Sir, Thank you for publishing the article on Alif Academy’s celebration of Inter Faith Week. I am deeply concerned about Alif’s decision to participate in this [and] the extent that they did.
I appreciate the need to learn about other religions. However, our head teachers need to think about what it is they are actually promoting via Inter Faith Week and what it is they are actually teaching our children. Through Islam we learn about these other religions Allah has told us clearly about them in the Qur’an.
At primary age I believe it is vital that we embed Islam into our children first and foremost before we expose them so openly and more worryingly so welcomingly to other religions which are clearly based upon shirk [polytheism].
