A Sydney school has been ‘caught’ sending letters home to parents claiming the federal government has imposed a register for all students who attend prayer meetings, which radical Islamic groups have grabbed onto as evidence of ‘oppression’ by the Australian government.
(And this is a BAD thing because why?)
Perth Now In the letter from Marsden High School principal Gus Vrolyk last Wednesday, parents were told that a register of all students who attended prayer meetings and groups would be maintained.
“It is now a federal government requirement that a register of attendance is kept of all students who attend prayer meetings/groups at schools,” the letter stated. “When students attend a prayer meeting/group, their name will be recorded by a teacher and this register will be kept by the school.”
The letter is being circulated by members of hard line jihadist political party ‘Hizb ut-Tahrir,’ who claim the letter is evidence that the government is monitoring Muslim children. (It’s about time)
One of the group’s spokesjihadists Hamzah Qureshi shared a photo of the letter, along with the caption: “These are the letters that have started to be sent to Muslim parents in NSW Australia. If your child prays at school, they will be placed on a register. No doubt, such a register will be ‘exploited’ (for counter-terrorism investigations) in the future … It is time for the community to take a stand!
The letter also included a permission slip for parents who wished their children to attend prayer meetings to sign.
Last month, NSW premier Mike Baird announced an audit of prayer meetings across the state following revelations a Muslim extremist was preaching to students at a school in Sydney’s west during lunchtimes.
