BBC - Panorama: British Schools, Islamic Rules

95% of all Muslim children in the UK attend non-faith state schools, however small but rapidly growing number are now being educated in new state Muslim schools. Due to the gaps in school inspection system, the schools easily turn into a center of fundamentalism. John Ware investigates this case and exposes the disturbing evidence such as Saudi text books for children that show how thieves' hands and feet are choped off. (The Quran says "As for the thief, both male and female, cut off their hands." 5:38)

Got that one on Ukn. I gotta say I was shocked by the Uk's system. I find it appalling that little girls wear the veil at such a young age. I mean even MY mom didn't wear it when she was young. She chose to wear it later and stopped doing it recently... But this is sending a very bad message this is saying from the very beginning "you may attend the same school but you're different". As I explained on UKN. France is criticized for its ban of the veil in primary, middle and high schools but I'm glad we've got it. Also, I attended a catholic school but religious teaching was not compulsory, in fact, apart from the fact that a religious course was available for those who wanted to attend it, it was every bit a secular school which enabled me to meet people of different beliefs than mine.

Seeing how young girls are to wear a Darth Vader suit as part of their uniform and the content of some manual, no wonder some of them are brainwashed and no wonder Islamophobia is growing. I don't want my Muslim family to be ostracized from the rest of society by the rise of such extremism... Unfortunately, what is happening in Great Britain is then used by the extreme right all across Europe to enforce xenophobic legislation. And this is truly frightening. Tolerance is all right on paper but there's some line that should never be crossed, and I feel the UK is treading it.

John Ware is nothing more than an Islamophobe and an Islam basher. To single out Islam as the only religion where such so-called teachings are given proves Ware's own prejudice, bigotry and hatred.
The documentary contained many close-up images of hijab-clad girls set to sinister music, as well as slow-motion shots of so-called radical preachers and Muslim men praying in mosques. The message was that Muslim communities are isolating themselves from mainstream society. It gave the impression that Muslim parents who send their children to faith schools are exercising ‘voluntary apartheid’, as one Oldham primary school teacher of South African origin put it.

West is still racist, xenophobic and Islamophobic. It is unable to forget and forgive the seige of Vienna in 1683.

It is absurd to believe that Muslim schools, Imams and Masajid teach Muslim children anti-Semitic, homophobic and anti-western views. It is dangerously deceptive and misleading to address text books and discuss them out of their historical, cultural and linguistic context. Muslims were already disproportionately being targeted by police with programmes such as the Prevent project. Focusing on Muslim schools for investigation would tell Muslim young people "you are different" and further alienate them. Singling out Muslim schools threatened to add to already "dangerous" levels of Islamophobia, which he compared to the amount of anti-semitism in the 1920s and 1930s.

As an Ex-Muslim, I would say to Iftikhar Ahmad:

Don't tell me Muslims don't believe Jewish people should be KILLED!

Don't say it is not the case or else I will bash you right here with YOUR OWN RELIGION's documents and rules.

Which religion openly advertises that "UNTIL JEWS ARE NOT KILLED, THE LAST DAY WON'T COME!?!"

Say the truth about your disgusting religion.

At S.

As a former Muslim myself, I can only agree with you. I saw this man's comment a while ago but didn't bother answering. What I found appalling in this whole story is how all Muslims are lied to. They believe their religion is a religion of peace because they only listen to these f*** liars.

As far as I'm concerned we should get rid of all these religions and the world would be far better.

AND! Muslims SHOULD BE FORCED to read the Qu'ran in their mother tongue BEFORE attending mosques. That would empty them a great deal and it would be help people like me who are struggling to wake up their family.
