The Brussels school Institut des Ursulines will ban the headscarf starting next year, according to Le Soir.Â The principal of the school says that his school is one of the few in Brussels that still allows the headscarf and therefore attracted more and more students.
Several petitions have already been started against the management decision, which was made without consultation with the students, teachers and educational staff.
According to the principal of the school, whose students body is 85% students of North African origin, the school attracted more and more students because they allowed the headscarf.Â Many students have already announced they will leave the school as a result of the decision.

Farid El Machaoud, spokesperson for the Belgian Muslim League, says that mosques in Belgium don’t have enough space for all the believers who come for Friday prayers.Â In the major cities particularly there’s a space shortage.Â “The Muslim population continues to grow and more and more youth go to the mosque,” says El Machaoud.Â He added that the space shortage is especially felt in Hasselt, Antwerp, Ghent, Brussels, Liege, Charleroi and Doornik.
The imam’s popularity also plays a role.Â El Machaoud says that some imams attract large crowds to their sermons.Â Some mosques can’t handle the influx, while others stand empty.
“Islamization not fast enough, subsidy not enough etc. etc:
There are 300 mosques in Belgium, though not all are recognized.Â There are 5 recognized mosques in Brussels and 6 in Flanders, compared with 43 in Wallonia.Â The recognized mosques have been recieving a government subsidy since recently.Â According to Farid El Machaoud the subsidy is not enough, and the procedure to be recognized takes too long.
