Christian classmates are outraged by a Muslim girl who filmed a Snapchat video, showing her drop the holy book into a drain.

 

A Muslim student of Altrincham Grammar School in Manchester, England has angered a lot of Christians by throwing a Bible into a drain.

The Sun UK reports that the student filmed herself on Snapchat in a ten-second video.

In the video, captioned “Good bye(ble)”, she is seen dropping the holy book through a grate. This video has been circulated on social media.

As anyone can imagine, a lot of Christian students were upset, and reported her to the school authorities, while parents have also complained about this obvious sign of religious intolerance.

The Muslim student has apologised to the school, and the authorities have let her off with a warning.

In an interview with The Sun UK, a school spokesperson said: “this was an isolated incident, we dealt with it privately and immediately. The child has apologised.”

However, this is not good enough for Christians, who feel she deserved more than just a warning.

According to a relative of another student, things would have been different if the case was the reverse.

“It is disgusting to think this young girl thinks it’s acceptable to insult a religion by defacing a Bible like this. If a Christian pupil did this to a Koran, there would be uproar.

Everyone in the school is talking about it and the parents are talking about it too. Pupils have been taking pictures of the video and been sharing it. It’s gone viral.

They found the book in school and were throwing it around and making a joke of it before it was thrown down the drain.

The girl posted another Snapchat after she was pulled up on it by the school saying ‘thanks a lot, everybody, you’ve got me in trouble’.

There’s an awkwardness at school now because she’s angry that she’s been in trouble and she’s trying to find out who told on her.

I think the school should have made a bigger response. She was let off with just a warning but I think it’s a lot more serious than that.”

I think the punishment does not fit the crime, because it looks like the Muslim girl does not see anything wrong with her provocative act.
