A FATHER refused to let his 12-year-old daughter complete her homework from school after she was tasked with writing a letter explaining why she had converted to Islam.
Mark McLachlan, 43, said he failed to see what the assigned task would achieve and told his daughter she would not finish the homework.
Mr McLachlan said: “When I saw this assignment in the planner, written by the teacher, you could have knocked me over with a feather.
“I told her she will not be completing it and she is more worried about getting detention.
“We send our kids to school to get a good education and use what they have learnt to have a good career.
