Spanish law allows for a course on Islamic religious education in public schools upon request. However, during the last academic year, none of the 35 students who applied for the course had their request granted.

So far this year no one has applied for the lessons. Members of the Islamic community have complained about the situation.

The Islamic community in the Balearic Islands is estimated to be between 30,000 and 35,000 people.
