Non-Muslim Brit boys detained for not praying to AllahJuly 5th, 2008 - 4:54 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 5 (ANI): Two twelve-year-old non-Muslim boys were placed under detention on Friday for refusing to pray to Allah.
The boys angry parents said that their children were also ordered to don Islamic headgear, kneel and pour water over their feet.
A female teacher, who ordered the boys to pray to Allah during a religious education lesson at Alsager High School in Cheshire, is now facing an inquiry, the Sun reports.
The grandfather of one of the boys said: If Muslims were asked to go to church and take Holy Communion there would be war.
The mothers of the two children — Sharon Luinen and Karen Williams expressed their outrage over the incident, and said it was not right to punish children for not wanting to join in Muslim prayers.
Cheshire County Council spokesman Ian Callister said: Inquiries are being made. (ANI)
