Scout master is forced to quit after comparing a Muslim leader wearing a niqab to Darth Vader

A Scout master who compared a Muslim leader wearing a niqab, a veil covering the face, to Darth Vader has been forced to quit.

The woman featured in a Scouting magazine article where it stated she wore a veil ‘when she took the girls out canoeing’.

Outraged Brian Walker, 63 emailed the magazine saying: ‘Canoeists don’t dress like this; they need all-round unobstructed vision, they protect the group.

‘They will most likely drown wearing that Darth Vader tent’, reports the Sunday Times
