Veil ban has damaged Birmingham's reputation, says senior city councillor
Birmingham's reputation has been "damaged" by a Muslim veil ban controversy at a city college, a senior councillor claims.
Waseem Zaffer said it had been a "sad few days" for the city but was glad "commonsense" had prevailed after a dramatic U-turn by education chiefs.
The Mail first revealed on Tuesday how students at Birmingham Metropolitan College had been banned from wearing face coverings, including the niqab, hoodies and caps, for 'security' reasons.
