Let's not turn our schools into mosques
by Farzana Hassan
Mississauga, now Canada's sixth-largest city, is home to one of the largest concentrations of Muslim students in Canada.
This is why in seventeen out of Mississauga's nineteen high schools, Muslim students associations are demanding autonomy on holding congregational prayers on Friday and on choosing who delivers the sermons.
The Peel Board of Education has recently ruled that only six approved sermons could be delivered during Friday prayers, ones that are consistent with the board's values of honesty, cooperation and inclusion. But the students now wish to regain control.
