Dublin cleric concerned over Islamic teaching
A Dublin-based Muslim cleric has said that he is concerned that Muslim children may be taught incorrect teachings of Islam and may develop a distorted version of Islam at weekend Islamic education classes held throughout Ireland.
Shaykh Umar al-Qadri, who is head imam at Blanchardstown mosque, told RTÉ's News At One that teachers attending the weekend classes are often unqualified in Islamic studies, they have no training and there is no regulation or transparency of the syllabus.
He said if children are being taught incorrect versions of Islam, it may leave them vulnerable to radicalisation.
