Canadian school cancels ISIS survivor Nadia Murad over Islamophobia fears

A woman who survived being kidnapped by ISIS and plunged into sexual slavery as a teen has been cancelled — by the largest school board in Canada, according to a report.

AhlulBayt News Agency (ABNA): A woman who survived being kidnapped by ISIS and plunged into sexual slavery as a teen has been cancelled — by the largest school board in Canada, according to a report.

Nadia Murad, 28, was set to sit down with students from some of the 600 schools that are part of the Toronto District School Board to talk about her upcoming book, “The Last Girl: My Story Of Captivity,” to be published in February 2022.

But school board superintendent Helen Fisher pulled the plug on Murad’s visit, saying she would not let students attend because the book would be offensive to Muslims and “foster Islamophobia,” the Telegraph reported.

Murad advocates for survivors of genocide and sexual violence and is also a Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and UN Goodwill Ambassador.

Murad’s book tells how she escaped the ISIS terrorists after being taken from her home and sold into slavery when she was just 14.

Murad details how she was desecrated and tortured before finding her way to a refugee camp in Durhok, in northern Iraq, and then to Germany, where she lives today.

District parent Tanya Lee was outraged, according to the Telegraph.

“This is what the Islamic State means. It is a terrorist organization. It has nothing to do with ordinary Muslims. The Toronto school board should be aware of the difference,” she said.
