“I don’t agree with sending my child to a mosque to learn about a religion that isn’t my own.”

Pupils withdrawn from trip to Edinburgh mosque

A RACE row has broken out after almost a third of the children due to take part in a school field trip to a city mosque were pulled out by their parents. Children from Newtongrange Primary visited the Central Mosque in Potterrow, but from an original group of 90 pupils, 28 were withdrawn.

The trip had been organised to help educate the primary one, two and five pupils about other religions and cultures. But one parent today said they didn’t want their child “mixed up in the hate being preached in mosques”.

From the comments: “Muslim children are regularly excluded from many school activities due to their parents wishes. Where’s the press attention when Muslim kids are told not to attend classes on for example…. Evolution?
