A PRIVATE Islamic school is under investigation after it was revealed that teachers were telling pupils Jewish people were trying to take over the world and that musical instruments should be destroyed.
Pupils were also told British customs were anti-muslim, mixed sex organisations were evil, and that women should not be allowed to work.
The Islamic Tarbiyah Academy, Dewsbury, Yorkshire, teaches 40 primary-school aged children as well as running full-time classes for adults.
Mufti Zubair Dudha, the founder and head of the school, is a member of the hardline Deobandi sect which is believed to run around half the mosques in the UK.
He added: “The various forms of distractions have been successful to considerable extent in achieving their objectives.”
Other pamphlets said mixed-sex organisations were evil, told Muslims not to adopt British customs, not allow women to work and ban TV.
And in perhaps the most chilling document, he tells Muslims that they should be ready to “expend…even life” to create a world “according to Allah’s just order.”
Home affairs select committee chairman Keith Vaz said: ”After what we have seen in Paris and in Brussels and the way in which the Muslim community has come out so strongly in favour of peace and tolerance, I think these kinds of leaflets serve no purpose but to divide in a poisonous and totally reckless way.”
The Department for Education said: “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.”
