Multikulti Madness as UK Kids Forced into Muslim Dress for Mosque Visit

U.K.: Catholic schoolchildren told to dress as Muslims — headscarves included — for mosque visit, or be marked as truants

From our You Can’t Make This Stuff Up Department, conveniently located down the hall from our You’ll Want to Read This Sitting Down Department. “Parents’ outrage as Catholic school children told ‘dress as a Muslim for mosque trip – or you will be branded a truant’,” from the Daily Mail, May 12 (thanks to JW):

Amy Owen (L), who was penalised for refusing to wear Muslim dress to a school mosque visit, pictured with her mother

Catching ‘em young – How the leftist doctrine of multiculturalism is being imposed on YOUR children – with menaces:

A Catholic schoolgirl has been branded a ‘truant’ by her teachers after she refused to dress as a Muslim for a school field trip to a mosque. Staff had ordered 14-year-old Amy Owen and her classmates to dress in headscarf, wear trousers or leggings and keep her arms covered for the compulsory visit to the mosque after it was arranged to promote ‘community cohesion.’

Parents at the 1,100 pupil Ellesmere Port Catholic High School in Ellesmere Port, Cheshire were also told they were each required to make a £3 contribution towards the trip for all Year Nine students. Michelle Davies’ daughter Amy Owen was ordered to wear a headscarf and trousers or leggings for a school trip to a mosque
But when Amy refused to dress in Muslim attire for the visit to Al Rahma Mosque in Toxteth, Liverpool, staff warned her about rules and said refusal would mean non attendance which would then be marked down as an ‘unauthorised absence.’  More from un-dhimmi

Respect Islam!

Wall Street Journal/David Kronfeld

Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s enlightening op-ed, “‘South Park’ and the Informal Fatwa,” (April 28) discusses how a tenet of Islam encourages Muslims to take it upon themselves, as individuals, to punish those who somehow commit “wrong.” This raises another basic issue surrounding Islam: That it is an honor-based culture that places enormous importance on the public display of respect. This leads to a host of actions that seem barbaric to others; not only may—or must—one kill another person who has “disrespected” Muhammad, but fathers and husbands may also slay their daughters and wives if they have somehow dishonored the family, perhaps for something as trivial as talking in public to an unrelated male or dressing immodestly. This honor-based culture similar fosters suicide bombers who indiscriminately murder innocent people to gain the glorified status of martyr and instant entry into paradise.

For those of us who see Islam from the outside, these brutal, merciless and death-extolling tenets engender not respect but horror and disgust. It is ironic that the fundamentalist followers of an ideology that seeks respect with such determination, manage to achieve precisely the opposite.

    Racist attack on islamic centre

    May 12 2010 by Bryan Brough, Paisley Daily Express

    [A FRIGHTENING attack by a gang of hooded thugs on an Islamic centre was last night being treated by police as racist.

    The group of neds in their late teens and early 20s who hurled eggs into the building while prayers were being held in the afternoon were yesterday branded despicable by one shocked worshipper.

    At first those gathered at the centre were astonished at what was happening and didn’t have a clue what had been thrown.

    All that was heard were shouts of abuse and the loud noise of a main door banging shut.

    The alarming incident happened on Friday, May 7, at the Dar-Ul-Quran Islamic Centre in Paisley Road, Renfrew.]

  3. I read this article in the Daily Mail – and I’ve read some of the readers’ comments – up to now a LOT , maybe the majority, seem to think there’s no problem sending the kids to the mosque to ‘learn respect ‘

    Here is a typical letter ………………..

    ” My yr 6 son recently visited a mosque. The boys were asked to wear hats, and the girls headscarves. None of the children nor their parents made any kind of fuss and bother, and ALL of the children had a great time.

    They all came home talking about the mosque – mentioning the fact that the boys and girls had to sit in different parts, and also the fact they were offered a snack and a drink.

    They learnt so much from this visit, and it was obviously much more interesting than sitting in a classroom reading from a book.

    He has also visited a local church where the Vicar is a regular visitor to his school.

    Again, all without fuss or bother, but with a willingness to learn and enjoy anything and everything that life has to offer! ”

    ‘They all came home talking about the mosque ‘ –
    maybe they’ll decide to convert later !
    Like lambs to the slaughter .

  4. its two way street , i have no problem for my kids to visit the mosque if only if they let their kids visit my church . please UK parents stand up for your dignity, i would…..

  5. Nice avatar, ImNoDhimmi

    So far as I can tell, the ellesmere port catholic high school hasn’t backed down and claimed there has been a “misunderstanding”, or “that it could have been communicated better”.
