The BBC have reported that…
A former chairman of governors has launched an appeal to overturn a ban imposed on him over an alleged “Trojan Horse” Muslim takeover plot in schools.
Tahir Alam was banned from involvement in schools by the Department for Education (DfE) in September 2015.
Martin Chamberlain QC said Mr Alam had “espoused a conservative, intolerant and narrow faith-based ideology” and “believed that the practices associated with this ideology should be imposed on state-funded non-faith schools with predominantly Muslim pupils.”
Under the ban, Mr Alam is prohibited from holding governor roles in all independent schools, academies, free schools, and maintained schools.
