Al-Huda Institute Canada would like to be clear that law enforcement authorities have never brought forward any allegations that four girls associated with the Institute traveled to join terrorist organizations, as alleged in a CBC story (The National, December 8, 2015).
In addition, the Institute has no knowledge as to the identity of these individuals and as such, cannot confirm whether or not they were enrolled in the Institution, for how long, or any other related information. We are and remain committed to working with authorities on this or any other matter.
Al-Huda Institute Canada provides authentic Islamic knowledge which is based on compassion, mercy, and tolerance. It unequivocally condemns violence and terrorism.
The school is closed today, December 8, due to the media coverage which has put the Institute, its staff and students at risk of backlash. Local Police Divisions have responded to our concerns and have been providing support.
