Australia: Christian Schools Should also Celebrate Ramadan, Say Muslims

Schools that celebrate Christmas should also embrace other non-Christian religious festivals, Muslim leaders say.

Keysar Trad, president of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, called on the Victorian Education Department to include the traditions of other religious faiths as part of the formal school curriculum.

“Schools have religious programs – but generally they’re elective, they’re not compulsory,” he said.

“To have an awareness of these festivals can be very enriching for all students, including people who go to secular schools.”

Oh, are Muslims also to celebrate Christmas? I know, I know.. no reciprocity, of course.

    Muslim schools get up to all sorts of nasty and criminal behaviour such as being told to call Jews apes and pigs,that non-Muslims are inferior, that Muhammad is to be copied in everything e.g rape,murder,lying,stealing,cheating etc. Music of course is forbidden,in short almost everything a normal child would do or want to do.
    Why when Islam has no respect for any other religion would Christians want anything to do with Islam?!
