Call for State schools to accommodate Islamic beliefs
A spokesman for the Muslim community in Ireland has called for radical change in the educational system to accommodate children with Islamic beliefs.
Dr Ali Selim, of the Islamic Cultural Centre in Dublin's Clonskeagh and a lecturer in the Mater Dei Institute and Trinity College, has called for "a revolution of inclusivity" in Irish schools and "an upheaval in Irish educational perspectives".
This was necessary to accommodate the needs of a society which is now "home to a variety of Christian denominations, as well as people of other faiths and of none", he says in his book Islam and Education in Ireland, to be published next week.
