Insulting images of the Prophet of Muslims within the educational curricula in the areas controlled by “Ankara militants” in the countryside of Aleppo.
The distribution of new books for the “Islamic education” curriculum to first grade students in the northern countryside of Aleppo, which is under the control of the Turkish forces and their factions has sparked a huge wave of anger and resentment among the parents.
The sources reported that the book, which bore the name “The Prophet’s Biography” and was distributed to first graders by the “coalition government” contained images offensive to the Prophet “Muhammad” the Prophet of Muslims.
The sources added that the curriculum, which is supposed to address 6 years old talked about the Prophet’s marriage, childbearing and other topics that doesn’t fit the age of the children, in addition to containing cartoon images that came within the framework of the Prophet’s drawing and his embodiment, which angered the residents of the area.
According to the sources, a wave of widespread protests sparked by this step led to the families collecting copies of books and burning them, as an expression of their refusal to convert them into a curriculum taught by their children, amid calls to reveal the names of those responsible for developing the curricula and hold them accountable for what was mentioned in the book, and immediately withdraw it from circulation.
The sources also reported that the party that wrote the book, with its insults to the Prophet, is the Turkish Istishrafa Center for Studies and Research, which issued a statement acknowledging its responsibility for developing the book, and said that this was commissioned by the Turkish Ministry of Education, but he tried to justify the drawings saying that they didn’t reflect the Prophet.
Activists within the areas controlled by the militants of Turkey called on the people to go out in massive popular demonstrations tomorrow to denounce what was stated in the new curricula, and demand that the perpetrators be held accountable and punished immediately.
It’s noteworthy that the Turkish forces, since their control over the areas of northern Syria, have been trying to control all aspects of life, including education, and to impose Turkish culture and language on Syrian children in schools.
