5-year-old Christian girl reportedly ‘distressed’ after government placed her with Islamic families

3 min read

According to a report from the U.K.’s Sunday Times, British social services placed a 5-year-old Christian girl into foster care with Muslim families who reportedly took away her Christian cross necklace and encouraged her to learn Arabic.

The child has spent the last six months in the care of two separate Muslim families, the report stated.

The allegations

The child welfare reports obtained by the Times reported that the young girl’s family is worried for the child’s well-being after hearing concerning allegations from the child.

The child reportedly told her biological mother during their periods of contact that Judeo-Christian holidays such as Easter and Christmas are “stupid.”

On another occurrence, the child was reportedly not allowed to eat one of her favorite meals, which was sent home with the girl to her foster home — a meal containing bacon. Pig products are considered “unclean” by those of Islamic faith.

Additionally, the Muslim foster carer reportedly removed the child’s Christian cross necklace.

According to a friend of the child’s biological family, the young girl, with regard to her placement in a Muslim home, feels “trapped in a world where everything feels foreign and unfamiliar. “

“This is a five-year-old white girl,” the family friend told the newspaper. “She was born in this country, speaks English as her first language, loves football, holds a British passport and was christened in a church.”
