BPM Media Muslim parents are protesting against a same-sex education programme which they brand ‘brainwashing’
They oppose a programme to educate kids on same-sex relationships at Parkfield Community School, in Birmingham.
The No Outsiders programme was started by the school’s gay assistant head teacher Andrew Moffat.
But parents at the school – who are predominantly Muslim – claim it is “sexualising” the children at the primary-age academy.
Speakers at the protest insisted they are not homophobic but said they do not believe homosexuality should be tutored in the classroom.
There were chants of “shame” from the crowds, with signs stating “Our Children, Our Choice”, “Let Kids Be Kids” and “Say No To Sexualisation of Children”.
Dad Abdul Ma, 46, said: “This is a brainwash. We bring our children here so they can later work as a solicitor or a teacher, not to be taught about being gay or a lesbian.”
Razina Mahmood, 40, with two children at the school, said: “This is nothing but indoctrination of our children.

“You are using our children as an experiment.”
Ofsted’s chief inspector Amanda Spielman has welcomed the scheme.
She said it was vital children knew about families that have two mothers or two fathers.
