English Schoolboys punished with detention for refusing to kneel in class and pray to Allah
Christian 11 and 12 year old children were being forced to pray to Allah! detention for those who refused!
As one parent put it: "Making them pray to Allah, who isn't who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that they were told they were being disrespectful."
School authorities only offered weak excuses and said the teacher in question was not available.
Two schoolboys were given detention after refusing to kneel down and 'pray to Allah' during a religious education lesson.
Parents were outraged that the two boys from year seven (11 to 12-year-olds) were punished for not wanting to take part in the practical demonstration of how Allah is worshipped.
They said forcing their children to take part in the exercise at Alsager High School, near Stoke-on-Trent - which included wearing Muslim headgear - was a breach of their human rights.
"But if Muslims were asked to go to church on Sunday and take Holy Communion there would be war."
Parents said that their children were made to bend down on their knees on prayer mats which the RE teacher had got out of her cupboard and they were also told to wear Islamic headgear during the lesson on Tuesday afternoon.
This is over-the-top!
