Veil Teacher was Under Orders

Nearly two weeks ago this blog revealed the connections between Aisha Azmi and Tablighi Jamaat. Azmi is the teacher who was suspended for refusing to remove her veil during lessons. Tablighi Jamaat are the radical Islamic group that are planning to build the huge mosque next door the Olympics; a mosque whose purpose is Dawah (see here).

The Times reveals that Azmi was told to wear the veil in a personal ruling from Mufti Yusuf Sacha. The report goes on to say that Sacha teaches at the mosque run by Tablighi Jamaat in Dewsbury. That would be the same mosque that was regularly visited by two of the 7/7 bombers, and run by an organisation described as "an antechamber of fundamentalism".
