NON-MUSLIMS BANNED FROM LONDON POOL
From Telegraph.cop.uk: "David Toube and Harry, five, were turned away by staff from the men-only session.
Mr Toube, 39, a lawyer, said they visited the baths at 9am on Sunday.
"I arrived at the pool to discover that they were holding what staff described to me as 'Muslim men-only swimming’," he said.
"I asked whether my son and I could go as we were both male. I was told that the session was for Muslims only and that we could not be admitted."
Mr Toube then spoke to the duty manager, who confirmed he could not enter.
"I asked what would happen if I turned up and insisted I was Muslim.
"The manager suggested that they might ask the Muslims swimming if they minded my son and I swimming with them. If they didn’t object, we might be allowed in."
"Mr Toube claimed he was told by a member of staff on a subsequent visit that it was a "requirement of the Muslim religion that Muslims could not swim with non-Muslims"."
"Two websites have been advertising them as being for Muslim men only. But Dr Taj Hargey, chair of the Muslim Education Centre of Oxford, said there was no requirement in the Koran for Muslims to avoid swimming with non-Muslims.
