You couldn't make it up

-
You might want to take a firm hold of something solid here as The Audacious Epigone brings us the following from Scotland:

PUPILS and teachers have been told by an official body not to stare at Muslims for fear of causing offence.A document intended to educate against religious intolerance and sectarianism urges teachers to “make pupils aware of the various forms of Islamophobia, ie stares, verbal abuse, physical abuse”.

The document states: “Some Muslims may choose to wear clothing or display their faith in a way that makes them visible. For example, women may be wearing a headscarf, and men might be wearing a skullcap. Staring or looking is a form of discrimination as it makes the other person feel uncomfortable, or as though they are not normal.”

How come we haven't thought of that in Ireland?
