Aaron Kiely, NUS Black Students' Officer said:
"The NUS Black Students' Campaign completely condemns the decision by Birmingham Metropolitan College to ban Muslim students from wearing veils on campus.
This ban is a complete infringement on the rights to religious freedom and cultural expression and is a clear violation of a woman’s right to choose.
Women in Britain are rightly free to wear religious dress. We will be exploring all options to robustly challenge this outrageous decision.
We call on Birmingham Metropolitan College to reverse its decision and respect the fundamental rights of its diverse student population to freedom of thought, conscience, religion and cultural expression."
