MPs urged to hold inquiry after white Christian girl put into foster care with non-English speaking Muslim family

Jack Maidment, political correspondent
28 AUGUST 2017 • 8:43PM

MPs have been urged to launch an inquiry into the placement of foster children after a white Christian girl was reportedly put into the care of a non-English speaking Muslim family.

The child, aged five, who speaks English as her first language, has been looked after by two different Muslim households in the past six months.

The girl was reportedly told to remove her Christian crucifix necklace and was not allowed to eat carbonara because it contained bacon.

She was allegedly encouraged to learn Arabic in one household and was begging not to go back there because "they don't speak English", according to a confidential report from the local authority seen by the Times newspaper.

She is also said to have told her mother since the placement in Tower Hamlets, London, that "Christmas is stupid".

Neil Carmichael, the former Tory chairman of the Education Select Committee, was leading an inquiry into fostering but the work was cut short by the general election.

Mr Carmichael, who lost his seat on June 8, said the committee should restart the work and examine how children are placed with foster carers because of the issues raised by the case.

He said: “That is not the sort of thing that we want to be seeing happening I would have thought.

“I think it is really important that young children are made to feel at home, made to feel comfortable, made to feel a fully fledged member of the family that they are in.

“They must be the key tests.”

Mr Carmichael added: “I don’t think we are looking at wholesale reform but I do think that we need to be sure that across the whole country foster carers are given sufficient support and the allocation of children is given proper due care and attention.”

In one of the homes, the mother wore a niqab, while the in the other the mother wore a burka, both of which fully cover the face.

The child and her carers have not been identified.

Local authorities are supposed to consider religious, racial, cultural and linguistic background when making fostering decisions.

Tower Hamlets council have not said why the fostering decision was made.

A spokesman for the council said: “We are unable to comment on individual cases or those that are subject to court proceedings.

“Tower Hamlets Council’s fostering service provides a loving and stable home for hundreds of children every year, and in every case, we give absolute consideration to our children’s background and to their cultural identity.”

A Department for Education spokesman said a child’s background should be an “important consideration” for authorities.



Well, look at the bright side of this: At least she hasn't been "groomed" yet... :(

There have been some twists and turns in this story so far...

Mother of 'Christian' child in Islamic foster row was from Muslim family, court papers show

Robert Mendick, Chief Reporter

30 August 2017 • 7:34pm

The mother of the five-year-old ‘Christian’ girl who complained her daughter had been placed with Muslim foster carers was herself born into the Islamic faith.

Court documents released on Wednesday show the girl’s maternal grandparents “are of a Muslim background but are non practising”.

Her mother had protested that her daughter is a Christian and should never have been placed with devout Muslim foster parents.

The dispute has caused a furore amid allegations the child’s foster carers had taken a necklace from her that contained a cross and refused to allow her to eat her favourite meal - spaghetti carbonara - because it contained pork products.

Tower Hamlets Council, which had taken the child into care after concerns for her safety were raised by police, said it did not recognise the claims.

The court papers show the girl was placed with foster carers who were “not culturally matched” because of the urgent need to find a safe home for her.

On Wednesday, Sir Martin Narey, the Government’s official adviser on fostering, intervened to insist it would be wrong to ban carers from looking after children just because they were a different religion or ethnicity.

Sir Martin told The Telegraph he will publish a fostering report at the end of the year which will make ethnicity and religion of carers a ‘secondary’ issue. Sir Martin said: “Skin colour and religion do not matter in 2017.”

The eight-page written order published on Wednesday shows the child was taken into the care of social services on March 10th after police intervention. It is understood the mother suffers from alcoholism and a possible cocaine addiction and had been arrested for prostitution.

Judge Khatun Sapnara ruled the court order made on Tuesday be published to clear up confusion over the complex case.

She will now consider whether to allow the grandmother to take the child abroad to live. The grandmother wants to return to her country of origin, according to the court documents.

There had been complaints that the child had been placed with a foster family that did not speak English - a claim vehemently denied by the council. The court order suggested the girl’s foreign-born grandmother needs a translator.

The order shows that Tower Hamlets applied for the child to be placed with her grandparents - after a six months with foster parents - and that the judge agreed.

The order states: “Documents including the assessment of the maternal grandparents state that they are of a Muslim background but are non practising. The child’s mother says they are of Christian heritage.”

The mother first complained about the foster placement some months ago but a court hearing in June heard that an independent court-appointed guardian had visited the carers and found the child “is settled and well cared for by the foster carer”.

The local authority then went back to court in August to apply for the child to be placed with her grandmother in the “long term”.

The mother, according to the court order, opposed the council’s plan. According to the court documents “the child’s biological father has not been located”.

Tower Hamlets Council said it welcomed the decision by the family court to publish the order and that “it supports our position that we always had the child’s best interests at heart”.

Debbie Jones, director of Children’s Services at Tower Hamlets, said: “As a local authority, our number one priority with foster care is ensuring a child is placed in a safe and loving environment.

“Our foster carers are qualified people from different backgrounds, with vast experience of looking after children. They represent the diverse make up of our borough which is a place where people of all backgrounds get on with one another.”

She's an apostate. Her foster parents will have to kill her.
