UK: Christian school hosts Islamic workshop — girls given hijabs, non-Muslim students perform Islamic prayers.

When will you see an Islamic school hosting a Christian speaker who gives students cross necklaces and teaches them Christian prayer? Never, of course. As always, the attempts at “dialogue” and “mutual understanding” go only one way. Perhaps the administrators at Our Lady & St Patrick’s School want to accustom the students to the people who in the not-too-distant future are going to be their masters and overlords.

Britain is finished.

“Maryport youngsters learn about Islam,” Times & Star, March 23, 2018:

Maryport youngsters have been learning about life as a Muslim.

Pupils at Our Lady & St Patrick’s School had their eyes opened to other cultures as they embraced an Islamic workshop led by Imran Kotwal, founder of Muslim Learning services.

The agency provides school visits to help build an understanding of Islamic faith and life. Mr Kotwal was previously a teacher and now teaches Islam to young people of all faiths or none.

Assistant headteacher Hilary Long said it was important for the school to be more diverse and tolerant of other religions.

During the workshop, Mr Kotwal introduced children to the Five Pillars of Islam and highlighted what each one represented. He taught pupils about Muslim worship and showed them how to use a prayer mat.

Youngsters tried on traditional Muslim dress including a head scarf and prayer cap. They sampled dates, which are considered a blessed fruit in Islam and are consumed during the holy month of Ramadan.

Mrs Long said as part of the school’s RE curriculum, they are learning about people of other faiths, which has resulted in them having a visit from a member of the Islamic community….

“It is important that our children have positive experiences and encounters with all members of our community.”
