The state school where girls are forced to wear hijabs in classrooms and outside school
by Craig Mackenzie
Pupils have to wear hijabs in and out of class for the first time at a state-backed school in Blackburn.
The cover-up was ordered at the 800-pupil Tauheedul Islam Girls' High School where students already have to dress in long purple tunics over black trousers to ensure flesh is not seen.
Under the rules, pupils must 'wear the hijab outside the school and home, recite the Koran at a least once a week' and not have stationery which shows 'unIslamic images' like pictures of pop stars.
