|Message ||None of 7/7 bombers and British Muslim youths who are in Syria and Iraq are the product of Muslim schools. They are the product of British schooling which is the home of institutional racism with chicken racist native teachers. 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. It is not wrong to teach children that Jews are committing the same cruelty in Palestine what German did to them before or during Second World War. It is not wrong to teach children that anti-social behaviour, drinking, drugs, homosexuality, sex before marriage, teenage pregnancies and abortions are western values and Islam is against all such sins. This does not mean that Muslim schools teach children to hate westerners, Jews and homosexuals.
A reporter asked Muslim preacher German Salahuddin Baavugin the relationship between terrorism and Islam, he replied : ~ of which sparked the First World War ? Muslims ? ! ~ Of which sparked the Second World War ? Muslims ? ! ~ Of which has killed 20 million human soul of Australian Aborigines ? ! Muslims ? ! ~ Who sent bombs to hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki ? Muslims? ! ~ Of which has killed more than 100 million Indians of the American Indians in North America? Muslims ? ! ~ Of which has killed more than 50 million Indian of Indians in South America ? Muslims ? ! ~ Pastrakkak of which has about 180 million African slaves had died and about 88 % of them and been thrown in the Atlantic Ocean ? Muslims ? ! No, they were not Muslims ! ! ! ! Then He added: above all, you have to determine the meaning of terrorism well ; Had a non-Muslim has to do something wrong , then they will be just a crime , but while the Muslims of committing the same mistake it then described terrorism ! ! ! so first you do not double standards , and you will know who the real terrorists ! ! !
Only less than 10% of Muslim children go to Muslim schools and over 90% go to state schools to be mis-educated AND DE-EDUCATED BY STATE SCHOOLS WITH NON-Muslim TEACHERS. All those Muslim youths who are in Syria and Iraq, are the product of state schools where they could not develop their linguistic, cultural Identities. They find themselves cut off from their cultural heritage and are unable to enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry. It is an educational issue. It is nothing to do with integration or segregation.
So much noise here about Muslim extremism in few schools in a British city and yet your government spends Billions of dollars supporting and nurturing Islamic extremism in Syria and Saudi Arabia. And let not forget where did this all started, with Al Qaeda, which was created and nurtured and armed by the West. Now everyone is complaining where do all these extremism come from. If you are serious about fighting Muslim extremism start by going to the source, in allied countries like Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, and so on. But that would never happen because you also want your cheap oil. Hypocrites.
The way our Govt treating British Muslims is as if all Muslims are terrorists unless they prove otherwise. Govt should focus on its job. Govt of this school worked hard to help a failing school achieve outstanding rating from Ofsted. Please fix Ofsted and stop demonising Muslims. It is important to all of us that our schools can get on with their job, which is educating children. Schools in multi-cultural areas are doing a great job of respecting different cultures and preparing young people to live in a multi-cultural country. We totally reject the idea that there is Muslim plot to take over Birmingham schools. We abhor the scapegoating of the Muslim community being whipped up by the media. We call for the removal of Peter Clarke as we believe this is a provocative appointment, designed to divide our community. I think it is very important to actually see what a wonderful place Birmingham is. There are superb examples of where local communities (yes with high Muslim population) work together with each other for the good of the community. And where has this come from from respecting and embracing diversity in schools. Respecting each others religions and respecting different lifestyles. Look at balsall heath and even Cameron commented on the local community getting involved. So working together is good enough for Cameron so why is this witch hunt being conducted to demonise what this community has been ping for years which is respecting each other and working together. The Birmingham community is a multi-cultural community and we should all live in unity and with peace. Such a phobia/fear/accusation is only going to effect the education of the children and also the way a community live in particular areas. Every school needs to respect the religious beliefs of their students and Muslim teachers should not be the only ones targeted.
The shocking level of targeting of the Muslim community of Birmingham is indicative of the normalisation of the dehumanisation of the Muslims of Britain. Under the pretext of "extremism", criminal undemocratic and unethical abuse of public institutions and the Muslims of the UK can occur without much accountability. This pervasive attitude, especially amongst officials like Michael Gove needs to change. Our schools are truly trying to develop our children to do well at schools so later in life they are able to stand on their own two feet, but if we stop our schools from doing this than our country will have up rise of unemployment, benefit issues, crime levels high, I think its time for you apologize and allow practitioners to do their job right.
Speaking English does not promote integration into British, American and Australian societies, and broaden opportunities. English speaking Muslim youths are angry, frustrated and extremist, thanks to state schools with monolingual non-Muslim teachers and English language. English language is not only a lingua franca but also lingua frankensteinia. Human right are also covers linguistic right. Cultural and linguistic genocide are very common. British schooling is murdering community languages like Arabic, Urdu and others. English is today the world killer language. Linguistic genocide is a crime against humanity and British schooling is guilty of committing this crime. Language is not just a language. It defines one's culture, identity and consciousness. It defines how we think, communicate and express ourselves. The fact is the most South Asian Muslims have come to know Islam by way of Urdu, the children's alienation from the language that connects them the heritage of their parents and grandparents is disturbing. As a matter of fact, one has to get to know his mother tongue well if one is to master any other language.
Muslim children not only need halal meat or Eid Holidays but they need state funded Muslim schools with Muslim teachers as role models during their development period also. There are hundreds of state primary and secondary schools where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out to become Muslim Academies. This means the Muslim children will get a decent education. Muslim schools turned out balanced citizens, more tolerant of others and less likely to succumb to criminality or extremism. Muslim schools give young people confidence in who they are and an understanding of Islamic teaching of tolerance and respect which prepares them for a positive and fulfilling role in society. Muslim schools are attractive to Muslim parents because they have better discipline and teaching Islamic values. Children like discipline, structure and boundaries. Bilingual Muslim children need Bilingual Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental periods, who understand their needs and demands. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school. Legally, the state has an obligation to respect the rights of parents to ensure that 'education and teaching(of their children) is in conformity with their own religious and philosophical convictions.' The schools must satisfy the spiritual, moral, social, and cultural needs of Muslim pupils. State schools with non-Muslim monolingual teachers are not in a position to satisfy their needs. A good school is not just a knowledge factory or a conveyor belt for churning out exam passes - it is a community, a family. A community is held together by common values and principles.
