The problem with the teaching of history in the UK according to Abdal Hakim Murad

Thought for the Day with Abdal Hakim Murad - Muslim Chaplain at the University of Cambridge - for whom I have a spot that is soft, yielding (and I like to think welcoming) ...

He would be my Archbishop of Canterbury if I were Tudor Monarch Henrietta VIII.  Abdal Hakim Murad complains about the disjointed teaching of history through which we derive our disjointed morality and our woeful lack of noble national traditions.  The standard fare of Hitler and Stalin is not enough, he says.

If I were absolute monarch Henrietta VIII, I would create a new religion of Indifferent Agnosticism AKA Anglican Islam.

I would also break off diplomatic relations with the US.

Would I take a number of husbands or civilly partner women (or a combination of both) and then cut off their heads?

Watch this space.
