A furious stepfather is being slandered as a racist and Islamophobic bigot for refusing to allow his Christian stepdaughter to complete the assignment. Mark McLachlan, 43 (right), from Houghton-le-Spring, near Sunderland, has slammed the decision by the Kepier School to order pupils to pen the note.
Daily Mail (h/t Marvin W) He has refused to let his stepdaughter, who he has asked not to be named, complete the task after failing to see what the letter would accomplish. Mr McLachlan said.
‘I just don’t see why they should ask a child to write a letter addressed to their family about converting to another religion. I really just don’t see what the letter will gain. ‘If they want children to learn about Islam, then go teach them all about it and its history.
‘What I don’t want is a school asking my stepdaughter to look into reasons for converting to another religion. ‘Like every parent, it is our decision on how we raise them and once they are old enough to make decision, then it is there choice.’

Unsatisfied with his initial reply, McLachlan penned an even longer and bolder letter on Facebook, citing many verses from the Quran, which commands Muslims to “kill the unbelievers wherever you find them.”
McLachlan stuck to his guns, assuring the school that his child will not be participating in any assignment or activity promoting Islam.
