Atlanta: The father of a Muslim middle school student says a teacher asked his daughter if she was carrying a bomb in her backpack.
Abdirizak Aden said the teacher at Shiloh Middle School in Georgia, stopped his 13-year-old daughter, who wears a hijab, and asked if she had a bomb.
Aden told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/1mfBlHj ) that both he and his daughter were greatly upset by the comment.
Sloan Roach, a Gwinnett County Public Schools spokeswoman, said the teacher’s comment was inappropriate and the school’s principal has apologised to the family.
She said the comment came as the teacher was telling students to put away their backpacks and school officials don’t believe it was made with ill intent.
