Berlin bars Muslim boy from prayers (Loganswarning)
Fri, 28 May 2010

A German court has rejected a legal bid by a 16-year-old Muslim student to have the right to conduct prayers at his school, reports say.
The court in Berlin ruled on Thursday against Yunis’ bid to pray, stating that it would upset peace in the school, and abuse students’ rights to the entitlement of a calm and educational environment, Reuters reported.
The maintenance of an academic school environment takes precedence over the student’s right to religious observance, the appeals court said.
“The Islamic prayer ritual has a demonstrative character and serves as social control,” a Berlin Senate official said in favor of the ruling.
“This is a good day for the Berlin school,” school director Brigitte Burchardt said after the verdict.
She said the decision would reduce potential conflict that may arise in the school.
Last year the same pupil had initially been given the right to pray once a day in the same school. This year a higher Berlin court overturned that judgment.

  1. Human being is a product of his culture, language and faith. There is a positive co-relation between language and culture. If Muslims become notoriously monolingual Brits than there is a likely hood that they will adopt English culture. They will still be the underdogs of the British society. In the past they were victim of Paki-bashing in all walks of life by the British society in every walks of life becuase majority of them were not well versed in local accents. Now Muslim youths born and educated by British education sysytm are being victim of terrorism by British establishment. Thousands of them are being searched by Police in streets and many of them are behind the bar without any trial. A lot of Muslim youths are imprisoned by British courts on the slightest excuses. The number of Muslim prisoners is on the increase in British jails. When they come out of jail they will become real criminals and terrorists while British foreign minister has said that Muslims are law abiding and committed citizens.

    I am concerned with the education of bilingual Muslim children. I set up the
    first Muslim school in London in 1981 and now there are round about 140
    Muslim schools and only 11 are state funded. I would like to see each and
    every Muslim child to be in a Muslim school.

    A study by Bristol University reveals that a high level of racial
    segregation in Oldham schools and tension between communities resulted in
    recent riots in 2001. The solution is that those schools where Muslim
    children are majority, may be designated as Muslim community schools. The
    native parents do not want their children to be educated along with migrant
    chiildren. As soon as they find that the number of other children are on the
    increase, they remove their children to those schools where native children
    are in majority.

    In the 70s, when I raised ithe issue of bilingualism and Muslim schools, I
    was given the impression that British education system does not believe in
    bilingualism. According to varities of studies, a child will suffer if
    he/she finds himself cut off from his/her cultural and linguistic roots.
    Arabic is our religious language and each and every Muslim must be well
    versd in Quranic Arabic. This the main reason why I believe that Pakistani
    parents must find marriage partners from Pakistan for their children.
    Pakistani children and youths suffer more than others because they find
    themselves cut off from the literature and poetry. Majority of them are not
    even well versed in Standard English. This is the main rason why majority of
    Pakistani children leave schools without goood qualification. English is
    their economic language while Urdu is their social and emotional and Arabic
    is their religious language.

    There are hundreds of state schools where Muslim children are in majority.
    In my opinion, all such schools may be designated as Muslim community
    schools with bilingual Muslim teachers as role models. There is no place for
    a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school.

    Bilingual Muslim children have been in state schools for the last 50 years. They have been suffering from Paki-bashing. They have been unable to develop their confidence and self-esteem due to racism and bullying. This is one of the main reason why they have been unable to achieve good grades. They have been suffering from Identity Crises. They do not know where they belong. Muslim school with bilingual Muslim teachers is only the answer.

  2. IftikharA: "There is no place for
    a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school."
    Self explanatory. Just one more illustration of who we dealing with.

  3. Leon, Iftikhara has left the same post on an umpteenth number of times. One big cut and paste full of whining nonsense.

    You just managed to cut through all of it with one big easy slice. Se how easy it is to deflate the Mohammedan?

    Good going, Cheers/KGS
