Muslim immigrants and refugees who refuse to assimilate into the culture of their new communities are frantically trying to change society for us all. Kudos to the politically incorrect principal who stood up to them.
Muslim students at an elementary school in Germany will no longer be able to engage in “provocative” prayer sessions. Principal Christiane Genschel sent out a note to all teachers banning the unrolling of prayer mats in the classroom.
The “Religious Operations in the School” memo reads: “In recent weeks it has been seen that Muslim schoolchildren are visibly praying, signaled by ritual ablutions in the toilets, the rolling out of prayer rugs and the taking of appropriate body postures. This is not permitted.”
The school is located in the western German city of Wuppertal, the Daily Mail notes. The school’s staff and students had become uncomfortable and a bit unnerved by the impromptu religious activities going on during the school day, so the principal decided swift action was necessary to thwart the overtly Muslim ritual.
The Muslim children were engaging in far more than kneeling on their prayer mats during the school day. The students also engaged in “ritual ablutions” such as the washing of feet, during their daily religious rituals.
Visible praying is now permanently banned in the classroom. The disruption of the education process and special privileges for the Muslim students has now come to an end.
Liberals quickly registered their outrage over the principal’s memo, claiming discrimination against Muslims was at play. As usual, they were wrong.
Even though the teachers were instructed to inform the Muslim students in a friendly and kind way they would have to wait to practice their faith until they left school grounds, outrage quickly ensued. Protests outside the school have not materialized yet, but that doesn’t mean they won’t happen now that the story has gone viral.
What was going on inside the German school far exceeded the quiet act of a child, or children, praying in their seat at the cafeteria lunch table. Other students should never be made to feel uncomfortable or forced to watch this.
German laws do not specifically ban praying at school. But, freedom of religion is protected and the rights of both Muslim and non-Muslims students in the classroom must be respected!
Six years ago, the Federal Administrative Court ruled against a Muslim high school student demanding to be able to pray at school. The Berlin school’s decision to ban prayer because it threatened to “damage the peace” at the educational facility, was rightly upheld.
