I live in a 'terrorist house': police speak to Muslim boy, 10, over spelling error.

Teachers report primary school student to authorities after he mistakenly writes about ‘terrorist house’ instead of ‘terraced house’ in class

A simple spelling mistake has led to a 10-year-old Muslim boy being interviewed by British police over suspected links to terrorism.

The boy, who lives in Accrington in Lancashire, wrote in his primary school English class that he lived in a “terrorist house”. He meant to write “terraced house”.

His teachers did not realise it was a spelling error and instead reported the boy to the police, in accordance with the 2015 Counter-Terrorism and Security Act, which states that teachers are obliged to alert the authorities to any suspected terrorist behaviour.

As a result, the child was interviewed on 7 December by police and the authorities examined a laptop found at his family home.

His family has since demanded the school and police apologise, according to the BBC.

A cousin of the boy, who has not been named to protect his identity, said his relatives initially thought it was a joke, but that the boy had been traumatised by the experience.

“You can imagine it happening to a 30-year-old man, but not to a young child,” she told the BBC. “If the teacher had any concerns it should have been about his spelling.

“They shouldn’t be putting a child through this.

“He’s now scared of writing, using his imagination.”

The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015, which came into force in July 2015 as part of the government’s anti-radicalisation strategy, Prevent, places local authorities, prisons, NHS trusts and schools under a new statutory duty to prevent extremist radicalisation taking place within their walls.

Critics of the act argue it forces teachers to over-react, rather than using their common sense, for fear of breaking the law.

Miqdaad Versi, assistant secretary-general of the Muslim Council of Britain, the UK’s largest umbrella group for Islamic associations, said he was aware of dozens of similar cases taking place in schools around the country.

“There are huge concerns that individuals going about their daily life are being seen through the lens of security and are being seen as potential terrorists rather than students,” he said.

Lancashire police said in a statement the situation was handled by a PC and social services and that anti-terrorism police were not called in.

The school told the BBC it was unable to comment because it was investigating a complaint over the incident.

This is actually excellent news (hamd).

We need more news about their oppressive policies backfiring on them.

Abu Eesa Nimatullah.

Further to the story of the child who misspelled "terraced" as "terrorist" and was reported by his school under David Cameron's new counter-terrorism strategy, I want to tell you of another incident which occurred even closer to home.
This has not been reported to the media yet. The matter was eventually resolved after much stress, meetings and external involvement.

A 10 year old child whom I know very well - who has received excellent, well-rounded parenting and is a lovely little boy - was taunted by his classmates (in a normal public Primary school) that he was a terrorist. The boy didn't know what the word meant. His parents had protected their child from current affairs and such terms and news, and so he genuinely didn't know what they were talking about but it upset him and he reported that he was being bullied.

Then the same classmates asked him whether he was "part of Islamic State", to which the boy replied, "Yes I am Islamic." Upon that, the bullying intensified and some of those classmates went home and told their parents that the boy was part of Islamic State. Those parents then demanded a meeting with the Headteacher and the local educational authority where they expressed their anger and subsequently an investigation was launched where the parents were called in and local counter-terrorism support became involved.

After long interviews with the little boy and his parents, and much tears, it became obvious to all - including the parents who were totally unaware of what had been happening - that this child had misunderstood being asked about "Islamic State" (an entity he had not been exposed to at home because there is no TV news, internet access etc available to the boy) as "are you Islamic?" to which he proudly said yes. The school realised the mistake, took no further action and promised to explain to the parents of the other children what had exactly happened.
The End.

Except of course, this is just the beginning.
Now, we have a traumatised child who has lost his love for imaginative expression and creativity, will never trust others, and will not refer to his true identity or what he does in private for fear of bullying and police action. I've spoken to him first-hand. If this child falls into the wrong company, or is later exposed on the internet to criminals, the security services will now definitely be the last to know and understandably so. And even if he doesn't fall into extremism, as a young man growing up it has been proved to him that we don't live in a free democracy where people should feel confident about debating and discussing and challenging the norms of thinking in any of the various fields of life, but instead that we should toe a dictated line and avoid attention and future problems.

We also have traumatised parents who have never wanted their young children to be exposed to the horrors of the real world before they were grown up and mature but are now being forced to tell their children exactly what to say and not to say so as to not get themselves or their families into serious trouble.

This is how you not only burn bridges with a community, but you destroy them with a nuclear bomb. When I say that the Muslim community and indeed many from the wider community - who can clearly see what David Cameron has done to good, loyal, innocent folks in this country - despise the Prime Minister and his cronies who are pulling the strings behind such policies, then you will now realise just how much a threat to our national safety Cameron is.

I received permission to tell this story so that everyone is aware of what is happening with their children out there and that they take immediate measures.

Cameron can throw as many red herrings as he wants blaming the terrorist atrocities of ISIS on anything from the way Muslim women dress, to the levels of English amongst our grandmothers, to Muslims imagining some fantasy concept called Islamophobia and lying to everyone about being attacked, abused and victimised - he is only delaying the inevitable. He has to take a good look at himself and realise that he will never, EVER achieve success in his goals because he has made himself an enemy of the Muslims despite his occasional sweet words to the contrary.

David, the good people of this country judge you by your actions and not your sweet lies. Stop embarrassing yourself by stating every few days that "the vast majority of Muslims are hard-working, decent, peaceful blah blah blah" because not only do we not believe what you say, but neither do you. You had a chance to make a difference to the future security of this country, but you chose your desires over the truth.
May you be damned for this, always and forever.

Its also worth noting that the "Prevent Strategy" was initiated by the Tony Blair Government over a decade ago and one of the key advisors on this was Muslim Member of Parliament Shahid Malik.

This guy got elected by the Muslims in Dewsbury because he was going take a stand against Islamaphobia and the vilification of muslims soon as he got elected he was at the forefront in villifying Muslims and Muslim advocacy organisations accusing them of whinging and playing the victim and grievance card by complaining of Islamaphobia

Thankfully Muslims in Dewsbury had the commonsense to vote him out after one term.
