Starting with that the school titled it "Conversance with cultural traditions of America" (WHAT?) and didn't inform parents that our children will visit a mosque. Moreover they made non-Muslim pupils to get down on their hands and knees and pray to Allah!
I would like to know in what area you live where this is true at all. I do not believe any school anywhere in this country would be planning any field trip, and not totally informing parents. I have never had any of my kids ever go on a field trip that a permission form had to be signed, giving the destination and all the particulars, well in advance. IN SHORT I DO NOT BELIEVE YOU!
I do not believe at all students were made to get down
on their knees and pray to Allah. Your claim seems totally ridiculous. They can't even have a prayer in the classroom anymore, nor celebrate religious days, and why Easter and Christmas breaks, have been renamed Holiday and Spring break.
Many years ago my son went to a Mosque for a school report, along with his mother, and found nothing but total respect, and was not forced whatsoever to do anything. The person was very nice, told my son all about the Mosque, the only thing they required, as I recall, was they take off their shoes.
