Blackburn Muslim Schools Trust in TV documentary controversy
Blackburn's Muslim Tauheedul Schools Trust was this weekend braced for controversy over a TV documentary claiming staff members at its Olive Primary branded 'clapping and whistling' as 'Satanic'.
Channel Four's flagship 'Dispatches' programme sent an undercover reporter to the school and is understood to have footage of individuals in the staff room commenting on what should be taught in an Islamic environment.
When Dispatches contacted the Tauheedul Trust with a number of allegations, it immediately contacted the Department for Education about the possible contents of the documentary and invited it to inspect any aspect of its 'policies or practice'.
