Muslim Teacher's Rant: UK Will Be "Replaced" By His Faith, Gets Fired

A teacher sparked controversy in the United Kingdom for his statements regarding Westernized girls, which he described as “lunatics,” and has been banned from teaching indefinitely.

A panel heard that 30-year-old Aqib Khan, who taught at Harborne Academy in Birmingham, made other controversial and offensive comments, including a bizarre claim where he argued that "[having] a baby over 30 was worse than a cousin marriage and that the child will most likely have disabilities.

The Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA) found that Khan, an English teacher, undermined "fundamental British values" of "individual liberty and mutual respect.” The TRA also said that the teacher, who started teaching in 2020, was already being assessed over actions between May 2021 and March 2023.

The agency’s panel found proven comments, including material from a Microsoft Teams group chat involving students, and determined that Khan’s actions amounted to both unacceptable professional conduct and conduct that may bring the profession into disrepute.

Aside from comments about cousin marriage, Khan made more controversial statements, such as claims that “by 2050 the whole of UK, France, and Germany will look like Birmingham” and “the number of Muslims went up 44% in 10 years. Everyone else is falling or growing at a snail's pace. Traditional values > liberalism."

The agency also heard Khan say words to the effect of: "If you believe in feminism, if you believe in aborting babies, in man and man and woman being married, if you believe in working until you are 35 years old and not having any children. If you believe all this stuff, that’s fine; believe in it. But I am telling you one fact: you’re going to get replaced by Muslims even faster; they will replace you even faster."

Based on these comments, the TRA concluded that Khan failed to maintain professional boundaries. The panel considered him to have undermined "fundamental British values, including... individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs."

Khan may appeal the decision to the High Court and even apply for the ban to be set aside from March 18, 2026, two years from the date of the order. The TRA said that if Khan files an appeal, the panel will consider the outcome.
