(Photograph) - KING FAHAD academy (pictured), a Muslim school in west London accused of teaching religious hatred, has been praised by inspectors.

The DfES demanded the inspection of the Acton school after a former teacher claimed the school used textbooks that depicted Christians as pigs and Jews as apes.

However, the inspectors said it met all regulations concerning pupils'

spiritual, moral, social and cultural education and that students showed good "empathy and tolerance of other's views". Photograph: Empics
