A French student admits to lying about Samuel Patty and the lesson leading to his death. A social studies teacher was beheaded last year for showing his students caricatures of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. She accused Patti of Islamophobia. But she now admits that she was lying.
A sensation erupted over the lesson after the father of a 13-year-old criticized social media and called for action. Among other things, the girl mistakenly told her father that Patti asked all Muslims during class to leave the classroom. It is said that this happened when he introduced the animation. She accused Patti of Islamophobia.
The same girl was not in the classroom during the related lesson on freedom of expression and disbelief. She told her father that she was stopped due to the criticism she expressed in the class, Le Parisien writes, because she did not want to reveal the true reason at home.
The student is now on trial for defamation. Her father is suspected of involvement in Patty’s murder.
Due to the hate campaign on social media, a Muslim extremist tracked down the 47-year-old teacher. The man waited for Patty and killed him. Then the security services shot the man.
