A private Muslim school in Yorkshire is promoting an extreme form of Islam, claiming that Jews are engaged in a global conspiracy to take over the world and that adopting British customs is forbidden. Leaflets available at a Muslim school warn against adopting British customs and watching TV – and say women should not go to work
The Islamic Tarbiyah Academy in Dewsbury teaches 140 primary school children in an after-school madrasa and runs full-time classes for over-16s and adults.
In one leaflet Mufti Zubair Dudha, the centre’s founder and head quotes the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an early 20th Century anti-Semitic forgery, which claims to prove Jewish people are engaged in a global conspiracy.
He claims that colourful pictures, films, magazines and sporting celebrities are part of the conspiracy to “poison the thinking and minds” of young Muslim people.
Other leaflets and newsletters, some of which are distributed to Deobandi mosques, say all mixed-sex institutions are evil, warn Muslims not to adopt British customs, ban the watching of TV, and tell women not to go out to work and to be fully covered before leaving the house.
In a section on jihad he tells Muslims they should be prepared to “expend … even life” to create a world organised “according to Allah’s just order”.
The Department for Education told us: “These serious allegations are under investigation. While it would be inappropriate to comment on the specific investigations of these institutions, we are clear that extremism has no place in our society and we are determined to protect children from it.”
But in a statement, Mr Dudha told Sky News: “It saddens me greatly that certain extracts from our publications have been taken and misrepresented to link the Academy with extremism. We fully believe in the importance and need of integration whilst being able to practise our faith.”
“We fully believe in the importance and need of integration whilst being able to practise our faith.” By which he means practicing the faith of subjugating infidels and integrating them into Islam (or killing those who refuse).
“It saddens me greatly that certain extracts from our publications have been taken and misrepresented”
Always the same excuse. “Taken out-of-context” we hear this after every challenge to the Islamic doctrine for instance…….
Sahih Bukhari Hadith Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”
…….how can I interpret this other than Moslems being urged to kill Jews? It doesn’t say ‘There is Jew behind me come and tickle him with a feather’ it clearly say “Kill” him.
