An Australian school has adopted a policy allowing male Muslim students to refuse to shake hands with women.Well, that's helping them contribute to society. But wait! It's not the school's fault!
A spokesman told the newspaper: “The Department of Education requires its schools to recognise and respect the cultural, linguistic and religious backgrounds of all students, with the intent to promote an open and tolerant attitude towards a diverse Australian community."You idiot! This is not doing that, is it? Even a top Muslim cleric thinks you've gone too far!
Former Islamic Council of Victoria secretary Kuranda Seyit said the hadith "shouldn't apply in a school context".
“Students should be able to shake hands with the teacher or the principal, or receive a greeting from a visitor to the school," he told the paper.
“Some people take it too seriously.”And I'm beginning to wonder if they aren't the bigger enemy....
