You're not very tolerant.



Under the rules, swimmers – including non-Muslims – are barred from entering the pool in normal swimming attire.


No, they aren't very tolerant.

This is the most sickening thing I've read in a while. Who the hell do they think they are, imposing their religious rules on non muslim people?

They aren't opposing anything on anyone, unless you want to swim during one of their "sessions".

Whoever made that rule is obviously a homo.

Seriously, why would you try to prevent women from wearing limited clothing?

That article is a wee bit sensationalist don't you think? Its not like they are enforcing it for everyone all the time, just in a specific time slot allocated to Muslim swimmers and if there is big enough demand to justify such a thing then I see no problem with it.

great, just what the Muslim community needs: more ignorance-oriented hate towards them... :/

also, who swims at public pools anymore? I mean come on! Get a friend with a pool in their backyard.

The Telegraph is a sensationalist paper for right-wing idiots.

Aso, I couldnt care less about Muslim only swimming sessions that last an hour having a different dress code. Nobody's forcing you to attend.
I've been here since '04.

I would be extremely pissed off if I lived in the U.K. and paid taxes. If your tax money is going to build these pools then you should be allowed to swim in a bikini whenever the hell you want.

I just hope this sort of thing never happens in Canada. It's already bad enough when people can immigrate over here and receive old age security without working a single day in Canada.

^It was the council's decision you cretin, and I think you're forgetting that it's the country for everyone who is a citizen, regardless of their religion.

Oh, and you immigrated to France to get away from all these damn immigrants? Flawless logic there, genius.

The muslims weren't doing it, it was the dumbass councils. Although yes, it is absurd. Segregation is unacceptable.

Without wanting to sound like a Mail-reading-working-class-bnp-supporting-arsehole, this is what's wrong with the UK right now.

I'm all for immigration, I have no problem with asylum seekers and I personally think that they should let whoever wants to come here come, and that if people want to practise Sharya (sp?) law, they can, but it shouldn't be imposed on non-Muslims like that.

edit: hell it shouldn't really be imposed on anyone.

So, don't go swimming for the hour and a half that this is enforced big deal.


But then that's inflicting on the freedoms of non-Muslims, isn't it?

The Daily Mail is a middle class paper. Tabloids are working class papers.

That is ridiculous... does anyone know what burqas are for?

Traditionally it is viewed that all men are sex obsessed and liable to rape women who are inappropriately dressed. The burqa (covering a woman/hiding skin) is supposed to defuse those sexual impulses of men.

Now its just an excuse to restrict women's rights in conservative areas of the Muslim world like parts of Afghanistan.

I don't think beaches outside of the Muslim world are rape-fests therefore burqas are unnecessary.

Tolerant to what? Blatant segregation?


It doesn't say that Muslims can only swim during the sessions. I'm sure Muslims could still swim during a non-Muslim swimming session if they so pleased. If anything it is accommodating to the Muslim community.

Not really.
Are the half hour sessions for children's swimming lessons restricting freedom to non-children? Do I kick up a fuss because I can't go in the pool during 65+ aqua aerobics? No, because in order for society to function we have to realise that we can't always do what we want when we want. Its just easy to hate on Muslims because twats like the Telegraph give the public an "us vs them" complex.
