Mahaffey (13), you must select to swimming lessons

A German muslimah has not been granted to religious considerations not to mixed swimming lessons to take part.

That has a German court Wednesday. The 13-year-old girl from Frankfurt had argued that seeing boys in swimming trunks would violate her religious zedigheid. They also suggested that if they would accept the offer of the school to wear a ' burkini '-a swimsuit that covered the entire body-they would expose themselves to bullying by fellow students.

The Court decided Wednesday, however, that the burkini is an acceptable compromise between the religion of the girl and the task of the Government to educate its citizens. According to the German press agency dpa had the girl's father said in advance that he would accept the ruling.
