Parent’s in Georgetown, Indiana are outraged over a Sharia law worksheet their children received in their Middle School class.
One father compared the worksheet to putting a positive spin on Hitler and Nazi Germany. See excerpts of the worksheet below…
From The Blaze:
Parents are criticizing school administrators at Highland Hills Middle School in Georgetown, Indiana, after a school-issued worksheet intentionally put a positive spin on the militant — and oftentimes violent — idea of Sharia law.
School teachers handed the worksheet out to seventh-graders at the middle school, which depicts a 20-year-old woman named Ahlima who says she feels “very fortunate” to live under Sharia law, which historically oppresses women and members of the LGBT community and encourages violence against those who stray from the strict religious code.
TheBlaze obtained a copy of the worksheet in question from concerned parents in the district, and some of the worksheet’s contents openly defend polygamy, female subjugation, and Sharia law. In one passage, Ahlima says that she knows that Westerners who oppose polygamy are wrong:
The sheet explained that Ahlima will “soon become a man’s second wife,” as a result of a marriage arranged by her parents, an arrangement with which she professed to be happy:
The worksheet also defended Sharia law’s strict dress codes for women:
The worksheet also flatly denied that women are oppressed under Sharia law:
Ahlima concluded her reflections in the worksheet by claiming that she was “lucky” to live under Sharia law:
Many parents spoke out against the lesson during a county school board meeting, expressing outrage at the school’s decision. “The way that the worksheet is left would be like describing how effective Hitler was at nationalizing Germany and creating patriotism but leaving out that he slaughtered 6 million Jews,” said Dean Hohl, one of the parents in attendance, according to the Courier-Journal. “I’m just not okay with my daughter – or any child that age – leaving class with the understanding that anything about Sharia law is okay.”
I don’t know who arranged for this worksheet to be acceptable as a school assignment but this is nothing but propaganda! Islam is trying to bring Sharia law to America.
