UPDATE: 7.50pm Paul Goodman MP has made a formal complaint to the Charity Commission. Here's the text of his letter...
I’m writing to make a formal complaint about the King Fahd Academy in London. I gather that the academy has charitable status.
You may be aware that the school apparently uses textbooks that describe Christians as “pigs” and Jews as “monkeys”, and that Jim Knight, the Schools Minister, is reported to have ordered an official investigation into the academy’s use of the textbooks.
The Charity Commission’s guidelines in relation generally to “Complaints about Charities” and in particular to “What complaints will the Commission take up?” state under section 6 that –
“Complaints that the Commission will take up as regulator are, generally speaking, ones where there is a serious risk of significant harm or abuse to the charity, its assets, beneficiaries or reputation; where the use of our powers of intervention is necessary to protect them; and where this represents a proportionate response to the issues in the case”.
Furthermore, section 8 states that –
“By "harm" we mean:I contend that the use of these textbooks by the King Fahd Academy causes serious damage to the reputation of a charity and charities generally.
*serious detriment to the people or causes the charity
* loss or misuse of significant assets or resources;
* serious damage to the reputation of a charity or charities
