UK schoolchildren should take pledge of allegiance – Muslim group

Post by Didge on Sat Aug 13, 2016 7:20 am

Schoolchildren in the UK should be asked to make a regular US-style pledge of allegiance to the British flag, a persecuted Muslim group has suggested. More than 30,000 Ahmadi Muslims are gathering this weekend at a farm in rural Hampshire. It comes in the wake of the murder of the Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah, who was a member of the Ahmadi community. His attacker, Tanveer Ahmed from Bradford, was sentenced to 27 years imprisonment on Tuesday.

The three-day event opened with Friday Prayers followed by a symbolic Union Flag raising ceremony. Khalil Yousuf, a spokesman for the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, said: “Not only should we raise the flag, but everybody in the Muslim community should have to pledge loyalty to Britain in schools.
