UCMINISTIRES: The continuing course of the creeping sharia across the globe.  Thankfully some more moderate Moslems are voicing their concern against such silly extremism.  On that matter it’s good to know that there are still some level headed Moslems making their voices heard.  But will it make any difference only time will tell.

Leaflets have been sent to residents and government offices in the city of Lhokseumawe to inform them about the new rules.

The mayor of the city, Suaidi Yahya, said the change in law is to save people’s ‘morals and behaviours’.

The new regulation has already been criticised – including from well known Muslim activists.

Lhokseumawe is in the province of Aceh, which is the only Indonesian province which follows Sharia law.

According to Mr Yahya, women will only be allowed to sit side saddle. He claimed that when women straddle the bike seat it violates Islamic values.

Speaking to the BBC, he said: ‘When you see a woman straddle, she looks like a man. But if she sits side-saddle, she looks like a woman.’

The new regulation will be assessed by the local government in a month. It could then by turned into a by-law.

Mr Yahya admitted that if women do not follow the rule, they could face punishment. ‘Once it has become a by-law, automatically there will be sanctions,’ he said.

A number of Muslim activists have criticised the regulation.

Ulil Abshar Abdalla, based in Jakarta, said: ‘How to ride a motorbike is not regulated in Sharia. There is no mention of it in the Koran or Hadiths.’

Muslim couple sue school who banned their nine-year-old daughter from wearing a hijab

A school is being sued by a Muslim couple after it banned pupils from wearing the traditional Islamic headscarf.

They launched their legal battle with St Cyprian’s Greek Orthodox primary in south London after withdrawing their nine-year-old from the school when she was banned from wearing one.

The parents say it would be a sin for their daughter’s head to be uncovered while in the presence of male teachers as she has ‘reached puberty’.

After failing to gain the support of the school governors, they have now launched a legal action to overturn the ban.

The school now faces a High Court Case amid claims that the uniform policy is a violation of the child’s religious freedom.

But Kate Magliocco, head of St Cyprian’s Greek Orthodox Primary School in Thornton Heath, south London, said the parents were informed about their uniform policy when their child, whose brother remains a pupil at the school, was first admitted at seven.

She said: ‘The school is being taken to the High Court by parents of a Muslim girl.

‘They believe that, because she is nine, she has reached puberty and it would be a sin for her not to be covered because the school has male teachers.

‘The decision not to allow her to wear a headscarf was taken by the governing body.

‘The school has a very particular uniform policy, which is shared with parents and, as head, I must follow the plan.

Now the fact that the school policy was already written down and everyone who goes to that school abides by it, yet what we see is the course by extremist to change times and season to conform to something which even many Moslem women believe is the subjugation of their rights as women.  I wonder what would be the course of action if the girl in question was unwilling to wear such clothing, another honour killing in the name of Allah and Muhammad.  Now it’s seems to me that if the parents wanted her to attend a school that allows such clothing they would have originally picked such a school.  WHY pick a school in which they know has a policy of school clothing that is contrary to Islamic dress.  I suspect this was a deliberate act to change British values.  The need to take the whole matter to a court of law only highlights an agenda over and above this original issue. If they like the school then there should be a willingness to abide by the dress code, everyone else does. If they win their case then every school in the country will be morally obliged to have a school dress policy that applies to everyone else but Moslems.
