Atheist Ireland invites Muslim schools in Ireland to be inclusive
Calls for Dr Ali Selim to join with it in campaigning for secular education system
The Atheist Ireland group has welcomed calls by Dr Ali Selim of the Islamic Cultural Centre in Dublin for a "revolution of inclusivity" in Irish schools and "an upheaval in Irish educational perspectives".
It also invited "the two publicly funded national schools under the patronage of the Islamic Foundation of Ireland to lead the way by including the children of atheists and secularists in their schools."
Dr Selim, who is also a lecturer at Trinity College Dublin and the Mater Dei Institute, made the calls in a new book to be published next Thursday.
