'Muslim Eton' at centre of Channel 4 hate-preaching allegations is forced to shut over far-Right safety fears

[Left: Birmingham's Lib/Dem John Hemming. How deeply does John Hemming love Islam and Muslims? As deep as n- Muslim votes - that's how deeply.]

- By Daily Mail Reporter, 14th February 2011, from the Mail Online

An Islamic school at the centre of a documentary row will close tomorrow amid safety fears.

Teachers at the Darul Uloom Islamic High School, in Small Heath, Birmingham, have held meetings with police chiefs and fear that youngsters could be targeted by the far-Right. [Yes, turn everyone's attention to the fictional 'far right'. That is, use the tried and tested Muslim technique of painting Islam - or Muslims - as the victim. Always the victim - from Gaza to Birmingham. Yet so many Muslims are actually the aggressors - the criminal in politics and social life generally. How the hell do they pull this example of pure taqiyya off? With leftist and left-liberal help - that's how.]
The Dispatches documentary, Lessons in Hatred and Violence, aired tonight and showed footage of a preacher making offensive remarks about Hindus and ranting: 'Disbelievers are the worst creatures'.

But teachers at the school insist the undercover reporter captured an isolated incident where a 17-year-old senior student was talking to pupils. [Always an 'isolated incident'! Why so many isolated incidents and why all the time?]

They have provided a letter which shows that he was expelled for his views last August - five months before the school was made aware of the tapes by producers.

A Birmingham faith leader has now backed the school's record of teaching tolerance and MP John Hemming said he believed the documentary was irresponsible and had put schoolchildren at risk. [How the hell is that?]

Fears: Mujahid Aziz of the Darul Uloom Islamic High School & College in Birmingham has brought half term forward after meetings with police:

The school's head of curriculum Mujahid Aziz said the decision had been to bring forward the school's half-term by a week after meetings with police.

Pupils were being told not to return to classes until the start of March.

'They filmed for six months and managed to collect a handful of comments which promote intolerance,' said Mr Aziz.
'We were aware of the views of this 17-year-old student and we dealt with him by exclusion straight away - before we even knew that we were being filmed. [Even if this man is telling the truth - truth is not something respected in Islam - that exclusion would also have still been the result of outside (non-Muslim) pressure on mosques and madrassas - not internal Islamic self-criticism - which doesn't exist.]

'What people will see in that clip is completely contrary to what we teach at the school about harmony and awareness of different faiths. [The kuffar is finding out the truth. And these Muslims don't like it.]

'Our concern now is for the safety of children and people coming to the mosque because we are worried that some people will get completely the wrong impression once they have watched this programme.

'After meeting with the police, we are bringing the half-term forward and we have been advised that there should be plenty of staff around on Monday night as a precaution.'

The Dispatches documentary will show hidden camera footage from several religious schools, including the Darul Uloom.

At the Markazi Jamia mosque in Keighley, west Yorkshire, a preacher was filmed hitting and kicking young boys at Koran reading classes.

Reporter Tazeen Ahmad claims the footage is evidence of a 'hardline, intolerant and highly anti-social version of Islam' being taught in Britain's independent Islamic schools.

Birmingham's Darul Uloom is among an estimated 2,000 UK schools for Muslim pupils which opt out of education authority control but are still subjected to government inspections.
The 130-pupil academy on Coventry Road, which is connected to the Jami Masjid mosque, was given a glowing report in 2009 for its interfaith teachings.

A hidden camera installed by a reporter at a school in Birmingham recorded a preacher telling pupils 'the disbelievers are the worst creatures, they are the worst creatures'.

The 11-year-olds are then told not to trust more liberal Muslims.

Their teacher said:
'The person who's got less than a fistful of beard, then you should stay away from him the same way you should stay away from a serpent or a snake.'

Another group of pupils are told in an assembly at the school: 'The disbelievers, they are the worst of all people. The Hindus do, they drink piss, I've told you this. Do they have any intellect? No.'

Birmingham MP John Hemming (Lib Dem, Yardley) said Channel 4's portrayal of the school was irresponsible.

'If Channel 4 thinks this is a school where racism and intolerance is accepted in any way, they have got their facts seriously wrong,' he said.
'They have already had hate mail and now they are having to close for the safety of their pupils.

'This kind of documentary is ideal fodder for the EDL [English Defence League]. [Wasn't David Cameron's speech also 'ideal fodder for the EDL'? Maybe. But this fodder just happens to be true. What's a careerist MP gonna do about it? It depends on how many Muslim votes he requires.]

'Channel 4 is putting the safety of children at risk by criticising a school which is doing its job properly.'

Mr Hemming was backed by Yann Lovelock, a Buddhist who sits on the executive board of Birmingham Interfaith Council.

He said: 'They have gone out of their way to make other faiths feel welcome and I have been invited to the school several times to speak to pupils about Buddhism.

'As far as I can see, they do everything they can to promote tolerance and understanding and I am happy to work with them.'

Dispatches sparked controversy back in 2008 with its Undercover Mosque investigation into Birmingham's Green Lane Masjid, where preachers were secretly filmed allegedly preaching hate against homosexuals and non-Muslims.

A spokesman for West Midlands Police said:
'Limited details are known as to what the filming will show.

'We will be working with our partners in and monitoring any community tension which may arise as a result of the programme.'

A spokesman for Channel 4 said: 'This investigation, which i s clearly in the public interest, shows secret footage of numerous adults on different occasions teaching pupils as young as 11 years of age contempt for other religions and wider society.

'We stand by our investigation and think the programme speaks for itself.'
