Veil Teacher Sacked

A teaching assistant who refused to remove her veil when teaching has been sacked. The whole episode made major news because it came during the debate over veils in general. Aisha Azmi had been suspended on full pay but has now been dismissed.

This site reported on her links to the extremist group Tablighi Jamaat. And it then turned out that she'd been told to wear the veil by one of their preachers.

One can expect her to take legal action against the school; after all she won't be paying the costs of any court cases.
