South Africa: Muslim School Forced Out of Residential Neighborhood

The Cape Argus reports that a Muslim school is being charged with contempt of court for failure to move from a residential area, following attacks against teachers and pupils, vandalism of the school, hate mail and a pig’s head left at the entrance to the property. The mayor of Cape Town alleges that the school has broken “various laws and ordinances” by operating in a residential area for four years, but school trustees claim that nearly thirty other schools and business continue to operate in the area without being harassed. Police plan to relocate the school’s property to a suburb of Cape Town.
