Muslims to open Private School after court rules girls MUST learn to swim with boys

Swimming-pool-ruling-754966The ruling was made after a girl refused to take part in a swimming class.

The ruling was made after an 11-year-old girl refused to take part in a swimming class – claiming even a burkini violated strict Islamic dress codes for women.

At the lower courts, the youngster argued that the full-body swimsuit designed for Muslim woman still showed off her figure.

Her furious parents took the complaint even higher and appeared before the European Court of Human Rights – but their appeal was ultimately rejected and their children were told they must participate in the mixed-gender lessons.

Now the couple has vowed their children will continue to boycott the classes – and have even looked at setting up their own private school in opposition to the court ruling.
