A bill has been filed in legislation to stop "Islamic religious indoctrination" in Tennessee schools.

The Republican-sponsored bill came after public outcry from parents and school administrators.

The complaints claimed that current textbooks have over-emphasized Islam teaching, while excluding other religions. 

A portion of the measure said religion in books, and other materials can only be for educational purposes and not to promote a religion or belief.
