An education authority is investigating claims that two school pupils were punished for refusing to kneel down and pray to Allah during a religious education lesson.

Parents complained after the boys, Year 7 pupils at Alsager High School in Cheshire, were given detention for being "disrespectful" to the prophet, the Congleton Chronicle reported.

Parent Sharon Luinen told the paper: "This isn't right, it's taking things too far.

"I understand that they have to learn about other religions, I can live with that, but it is taking it a step too far to be punished because they wouldn't join in Muslim prayer. Making them pray to Allah, who isn't who they worship, is wrong and what got me is that they were told they were being disrespectful."

The school is believed to have received complaints from five sets of parents since the alleged incident on Tuesday.

Another parent, Karen Williams, said: "I am absolutely furious my daughter was made to take part in it and I don't find it acceptable. I haven't got a problem with them teaching my child other religions and a small amount of information doesn't do any harm.

They shouldn't had punished them like that. Forcing someone to say prayers to a religion they are not part of is wrong, well in terms of religious beliefs that is -_-

They shouldnt be forced to do it. No matter what their religion is, they should never be forced into anything...

Ehh, that's pathetic, why should 11/12 year olds be made to pray to a god they don't worship?
I'd refuse too, but thankfully, I didn't choose R.E as an option, so I don't have it anymore.

Plain stupidity. Having no respect for what others believe is just fucking dumb.
