Group Asks School To Discipline Teacher Over Anti-Islam Handouts

National Islamic advocates are asking Wake County schools officials to discipline a teacher they say allowed anti-Islam literature to be distributed in his class.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations wrote Superintendent Del Burns asking that the incident at Enloe High School be investigated.

According to the council, a representative from the Raleigh-based Kamil International Ministries Organization spoke to a ninth-grade world history class. The council says the representative distributed literature about Jesus and a handout titled "Do Not Marry a Muslim Man."

Council spokesman Ibrahim Hooper says the father of a Muslim student reported the incident.

A school district spokeswoman says Burns hasn't yet received the letter, but an investigation is under way and officials will take appropriate disciplinary action.
