Chatham mother sues school district for allegedly trying to convert her son to Islam

Allison Pries:

The video, according to the lawsuit, “seeks to convert viewers to Islam and is filled with the religious teachings of Islam, presented not as beliefs, but as facts.”

The lawsuit cites statements made in the video, including “Allah is the one God;” “The Quran is a perfect guide for humanity;” “Muslims created a tradition of unsurpassable splendor;” and concludes with “May God help us all find the true faith, Islam.”

The text slides are set to a musical version of the poem “Qaseedah Burdah,” which the lawsuit says, describes “Christians and Jews as ‘infidels’ and (praises) Muhammad in gruesome detail for slaughtering them.”
