Texas teacher calls police on 6 year old Muslim boy with Down syndrome alleging he's A FREAKING TERRORIST. People have lost their minds. I am done. I can't. Infuriating. Our poor babies. We love you and we have to figure out how to protect you.
PEARLAND, Texas (FOX 26) - “Mohammad was born with Down Syndrome chromosome 21,” said his father Maher Suleiman.
The 6-year-old boy also has intellectual difficulties and doesn’t speak.
“He needs care all the time,” said Maher.
Mohammad attends C. J. Harris Elementary School in Pearland.
Maher said his son’s regular teacher left and a substitute teacher called Pearland police about his son. He also said the school told the officer that Mohammad could talk.
“It’s not true, he doesn’t speak at all,” said Maher. He also said the substitute teacher told police the boy would reportedly say "Allah" and "boom."
“She claimed he was a terrorist,” said Maher. “This is so stupid, it’s discrimination. Actually, it’s not implied discrimination, it’s actual discrimination.”
The teacher’s reported accusation against the special needs child prompted a police investigation and one by Child Protective Services as well.
