Government Say Muslim Schools Promote Extremism, Tell Us Something We Havent Already Known For Years

The government have finally realised what patriots and anti-islamists  have been saying for years. That Muslim only schools and  madrassahs are breeding grounds for Muslim extremists due to the racist Islamo-fascist views being taught by those who are meant to be educating the children in the British national curriculum. In effect that government are now saying exactly the same things that anti-islam campaigners and groups like the EDL have been saying for years and were branded as racists, Nazis and fascists for doing so. Suppose an apology is out of the question, one consolation is maybe something will get done about this long standing problem now. Where they will find several Urdu and Arabic Islamic apostates to go undercover and expose what’s happening i have no idea. That is the only way we will ever know the truth. A Muslim worker would never drop his fellow cult members in it, a non Muslim would be hard to even get access and any ofsted people who go doing their checks would simply be fobbed off with a change of subject topic.

The reports findings  linked the Muslim schools with various terrorist and racist Islamic groups both in the UK and abroad. Regular Kafir Crusaders visitors will most likely be aware that we have a regular Muslim commentator by the name of  Iftikhar Ahmad from the London School Of Islamics. In total contrast to the government report, he believes that state run Muslim schools are the answer to everything. Infact he has even contributed many Muslim sex offenders and paedophiles heinous behaviour and perverted acts down to the fact that they was taught in non Muslim only schools which use English language . No doubt he will have something to cut and paste on this subject

Extremism unchecked in schools, secret briefing reveals

More than 100 independent faith schools may be radicalising students, the Department of Education has warned in a secret memo which admits that officials are struggling to tackle extremism in state and private lschools.

Michael Gove, the education secretary, was one of the key voices calling for a ban on support for non-violent extremism when it published its Prevent strategy to fight radicalisation last year.

But behind closed doors there are concerns about 118 “socially conservative” independent faith schools – the vast majority of them Muslim – where pupils may be encouraged to cut themselves off from mainstream society.

Ministers have been told they do not have “detailed information” about the religious orientation of the groups and movements behind all independent faith schools.

And officials have privately admitted that they also have no system in place to identify institutional extremism in state schools, the Daily Telegraph has learned.

They say there is also “a gap between what we think we know and what we can prove” because they cannot use undercover methods open to journalists.

From January, the Independent School Standards will require a respect for “fundamental British values” including democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

Ofsted has not yet trained its inspectors in how to enforce such standards but it is introducing a “specialist cadre” of inspectors to look at faith schools as part of a planned “prioritised inspection programme.”

However, the education department has admitted in briefings that it can only look at the “ethos” of independent schools, rather than how they are actually run.

And the department says it has failed to measure the mindset in state schools because it cannot work out how to “detect” extremism or a “baseline” to start from.

In the state sector, officials are only able to look at data where pupils are referred to a project called Channel, designed to help them move away from extremism.

But there are concerns that the measure is unreliable as some schools with problems may not have made any referrals.

Two teaching assistants in state schools have been involved in terrorism – Mohammed Sidique Khan, the leader of the July 7 bombers in Leeds, and Zahoor Iqbal, who helped a man planning to kidnap and execute a British soldier in Birmingham.

Religious schools are the fastest growing sector of independent schools with 80 new registrations a year.

Among “schools of interest” are three run by the Islamic Shaksiyah Foundation in Haringey, North London and Slough, Berks. Reports have claimed the foundation is run by senior members and activists of Hizb ut-Tahrir, an extremist political group that campaigns for an Islamic state.

The school said they had been reassured by the Department for Education that they have “no concerns about extremism in our schools” and said there was “no involvement of Hizb-ut-Tahrir activists on the board of the foundation.”

Another school, the Alif Academy in Forest Gate, East London, is also on the list. The local council has raised concerns about links with Hizb ut-Tahrir.

Hasib Hikmat, the head teacher, said he was “shocked” by the allegations because the Department of Education had registered his school in 2011 and dealt with it “professionally and responsibly.”

Another causing concern is the Darul Uloom school in Birmingham, associated with the missionary group Tablighi Jamaat, where an undercover documentary recorded children being taught a hardline version of Islam that criticised Hindus and Jews.

The document also mentions a proposal to set up a school attached to the Central Mosque in Rochdale, called Darul Ilm, which is also associated with Tablighi Jamaat.

Neither responded to requests for comment.

The briefing document also highlights an application to set up a private school at the Green Lanes Mosque in Birmingham, which has links to fundamentalist “salafi” Muslims in Pakistan, and where another undercover documentary filmed preachers speaking out against homosexuals and non-Muslims.

The mosque said the school would be run by a separate board of trustees who “have not engaged, or promoted any sort of extremist related activity or otherwise” and who were addressing issues raised by the DfE.

To add to the problems the education department faces, included in the list of “socially conservative” schools also those run by Orthodox Jews and the fundamentalist Christian sect the Plymouth Brethren.

A Department for Education spokesman said Ofsted inspectors would not go out specifically to look for extremism but added: “Ofsted is working to ensure all inspectors have the necessary knowledge and expertise to determine whether extremist beliefs are being promoted in a school and then to take appropriate action.”

The government’s counter-radicalisation strategy, called “Prevent” warned last year that some people who are supportive of terrorist groups and ideologies had “sought and sometimes gained positions in schools or in groups which work closely with young people.”

The report warned that at least three separate al-Qaeda-related operations had involved people who became involved in extremism while they were at school, including July 7 and the trans-Atlantic airlines plot.

Eleven of the convictions for terrorism-related offences associated with al-Qaeda had been committed by people aged between 15 and 19, it added.

The youngest person convicted of terrorism-related offences was Hammaad Munshi, who was 15 when he was arrested carrying two small bags of ball bearings, a key component of a suicide vest, on his way home from his GCSEs at Westborough High School in Dewsbury.

The strategy also reported that a minority of independent faith schools had been “actively promoting views that are contrary to British values, such as intolerance of other cultures and gender inequality” and had “allowed extremist views to be expressed by staff, visitors or pupils.”

The document said there had been concerns that madrassahs – after-school religious classes attached to mosques – were promoting a highly conservative version of Islam and spreading extremist views, particularly against non-Muslims. It estimated that 100,000 Muslim children attended such schools.

  1. Muslim migrants are living in a society which is institutionally racist. Brits must learn to respect and tolerate those who are different.Children should be taught about living religions so that they could learn to respect and tolerate those who are in their schools or who live near their own homes.

    Multiculturalism is not about integration but about cultural plurality. It is not about separation but about respect and the deepening awareness of Unity in Diversity. Each culture will maintain its own intrinsic value and at the same time would be expected to contribute to the benefit of the whole society. Multiculturalism can accommodate diversity of all kinds – cultural, philosophical and religious – so that we can create a world without conflict and strife. Britain can assume the role of accommodation and concern for all peoples, for our planet and indeed for our survival. Multi-culturalism is even more important and crucial after 9/11 and 7/7. Muslim youths are also likely to feel alienated by a focus on shared Brutishness, rather than multicultural diversity. Rather than promoting a single British “us” teaching should acknowledge that “us” can be diverse and plural. Children should be encouraged to explore differences in appearance, history and religion to reduce social and educational fears. The pressures of multi-culturalism, racism, bullying and Islamophobia have forced the Muslim community to set up their own schools.There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim pupils are in majority. In my opinion all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models. Such schools will be able to satisfy the needs and demands of the Muslim children and their parents.

    A civilisation is measured not by the rights it grants its majority but the privileges it allows its minorities.
    Muslim community not only needs Mosques but also state funded Muslim schools for their bilingual children. They need to learn and be well versed in standard English to follow the national Curriculum and go for higher studies and research to serve humanity. They also need to learn and be well versed in Arabic, Urdu and other community languages to keep in touch with their cultural heritage and enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry. A Muslim is a citizen of this tiny global village. He/she does not want to become notoriously monolingual Brit.
    Muslim schooling is on the rise in the West. Anti-Muslim attitudes in state schools contribute to its growth. there are 240 to 250 private Islamic schools in the U.S and 188 Muslim schools in the United Kingdom and out of that 12 are state funded. The increasing enrolment in these schools reflects the religion’s growing number of Muslims and the desire of parents to shelter young Muslims from discrimination and discomfort they might encounter at state schools. But Islamic schools, like mosques and other Islamic institutions, can be viewed with distrust and even hostility. Jewish Schools in Israel teach Children about Evolution. They has a curious way of teaching it. They said the Jews were made by god and the Palestinians evolved from apes. On the other hand, Muslim schools teach children that human beings are from Adam and Eve(peace be upon them).

    It’s very important … for Muslim kids to be able to go to a school that affirms who they are and allows the creative space to be comfortable being Muslim. In an Islamic school they have a feeling of pride … minus some of the other things they might encounter. The Islamic School League of America (ISLA), a non-profit that connects Muslim educators and institutions, estimates that 40,000 students are enrolled in Islamic schools in the United States, a 25 percent increase from 2006. Those numbers are expected to keep growing as new schools open and existing schools expand.
    There are plenty of challenges to start-up schools, not least of which is persuading potential students and their parents that the school is academically up to snuff. If you’re dealing with immigrants, you’re dealing with post-colonial attitudes, in many of their countries of origin, The way to move upward was through Western schools. … (In the past) they saw Islamic schools as not where they should put their students if they want their kids to end up in Harvard or in Oxford.

    Bilingual Muslims children have a right, as much as any other faith group, to be taught their culture, languages and faith alongside a mainstream curriculum. More faith schools will be opened under sweeping reforms of the education system in England. There is a dire need for the growth of state funded Muslim schools to meet the growing needs and demands of the Muslim parents and children. Now the time has come that parents and community should take over the running of their local schools.

    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 humanity. 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. Those state schools where Muslim children are in majority may be opted out as Muslim Academies.
    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 mean 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 Islam’s 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.
