    Teacher banned from the classroom for life after tweeting 'beheading deserved' and 'well done ISIS'

    Education bosses overrode the five year suspension, making it a lifetime ban

    A British teacher has been banned from the classroom for life after a tirade of pro-ISIS rants on Twitter.
    Nargs Bibi, 32, was found guilty by a disciplinary panel of posting the foul-mouthed rants online.
    Among other things Bibi posted sick messages in line with ISIS militants' actions, such as beheadings.
    The former teacher posted lines like "beheading deserved" online before telling his followers: "Well done IS...don't blow the shrines up...kill kafir for wat they've done[sic]."
    He went on to say: "F*** ur teaching job. F*** UK and US...Allah destroy them. They deserve every killing...hide it frm public...cant hide it frm me[sic]."
    Despite what they described as the "malicious and highly offensive" nature of Bibi's tweets the panel which dealt with the case in Coventry while recommending that she should be banned also recommended that Bibi should be given the opportunity to apply to have the ban lifted after five years.
    Bibi was dismissed from Knowsley Junior School in Oldham in 2010.
    Overriding the panel's recommendations National College of Teaching and Leadership (NCTL) deputy director, Alan Meyrick, imposed a life time ban.
    He said: "On balance I do not believe that the panel has placed sufficient weight on the serious and extreme nature of the comments, and has given rather too much weight to the mitigation set out.
    "I have therefore decided that the prohibition order should have no provision for review. In my view this decision reflects the extreme nature of the material posted on Twitter and the regard with which the public will hold a teacher who has posted such material."
    The disciplinary findings say Bibi admitted the allegations but claimed that her action was out of character at a time when she was suffering from poor mental health.
    However, the panel fund that her Twitter posts "undermined fundamental British values," "demonstrated an intolerance to other faiths and / or beliefs," and "promoted political and/or religious extremism."
    Her action was, they found, "unacceptable professional conduct which could bring the teaching profession into disrepute.
    As he imposed the ban Mr Meyrick said: "This means that Ms Nargs Bibi is prohibited from teaching indefinitely and cannot teach in any school, sixth form college, relevant youth accommodation or children's home in England.
    "Furthermore, in view of the seriousness of the allegations found proved against her, I have decided that Ms Nargs Bibi shall not be entitled to apply for restoration of her eligibility to teach."
    Bibi has the right to appeal to the High Court against the ruling.
