In Bolton, plenty of time to investigate complaints by…well, I never, Muslims again!
Parents complained to police and Bolton Council following the alleged incident at Sunning Hill Primary School, Daubhill, on Wednesday.
It is claimed a girl at the school was fidgeting with her headscarf and the teacher involved was heard to say: “If she was in my class I would chuck the scarf in the bin.”
The woman is alleged to have made the comments about the traditional female Muslim head dress in earshot of several pupils.Amazingly, she’s been suspended. This is referred to as…wait for it…a ‘neutral act’.
A council spokesman said: “We can confirm that a teacher at Sunning Hill Primary School has been suspended as a neutral act pending an investigation.”It’s Orwellian, isn’t it?
A police spokesman said: “An incident was reported to us on Wednesday evening at 10pm.
“It surrounds a comment made towards pupils at Sunning Hill Primary School.” It is understood police were taking statements from complainants last night.That’s our police for you – tough on comments, tough on the causes of comments!
