Shortly before the plane took off, her mother, Sowbhagyawatee Bageerathi, told Channel 4 News: “Where she is going, she is worried about the life and the education. She has worked so hard here and now they want to ruin her life. I am very sad for my daughter. I am very worried. I want everybody to go together and not to send her alone.”What’s stopping you accompanying her, if she’s in so much ‘danger’? Or do you value a British passport more than your own daughter?
As for the school…words fail me:
Her school, Oasis Academy Hadley, in Enfield, said on its Twitter account: “Who wants to bet the Government would do anything in their power to help a white British citizen to escape abuse? Unfair. #FightForYashika.”How does this square with their flowery and nebulous burblings about their ‘Vision & Values’ on their website?
We accept others for who they are and respect differences.Funny way of respecting a difference of opinion between yourselves and the rules of the land, isn’t it?
