Teacher Withholds Water from British Students for Fear of Offending Muslims During Ramadan

Have you ever noticed that when Islamic belief and practice come into conflict with non-Muslim belief and practice, it's the latter that must step aside?

Daily Mail—An angry mother has accused a primary school of denying her child water on one of the hottest days of the year for fear of upsetting pupils observing Ramadan.

Kora Blagden, 32, claimed a teacher at her son Luke’s school refused to let the 10-year old drink from his water bottle because it was unfair to fasting classmates.

Many pupils at Charles Dickens Primary School, Portsmouth, Hampshire, are fasting during Ramadan, which means they refrain from taking food or water between sunrise and sunset for around 30 days, depending on the moon.

Mother-of-four Kora said: 'Just before bedtime me and my sons Luke, ten, and Alfie, eight, were talking about Ramadan as we had seen it on the news.

'Luke said to me he was told he wasn’t allowed to drink in class by his teacher.

'The reason being, a child who is fasting had a headache and the teacher said it would be unfair if the other children drank in front of the pupil.

'They normally have their bottles on their table but they were kept in a tray by the teacher.

'He went along with it but he was thirsty and didn’t want to offend the other children.

'Alfie said he was allowed to drink in the morning but not in the afternoon.

'Luke was dehydrated when he got home and drunk three glasses of water straight away.'

The teacher made the ruling on Thursday when temperatures soared to 28 degrees.

Ms Blagden confronted deputy head Lisa Florence before lessons began today and was given a verbal apology for the incident. (Continue Reading.)

The muslims always demand that other people respect their fast in Ramadhan, respect their belief etc etc. They always make the demand, but they never give similar treatments to others.
So why do we have to meet their demand?

Muslims for the fear to offend Muslims force Christians in Islamic countries

to learn Koran and Hadith ...

C'mon, if we do care about the Muslims, we will respect them. Jesus said we are to love our neighbors. Don't be such a whiner or a chicken, have an abundance mentality ...
