'Inside Iqra: Slough's Muslim primary school'

Masood Khan, Guardian, Inside Iqra: Slough's Muslim primary school - video, 12 Dec 2011 "In 2008, after years of campaigning and opposition, Iqra opened as one of the first Muslim primary schools in the United Kingdom. Film-maker Masood Khan talks to its head, chair of governors and a teaching assistant whose children attend the school, who make the case for faith-based education. Taking the opposite position, Jonathan Romain of the Accord Coalition tells Khan of his fear that such schools ghettoise children and fail to prepare them for a multicultural society."
