Provocation Alert: British Schoolboys Given Detention For Refusing To Bow And Pray To Allah [Update teacher suspended]

July 5, 2008

bowing-down_2.jpgIf this outrage happened to a child of mine, I would be absolutely livid! Honestly I would be so pissed I would not be able to see straight. Utter lunacy!

Push aside for a minute the punishment handed out. Why they were expected to bow and pray to allah in the first place?! No non-Muslim child (or anyone for that matter) should be expected to undergo forced indoctrination!
Schoolboys punished with detention for refusing to kneel down and pray to Allah

Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing to kneel down and ‘pray to Allah’ during a religious education lesson.

Parents were outraged that the two boys from year seven (11 to 12-year-olds) were punished for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped.

They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise at Alsager High School, near Stoke-on-Trent – which included wearing Muslim headgear – was a breach of their human rights.

One parent, Sharon Luinen, said: “This isn’t right, it’s taking things too far.

“I understand that they have to learn about other religions. I can live with that but it is taking it a step too far to be punished because they wouldn’t join in Muslim prayer.

“Making them pray to Allah, who isn’t who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that they were told they were being disrespectful.

“I don’t want this to look as if I have a problem with the school because I am generally very happy with it.”

Another parent Karen Williams said: “I am absolutely furious my daughter was made to take part in it and I don’t find it acceptable.

“I haven’t got a problem with them teaching my child other religions and a small amount of information doesn’t do any harm.

“But not only did they have to pray, the teacher had gone into the class and made them watch a short film and then said ‘we are now going out to pray to Allah’.

“Then two boys got detention and all the other children missed their refreshment break because of the teacher.

“Not only was it forced upon them, my daughter was told off for not doing it right.

“They’d never done it before and they were supposed to do it in another language.”

“My child has been forced to pray to Allah in a school lesson.” The grandfather of one of the pupils in the class said: “It’s absolutely disgusting, there’s no other way of putting it.[…]

“But if Muslims were asked to go to church on Sunday and take Holy Communion there would be war.”

If that is not the understatement of the century!!!!

As I reported in April of 2007.

Teachers drop the Holocaust to avoid offending Muslims

Schools are dropping the Holocaust from history lessons to avoid offending Muslim pupils, a Government backed study has revealed.

It found some teachers are reluctant to cover the atrocity for fear of upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.

There is also resistance to tackling the 11th century Crusades – where Christians fought Muslim armies for control of Jerusalem – because lessons often contradict what is taught in local mosques.

Do the math. Put two and two together. It is not rocket science.
Islam gets it’s cake and eats it too. The wheels are in motion.
The west will be gobbled up by creeping Islamisation if it does not grow a spine.

C.A.I.R. has their Incitement Alert, so I shall have my own version. Provocation Alerts.

Update:
Doctor Bulldog has the news.

    “Well they don’t call it Londonstan for nothing you know”

    No they don’t. They don’t call it Londonstan at all actually. It’s Londonistan, lolol.

    But the general public are slowly waking up. And when they finally do the world will hear such a roar…

    The Muslims are playing with fire. They are creating the conditions where a genocidal anti-Muslim movement will rise in the West and they will be massacred.
    That’s what’s coming. They will do it to themselves.

    Just think, if England had fallen this far back in the colonial days, the Declaration would have been enough to get Independence without a war (sad really)

    Hello, i have been a happy student of Alsager School for 5 years and have experienced R.E. lessons with this teacher in question. I will say right now, to all these senseless distorted media accusations that these are all WRONG! The teacher is a friendly caring and, most importantly, passionate person, who enjoys engaging students in pratical ways, rather than forcing them to write theories etc. She encourages them to decided for themselves, infact i can recall a lesson, when we covered Athiesm. So it’s important to remember that, all religions are taken seriously and are explaining as detailed as possible with such a tight curriculum on offer. The teacher is so passionate about her subject, that her classroom is beeming with statues and figures boasting a sheer and epic diversity of religions, from Chrisitianity to Hinduism. Her lessons above all were interesting.
    There is no doubt in my mind that these two students, who were forced to have a brief detention, would have been messing around and thus distracting the other interested students from focusing on the course of the ceremony. I have encountered many disruptions when we’ve done other things fronm students trying to make humour from such an important social issue of today’s world: religious beliefs. I am sure that these students fully deserved this detention because as far as i can remember many students in my classes, escaped detention, who mocked several ceremonies, which the passionate teacher has evidently taken time to prepare.
    I really do not like seeing on a variety of news websites and forums, people arguing that this teacher should be sacked because, in sharp contrast to other teachers, this individual just reflects enthusiasm for her subject, which is obviosuly so close to her. Other teachers would rather spend no time preparing (i can name almost too many examples) the lessons and just opening a textbook and lecturing, but this teacher would try to engage the students and thus, in my opinion, made a happier and more interesting lesson!

    1. Are there any Muslim students involved in her RE studies?
    2. If so, are they expected to pray as Christians do?

    There is no need to act out the Muslim prayer ritual in order to understand Islam. None.
    Does the “friendly caring and, most importantly, passionate person, who enjoys engaging students in practical ways” Allison Phillips separate the girls from the boys during the forced Islamic prayer ritual as is the norm in Mosques???
    Does she teach the true Islam or is her lesson plans made up of a white washed PC correct version??
    Does she enlighten her class about the way women are treated as second class citizens in Islam? What of the way people of other religious faiths are treated under Islam?

    If not she and the school system may as well not bother. If all they teach is Islamic (Da’wa) propaganda.

    Islam 101
