Do People Discriminate Against the Hijab?

Last Thursday we hopped on the train to Manchester to meet a youth group based in Burnley. It was a small group, of five, that were part of a project they had set up and ran called Youth For Peace.

The guys were really inspiring, and spoke to us about all sorts of issues surrounding living in Burnely and being a Muslim.

They spoke about the conflicts between Pakistani and Bangladeshi youth in Burnley, and how the youth centre they run is helping to bridge the current divide between the two, with the aid of some snazzy technology and positive youth workers including the ones we met!!

When we started using the Tagmap cards to encourage conversation around certain topics the conversations held were fascinating, and the girls and boys spoke openly about the positive and the difficult things about being a Muslim.

These two girls were in sixth form, and it was really interesting to chat about all the teenage worries they have, and hear about how these two young girls are taking a positive active role in their community in Burnley.

This was a really interesting group and they seemed keen to carry on this project which is brilliant!!
