"Far too often people say I don’t want to go there, and have preconceived notions of what it will be like. I always tell people you can do anything or go anywhere for a short time, it doesn’t mean you have to spend the rest of your life there. But the experience can be invaluable for your career.

Earlier this month CNN reported that  the European rights court ruled in favor of French burqa ban. In France the law says nobody can wear clothing that conceals the face in public. The penalty for doing so can be a 150 -euro fine (£120). A French Muslim women didn’t agree with this new law, she argued that the ban violated her freedom of religon and expression and brought her case to the European Court of Human Rights but the ECHR upheld the French burka ban.

The court ruled that the ban “was not expressly based on the religious connotation of clothing in question but solely on the fat that it concealed the face.Last year a You Gov poll found that 61% of Brits still want a ban on burkas. Should the Burka be banned in Britain? We asked Fathima,  Sowda and Sumeyah for their views on the news.


The burka is more of a cultural thing, it is not religious. I think banning the burka in Britain would be extreme. But I understand that if a person commits a crime you need to see their faces and if a woman is wearing a burka and commits a crime you can’t see her face.However, I still think banning British Muslim women from wearing the burka in Britain is extreme.”
Fathima, 12, Tower Hamlets

"I disagree with banning Muslim women from wearing the Burka because wearing a burka is a personal choice. Women should be able to wear what they want. You can’t tell someone to wear blue everyday if they don’t like it. Women should have the right to wear what they want."
Sowda, 14, Tower Hamlets

"Even as a Muslim I feel uncomfortable talking to a woman wearing a burkas but the burka is a more of a cultural thing than religious . There are people who want the Burka banned in Britain and I can see where people are coming from but I still think banning women from wearing it is a bit too extreme."

Last month the MailOnline reported that James Haymore, a father of three was fined £120 by his local council for taking his son to America to attend a memorial service for their great-grandfather during term-time.  Should parents be fined for taking their children on holiday during term-time? We asked Fathima and Tanya for their views on the news.

"It’s not fair that James has been fined £120 by his local council because a major thing happened in his family.  He has been fined for taking his kid to say goodbye to his grandpa. But parents who take their kids on holiday during term time for a normal holiday should be fined.Fatihma, 12, Tower Hamlets

"I think it’s disgusting that people who know how important education is are taking their children out of school during term time. There are children around the world who do not receive education and here in Britain children receive an education for free until 18. Parents who take their children on holiday during term time need to think about the bigger picture."
Tanya, 28, Tower Hamlets
