Al-Huda Elementary School in Mississauga chose to close its doors on December 8th as it was discovered that 4 previous students had tried to join ISIS.
Part-time school administrator Imran Haq stated that the school was closed to avoid backlash, but refused to take our calls to confirm that statement.
Al-Huda, which is listed as a private elementary school by Ontario’s Ministry of Education, was founded by infamous and controversial female Islamic scholar Farhat Hashmi. The 57-year-old extremist’s ultra-conservative teachings have faced world-wide criticism in the past.
Farhat Hashmi has openly stated that she is a full supporter of Sharia in Canada, and has promoted an extreme wifely subservience to their husbands, including teaching that same philosophy to school-aged girls.
The school offers Islamic seminars to teenagers and adults on evenings and weekends. It’s those classes the four Muslim Canadians, who ranged in age from 16 to early 20s, took in recent years before leaving for Syria to join the terrorist organization.
The oldest young woman of the four, who has been living in Syria since the summer of 2014, attended classes at Al-Huda Institute for three months in 2012.
When we have the woman’s identity, we’ll update this story with the information.
Turkish officials detained the other three would-be terrorist women and they were brought back to Canada in July 2014, according to the RCMP.
Farhat Hashmi, meanwhile, fled Canada three years ago and hasn’t returned in three years. She isn’t a Canadian resident despite Canadian media reports to the contrary.
The Mississauga Gazette is not yet clear how much contact, the Canadian women in question have recently had with Hashmi.
The Mississauga Islamic school Al Huda Institute is located at 5671 McAdam Road in Mississauga neat Hurontario Street and Matheson Boulevard.
