A DAD has slammed a school’s decision to send his son home for having a moustache – because it doesn’t fit in with a strict uniform policy.
Akaash Iqbal, 14, was banished from Manchester Academy – and says teachers told him to shave or not be allowed back.
His dad, Asif Mahmood, claims he was called by the school and told to be on standby with a razor.
But Mr Mahmood, 42, refused and has branded the saga ridiculous as Akaash is stranded at home ahead of an important exam.
Mr Mahmood, from Fallowfield, said: “It’s a nonsense. He’s not shaving – he’s only 14 and if he starts now he’ll have to do it for the rest of his life.
