A schoolboy aged just 11 has been handed a taxpayer-funded £3,500 compensation payout after his school wrongly accused him of supporting ISIS.
The unnamed boy turned up at a school in Tower Hamlets, east London, when he was eight years of age wearing a T-shirt bearing the slogan: ‘I want to be like Abu Bakr al-Siddique’.
Abu Bakr al-Siddique is a prominent figure in Islam born in the year 583 who would later become the father-in-law of the prophet Muhammad, who married his daughter.
He is much loved because he used his money to buy Muslim slaves from their inhuman masters and set them free.
But teachers saw the boy’s top and panicked that it was a reference to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – the Iraqi extremist leader of ISIS who is now the world’s most wanted man.
