According to The Daily Telegraph, a Greek schoolboy living in Australia was chased and assaulted by Muslims after a confrontation over the contents of his lunch! Antonios, 5 years old, said he and a friend had to be locked inside the library for an hour after being chased by a group of Muslim boys offended by his choice of food while they were fasting.
The child’s family said the following exchange took place: – Muslim student to Antonios: “Why are you eating ham, it’s Ramadan.” – Antonios: “My mum packed this for lunch today.” – Muslim student: “Don’t eat that. How can you eat pig, it’s disgusting.”
Mr Grigoriou said he removed his son and a younger child from the school on Tuesday after the boy was punched in the eye and kicked in the legs by a Muslim student. “It has broken my heart to see this happening to my boy,” he said. Antonios, who wrote about his experiences in words and drawings, still has nightmares.
Other parents also complained to The Daily Telegraph about bullying at the school and claimed victims received too little protection. One said her 12-year-old son was scared to open his lunch box at school because he was harassed about what is in it. “He has been bullied from day one … about being a Christian and about the hot salami in his lunch,” she said.
“My boy has a Greek background … the bullying is extreme. He has been called a fat pig and hit on the back with a stick.”
