Segregating kids according to parents’ beliefs is good? We think not!

Muslims in Southampton, UK, say an Islamic school for children is in great demand because many parents feel they are being failed by mainstream education.

Yes, probably because kids are not having the Koran rammed down their throats in mainstream schools.

The Echo tells us:

Plans for a private primary school to offer Islamic education for children in the city have been welcomed by parents, according to some of the city’s Mosques [my emphasis].

Zahir Ahmad, secretary of Southampton Central Abu Backr Mosque said parents had been talking about the planned private Islamic school and considering it for their children.

“It has been a talking point for many parents who feel their children would benefit,” he said.

So separating their children – who are not, anyway, of an age to choose a religion, and need to be exposed to several religions plus the option of none, of course, in order to be able to make an informed decision – from the children who don’t happen to have parents who subscribe to this hideous ideology is a good thing, is it?

How do you explain that, Mr Ahmad?
