Kate Godfrey-Faussett said that she is the victim of a “witch hunt” against the Muslim community, and has been "hanged, drawn and quartered" by the mainstream media.
The British Psychological Society (BPS), the organization in charge of the profession in the UK, has said it is “concerned” by views expressed by Godfrey-Faussett and she is now being investigated over comments deemed to be “unethical”.
Godfrey-Faussett, who embraced Islam over 20 years ago, has worked in classrooms and lectured warning about state-imposed teaching of sex education to children as young as four years old. One lecture she gave at the Islamic Unity Forum in 2018 went viral online.
“Since the attacks began, my employers saw articles condemning me, now I have been suspended without pay,” she said, adding, “It feels like a witch hunt is going on and no one has asked for my opinion or for my side of the argument.”
The investigation targeting Godfrey-Faussett follows protests by parents against homosexual relationship classes titled "No Outsiders" lessons at the Parkfield School in Birmingham.
