On Tuesday, Abdul Qureishi, president of the Ahmdiyya Muslim Community, Halifax chapter, gave a presentation to the world history classes. He was accompanied by Fazal Malik of Charlottetown, P.E.I., who delivered a talk on the terror group ISIS and related issues threatening public peace.

Exploits Valley High teachers Deborah Ball and Chad Oldford said students benefited from the presentation.

“(The) world history students enjoyed Mr. Qureishi’s presentation on Islam and ISIS,” Ball said. “He was knowledgeable and engaged students in this timely topic.”

World history students study the Middle East and terrorism, so it was a good opportunity to examine and discuss current events, she added.

The students had their eyes opened by the presentations.

“It is important to eliminate stereotypes portrayed in the media about Muslim countries,” said student Robyn Penney. “This presentation helped us students learn some truth about Islam and the reality of Middle East.”

Her classmate, Laura Butt, enjoyed hearing the historical perspective of world religions.

“Many wars have been caused for the sake of religion throughout history. It was interesting to examine the current strife in the Middle East,” she said.
