UK Prime Minister David Cameron announced a special programme worth £20 million of funding, to teach the English language to Muslim women immigrants in the country in January.

His suggestion for Muslim women learn English as a measure to "tackle extremism" was not well-received, and his blaming "traditional submissiveness of Muslim women" as a factor of Islamic radicalisation was criticised as well.

Cameron also suggested that the women could be deported if they didn't speak English fluently enough.

Two days ago, Channel 4 News posted a video interviewing a group of Muslim women living in Cheetham Hill, Manchester, regarding Cameron's stance.

This group, mostly comprising Pakistani women, holds meetings at a community centre, and the discourse is held in Urdu.
