MINNESOTA STUDENTS FORCED TO SING MUSLIM SONG ‘ALLAHU AKBAR’ DURING CHRISTMAS CONCERT

At Thursday night’s concert at Blaine High School, one of the songs students will be singing includes Arabic words, including the phrase “Allahu Akbar,” which means “God is great.” Christian and Jewish songs will be performed as well, but the Ramadan song is getting all the attention.

It started with a post on Facebook. A parent of a ninth-grade Blaine choir student posted the lyrics to the song the choir has been practicing. When others learned students would be singing the song on Thursday, the comments took a turn.

ONE PERSON POSTED, “NO CHILD SHOULD BE FORCED TO SING A SONG ABOUT THE MUSLIMS AND THE RELIGION OF HATRED.”

Another parent, who didn’t want to be identified, told WCCO phone that considering the recent events in Paris and San Bernardino, singing a song about Allah would be “insensitive.”
