Shahid Akmal, who condones aspects of Sharia Law, told an undercover Mirror reporter that “white women have the least amount of morals”
One of the ringleaders of the Islamist plot to take over British schools is exposed today as a sexist, racist bigot.
School chief Shahid Akmal told an undercover Mirror reporter that “white women have the least amount of morals”, white children were “lazy” and that British people have “colonial blood”.
Akmal claimed that women were “emotionally weaker” than men and that their role was to look after children and the home.
He defended jailing or exiling gays and adulterers under Sharia Law as a “moral position to hold”.
Until last week, Akmal was the chairman of governors at Nansen Primary School in Birmingham, where music was banned and inspectors found pupils were not sufficiently protected from radicalisation.
The hardliner revealed he has plans to set up a series of after-school tuition centres to instil “our morals and our values and our principles” in impressionable youngsters.
Over a series of meetings with our reporter, Akmal made a string of extraordinary statements and defended Brits fighting in Syria and Iraq as “freedom fighters”.
In a defiant attack, Akmal claimed the Government wanted to keep Muslims “suppressed” so they are easier to control.
Our exposé comes after a leaked official report found there was a “sustained, coordinated agenda to impose segregationist attitudes and practices of a hardline, politicised strain of Sunni Islam” on children at the Trojan Horse schools.
Former counter-terrorism police officer Peter Clarke will raise “concerns about their vulnerability to radicalisation in future”.
A scathing assessment from schools inspectors Ofsted found that Akmal’s board of governors were “overly controlling”.
Music had been removed from the timetable and children were “not prepared for life in modern Britain”.
Posing as a wealthy Asian businessman, our reporter approached Akmal’s training firm Exquisitus as a potential client.
Over a number of coaching sessions in London hotels, Akmal revealed his deep hostility to the modern British way of life.
He revealed: “My grandfather refused to let us speak English at home.
“He said, ‘You leave English at the door. When you come inside you speak your own language’.
“He used to encourage us to dress in our national dress.
“He said this is your identity because no matter how white you become, how well you speak English, how well you dress, you will never become one of them.”
During his first meeting, Akmal ranted: “The colonial blood is very difficult to get rid of.
“The colonial blood they have within them, these white people, it’s very difficult to get rid of that very quickly.
“They still think they rule half the world.”
Asked if white children were lazy he said: “Exactly. Thank you very much. And they don’t want to accept that.”
He insisted: “I tell you, our women are much, much better consciously in the heart than any white women.
“White women have the least amount of morals.”
Over a number of meetings he claimed that Britain had a “false notion” of sexual equality where “equality means sameness”.
He said: “Women have a role in society that’s equal but different to the role of men.
“A man can be the father and the leader of the family, a woman can also be the leader of the family in the house.
“So she looks after the house, looks after the children, and she is to be respected for what she does and not treated as a slave.”
He argued that girls should be taught skills such as cooking and sewing while boys should be taught trades like construction and mechanics.
Akmal attacked women who became “high flying” politicians: “She has to sacrifice her family, she has to sacrifice her children, she has to sacrifice her husband, all in the name of equality.
“And there are so many marriages that have broken up because of this.”
He admitted that women can be as intelligent as men but added “emotionally women are much weaker… they are not on the same level”.
Akmal dismissed a boycott of businesses owned by the Sultan of Brunei over the death penalty in the Middle Eastern country for homosexuality and adultery.
He said: “The thing is, it’s his right and it’s his country, so why shouldn’t he?”
Akmal said that homosexuals, adulterers and “fornicators” who have sex outside marriage should be exiled from their community.
“The Koranic concept is that anyone who causes disruption in the community, even if you put them in prison, from prison they can continue to cause disruption as well,” he said.
“So the best thing to do is to actually exile them so that the community can remain solid and united. It’s a moral position to hold.”
He attacked what he called “man-made” British law as “very confusing” and defended laws “given by God” as “fair even though you may not understand it”.
Akmal appeared to defend British Muslims joining rebels in Syria and Iraq, despite official warnings of a terrorism threat when they return to the UK.
He said: “The fact that he has gone there to fight, they say that he is supporting terrorists. Because they don’t believe in the freedom fight.”
The alleged Trojan Horse plotters had been attacked for “wanting the best for our children”, claimed Akmal.
He said: “They basically don’t want the children to do any better because they will demand education, they will demand better qualifications, they will want to go to Oxford and Cambridge and that’s a white only place.
“Very few non-whites go there. They want to keep us suppressed.
“It’s easier to control. If you get education you get a mind. When you get a mind, you ask questions. They don’t like that.”
Birmingham MP Khalid Mahmood said: “This investigation backs what I have been trying to fight against.”
The hardline ideology which put poison in our classrooms
The Trojan Horse scandal was revealed last year after an anonymous letter claimed a clique of hardline Muslims was trying to seize control of schools in Birmingham.
A number of alleged ringleaders have been identified, including Tahir Alam, of the Park View Educational Trust, and Shahid Akmal, the former chairman of governors at Nansen primary school.
Nansen was one of five schools put into special measures following Ofsted inspections.
Ofsted said: “Governance, safety, cultural development, equal opportunities and the teaching of religious education are all inadequate.”
It said the school did not prepare children for life in modern Britain and pupils had limited knowledge of religious beliefs other than Islam.
Governors were “overly controlling in the day-to-day running of the school”.
The report warned: “The governing body and senior leaders do not adopt effective strategies that develop pupils’ awareness of the risks of extremism.
“Leaders do not sufficiently develop pupils’ understanding of the different customs, traditions or religions in Britain.
“Pupils do not get a broad education. The governing body has removed some subjects, such as music, from the timetable.”
Last week, a leaked draft report by former counter-terrorism police chief Peter Clarke found evidence of a hardline Muslim agenda at the schools.
It stated: “The ideology revealed by this investigation is an intolerant and politicised form of extreme social conservatism that ultimately seeks to control all Muslims.”
But a separate report by former head teacher Ian Kershaw for Birmingham city council found “no evidence of a conspiracy to promote an anti-British agenda, violent extremism or radicalisation in schools”.
Last week, trustees at the Park View Educational Trust resigned in protest at what they called a “co-ordinated and vicious” offensive led by the former Education Secretary Michael Gove.
Alam, Akmal and the schools involved have all denied any wrongdoing.
