Message RESIDENTS across Harrow have vented their anger about proposals to have halal-only menus in primary schools in the borough following the revelation in the Observer last month. Meat is meat. What does it matter how its killed. These stupid parents should find other things to whine about. Halaal meat is more hygienically processed anyway.

The newspaper revealed exclusively how Harrow Council has employed a catering company to only prepare Halal meat to serve youngsters in Harrow. This is nothing new to my knowledge, Tower Hamlets council been doing Halal meat in schools for at least 3 years or more.

The Halal slaughter method (along with Shechita which is the name for pretty much the same method used by Jews) is not cruel at all. When the animal's throat is slit, it results in a massive drop in blood pressure causing pretty much instantaneous unconsciousness. As long as the cut is performed correctly the animal will feel a mere instant of pain compared to the intense suffering they can go through in abattoir's with the "normal" slaughter method. The link that has been made between this story and Britain becoming an Islamic State is a bit extreme. The majority of British people are atheist. But it doesn't mean we can't try and make life easier and better for people of all faiths and cultures.

I am a Muslim and always chose to purchase Halal or Kosher meat for our family, simply because I know exactly where it was produced, and that it has NOT been contaminated by being part of the appalling poor ( and dangerous) UK food handling system. I assume those who are concerned about how the chicken feels when it is slaughtered are simply NOT eating meat.....since the way commercial slaughter of chickens occurs is much worse than anything done during Halal or Kosher butchering.. Commercial meat handling is the greatest source of food contamination in the country....so if you want to expose your children to contaminated food, go ahead. These families would be better off to simply state that they are Vegetarians.....and have their children eat the perfectly acceptable Vegetarian meals available for those who dont eat meat.

All children should be offered a choice. That way Muslims can eat what they want and non-Muslims can eat what they want.

Bilingual Muslim children need state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school.The number of Muslim schools is on the increase. The new Academies Bill will help Muslim community to set up state funded Muslim schools for each and every Muslim child. Muslim schools are not only faith schools but alos bilingual schools. They need bilingual Muslim teachers as role models. Muslim schools should be given the right to recruit bilingual teachers from Muslim countries. Majority of Muslim children are from the sub-continent, therefore, majority of bilingual teachers should be recruited from there.

There are couple of state schools in Harrow where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies so that non-Muslim children could enjoy their own meals in their own schools.

There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies. This is the solution to all the issues and problems faced by Muslim community and the host community. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school.

Multicultural Britain has a relatively large broad trilingual population whose skills are under recognised and understood.Those skills should be used as a bonus, but British schooling has been trying its best to discourage them not to learn and speak their mother tongues. According to an anthropological linguist, when a language dies, its heritage and identity will die with it. There is a positive co-relation between language and culture. Language and culture are interconnected.

A report by the Institute for Community Cohesion found that native parents were deserting some schools after finding their children out numbered by pupils from ethnic minorities. Schools in parts of England are becoming increasingly segregated. The study focused on 13 local authorities. Many of the schools and colleges are segregated and this was generally worsening over recent years. This is RACISM because British society is the home of institutional racism. My statement regarding Muslim schools where there is no place for non-Muslim child or a teacher is based on educational process and not on racism. Muslim children need Muslim teachers during their developmental periods. For higher studies and research, Muslim teacher is not a priority.
