School Allows Certain Students to Walk out on National Anthem, Guess Who…
A PUBLIC primary school in Victoria Australia has come under fire for allowing Muslim students to walk out of assembly while the national anthem is being sung.
Lorraine McCurdy, who has two grandchildren at the school, said she was furious when school officials invited students to leave during Advance Australia Fair.
“Two children got up and said ‘welcome to our assembly’ and with that a teacher came forward and said all those who feel it’s against their culture may leave the room,” Ms McCurdy told Melbourne radio station 3AW yesterday.
“With that about 30 or 40 children got up and left the room. We sang the national anthem and they all came back in.
“I saw red, I’m Australian and I felt ‘you don’t walk out on my national anthem’.”
Scott Morrison, a senior Australian government minister, has criticized the school which allowed Muslim students to leave an assembly for singing the national anthem during a religious period of mourning.
The head of Cranbourne Carlisle primary school allowed Shia Muslim students aged eight to ten to leave the assembly, saying it was the Muharram period for the children, a sacred month when Shia Muslims observe a period of mourning, and they should not be required to take part in “joyous” events.
Patriots took to Youtube to vent their frustration at the school. I should warn you, they’re angry and some strong language was used:
According to Telegraph, Kuranda Seyit, from the Islamic Council of Victoria, said the situation was a “storm in a teacup”.
“I think that it is important that we don’t blow this out of proportion, and understand that the national anthem is something that Muslims take great pride in singing,” he told The Age. “In this particular incident it happened at a time when they were not allowed to sing and I think we should respect that choice.”
