Muslims tried to ban Christmas celebrations, music and swimming at Trojan Horse plot school

Muslim parents claimed pupils were brainwashed by a Nativity play at a primary school at the centre of the Trojan Horse scandal, a tribunal heard.

Some parents, including strict Salafi Muslims, also refused to let their children attend swimming lessons because “their legs and heads would be uncovered”.

An employment tribunal in Birmingham also heard one parent pulled their child out of a class on the Hindu celebration of Diwali.

Mr Arif said some parents even tried to ban Christmas decorations and remove music from the curriculum.
