Muslim-only schools will cause isolation

I write in response to Katherine Donnelly's article (Irish Independent, June 21) on Muslim parents' bid for a secondary school.

This is further evidence that Muslims in Ireland want to stay detached and do not want to integrate into Irish society.

Muslims born in Ireland and educated in such schools would firstly be Muslim, but never Irish.

It's amazing the anger directed against Catholic or Christian schools by the media -- yet very little to a religious group with no space at all for non (Muslim) believers.
