safety and security and are more than happy to lift it up at airports and banks etc. You don’t know the women behind the veil nor have you ever spoken to one, so don’t be so quick to judge the book by its cover.

    As a Muslim, I agree with the university. However, guess what the reaction will be… Hundreds of Muslim students will cover up ‘as an act of support’, there will be demonstrations and finally the university will be forced to change their policy… A recent revert to Islam chooses to wear niqab. She does not have a husband and none is forcing her to wear the niqab. She chooses to wear my beautiful niqab to preserve her modesty. Just for peoples information when security’s a concern the women can remove the veil and the few I’ve spoken to do.. On the grand scale of things how much of an issue is this really? Don’t be distracted. Around 0.1% of the UK’s Muslim population were a veil.

    As a Muslim woman who wears a veil. She has found the comments to be quite discriminating. If a woman is acceptable when wearing a little amount of clothes, then why should a woman not be left alone when she herself chooses to be fully covered. Where is freedom of act gone?

    Security reasons are just a cover for racism and discrimination. If you cant see he face, you’ve never seen he before, how would you know it is she? Do you usually ask for a passport when speaking to someone? And how many women in niqab have you heard of in the last thirty years who have been involved in crime compared to those that don’t wear the niqab?

    I hope you all consider how this would affect us.If it is my belief that I am to wear it, why shouldn’t I be allowed, I don’t stop others from what they do, I don’t interfere or involve myself in the affairs of others. So is ‘i cant see who im talking to’ really a reason enough to ban hijab?

    This is the UK, not Saudi Arabia! Muslim women who wear the niqab here do so because they choose to. So it’s ok for women to parade around half naked in the streets, but the minute she wants to cover up it’s a crime?

  3. Rubbish Again…. where’s the freedoms that this British society believes in so much gone. when it comes to all other aspects of life freedom, freedom, freedom. just shows the whole notion of freedom is flawed.Also some muslims believe that it is an obligation to wear the niqab. the media seemed to have kicked up a fuss on Taliban not allowing women to receive education and malala yousafzai was bought to the uk as this is where they seem to be giving women rights, how is this the case now with the niqaab ban? are you not doing the same as what the Taliban did. yet another flaw in the secular liberal democratic system.
