Eurabia Update from Insane Britannia: “Primary school cancels nativity play because it interferes with Muslim festival of Eid,” by Chris Johnson for the Daily Mail, December 3 (thanks to Alexandre):
A primary school infuriated parents after cancelling the traditional Christmas nativity play to make way for the Muslim festival of Eid.
Parents at the Nottingham school were told that the planned performance had to be pulled because some of the pupils wanted to celebrate Eid at home with their families.
In a letter, sent by the staff at Greenwood Junior School, mothers and fathers were told: ‘It is with much regret that we have had to cancel this year’s Christmas performances.
‘This is due to the Eid celebrations that take place next week and its effect on our performers.’
However, following a barrage of complaints, a second letter was issued saying the show had ‘not been cancelled outright’ but has been postponed until the New Year.
The follow-up letter, sent by headteacher Amber Latif and chair of governors Yvonne Wright, apologised for the ‘misunderstanding’ caused by the first correspondence.
It read: ‘We are a very inclusive school and fully respect the cultures and religions of all the children.
‘We are upset to know that some of our parents/carers have been offended by the letter.
‘The Christmas performance has not been cancelled outright but has been postponed until the New Year.’…
