Ending abuse in Madrasas (Islamic schools)

If you are a British Citizen or Resident, please take a few moments to sign my epetition calling for Parliament to discuss the ending of physical abuse against children in numerous madrasas up and down this country.

"Responsible department: Department for Education
The use of corporal punishment in the British madrasa (islamic school) system needs to end now. Due to a loop-hole in English law, currently there is a clause that still permits corporal punishment in educational establishments that have children for less than 12.5 hours a week. Madrasas are often run by Mosques (in the style of 'Sunday Schools) as a means to educate their young people about their religion and the Qu'ran. While many madrasas function respectfully in relation to their young people, there are frequent cases of physical abuse in madrasas throughout England. This needs to end now."

To sign the epetition, click on the following link and follow the instructions:

Thank you in advance for your time and support.
