Campaign under way in Dudley to battle EDL message against Islam in schools

A MASSIVE campaign is under way across Dudley to counter a right-wing group’s message against school lessons about Islam.
The campaign by the Halesowen-based Ahmadiyya Muslim Association has been launched amid fears that parents will take up the call from the English Defence League (EDL) which could divide communities.
The EDL posted an inflammatory letter on its West Midlands Division Facebook page encouraging parents to send a copy to their children’s schools demanding they be removed from lessons which teach “anything about Islam”.
The rambling 700-word message claimed Islam does not promote understanding, tolerance and morality and promotes spousal abuse and violence.
It has been widely condemned but the Muslim group remains fearful that its impact could be damaging.
The Ahmadiyya association’s local president Dr Masood Majoka said its counter leaflet was a “wake-up call to remove any misconceptions about Islam” contained in the EDL’s campaign urging parents boycott their children from learning anything about Islam.
