Message The trouble with so much of the hysteria surrounding Muslim-schools is that
they are so busy "othering" that they never bother to understand why parents
would send their kids there in the first place. Is religion really the key
selling point? Perhaps for some parents, but like the rest of the UK
population who send their children to faith-based schools, the answer would
have to be no. Academic results matter. This is the key selling point, and
with Muslims generally lagging behind with the rest of the population on
education attainment levels, why on earth would they not want the best for
their children? The example cited to make a case for why state school should
not be funded by us is Al-Madinah school – described as dysfunctional by
Ofsted and rightly so in my opinion and I would find it difficult to imagine
many parents wanting to send their kids there now but how representative is
that of faith-based schools and in particular Muslim schools in the UK? Why
not cite e.g. Taheedul Islam Girls High School in Blackburn topping the
British national league table, beating 3,000 other state-funded schools?
These are extraordinary results for a relevantly new school beating
established schools such as King Edward VI Handsworth School in Birmingham
and Sutton Grammar School that consistently produce excellent academic
results. Girls from this Muslim-school will no doubt go on to be tomorrow's
doctors, lawyers, bankers and other professions, empowering the next
generation of Muslim women. Yes, integration is a challenge but it’s a
complete nonsense to reduce this to religion while ignoring key drivers such
as education and employment. Still don't like it? Hold the government to
account for failing inner city schools and get them to produce better ones
instead of failing a generation of kids: I'm all for competition.

During colonial days, British did not follow local customs or culture. They
didn't exactly "go native". They even forced the native Americans and native
Australian to adopt all the evils of their culture and customs. They are
still the underdogs of American and Australian societies. At least
Australian Prime Minister apologised to the natives for their evil deeds.
Brits living in Spain and France don't even bother learning the language of
the new adopted country. Frankly suggesting that people don't want to become
"British" they should move elsewhere is extremely irritating. Immigrants are
in UK because they are needed, it was never an act of charity. Without
migration, British economy and society will bleed to death. British culture
and customs will undoubtedly change as it has for millennium due to
immigration. I am not quite sure why Brits would be worried about that.

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.

Western media and politicians have been trying their best to propagate
against Muslim schools. Muslim schools are even called Osama bin Laden
Academies by a Teaching Union. Only less than 5% of Muslim children attend
Muslim schools while more than 95% are in state schools to be mis-educated
and de-educated by non-Muslim monolingual teachers. The demand for state
funded Muslim schools is in accordance with the law of the land. Muslim
community is not asking for any favour. Muslim community pays all sorts of
taxes and is less burden on social services. Church leaders say it is no
longer "appropriate" for them to run Sacred Heart RC Primary School which
has just six Christian pupils. The school in Blackburn, Lancs, could be
handed to the nearby Masjid-e-Tauheedul mosque.

The Muslim community has been passing through a phase of fourth Crusades.
The battleground is the field of education, where the young generation will
be educated properly with the Holly Quran in one hand and Sciences in other
hand to serve the British society and the world at large. A true Muslim is a
citizen of the world, which has become a small global village. We are going
to prepare our youth to achieve that objective in the long run. A true
Muslim believes in Prophet Moses and the Prophet Jesus and without them one
cannot be a Muslim. My suggestion is that in all state, independent and
Christian based school special attention should be given to the teaching of
Comparative Religion and Islam should be taught by qualified Muslim Teachers
to make the children aware the closeness of Islam to Christianity and
Judaism which will help them to think about Islam, as “A Pragmatic and
Modern Way of Life,” during their life time.

The demand for Muslim schools comes from parents who want their children a
safe environment with an Islamic ethos. Parents see Muslim schools where
children can develop their Islamic Identity where they won't feel
stigmatised for being Muslims and they can feel confident about their faith.
Muslim schools are working to try to create a bridge between communities.
There is a belief among ethnic minority parents that the British schooling
does not adequately address their cultural needs. Failing to meet this need
could result in feeling resentment among a group who already feel excluded.
Setting up Muslim school is a defensive response. State schools with
monolingual teachers are not capable to teach English to bilingual Muslim
children. Bilingual teachers are needed to teach English to such children
along with their mother tongue. According to a number of studies, a child
will not learn a second language if his first language is ignored.

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.

Extremism, homophobia and anti-Semitism are nothing to do with Islamic
teachings and beliefs. Islam does not teach that Jews and Christians are
pigs and monkeys. The Policy Exchange Think-tank should concentrate on
institutionally racist British schooling with chicken racist teachers.
Muslim parents do not want their children with behaviour problems that
include unprovoked aggression, promiscuity, violence, eating disorder,
bullying and alcohol. According to ATL, teachers believe behaviour is worse
than it was five years ago, with even five year olds being disrespectful,
intimidating and violent. This is the true picture of British broken society
and the Muslim community does not want to be integrated. The British
government is again asking us, Muslims, to adopt the" British values" and to
integrate fully into the British way of life. But many so called "British
values" are not acceptable to us. The Muslims don't want to integrate or
abide by western law. Just because they don´t want to wear nude clothes or
at least cloth that can show how big her breast are... so these people
failed to integrate. Just because they don't like free sex, then these
people failed again. What a dirty Bush mind you have!

British schooling and the British society is the home of institutional
racism. The result is that Muslim children are unable to develop
self-confidence and self-esteem, therefore, majority of them leaves schools
with low grades. Racism is deeply rooted in British society. British schools
are not doing enough to tackle racism and promote race relations. Many
teachers are unaware of racist attitudes amongst pupils. Schools have a
responsibility not only to deal with racist incidents but also to prepare
pupils for life in a multicultural and multiracial society. At least one
racist incident is reported daily in Bolton schools, according to stats
obtained from Bolton Council by Mancunian Matters. Bolton Council of Mosques
Manager, Ibrahim Kala, said the data is only the “tip of the iceberg” and
that Islamophobia makes up a large portion of the reported incidents. Stats
obtained through the Freedom of Information request show 2,397 cases of
racism in Bolton schools in the years from 2004 to 2013, meaning on average
there are 1.26 racist incidents occur daily – and these are only the ones
being reported.

British society must learn to respect and tolerate those who are different.
God has created diverse human beings to live in this tiny global village of
one family. Creation by its very nature is diverse with different species,
different communities, different cultures and languages. These differences
represent the beauty and wonder but diversity is sometimes not fully
appreciated, resulting in all sorts of clashes. The British society and
Establishment must learn to respect and accommodate others, as if in a
family. A report by the Institute for Community Cohesion found that native
parents were deserting some schools after finding their children outnumbered
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. A study by Bristol University reveals that a high
level of racial segregation in Oldham schools and tension between
communities resulted in recent riots in 2001. The solution is that those
schools where Muslim children are majority may be designated as Muslim
community schools. The native parents do not want their children to be
educated along with migrant children. As soon as they find that the number
of other children is on the increase, they remove their children to those
schools where native children are in majority.
