And the latest from Dhimmiland UK, is that some schools may now shut completely – for Ramadan.
Yep – you read it correctly the first time. In some areas of the country, entire schools will close for the Muslim festival.
From an article in the Daily Mail:
Now local authorities including Manchester, Oldham and Tower Hamlets in East London are granting schools permission to close for up to three days to cover holy days such as the Islamic festivals of Eid al Fitr and Eid ul Adha.
Strange, isn’t it? Jews, Hindus, Pagans, Buddhists, and Sikhs have always managed perfectly well in Britain; we take the occasional day off to observe and enjoy our respective religion’s holy days and festivals – but nobody would ever have dreamed of even suggesting that entire schools be closed down!
Yet now it seems as though the Muslim festival of Ramadan is being given the status of a national holiday!
Why on earth should non Muslim pupils lose out, and why on earth should non Muslim parents be forced to reorganise their timetables, just because it’s Ramadan…?
I’m British and Jewish. I applaud learning about other faiths and their customs – indeed, at age eleven I chose to attend a mixed faith school.
But being prevented from attending school just because members of a completely different religion are observing a festival?
This is not ‘multiculturalism’.
This is LUNACY.
