District Judge Williscroft at Derby County Court, has banned a British father from taking his son to church, after the son's Pakistani mother won a court order in favour of this.

The court warned the father to desist from taking the 9-year-old boy to the church or risk losing access to him.

He has however made an appeal at a High Court, in a bid to overturn the rulng. In a comment, he suggested that the Judge is sacred of being branded anti-islam.

He said, "This judge is simply scared of being branded Islamophobic."

"I want my son to have a balanced life in which he is exposed to different faiths and can make up his own mind about which, if any, religion he follows."

"My son is being indoctrinated and the only way I can show him other things is to take him to other places,' said the father."

"If I don't show him other types of life he will become just like a dumb sheep. I want him to see and learn about different cultures."

According to a report, the Pakistani-born mother became a Muslim in 2007, following her father's death.

She claims exposing her son to other religions will confuse him in his Islam faith.
