The Islamification of Britain (part 756)

“The Islamification of Britain continues apace. Word reaches me of a Smile With The Prophet initiative being run by the NHS in Bradford. According to the local primary care trust: ‘Using a specially developed syllabus, mosque leaders and teachers help to spread the word about oral health, encouraging youngsters to brush their teeth daily through the teachings of the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) and Islam.’

“Is there an equivalent programme tailored to the individual oral hygiene challenges faced by Anglicans, Catholics, Hindus, Sikhs or Seventh Day Adventists? … Still, anything which keeps children out of the dentist’s chair has to be welcome, though I can’t see how the oral hygiene needs of Muslim children are any different from those of another faith. Mind you, it can’t be easy brushing your teeth in a burqa.”
