German Top Court Says Muslim School Girl Must Take Part In Mixed Swim Classes

Germany's Federal Constitutional Court-- the country's highest court-- yesterday ruled that an 11-year old Muslim school girl must take part in mixed gender swim classes. According to The Guardian, the girl's parents objected to her taking part even wearing the full-body burkini, saying it still revealed the shape of her body in violation of Islamic law.  The court concluded that there are no binding rules in Islam to define proper clothing.
