Foster mom in trouble over religious conversion

A foster mother in Britain is in hot water after a 16-year-old Muslim girl in her care decided to convert to Christianity.
A local council removed the woman from their register for failing to "respect and preserve" the teenager's faith, even though the girl made her own decision to change religion when she was 16.

[ ... ]

She claims that she did not pressurise the girl, who was put in care after being assaulted by a family member, to convert, and actually tried to discourage her initial interest in Christianity.
What would have been the council's reaction if a Christian in her care had decided to convert to Islam? Yeah, don't bother...I already know.
