Father refuses to let stepdaughter do homework about converting to Islam
A Briton has spoken of his concern after his stepdaughter was asked to write to her family about why she is converting to Islam for her homework. One Mark McLachlan, from Northern England’s Houghton-le-Spring, has slammed the decision by the Kepier school to ask students to write a letter to their family about converting to Islam, reports metro.co.uk. The 43-year-old refused to let his 12-year-old stepdaughter, who he has asked not to be named, complete the task after failing to see what the letter would accomplish. “What I don’t want is a school asking my stepdaughter to look into reasons for converting to another religion. Like every parent, it is our decision on how we raise them and once they are old enough to make decision, then it is their choice,” he said. Mark visited the school to raise his concerns and was told that this was part of the curriculum and was shown example exam questions for Islam, Christianity and Hinduism. Mark said: “I have no problem with them learning about religions but I feel they should not be asking 12-year-olds to write to their parents about why they are converting. I just found the task wholly inappropriate.” Mark took a photo of the assignment and posted it online, where it has been shared hundreds of times.
