Brisbane Islamic College Bans Australian National Anthem

Abuse of the flag does not an Aussie make!

A BRISBANE Islamic school has banned the national anthem at assemblies and sacked the teacher who asked for it to be played, The Courier-Mail can reveal.

Australian International Islamic College teacher Pravin Chand was sacked in November, four months after his proposal for students to sing Advance Australia Fair was ruled to be against the “Islamic view and ethos”.

A memo sent to teachers at the Durack school in July and obtained by The Courier-Mail, also said “the singing of the anthem will be put on hold”.

The revelations follow an outcry on the Gold Coast this week at a plan by the same college to open another campus at Carrara. A vocal crowd draped in Australian flags accused the college of promoting segregation, anti-Australian values and even terrorism.

Muslim leaders slammed the protests as “un-Australian” and claimed religion should not be used as a reason to protest against a school.

School chairman Imam Abdul Quddoos Azhari yesterday denied the anthem ban and said students sang it “at every function”.

But Mr Chand, whose version of events was backed by a second teacher, said he had not heard the anthem once this year.

“No national anthem to me means no integration with Australian kids,” Mr Chand said. “Western values (at the school) are a no-no.

“It’s like a paramilitary camp that place.”

Mr Chand’s employment was terminated by the college board last month on the grounds he was “not fitting into the school’s ethos”.

Outgoing principal Azroul Liza Khalid, who started at the school in July, said she had not heard the anthem once at assembly, although it was played two or three other times.

Ms Khalid said she was told by a board member not to play the anthem or any songs on Friday because it was a holy day. In July, school assembly day was moved from Monday to Friday.

A spokeswoman for Education Minister Rod Welford indicated it was unlikely a public school had banned the national anthem.

“It’s not compulsory for schools to play the national anthem,” she said. “There’s an expectation it would be played on formal occasions when the Australian flag is being raised.”

A Catholic education spokesman said: “I’m absolutely confident that no Catholic school has ever banned the playing of the national anthem and never will.”

School trustee Keysar Trad and Imam Quddoos said they had not heard of the ban and supported the playing of the anthem at future assemblies.

The future of the proposed 60-studentl college at Carrara will be decided by Gold Coast City Council next year.

  1. Meanwhile, Greg Barnes whines in “Crikey” (021208) :

    “So why aren’t our political leaders condemning this outburst of xenophobia and racism? Where is Queensland Premier Anna Bligh? What about the federal and State MPs who represent the Gold Coast region? Ms Bligh should, particularly in the wake of the Mumbai terror attacks, hit the airwaves and make it clear the government will take whatever steps it has to within the law to stamp out prejudice and vilification of the type that is occurring on the Gold Coast.”

    What a turd. You’d be hard pressed to find a more “diverse” city than Mumbai and that diversity didn’t protect it. Yet turds like Barns wants to silence protests. What happened in Mumbai can easily happen over here, the only way to prevent such an attack is to deport the “religion of filth”, Mumbai was a warning, its victims and the crys of the bereaved should galvanise Australians into taking action against the spread of Islam in Australia, lest we meet the same fate.

  2. Why do the Governments all over the western world permit these Muslim schools ?-
    We know they indoctrinate the kids in segregation, – we know they take distance to our society, though they live in it.
    It is sad to see, that where ever Islam is promoted, most people become/are poorer than poor people in the west – there are no jobs, except, of course, the one of “Jihadist” –

    It would be good if everybody, Jews, Christians and Muslims, would read up on a couple of the 10 commandments – and live by them.!

    These few rules are ALL we need, to live peaceful together: Really.!

    1. “Worship no God but me” –
    Here is at least one, where we agree, – though Muslims took the name of their God from a pagan stone god.
    2. “Do not make Idols”………
    See here the Muslims are already off the path.! Mohammad is their IDOL.!????

    3A. “You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not acquit anyone who misuses his name”…………..
    B.diff. translation: “Do not use my name for evil purposes, for I, the LORD your God, will punish anyone who misuses my name.”
    “Evil purposes”……..Muslims kill in the name of THEIR God, – that’s Evil ……………. My God loves life, so it can’t be the same God, we have.!

    6. THOU SHALL NOT KILL………. period………THOU SHALL NOT KILL…………….
    It does NOT say, it is OK to kill Jews, Christians and the rest………… It says, don’t kill.!
    If Muslims accept Moses as one of the prophets, then why not accept the simple “words of God”, that he received.?
    What is it about “Don’t kill” that these people don’t understand.?
    How did this twist of laws happen ? – Mohammad happened !

    7. Thou shall not commit adultery………..
    The Muslims found a solution to mens “need” for more than one woman – they made it legal to have 4 wifes.! And to rape “infidels”………………
    8. Don’t steal …………
    Well, all societies knows about thieves; but in Muslim countries, they cut their hands of –
    that’s barbarian……..
    Is that the kind of justice you want, where you live.???????

    9. “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor”: –
    that means: Don’t lie………..!
    “It is all their own fault” – lies ………. “They brought it on themselves…” WHAT ? ?
    Did we give the suicide bombers their “weapons” – NOT.!
    Did we train them for this.? NOT
    Did we teach them to hate? NOT
    They did that all by themselves, – so how can attacking us be “our own fault”.??????

    “the West is at war with Islam.! ? ? ? ? ?
    No it is the other way around – “Islam is at war with the west” and with everybody else, that won’t submit.!
    “Land of Islam > Land of War” – there is only 2 choices.!
    WE ARE THE ONES, who are attacked – WE are defending ourselves, the best we can..(Politicians are not much help.!)

    10. “Do not desire another man’s house; do not desire his wife, his slaves, his cattle, his donkeys, or anything else that he owns.”
    I guess everybody in the world have had a case of “the Jones’es” once or twice – but not everybody acts on it.!
    Now THEY want our lands to themselves, and we have to submit to their causes!? ? ? ?
    NO WAY. !

    Some of the 10 Commandments are broken every day – by a lot of different people from all walks of life.
    But thousands, Asian and African Muslims breaks all of the above mentioned every day of their lives ……
    And THEY believe they go to heaven, if they kill some Jews, that’s is crazy, in sane.!
    how did this paragraph get so twisted? By whom?
    By Mohammad and his likes, that’s who.!

    “What did learn in school today, dear little boy of mine”
    What did learn in school today, dear little boy of mine ?

    I learned that Muslims are better off without Jews
    Christians, Hinhu’s – you can kill them too
    I learned Mohammad was the Ideal Man
    and I should copy him
    whenever I can –
    That’s what Ilerned in school today
    that’s what I learned in school.

  3. I go to another Islamic School in Brisbane and this is NOT what we muslims are like. We are all australians and I can’t believe they are doing this!
