NEW citizenship lessons have been proposed to prevent Muslim pupils from becoming suicide bombers and increase their participation in British society.That'll do it. Let's read on:
Young Muslims will be asked to consider the impact of the 7/7 bombings on their victims; encouraged to report terrorist plots to the police; and women advised not to wear the full Islamic veil to “avoid confrontation”.
A lesson on the “sacredness of life and property” aims to teach pupils “that it is unlawful to make oneself into a suicide bomb and kill others in a country where Muslims have given a religious promise to respect its laws”.Ah.
And if Muslims haven't made that promise? I guess it would be lawful.
Sources at the Department of Communities and Local Government, which has been monitoring the programme, confirmed that it wanted it to be used nationally.
