The official organization for child protection in the northern Belgian region of Flanders has revoked a daycare license from the wife of an Imam from Anvers, who has defended a so-called “extremist” position on the headscarf in public schools. While the woman is not named, her husband, imam Nordine Taouil, feels they have been discriminated and negatively characterized, asking why his wife and children should be punished. Taouil, 35, suggested to Muslim students to boycott schools were the headscarf was banned.
