Muslim schools in UK

I’d like to tell about the article Muslim schools in UK.

Let's read about Muslim schools in UK

The Muslim Council of Britian's secretary-general, Iqbal Sacranie, said that with only " 3% of Muslim children attending Muslim faith schools, it is astonishing that they have been singled out in this way". " We consider it highly irresponsible to suggest that the growth of Muslim faith schools poses a threat to 'our coherence as a nation'."

Libraries

Why do we need libraries?

Libraries is needed by all people in the world.

The first libraries consisted of archives of the earliest form of writing - the clay tablets in cuneiform script discovered in Sumer, some dating back to 2600 BC. These written archives mark the end of prehistory and the start of history. The earliest discovered private archives were kept at Ugarit. There is also evidence of libraries at Nippur about 1900 BC and at Nineveh about 700 BC showing a library classification system. Private or personal libraries made up of written books (as opposed to the state or institutional records kept in archives) appeared in classical Greece in the 5th century BC. In the 6th century, at the very close of the Classical period, the great libraries of the Mediterranean world remained those of Constantinople and Alexandria.
