The 29-year-old teacher, whose identity has not been made public due to threats, has been suspended after the incident he caused. His father criticized the school for “throwing his son under the bus” as if to “throw his son under the bus.”

The teacher had shown the students a satire cartoon from a French magazine; Charlie Hebdo, about the Prophet Muhammad in the Religious Education class at Batley Grammar School in West Yorkshire, some time ago.
His actions sparked a wave of protests at school gates on Thursday last week. One demonstrator claimed the use of the cartoons was deliberate, threatening and provocative.
After the incident, principal Gary Kibble offered a sincere apology. “Use of pictures [kartun] in class is just not right, “he said.
But the teacher’s father claimed his son was “devastated” by the incident.
“My son kept crying and said it was over for him,” she told Mail Online, Monday (29/3/2021).
