A RELIGIOUS Teacher at the centre of a row over a so-called Islamophobic cartoon has said he fears for his life after facing calls for him to be beheaded like French teacher Samuel Paty.
The teacher – who Politicalite is not naming for his own safety – fears he and his family will be murdered following protests by Islamic Extremists outside Batley Grammar School in West Yorkshire.
The religious education teacher is in hiding under Police protection following protests and death threats and fears that his career is “over”.
“It’s all over, he will never be able to return to his job or his home.” his father said.
He added: “My son keeps breaking down crying and says that it’s all over for him. He is worried that he and his family are all going to be killed.”
“He knows that he’s not going to be able to return to work or live in Batley. It’s just going to be too dangerous for him and his family.”
“Look what happened to the teacher in France who was killed for doing the same thing. Eventually they will get my son and he knows this. His whole world has been turned upside down. He’s devastated and crushed.”
“When he starts speaking, he just breaks down and cries. He’s become an emotional wreck.”
“He feels that everything is broken and to be honest, it’s hard to console him at the moment because that is the truth.”
JAIL BRITS WHO MOCK ISLAM, SAYS GOV’T ADVISOR
BRITS who mock Islam and the Prophet Mohammad could face the same fate as those who are racist towards Black people and could even end up in jail it is feared after a leading Government expert on Islamophobia remarked on the Batley school row.
Islamic Imam Qari Asim MBE, who is chair of the Mosques and Imams National Advisory Board (MINAB), and the British Government’s adviser on Islamophobia, called for the “change in social attitudes”.
He also says that those who mock a religion should be treated like those who “use the ‘n-word’” in a plan that will obliterate the UK’s commitment to free speech and Western values.
The comments came as Jihadi protesters broke Corona and social distancing regulations to gather outside a school in which a Religious Education teacher mocked the Prophet, Mohammed.
A BARRISTER cancelled by the Woke left has hit back at a suggestion that Brits could be jailed for offending Muslims.
Jon Holbrook was forced out of his chambers after a tweet, and the legal bigwig has told Politicalite that suggestions Brits could go to jail for offending Muslims is shocking.
Holbrook who is now representing UKIP as its Free Speech Spokesman told Politicalite: “The right to speak freely must include the right to say things which offend others and if that right is met with a criminal sanction then we cease to be a free country.”
“The idea that Brits could go to jail for offending Muslims is shocking. Our liberal democracy is premised on free speech, no ifs and no buts.
“The country is suffering from too many people with thin skins who are making it difficult for the majority to speak their mind.” added Holbrook.
