UK: Female headteacher is forced to work from home following death threats from Muslim parents over her ‘offensive clothes’ amid fears there is a ‘Trojan Horse’ plot to ‘Islamicise’ the school, by Charlie Moore.
A primary school headteacher has been forced to work from home by death threats from Muslim parents who hate her western values.
Trish O’Donnell, head of Clarksfield Primary School in Oldham, has endured ‘harassment and intimidation’ in the form of ‘aggressive verbal abuse’ and ‘threats to blow up her car’ from parents pushing conservative Muslim ideals. …
Parents have complained the way she dresses is ‘unsuitable’ and that pictures of her daughters in her office are ‘offensive’.
The school is mostly filled with Pakistani pupils who do not speak English as a first language. …
Since becoming head in 2006, Mrs O’Donnell has taken the school Ofsted rating from needing improvement to good. But now she feels her position is untenable due to the pressure from Muslim parents trying to change the school from within. …
Threats? Us? No, of course not.
The council report says the school’s 2013 parent-governor Nasim Ashraf hosted ‘Islamic teaching sessions’ at the school while his wife, Hafizan Zaman, ‘made remarks to Asian staff members that they should be wearing a veil and covering their heads’.
They took exception to Hindi music being played in class, were angered by sex education and were accused of intimidating staff and undermining the headteacher.
The report said they tried to mobilise parents to ‘secure changes at the school to reflect their interpretation of Islam’ but did not suggest they were involved in the violent threats.
Ashraf’s sister Shasta Khan is serving eight years in jail for plotting to attack Jews in Manchester.
Colonization, not assimilation.
