Watch: Anger after video shows Dutch school children taught Islamic prayer
A video of children in the Netherlands being taught how to pray in a mosque went viral after parents furiously demanded changes to the curriculum
A video of children in the Netherlands being taught how to pray in a mosque went viral after parents furiously demanded changes to the curriculum that teaches praying.
In the video, an imam is seen explaining how Muslims pray.
The children, most of whom are thought to be Christians, can be seen preforming the traditional prayer stance.
Harm Beertema, 64, an MP for Geert Wilders' far-right Freedom Party, urged parents: 'Refuse to allow your child to participate in such "away-with-our-culture" excursions. You are deciding, not the school.'
On social media hundreds of parents reacted, some sharing their own stories of 'politically correct school curriculum.'
