ISIS didn’t enough from disrupting educational process in the city of Raqqa, and destroying an entire generation, and depriving them of the most basic rights that are available even in the poorest countries of the Third World.
The conduct of ISIS in spreading the culture of backwardness and terror after extinguishing the light of mind.
After stopping education for a long period of time, the militant group started re-opening of schools and issued a new curriculum, and the most important and largest subject is a thesis of Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab founder of the Salafi “Wahhabi” ideology, with the neglect of all scientific and literary aspects in this curriculum, and focus on the thought of “Tawhid and Jihad” in the elementary stage of the educational process, the group has also issued a new circular in which demands teachers and the staff of the teaching corps to come into specific mosques to declare repentance of what ISIS calls “dependence on the Infidel Nusayri Educational System”, as if the teachers were members of Assad’s militias, or that the books which were taught to the sons of Syria have been written by the hands of Bashar and his gang, without the knowledge of the level of education in Syria which was in advanced rank, before the coming of ISIS herds to return the education process into before the dark ages.
It seems that teachers today are between the fire of regime malice and ISIS’ knife , the regime from his side, stops paying teacher’s salary and deprives him of his livelihood source, just to stay in the areas controlled by the group, in while the group considers the teacher an apostate and infidel if he does not accept to declare repentance of regime, and it may reaches to punish him or even kill him. ISIS has seized the property of many teachers of the sons of Raqqa, who reside in places beyond its controlled areas, through considering them as apostates and consequently confiscate their property and possessions, the group’s decision included both of men and women, where a specific places have been allocated to declare repentance, during a maximum period of two weeks.
The stupidity of the group has become clear, when the retirees have been included in the process of repentance, despite of leaving teaching for several years, as the group demanded male to bring two personal photos, as well as the so-called “patron” to acquit them in front of the group, so teachers have become between the fire of regime and the knife of the group.
