Minnesota School Choir Sings Song Dedicated to Ramadan

Parents are wondering why members of the Blaine High School choir in Minnesota were expected to perform the song 'Eid un Sa'Eid' on Thursday night.

They are dedicating the composition to the holy month of Ramadan. The song includes the words "Allahu Akbar," which means "God is Great." Thursday's concert is also expected to include Jewish and Christian holiday songs.

One user wrote, "No child should be forced to sing a song about the Muslims and the religion of hatred."

This year, the month of Ramadan started on June 17 and ended on July 17. One parent said that in the wake of the Paris and San Bernardino attacks, having children sing a song glorifying Allah would be "insensitive."

Anoka-Hennepin School District officials say they have received about a dozen complaints regarding the song dedicated to Ramadan.
