In accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code, Federal and
international instruments, the school board has a responsibility to accommodate
all students alike, including the students of faith communities, and cannot
impose on them anything that conflicts with their beliefs or contradicts their
religious teachings and values.
The Ministry of Education and TDSB’s ‘Human Sexuality’ Agenda
conflicts directly with our/my religion, promotes an unsafe environment that
puts our/my child(ren) at risk and undermines their morals and values.
We/I understood the so-called human sexuality agenda as a
convenient guise and institutional tool for the deliberate and conscious
promotion of homosexual, bisexual and morally corrupt lifestyles on our children
in the public schools. We/I affirm in the strong-est terms that such
peculiarities are not only offensive to our/my faith, but stand in direct
contradiction to our/my religious beliefs, values, and practices. We/I therefore
request to be informed, in writing, prior to the introduction of any human
sexuality curriculum in class(es) that our/my child(ren) are in.
We/I further request that our/my child(ren) be withdrawn from
any program, activity, discussion, etc. at all times in all subject areas in the
school’s curriculum and support services, directly or indirectly in any shape or
form that contradict our/my faith, including but no limited to: literatures,
videotapes, plays, guest speakers, books, workshops, counselling, class
presentations, and discussions, non-academic posters and postings, referrals,
etc. and be provided with proper educational alternatives and adequate
As Muslim parent(s), we/I reiterate that all matters relating
to sex and human sexuality are exclusively determined by our religion and sound
health practices and requires our prior consultation by the public
Moreover, we/I also request, for review, the daily actual
materials being taught to our/my child(ren) in class as they pertain
specifically to the Ministry of Education and TDSB’s human sexuality program and
other issues sensitive to our religion.
I expect the school to respect and uphold our/my wishes and
rights as parent(s) and we/I further hold the school responsible for the safety
and well-being of our/my child(ren).
Hoping to hear from you soon.
