Parents stand for the second day in a row in front of a school in Batley, West Yorkshire, England. They express their dissatisfaction with the teacher who showed the students the drawings of the Islamic prophet Mohammed earlier this week. Now the Ministry of Education has responded – condemning the protests. “Intimidation or intimidation of teachers is never acceptable,” a ministry spokesman said.
Various British media reports said the school had already apologized to students who found the material “completely inappropriate” and suspended the teacher. Like the BBC And der ்ட Guardian. According to reports, they are caricatures of the French satire magazine “Charlie Hebdo”.
According to the parents, this is an attack on Islam, which rejects the images of Mohammed. Many of the students at Badley Grammar School come from Muslim faith families. An independent investigation into the incidents has been launched.
Meanwhile, a petition has also been launched Bring the teacher back to school.
“The kind of protests we have seen with threats and boycotts of corona controls are completely unacceptable and must be stopped,” the Ministry of Education said.
