Muslim babies a threat to British society

28th Feb 2014

Sir, Islamophobia has ingrained in the society so much that now Muslim babies are being targeted too according to your editorial on January 31. So many Muslim babies are born that they are threat to the British society, it “demonstrates an unprecedented change in the makeup of our country” and that they will “create problems in the future.”
This stigmatisation of Muslims is, as you argue, dangerous and should be of concern to all. No one would dare make such comments of birth of babies of other communities as they would be accused of anti Semitism and racism.

One Response to “Muslim babies a threat to British society”

Iftikhar AhmadFebruary 28, 2014

Muslim children need Muslim teachers as role models during their developmental period. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school. For higher studies and research, a Muslim teacher is not a priority. An un-qualified Muslim teacher is in a better position to educate Muslim children because he/she is in a better position to understand the needs and demands of the Muslim children.

State schools with non-Muslim monolingual teachers are slaughter houses for the Muslim children. Non-Muslim teachers are not role models for the Muslim children during their developmental periods. Muslim children have been leaving state school for the last 50 years with Identity Crises. They do not know where they belong. They find themselves cut off from their cultural heritage and are unable to enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry.

God has created diverse human beings to live in this tiny global village of one family. Creation by its very nature is diverse with different species, different communities, different cultures and languages. These differences represent the beauty and wonder but diversity is sometimes not fully appreciated, resulting in all sorts of clashes. The British society and Establishment must learn to respect and accommodate others, as if in a family.
