"It was not my intention to say these things"

During a school visit from a fifth grade in a mosque in Malmö, the imam told that pigs are homosexuals and eat each other - now the rector has suspended all future visits to the mosque

When a fifth grade from the Bulltofta School visited the Ahmadiyya Movement's Mahmood Mosque last week, the Imam told the 11-year-old school students why Muslims do not eat pork.

The Imam explained, among other things, the ban on pork with the fact that pigs are homosexuals, and that pigs are eating their own children. It writes the Swedish newspaper Expressen on the basis of the Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan.

11-year-old girl responded

There was, however, an 11-year-old girl, herself a Muslim, who responded to the things that the Imam explained during the school visit:
So, I was very shocked and sad. Most Muslims do not have such rules. Islam is a good thing, but he said things should be such and such, and he was very angry, explains the 11-year-old girl to Sydsvenskan.
According to the Swedish newspaper Sydsvenskan, the fifth class had to spend time working on all the things the Imam had talked about.

This explains Rector Monica Germundsson:
"There were some good discussions. So something good came out of it all. But no. It was all too provocative to be okay, says Monica Germundsson, who has decided to stop all study visits to the Mahmood Mosque, because the Imam's explanations are in no way consistent with the school's values.

It was quite clear

Rector Monica Germundsson says that the fifth grade has also been on study visits in the Swedish church, in the synagogue and in another mosque.

"Here it was interesting and educational everywhere. But in the Mahmood mosque, it became quite clear, says rector Germundsson.

Imam Rizwan Ahmad Afzal, who came with the strange statements to the fifth graders, has also confirmed to Sydsvenskan that he was talking about homosexual pigs. He does not mean, however, that it was something he intended to say. It happened spontaneously when the teacher asked why Muslims do not eat pork.

"It was not my intention to say these things, but it came out, you can say without thinking about it," says Rizwan Ahmad Afzal.

Stand firm in his opinion

According to Sydsvenskan keeps the imam remains firm in his opinion, but he offers to visit the school to apologize if there are some children who have had it bad because of his response.

Rizwan Ahmad Afzal says that everything we eat affects our morale and our body.

Sydsvenskan contradicted the imam with this very direct question:

Do you become gay if you eat pork?
The imam replied,
Maybe you can. But I do not know exactly. I have not read about it, says Rizwan Ahmad Afzal.

  1. The Imam should not talk such things without having full knowledge about it and especially when he is talking with school children.
