Why the ban?

Have your say

Reading The Star on July 4, Iwas left fuming about the talented Tapton School pupil who has had a painting of a mother breastfeeding, placed in the finance office instead of the prayer room in case it offended Muslims.

The person who made this decision,be it the head or any other teacher,should be utterly ashamed of themselves.

Breastfeeding is the most natural thing in the world. Remember whoever put this ban in, you were once a baby and more than likely breastfed.

I don’t see anything in your article about it upsetting Catholics, Methodists,or the Church of England.

Or was the person who made this decision too one-sided to include all the religions?

I am sure that Muslim women breastfeed their children, but once again society bows down so as not to offend.

Put the painting in the prayer room and see what reaction it gets, before making a judgement on who it may offend.
