School removes student's artwork of a mother breastfeeding her baby – in case it offends Muslims during Ramadan
by Keiligh Baker
A school has been slammed by a sixth form pupil for removing her paintings of a mother breastfeeding her child - because it could offend Muslims during Ramadan.
Tapton Secondary School in Sheffield told Martha Armitage, 18, that her A-level paintings would not be displayed with other pupils' artwork because the space is currently being used as a prayer room for the duration of the religious period.
Now Miss Armitage has hit out at the decision because she believes she is being 'censored' and says she is proud of her four paintings, which took 15 hours to create, and wants them to be displayed.
