From the Daily Mail, but actually from Channel 4's documentary to be aired Wednesday:
So...why are you in a Western country anyway?
Now, for the pertinent question: is this typical of such schools?
Ahh i should of been nicer to muslims otherwise this would of never happend!
Daily Mail is one of those tabloid rags right? Even so I don't doubt this goes on. There is a very large Muslim population in Britain. If I remember correctly it's mostly Pakistani. There will undoubtedly be some of these schools.
Regardless of what faith the school is any school that condones this kind of stuff needs to have it's accreditation stripped, or whatever the authorities provide it that makes it legitimate. Unfortunately this will probably just reinforce people's inherent prejudices against the vast majority of British Muslims that don't attend these schools, and that think radical Islam is for the birds.
Well, it's all our fault anyway so we should feel pity on these people.
That's the big question indeed... Both whether this is typical for Darul Uloom, and whether other such schools are like it.
Channel 4's hidden camera was there for four months, so depending on what you call typical - and assuming those four months are representative - it does look like it is typical for this school.
And considering that this school is the most famous one, with the biggest waiting lists, and high tuition and therefore likely to have students of resourceful families - the kind of families to have students and parents that would be more likely to protest such treatment, I find it probable that this could be typical for other such schools as well.
Though I've never liked the idea of religious private schools anyway.
Note that the Daily Mail is just reporting what will be shown by Channel 4 - which I understand is quite a reputable channel.
there really should be no religious schools.
education must not be private as it's a matter of society.
Fix'd it for him.
religious education is counter productive
I would think that these schools are the training for the "leaders" of the rest of the Muslims. To lead one must "know" the Quran. It is not much different than your typical military school, just starting at a younger age, than one is accustomed to.
I support these schools. Sure there are problems but they are better than the regular schools that preach the values of the Frankfurt school. These schools preach a system that works. Considering that western society is full of the frankfurt school's values these guys have to segregate to be free from it.
As for the violence there is violence in all schools. You could probably write a similar article slamming regular teachers for everything from violence to child porn.
Scumbags. And idiots. Why move to one of the most secularised countries on Earth if you are a religious zealot? Should be done for child abuse and all religious schools should be secular.
Al, we're discussing schools in Britain now, not the hellhole that is Sweden...
It's pretty funny that this sort of thing happens in Western democracies. People aren't nearly as angry as they ought to be. Squelch the savagery, please.
Taking the Koran seriously causes brain damage.
This is why I love threads like this.
So we have obvious abuses at one Muslim school, most of which were apparently committed by the same teacher or students he put in charge? Prosecute him and the others for using techniques frequently used in Catholic Schools and many others not all that long ago.
Although you wrote this in response to me I am not quite sure what to make of it, to be honest. I feel like I have tapped a well of unimaginable irony but I am not quite sure.
To me these schools represent a common phenomenon--not particular to any religion--of crazy parents putting their kids in crazy schools.
Do these schools receive public funding?
