White parents' refusal to send children to Sikh school

Nihal at 10 is asking, can you understand why white parents don't want to send their children to a Sikh Faith school? Because of a shortage of school places in Buckinghamshire, some white children are being sent to Khalsa Secondary Academy in Stoke Poges from September - even though it wasn't one of their six choices. The parents aren't happy saying their children won't fit in with the Sikh ethos. What do you think? Do you have sympathy for them? After 11, our motoring guru Mike Rutherford answers your questions. And after midday, Nihal speaks to director, Siddartha Sharma, and actor, Shiv Jhala about their film Arjun & Alison - it's a revenge thriller that tackles racism.
