(Photograph) - The first Muslim Miss England returned to college on Wednesday to complete her A-levels after a year wearing the crown. Hammasa Kohistani, 19, criticised Tony Blair for stereotyping Muslims as she prepared to begin A2s in politics, media studies and sociology at Uxbridge College in west London. She said her studies had prepared her for tough questions. 'Other Miss Englands are asked what their favourite food is. I had to be very political.'
