Islamic Imams and other religious scholars granted access to school pupils will be vetted for radical Islamist views under the new British Government guidelines, reports ‘The Daily Telegraph.’DJ:
The daily said a package of measures, due to be published next week, will set out controversial moves to invite imams into the classroom to speak against violent extremism.
British-born Islamic scholars will teach citizenship in an effort to undermine any dangerous influences being exerted on youngsters elsewhere, it added.
Recently, the British government has given a warning that school children are at risk of being manipulated by Islamic extremists.IT'S A GOOD START.
Ed Balls, the British Secretary for Children, Schools and Families, gave a warning that school children were at risk of being exposed to Islamic extremism. He has brought up fears that these children could be new recruits for militant Islamic movements. Balls has urged teachers to attack the problem early by winning the “hearts and minds.”
The term “hearts and minds” is not new. Several months ago, the newest update to the US Army Manual added a section on winning the “hearts and minds” of the locals. This has been the newly adopted term for many initiatives across the globe.
The call towards an initiative comes forth after the restaurant bombing in Exeter last week. According to the police, the suspect was someone educated in Britain and then converted to Islam. They suspect that the person converted to radical Islam.
Balls warned that while the Islamic radicals are a small minority in Britain, they are still a dangerous minority. He also gave the realistic perspective that there are a few children that have already been converted. In short, Balls’ initiative is to ensure schools are well-equipped and well-prepared to tackle such a problem.
IMHO: ANYONE ADVOCATING SHARIA AND JIHAD SHOULD BE EITHER PERMANENTLY EXILED (IF THEY ARE NOT CITIZENS) OR JAILED FOR SEDITION (IF THEY ARE CITIZENS).
