IHRC welcomes Shabina Begum ruling

Press Release: ISLAMIC HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION WELCOMES SHABINA BEGUM RULING

The Islamic Human Rights Commission welcomes the decision by the Appeal court earlier today to uphold the right of British student Shabina Begum to wear the Jilbab to school.

“ Shabina Begum lost two years of her education to fight to uphold her religious rights and duties. This isn't just a victory for a brave 16 year old woman, but a victory for the entire Muslim community and wider society. We hope this sends a clear signal to education institutions that schools are places to promote and celebrate diversity” said Massoud Shadjareh, Chair, Islamic Human Rights Commission


The IHRC is working to eliminate all forms of discrimination and is working to support a number of students in a similar situation to Shabina Begum.
