Muslim children are being spoon‑fed misogyny
Ofsted has uncovered evidence of prejudiced teaching at Islamic schools but ministers continue to duck the problem.
It’s OK to beat your wife, says Islamic school book.
Library books which urge women to be submissive to their husbands and never refuse sex are among a dossier of misogynistic material inspectors have found in Islamic schools.
Ofsted has compiled a file of the worst examples of discrimination and sexism its inspectors encountered. The material includes excerpts from library books and children’s marked work which sanction domestic violence.
Among the worst examples was a book discovered in a school library entitled, “Women who deserve to go to hell” which said that it was wrong for wives to show “ingratitude to their husband” or “have tall ambitions”.
Ofsted said the material it collected was out of step with mainstream Muslim thinking and came from maintained schools as well as independent faith schools and unregistered schools.
Well, that IS what it says in the Qur’an...https://t.co/7vtYtebx8s— Tom Holland (@holland_tom) November 28, 2017
