What do Muslims think of Cameron's English lessons plan?

The government is to invest in English language lessons for Muslim women in England, in a bid to improve integration and to counter extremism.

David Cameron announced a £20m fund to provide English lessons in homes, schools and community facilities. The money will be targeted at "specific communities" identified by a review into segregation that is being conducted by Louise Casey, head of the government's "troubled families" unit.

The prime minister said more assertive action was needed, and spouses in the UK on a visa may not be allowed to remain if they do not learn English.

Speaking to BBC News, Muslims in east London gave their reaction to the announcement.
