A Texas high school teacher is on administrative leave after being accused of asking a Muslim student whether she was grieving over the death of Osama bin Laden. The alleged incident happened Monday at Clear Brook High School in Friendswood, Texas. Neither the teacher nor the student have been identified.
Some students say that the incident has been blown out of proportion but others say that the student was humiliated to the point of tears.
Mustafaa Carroll, the executive director of the Houston chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said, "It is troubling because it says there are people who actually believe that Muslims are grieving over the death of someone that's caused so much misery to others."
