A pro-Israeli post on WhatsApp has landed a Centurion teacher in hot water, causing the local Muslim community to call for the teacher to step down. Last month, Sudesh Mooloo was allegedly suspended from his duties as an Afrikaans and history teacher at Laudium Secondary School when his “I am not anti-Palestine, but anti-Hamas, I stand with Israel” status stirred up a storm on 18 May. Mooloo has since been labelled as the teacher who hates Muslims by upset people in the Laudium community, who demanded he be held accountable for the post.
