Female teachers at Islamic school 'made to sign contract agreeing to wear headscarf even if they're not Muslim'
by Inderdeep Bains and Ben Spencer
Teachers at an Islamic school have complained that they are being ordered to wear the hijab – even if they are not Muslim.
Employees at the Al-Madinah free school say they are 'concerned' by its practices, which include banning non-halal food and forcing female pupils as young as four to sit at the back of the class away from boys.
Female members of staff, some of whom are not Muslims, say they have been told to sign new contracts which force them to wear the hijab.
