UK Teachers: We’re Scared to Tackle Extremism in Case We’re Called ‘Islamophobes’

From July this year, British teachers will have a legal requirement to report students they believe to be at risk of radicalisation. But Sara Khan of counter-extremist group Inspire told The Guardian that many teachers could be too scared to perform their new duty – a fact that the newspaper saved for paragraph 20 of its 26 paragraph report into the monitoring of students.

“Some teachers have told us ‘we’re scared of being accused of being Islamophobic’ … and when some Muslim and Islamist organisations are saying this is Islamophobia, or other teachers say this is spying on Muslim kids, you can see why some feel like that.

“Safeguarding children from extremism is not Islamophobic, but you’ve got to make sure the way you do it is appropriate. If people don’t understand the issue or don’t seek expert help, they will tend to make mistakes”…

    If you’re called an Islamiphobe, what will happen?
    Court, gaol, public beheading?

      Yup, all three in the UK.

    To know what is right and not do it is cowardice, and much of British officialdom has freaked out.

    They should simply stop having schools. Turn everything over to the chavs, retards, Muslims and other losers. Soon literacy will be against the law.
