sample letter to a school principal
Please send this letter,
making necessary adjustments, to your child's school principal. May Allah keep
all children safe and healthy so they can make this world a better place.
I am writing to you out
of concern for the safety of all of the children in our school. As a parent
I am deeply shocked and saddend by the recent terrorist action in New York and
Washington and I am worried about possible misunderstandings about the faith
of Islam and the American Muslim community. Sadly, there have been many reported
incidents of bullying and harrassment of Muslim students of different ethnic
backgrounds in schools across the country.
Islam is a religion of peace
and Muslims do not support violent actions. Please help your students to talk
about the media images and discussions they are seeing and hearing so that they
will not be afraid of, or angry with innocent Muslim, Middle Eastern or South
Asian students at school.
It is also important to
note hundreds of innocent Muslim American citizens are feared dead as well,
in these horrendous acts of violence.
If I can be of any assistance
with this important anti-racism education please let me know. You can contact
me at (give your daytime phone number).
