Teaching assistant Suriyah Bi claims she was sacked for objecting to children being shown a clip of the 9/11 attacks
A Muslim teacher is taking legal action against a school over claims she was sacked for objecting to children being shown a video of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Suriyah Bi, 24, lost her job at Heartlands Academy in Birmingham, after just a week of being a teaching assistant in a year seven class there.
She claims that she was shown the door after she complained it was not appropriate for the 11 and 12-year-olds in her class to watch the ‘X-rated’ clip – that showed the horrors of the attacks on World Trade Center in New York, in September 2001.
Ms Bi, an Oxford University Graduate, from Yardley in Birmingham, is now pursuing claims against the school for unfair dismissal and religious discrimination.
The video was not mentioned in detail during the brief preliminary hearing which dealt with technical and legal matters.
But outside the hearing, Ms Bi said: ‘It was shown to some 30 children during class. I understand the video was shown without the permission of the authorities.
