Pehaps you are right; they are in the wrong place. The solution is simple - go to the right place i.e. where the parents came from. pakistan or banglasdesh or other islamic countries

> The state schools are exam factories producing children with A to C Grades. They do not educate children, >as a result, institutional racism, drug, crime, incivility, ant-social behaviour, binge drinking, high rate of >abortions and teen age pregnancies are common part of life in state schools. Muslim parents do not want >their children to be integrated into such barbarity.

The solution is crying out; instead of complaining to others about barbarity, go back to countries full of islamic virtue like Saudi Arabia or Iran or Pakistan. On the one hand muslims want to eat out of the social welfare in other countries even while accusing them of barbarity. Undertake a campaign in Muslim countries to stop the immigration of Muslims to non-Muslim countries

>Majority of Muslim children leave schools with low grades because state schools with monolingual >teachers are not capable to teach Standard English to bilingual children.

By 'monolingual' , you mean they teach In English; you are living in your own Islamic daydreams even while you want handouts and aid fron non-Muslims. Islam and Muslims get a patheitic image

>Bilingual Muslim children need state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers as role >models. They need to be well versed in Standard English to follow the National Curriculum and go for >higher studies and research to serve humanity. They need to be well versed in Arabic, Urdu and other >community languages to keep in touch with their cultural roots and enjoy the beauty of their literature and >poetry.

If you cannot integrate into a society where you have immigrated by your choice, no point in you living there or no point in the host society keeping you there. After all Muslims get millions of dollors from Muslim countries for building mosques and propogation. British Muslims even got £2,000,000 from saddam Hussein to build a mosque. Spend the money on mosques into teaching English. The host society has got no duty to Muslims to make sure they keep in touch with their 'cultural roots' . If you cannot integrate, instead of making silly demads , go to a place which you know better.
