London School Girl who Joined ISIS Presumed Dead In Bombing

How impressional the youth are, I cannot even comprehend this girl’s thinking of leaving home and joining ISIS in Syria. How did she think she was going to be treated? What culture shock even for muslims wanting to help their barbaric cause. Where were the parents; did they not have any idea that their children were up to this; or were they scared to say anything for fear of repercussions?

According to BBC News:


Kadiza Sultana and schoolfriends Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15 at the time, flew from Gatwick to Turkey on 17 February 2015 after telling their parents they were going out for the day.
The Bethnal Green Academy pupils later entered Syria and were thought to be living in Raqqa, a stronghold for the so-called Islamic State.
They had been studying for their GCSEs at the school in Tower Hamlets, east London – where they have been described as “straight-A students”.
Mr Akunjee said Kadiza had expressed a desire to return.

This is a sad story, but I put the responsibility upon the parents, after all, they had the power to teach their children right from wrong, but chose the alternative. People have to live with their life choices, I can only hope these parents realize this now. what do you think?
