  1. British society must learn to respect and tolerate those who are different. Muslim community not only needs Mosques for prayers and education but state funded Muslim school with Muslim teachers as role models. There is no place for a non-Muslim child or a teacher in a Muslim school. Muslim community also needs separate grave yards for their love ones. There is no place for a non-Muslim grave in a Muslim grave yard.

    A report by the Institute for Community Cohesion found that native parents were deserting some schools after finding their children out numbered by pupils from ethnic minorities. Schools in parts of England are becoming increasingly segregated. The study focused on 13 local authorities. Many of the schools and colleges are segregated and this was generally worsening over recent years. This is RACISM because British society is the home of institutional racism. My statement regarding Muslim schools where there is no place for non-Muslim child or a teacher is based on educational process and not on racism. Muslim children need Muslim teachers during their developmental periods. For higher studies and research, Muslim teacher is not a priority.

    There are hundreds of state and church schools where Muslim children are in majority. In my opinion, all such schools may be opted out as Muslim Academies

  2. Britain is VERY lucky they have few actual African-Americans like we do here, that you have a small Muslim community the racists pick on. If you had huge groups of young black men, these racists would either disappear or get killed. The reason we have no more nazis or racists openly in America is they would be shot on sight…..these kids only act this way because the Muslims they attack don’t fight back. Try that in New York you yobs….
