Leicester Muslim school's admission policies are ruled 'unlawful'
Leicester's state Islamic school has been told its admissions criteria are "unlawful" because they discriminate against a Muslim group.
The Schools Adjudicator ruled that it was wrong Madani High gave Sunni Muslims priority over Shias.
The school's policy also breaks the Sex Discrimination Act by turning away pupils to create the same number of boys and girls.
It is the second time in two years the Evington Valley Road school has been judged to have an unlawful admissions policy.
