An educational watchdog in Britain finds reading material in some Islamic schools to be out of step with mainstream Muslim thinking.



The Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills (Ofsted) discovered a book in a school library entitled ‘Women Who Deserve to Go to Hell’, which said it was wrong for wives to show "ingratitude to their husband" or "have tall ambitions," according to the Times. It also detailed "mischievous" females who are a "trial for men." In its pages, pupils are told: "n the beginning of the 20th century, a movement for the freedom of women was launched with the basic objective of driving women towards aberrant ways."
