school cab driver leaves children alone in car while he goes to pray in mosque
A TAXI firm is being investigated following claims a driver left a group of children alone in a car during a school run while he went to pray in a mosque.
A driver for taxi company Tiger Taxis, based in Clitheroe, has been accused of ‘negligence’ after a group of children, believed to be between 12 and 14, were left alone in one of the firm’s taxis while dropping them home from Coal Clough Academy, in Burnley after 1pm on Friday.
Tiger Taxis is contracted to provide transport for school children from the Swindon Street academy by Lancashire County Council.
The taxi driver is alleged to have gone to the mosque after he received a phone call from one of his friends who told him it was “time to go and pray” while the children were being driven home in the taxi.
The driver stopped his car near a mosque in Nelson and left the children in the car for 15 minutes, it has been claimed.
One of the children in the car, Paul Jackson Jr, was then 30 minutes late getting to his home in Kelbrook, Barnoldswick, his father said.
Paul Jackson, 44, who lives in Kelbrook, a 30-minute car journey away from the academy, said he was furious after he learnt his 13-year-old son was one of the children left alone in the vehicle.
He said: “It’s highly unacceptable and unsafe to leave children alone in a car.”….
The absurdity of this driver is one case among many of Islamic supremacism at the expense of innocent people in a pluralistic society. Uber Canada was slammed for letting drivers refuse service animals for religious reasons. Although the article shied away from identifying what religion, dogs are haram in Islam (Hadith 4:539-540). Muslim cab drivers have also refused to drive people home who were drinking, even though the person’s behavior was in order, and have refused to transport passengers who are carrying alcohol.
When one religion (Islam) imposes upon the rights of others, so-called “religious accommodation” crosses the line to unreasonable accommodation. Other examples include cases of pork products being banned in schools, punitive measures for criticizing Islam, Muslim demands to wear the niqab for voting, court testimony and driving; demands for the adhan in the UK (broadcast through loudspeakers three times a day in Arabic), demands for prayer time at work, demands for separate spaces for women in pools and community centers, demands for police to accommodate the veil and deliver special catering for Muslim women, etc.
Democratic societies endeavor, or should endeavor, to respect the rights of all citizens alike, as all citizens are equal under the law. However, weak Western leaders are terrified of Muslim Brotherhood-linked lobbies that claim “Islamophobia” and “racism” at every turn.
In the case of the cab driver abandoning children in order to pray while on the job, it will be difficult for these lobbies to charge “Islamophobia” if punitive measures are levied against the driver. However, Muslim rape gang activity was covered up in view of the religion of the molesters. UK Muslim MP Naz Shah retweeted for the victims to “shut up for the good of diversity.” So in today’s Britain, this driver could easily get off with no penalty.
