Sweden could be set to ban all religious schools, following a proposal from the leading party ahead of this year’s election.
The Social Democratic party, which currently leads a minority government, has pledged to ban all religious free schools to tackle segregation in the country.
Ardalan Shekarabi, Sweden’s minister for Public Administration said that ‘teachers, not priests and imams should be in charge of schools’,Daily Mail reports.
The proposal is not yet backed by parliament, but several other parties have criticized establishments of more religious free schools following reports of gender separation in classes at existing institutions.
‘We have to knock down segregation to keep Sweden together… school segregation must therefore also be broken down,’ Ardalan Shekarabi told a news conference in Stockholm.
‘Teachers and pedagogues should be in charge of a Swedish school, not priests and imams,’ Mr Shekarabi said.
Omar Abu Helal, principal at an Islamic charter school in southern Sweden, slammed the proposal as ‘a violation of the European Convention of Human Rights’ and ‘the freedom of religion’.
Meet the woman who jogs naked in snow to keep her looking young
A Ukrainian jogger enjoys running through the snow naked. Inna Vladimirskaya, 32, says that she jogs and swims in the snow every weekend for the past nine years because ,she believes that the freezing temperatures are what keep her looking young and healthy.
‘Every week I take a run in the snow and then plunge into the water,’ she says.
‘Immersion in cold water makes the blood rush to the internal organs, activating their circulation, which helps break down fat and improve muscle tone.’
She says that it also helps beat muscle and joint pain and rejuvenates her skin because of the increase in oxygen supply.
‘The walrus looks much younger than its actual age, because it spends so much time in cold water. ‘Humans can reap the same benefits if they are prepared to put the hard work in. ‘I just make sure I don’t stay in the water too long, and as soon as I am out I dry myself and go straight to my warm car.’
Her most recent escapades were captured on camera by Czech photographer David Tensinsky, who’d heard of her freezing rituals from locals who see her skinny dipping every weekend.
How a director told me to show him my boobs-Jennifer Lopez
Jennifer Lopez revealed she, too, has experienced sexual harassment in Hollywood.
The singer and actress opened up to Harper’s Bazaar for the magazine’s April issue where she said that she was made uncomfortable by inappropriate demands from a director asking her to show her chest.
“I haven’t been abused in the way some women have. But have I been told by a director to take off my shirt and show my boobs? Yes, I have,” the 48-year-old told Harper’s. “But did I do it? No, I did not.”
She added that she was terrified to come forward about the experience, which occurred on one of their first meetings.
“When I did speak up, I was terrified. I remember my heart beating out of my chest, thinking, ‘What did I do? This man is hiring me!’ It was one of my first movies,” she said. “But in my mind I knew the behavior wasn’t right. It could have gone either way for me. But I think ultimately the Bronx in me was like, ‘Nah, we’re not having it.’”
She did not reveal the name of the director.
