"Leave that which makes you doubt, for that which does not make you doubt, for truth is peace of mind and falsehood is doubt." (At-Tirmidhi)
The article published in the Mail on Sunday on 20 April ("Private school chief linked to Islam Trojan Horse plot says: Stone all adulterers to death") is grossly misleading, distorting as it does facts about, and the views of, Ibrahim Hewitt, the Chairman of Trustees of Al-Aqsa School in Leicester.~From the headline to the end, it seeks to paint a picture of a homophobic religious fanatic who is trying to control state schools and is a danger to the pupils entrusted to Al-Aqsa by their parents.
Founded in 1998, Al-Aqsa is a full-time, non-selective school for children aged 3 – 13 (and planning to go to 16 years old, insha’Allah). We offer a broad and balanced holistic curriculum that integrates Islamic perspectives throughout all academic subject areas, with a focus on the Qur'an and character development. Our curriculum places an emphasis on personalised learning. Pupils of all ages are challenged to do their personal best and guided to become independent, creative learners.
