‘Sodomy is so awful even animals abhor it, except pigs’

Homophobic and misogynistic books are found in the library of a private Islamic school

A private Islamic primary school failed an Ofsted inspection after officials found homophobic and misogynistic books in its library.

Officials said the east London school, which charges fees of £2,600 a year, had failed to protect pupils from extreme views.

An excerpt from one book at Zakariya Primary School read: ‘Many so-called wise people are committing it, but sodomy is such an awful thing that even animals abhor it except the pigs.’
