Australia: School allows Muslim students to leave the room to avoid singing the National Anthem

A CRANBOURNE primary school raised eyebrows during an assembly last week when its Islamic students were given the choice of leaving the room to avoid singing the Australian National Anthem.

But despite concern from parents, the principal of Cranbourne Carlisle Primary has strongly defended the school’s decision to allow its Islamic students to leave the Year 2-6 assembly, citing a religious month of mourning.

…“We were first welcomed to the assembly by two Grade 2 students, then as we were about to stand up for the national anthem, a teacher stepped in front of the school and asked that any student for whom this was against their culture to leave the hall and join a teacher waiting for them outside the hall,” she said.

“About 30-40 children left, all of Middle Eastern appearance.

“When we had finished singing the National Anthem, they all reappeared into the hall and sat with their classmates.

…But Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School Principal Cheryl Irving stood by the decision, telling Star News on Tuesday it was made in adherence with Muharram – the Islamic month of mourning associated with Shi’a Muslims in which they do not participate in “joyful events”.

    How’s that gun confiscation looking now, Australia?

  • moraywatson

    Rejoined their “classmates”? You won’t sing my national anthem with me, but you’re my “classmate”? I don’t fucking think so.

    With all the bowing down they are doing to the pisslamist it will be easier to have their heads removed.

  • tom_billesley

    Oppressed by Australian white privilege, the poor moslems have to leave the room.
    Why aren’t the kuffar made to leave the room for their haram singing? /sarc

    Muslim joyous events: stoning, public hanging, beheadings, book burning.

  • Hey Australia, it is only the tip of a very large wedge.

    Don’t worry.

    In the end, if you still have your head, you get to buy a burka for your daughter.

      Your pre-teen daughter will be abducted, “converted”, wed – and you won’t get an invite.

    Australians as elsewhere have to organize themselves in order to take back their schools. They have to fire principals and teachers who promote disrespect to their country, the society. If enough are fired, this appeasement will stop.

    Immigration only works with assimilation. Otherwise it’s poison for the society.

  • Why not go further and have them leave the country.

  • Norman_In_New_York

    There is nothing to stop Muslims from having their own private madrasas as long as required academic subjects are taught there. Oh, they have to pay their own way?

    • Blind Druid

      There’s the rub. No STEM subjects are taught in madrassas. Only Islamic indoctrination and hatred of the Jew and Kuffar.

  • Cat-astrophe

    They got it 1/2 right.
    The proper way to do it would be:
    1) Who needs to leave the room for religious reasons?
    2) Leave the room.
    3) Lock the door.
    4) Don’t come back. i.e.: go back to where you came from.

    Muslims aren’t the only problem. It’s the idiotic dhimmi enablers who should be shown the door as well. Parents…. it’s time to take some action and see what is going on inside your schools.

    BTW Jehovah’s Witnesses have had a similar priviledge in Canada for decades.
