Mistakened Teachers Questioned 8-YO for ISIS Supporting T-Shirt

Mistakened Teachers Questioned 8-YO for ISIS Supporting T-Shirt

A SCHOOLBOY has been questioned under anti-terror legislation after teachers confused his t-shirt for ISIS propaganda.

The eight-year-old was investigated after teachers became suspicious of his t-shirt, which read: “I want to be like Abu Bakr al-Siddique.”

But worried staff at the East London school mixed up al-Siddique – a major Islamic figure comparable to St Peter in the Christian faith – to evil ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.

And it is also claimed the boy told his friends his father had a “secret job”.

The pupil was referred to social services under the Government’s anti-terror Prevent strategy, where teachers report suspicious activity suggesting radicalisation.

But it was later discovered his father’s “secret job” was selling nail polish.

The boy branded it “secret” because he reportedly sold the products on eBay and did not publicise it.

Now it is reported the youngster is so traumatised by his run-in with social services he is reluctant to go back to the school.

The mum of the eight-year-old said social services had marked down the incident as a “caution” against her son – despite there being no evidence he had been radicalised.

 Yasmine Ahmed, director of Rights Watch UK, said: “It is time for the Government to acknowledge that the Prevent strategy is infringing the human rights of children across the UK.

“Children should be encouraged to learn and grow, to express their views and have them challenged, and to value the fundamental rights that allow them to do so, Daily Mail reported.
