A Dutch teacher in Rotterdam has taken refuge in a safe place after receiving threats and accusations of “blasphemy” by several female students for showing in class a cartoon of a man with his throat slit wearing a shirt from the French weekly Charlie Hebdo sticking out his tongue at the jihadist who just beheaded him.

As confirmed by the Emmauscollege Secondary Institute, the teacher is hiding in a safe place, after starting a class discussion about drawing “Immortal” by the Dutch cartoonist Joep Bertrams, which had been hanging on a classroom board for five years, along with photos of the Indian spiritual leader Jiddu Krishnamurti or the Pakistani activist Malala.

The Dutch Government asked schools to participate last Monday in the commemoration of the assassination of the French professor Samuel Paty, which began with a minute of silence, the flag at half mast, a speech by the school principal, and later, some teachers chose to open a debate on the cartoons.

Warned that “there was a caricature of the prophet” In the classroom of the threatened teacher, several students entered that class and demanded that he remove the drawing, accusing him of “blasphemy”.

Fear of teachers

The teacher tried unsuccessfully to explain that the image represented a jihadist, in the form of criticism of the 2015 attack on Charlie Hebdo, and did not draw Muhammad. The teachers agreed to remove the cartoon after tensions with the students, but an image of the board began to circulate on social networks with the title “a cartoon of our prophet”, which attracted insults, but also threats against the teacher.

“If this is not removed immediately, we will do things differently“writes an anonymous account on Facebook.

According to the Dutch Police and Public Prosecutor’s Office, a investigation to find the authors of various threats received in networks against the teacher, but no one has yet been arrested. Several teachers have denounced in the Dutch newspaper NRC that they no longer feel safe going to school for what happened to his partner.
