The Knucklehead of the Day award

Goes to Osama Saeed. Mr Saeed a resident of Glasgow Scotland wants St Albert's Primary a Catholic School in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow to be based on a Muslim faith. The reason? Ninety percent of the students are Muslim.

This is one of those your head knucklehead awards. A catholic school is supposed to convert to Islam? If its a private school(and I'm assuming it is) and the parents made the choice to send the children there, they aren't in a position to tell the school what faith its supposed to be. If you want Islam taught, create your own school. If the situation was reversed, I'd tell Catholic students the same. Mr. Saeed suggests doing this would "To move towards this would be a fantastic example of good faith". No it would be a betrayal of the religion of the school.

For proposing one of the wackier ideas for a still young 2006, Osama Saeed is today's Knucklehead of the Day.

AN ISLAMIC campaign group has called for a Catholic primary school to be based on the Muslim faith.

The Campaign for Muslim Schools said 90 per cent of pupils at St Albert's Primary, in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow, are Muslim, yet children are having to take part in Catholic rituals like saying the Lord's Prayer and attending mass.

Osama Saeed, co-ordinator of the alliance of Glasgow's main mosques and Muslim organisations, said he could see no reason why the main faith of the school should not change.

He said: "Clearly the parents of that area find a faith school, even if it is of another denomination, preferable to a secular one. But surely it should be possible for them to have one that is relevant to their own faith.

"To move towards this would be a fantastic example of good faith - in more ways than one - on the part of the Church."
