UK dad attacked for opposing 12-year-old daughter’s assignment to write letter about converting to Islam

A stepfather who slammed his daughter’s school for making her write a letter about “converting to Islam” has been called a “racist bigot” and is terrified of violent repercussions.
Mark McLachlan, 43, complained to Kepier School in Houghton-le-Spring, Sunderland when he found the homework task in his stepdaughter’s planner.
He refused to let her finish the “letter to my family about converting to Islam”, claiming it was “brainwashing” her about the religion and did not see what it would achieve.
But since posting about it on social media he says he has received a lot of abuse.
“My wife and I are terrified of the repercussions. Any time anybody says anything negative about Islam they are torn to shreds.”
“I’ve been called a racist and a bigot, but I’m just terrified for my kids and for the way this country is going.”
“In 50 years time I can see Britain becoming an Islamic state and my kids and grandkids are still going to be alive – I don’t want them wearing a niqab”, he told MailOnline.
Mr McLachlan, who has been with the 12-year-old’s mom for five years, said he was particularly outraged by the task because he thinks she is being given a “false representation of Islam”.
He added: ‘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.
“I’ve done it and the stuff that comes up is horrific.”
“My stepdaughter is coming home talking about the Prophet Muhammad and halal meat saying Islam is the religion of peace.”
“But if she watched the news and knew about all the atrocities Islam has caused all over the world, she would know it isn’t the religion of peace at all.”
