Former Islamic School Teacher Claims Principal Banned Girls From Running Over 'Lost Virginity or Fertility' Fears

Boy, those patriarchal Abrahamic religions -- like Islam -- sure do obsess over hymens. You've got artificial hymens, hymen restoration and views of secret defloration.

Then you've got an Islamic school in Australia banning female students from doing track and field lest they lose their virginity or be rendered infertile. Or, at least, that's what a former teacher said happened.

The teacher wrote a letter to the education ministers with the allegations against principal Omar Hallak.
"The principal holds beliefs that if females run excessively, they may 'lose their virginity'," the letter said.

"The principal believes that there is scientific evidence to indicate that if girls injure themselves, such as break their leg while playing soccer, it could render them infertile."
Apparently, this same principal was alleged to have told students that ISIS is merely a Western ploy and that Israel isn't a real country.
"He said there is no such thing as Israel and how dare you say Israel. He said Jews are horrible people."

After Mr Hallak left the room, Mr Somers said he told students Israel existed and was a member of the United Nations.

A number of former al-Taqwa teachers have raised concerns about the principal's views following revelations by Fairfax Media last week that he told students not to join Islamic State because it was a plot by Western countries.

He then went on to say that he believed IS was a scheme by Israel and the US.
Incidentally, this school gets over 15 million dollars annually in taxpayer money.

Back to the running, members of the school's cross country girls running group apparently sent the principal this letter.

Naturally, the principal now denies this ever happened at all.
Mr Hallak denied the allegations in a statement and said girls were "encouraged to participate in all activities" subject to parental consent.

"We do not believe that running excessively may cause female students to lose their virginity or that sporting injuries could render them infertile," the statement to The Age newspaper said.

The statement did not directly address claims that girls from the college's primary school had been blocked from taking part in some district events.

The secretary of the Islamic Council of Victoria, Ghaith Krayem, said he doubted the accusations were true.

"I thought this was a joke when I first read it, and I'm hoping it is a joke," he said.

"I doubt very much that any teacher or principal would say that; I think we all understand biology a little bit better than that.

"I haven't spoken to them, but I am going to give them a call and just touch base to see if there is any possibility of truth to that."
So it appears to be the principal's word against a group of female students who mysteriously had their running events canceled. I would love to know why, right?

The ministry of education will proceed with an investigation anyway.
