Vice principal of “Muslim Eton” fired, told she would go to hell for opposing rules forcing girls to wear veils during lessons

Mohiuddin“Inspiring the girls of today to become our leaders of the future” — that is, the Sharia-bound hijabis of the future Sharia Britain. No doubt while this was going on, British authorities made obsequious overtures to Mohiuddin International Girls College officials, anxious to win their support and approval.
“Vice principal of ‘Muslim Eton’ sacked and told she would go to hell for opposing rules to make all girls wear veils during lessons, tribunal hears,” by Gemma Mullin, Daily Mail, November 7, 2014 (thanks to Mick):
The vice principal of a Muslim girls’ college was sacked and told she would ‘go to hell’ after she opposed rules which tell all pupils to wear veils during lessons, a tribunal heard.
Ghazala Khan, 37, also claims she was called a ‘stupid outsider’ by her boss and barred from certain assemblies at Mohiuddin International Girls College in Burnley, Lancashire.
She told an employment tribunal in Manchester today that she was ostracised because she didn’t belong to the same sect within Islam as most of the staff.
The mother-of-one from London was sacked less than a year in to the post after she questioned why some teachers would refuse to teach girls unless they wore veils across their face, it was alleged.
She claimed the wearing of a veil was not instructed anywhere in the Qur’an, but says she was told she knew nothing about her own religion.
“And tell the believing women to reduce [some] of their vision and guard their private parts and not expose their adornment except that which [necessarily] appears thereof and to wrap [a portion of] their headcovers over their chests and not expose their adornment except to their husbands, their fathers, their husbands’ fathers, their sons, their husbands’ sons, their brothers, their brothers’ sons, their sisters’ sons, their women, that which their right hands possess, or those male attendants having no physical desire, or children who are not yet aware of the private aspects of women. And let them not stamp their feet to make known what they conceal of their adornment. And turn to Allah in repentance, all of you, O believers, that you might succeed.” (Qur’an 24:31)
Her employment ended in May 2012 during a ‘heated’ meeting with college principal Mohammed Amjad Bashir and Zahir Ahmed, a director of the Birmingham-based Mohuiddin Trust which runs the college.
The private establishment for girls over 16 was founded in October 2010 and was described as the ‘Muslim Eton’ for girls when plans were originally put forward for the school the year before.
The college, whose motto is ‘Inspiring the girls of today to become our leaders of the future’, charges £5,500 a year for international students and £4,500 for UK and European enrolments.
Mrs Khan was appointed as vice principal in 2011 but she said she clashed with the college principal after saying she and some students had some Islamic teachings they disagreed with forced upon them.
She said one fellow teacher refused to speak to her, as she did not wear a veil, and she had challenged the same tutor after he ordered all his female students to wear the niqab in his lessons.
Mrs Khan also said the college principal have warned of the school being ‘polluted’ because she had ‘let a Christian in’.
Speaking about the teacher’s conduct, she said: ‘There were quite a few times I didn’t agree with the way he would make children wear veils across their faces just so he could teach them.
Mohiuddin International Girls College, which opened its doors in October 2010, describes itself as a ‘unique and friendly institution’.
It was set up by the Mohiuddin Trust – a charity which aims to help those who are poor or under-privileged – under the leadership of Sheikh Hazrat Pir Alaudin Siddiqui Sahib, an Islamic scholar based in Pakistan.
When plans for the college for girls over 16, it described itself as the ‘Muslim Eton’.
It said it’s aim is to ‘educate and empower women regardless of their age, colour, creed or social stature.’…
