British man called racist and bigot for refusing to let daughter write letter about ‘converting to Islam’ at school

Voice of Europe: Stepfather’s 12-year-old daughter asked to write a letter about becoming a Muslim. When he complained, he was called racist and bigot.

‘In 50 years time I can see Britain becoming an Islamic state and my children and grandchildren are still going to be alive – I don’t want them wearing a niqab.’ Since the 43-year-old Mr. McLachlan posted about the assignment on social media, he has received a lot of abuse.

He described: ‘She was told to google ‘Why should I convert to Islam’, but if she had researched both sides and googled ‘Why shouldn’t I convert to Islam’ she wouldn’t have been able to sleep.
