It has been on the news this morning that schools will be able to ban pupils from wearing full-face veils on security, safety or learning grounds under new uniforms guidance issued by the government. This has had mixed response, mostly positive, although some Muslim groups are obviously unhappy. Whilst I can understand this type of action, I do fear that we are developing into a society where religious symbols and items will be banned completely. I can imagine that soon we will be banning the wearing of crosses and crucifixes.
