Muslim school dispute with Newham over 'inclusivity'

Help

A fee-paying Muslim school in east London is accusing the local authority of blocking its development by questioning how "inclusive" it is.

Newham Council denies the claims, saying it is not against the Alif Academy but is simply concerned about the safety of its building in Forest Gate.

In this report, Kurt Barling talks to parent Marielle Lemastre, Quintin Peppiatt of Newham Council and the Alif Academy's head Hasib Hikmat.
