Media Statement on use of Caricatures of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in Batley Grammar School

25 March 2021

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community UK expresses its grave concerns at the use of caricatures of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) in a religious studies lesson in Batley Grammar School.

It is completely unacceptable that such offensive material was used in the school and this is deeply distressing.

We acknowledge the fact that the school has since apologised for the incident and is taking steps to ensure that such issues do not arise in future.

It is vital that schools work to build a society that is based on mutual respect and understanding.
