A Muslim father has removed his six-year-old daughter from school in protest at her teacher who confiscated her Islamic necklace.
Muhammed Tariq, 34, said his daughter Saniya was upset after a teacher took away her religious locket because she was swinging it around in class.
The Year 2 pupil was told to take off her taweez - a chain containing verses from the Koran - after she was caught playing with it at Nottingham Academy last Monday.
