Dad loses court battle to force carers to trim son’s pubic and underarm hair ‘in line with Islamic tradition’

A dad who took a care home to court because he wanted staff to trim his seriously disabled adult son’s pubic hair ‘in line with Islamic tradition’ has lost his legal battle.

The father, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was adamant the hair around his son’s privates, as well as under his arms, should be cut in line with Islamic custom.

But experts said it would put the 39-year-old at risk of injury and was pointless, as he is unable to understand his religion.
