Regulator contacts charity over blasphemy protests at Yorkshire school


The Charity Commission has raised regulatory concerns with trustees whose charity is at the heart of a blasphemy row.


Purpose of Life, which works in Yorkshire and overseas, released a letter yesterday naming a local teacher In Batley, Yorkshire, accused of showing a picture of the Prophet Mohammed during a lesson.


The letter, signed by the charity’s founder, called the teacher a “terrorist” and “sadist”.


Police were called to a subsequent protest outside the school, and government ministers have called on parents to end their demonstrations.


The school has apologised for the incident and suspended the teacher, who is now reportedly receiving police protection.
