NCMC Files Complaint Against a School for Teaching Homosexuality

News Agencies

Egypt’s National Council for Motherhood and Childhood (NCMCfiled an official complaint against a German school in Cairo for teaching homosexuality to elementary students, according to the “Ahram” website.

The National Council for Motherhood and Childhood filed a complaint at the office of Public Prosecutor Mohamed Shawky, accusing Rahn Schulen Kairo (Rahn School Cairo) in New Cairo of teaching homosexuality to sixth-grade elementary students.

It is worth noting that this is not the first time someone has filed a complaint against the school for the same reason.

Last week, investigation authorities decided to refer another complaint accusing the German School of teaching homosexuality to elementary students to the New Cairo Prosecution for further investigation.

They also summoned the school officials and the complainants to hear their statements.

Lawyer Ashraf Nagy, who represents one of the students’ parents, filed a complaint against the school officials, accusing them of teaching homosexuality as part of the curriculum for sixth-grade elementary students.

According to Nagy, the complaint he filed includes allegedly unsuitable study materials that contain ideas promoting immorality and homosexuality.

The materials, he added, also suggest that young men and women should be free to choose their partners even if they were of the same sex without recourse to religious values and social and ethical mores.

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Education announced that Minister Reda Hegazy had issued instructions to form a committee of international education experts and ministry officials to investigate the allegations made against the school on social media and take immediate legal action if necessary.

The Education Ministry issued a statement emphasizing that the ministry entirely and utterly rejects any attempts by any school on Egyptian soil to promote or teach study materials that contradict the innate nature of human instincts, divine revelation, societal values, or ethics.

The ministry also stressed that one of its top priorities is to make every effort to raise decent individuals, strengthened by the belief in its crucial role in shaping future generations, thus contributing to creating a safe, virtuous, and secure society.

According to local news reports, the material in question is a lesson on sexual orientation in a German biology book.

Ahram Online tried to contact Rahn Schulen Kairo to comment, but the school never responded. 

While consensual homosexual acts are not explicitly criminalized under Egyptian law, people accused of homosexuality have been convicted on charges such as debauchery, prostitution, and offending public morality.

The Egyptian Coptic Orthodox Church and Al-Azhar have historically opposed same-sex (homosexual) relations.
