The sharia creep is becoming more and more visible everyday. No longer operating from the darkness, it's now visible to the naked eye in daylight.
According to The Independent, a secondary school has caused controversy with Muslim parents because their swimming cap style headscarves are “not modest enough”.
The report says that Muslim parents launched an online petition in response to the new veil policy at Sir John Thursby Community College, in Burnley, Lancashire.

Previously, students were allowed to wear any style or length hijab as long as it was black. However, the school found the veils were “not being worn correctly” and started planning new veils.
It is alleged that the new veils pose a suffocation risk if pulled back and are “very displeasing”.
Shah Hussain, the councillor for Daneshouse and Stoneyholme told The Telegraph several parents contacted him about the headscarves. “Children have told them it is not appropriate. The whole point is it is supposed to protect the wearer's modesty and that does not happen. They are quite unhappy about it,” he said.

“It is quite short and leaves the chest area not covered. The wearers are saying it should serve a purpose and if it is not serving the purpose why should they wear it?” he added.
As Robert Spencer points out on Jihad Watch, “The Islamization of the UK is out of control: Sharia courts are operating beyond the reach of British law and teaching children fundamental British values has been deemed an act of “cultural supremacism” by the National Union of Teachers.”
However, the school's headmaster, David Burton, is defending the policy. In a letter to parents he wrote, “We are sorry that there have been suggestions that the school is against headscarves. This is not true. We respect fully the wishes of girls to wear a headscarf and we always have done.”
“Students, staff and parents had expressed some concerns that some students were not wearing headscarves correctly although the rules had not changed on headscarves. We looked towards changing the uniform policy to include a uniform headscarf as we were aware that a change needed to be considered. We started a consultation process in September and we are still collecting the views of parents,” the letter stated.
