The Swedish Islamic school of Al-Azhar has sparked controversy with its gender segregation rules for its Muslim students.
The television show Cold Facts revealed the startling news. According to Breitbart it “showed boys and girls entering the buses through separate entrances with the boys at the front and the girls at the back”.
Gender segregation also takes place during school prayers where the students are placed in separate rooms. They are also kept apart during physical education classes. Despite this though, the other classes are in fact mixed.
When Cold Facts attempted to confront the principal of the school, Hussein Ibrahim, he refused to answer questions and threatened to call the police.
