CAIRO – A British council has presented resource packs covering the basic teachings of Islam to primary schools across the London borough of Harrow in an effort to provide a better understanding of the Muslim faith, according to a local daily.
“The new resources will help school staff further develop their approach to high quality teaching of Islam — a religion that is far too often misunderstood,” the Harrow Times Monday, June 27, quoted as saying Councilor Navin Shah, leader of Harrow borough Council, which has become the first to fully fund the teaching of Islam in primary schools.
The resource packs include books, artifacts, CDs, videos and teaching aids covering the basic Muslim beliefs and practices through interactive class projects.
Resources for secondary schools are also being developed and will be
available to schools across the borough, according to the paper.
The packs for primary schools were produced by the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), in partnership with the Department of Education and Skills.
“We believe education is the key to creating a vibrant and understanding society,” MCB Secretary General, Iqbal Sacranie, told Harrow Times.
That’s Sir Iqbal to you, buddy.
“These resources, developed by our team of educationalists,…
Iqbal, I believe the word you are searching for is “sensationalists.”
…aim to support the teaching of Islam in schools by making available creative, engaging and child-friendly resources on Islam and Muslims.”
“We want to ensure that every school child in Britain has access to high quality Islamic resources through their schools,” he added…
Remember: the MCB boycotted Holocaust remembrance ceremonies commemorating the liberation of Auschwitz. And now they are teaching British children about Islam.
