Teacher calls police on 6yo Muslim boy

Teacher reports minor Muslim boy with Down's Syndrome to police for terrorism in Houston

A substitute teacher in Pearland, Texas, called the police this week because she feared a 6-year-old Muslim boy with Down syndrome was a terrorist.

'It's not true, he doesn't speak at all'.

Despite her accusations, the child's dad, Maher Suleiman, said that the boy has the mental capacity of a 1-year-old who needs assistance constantly and who is incapable of talking.

"She claimed he was a terrorist", he added. This is so stupid, this is discrimination actually.

Maher can't help but be disgusted by the allegations against his son being a terrorist that the substitute teacher at CJ Harris Elementary School made. "It's not implied discrimination, it's a hundred per cent discrimination", the father said. "A 6-year-old kid".

He left the game with his first win with the 49ers thanks to a Robbie Gould game-winning field goal in the closing seconds. The Bears' all-time leader in points and field goals made, he shouted at their sideline after he nailed the victor .

The police later confirmed an investigation did take place but it was found there was no need for them to be involved.

"The last three or four weeks have been the hardest of my life", he said. That phone call prompted both a police investigation as well as an investigation by Child Protective Services. "Even my wife, kids were crying.a few days ago and I told them, 'Okay, everything is fine'".

The story also ignited criticism from all across social media, especially on Twitter, where some users are saying the teacher's alleged report is a result of increasing Islamophobia.

Child Protective Services is still said to be investigating the family.

A spokesperson for the school said that it couldn't provide any personal information on the issue, as it violated privacy law.
