MULTAN: The lady who had shot passed 14 people in California final week along with her husband, had attended one of Pakistan’s many high-profile and worried eremite seminaries for women, a madrassa reliable to AFP Monday.
Tashfeen Malik, 29, had enrolled during a multi-national Al-Huda Institute in Multan in 2013, that targets middle-class women seeking to come closer to Islam. The madrassah also has offices in a US, a UAE, India and a UK, pronounced Imran Amir, an administration central during a seminary.
As investigators in a US continue to examine a trail that led to Tashfeen’s and her husband’s probable radicalisation, her assemblage offers uninformed insight.
Amir adds that during a brief time Tashfeen was enrolled during a school, she took classes on translating a Quran.
“But she did not finish her march and was here usually for a brief time,” he added.
A clergyman who usually chose to brand herself as Muqadas, described Tashfeen as a “good girl”.
As investigators examine Tashfeen’s probable purpose in radicalising her husband, 28-year-old Syed Rizwan Farook, his father hinted that she might not have had to try really hard.
“He [Rizwan] pronounced he concluded with (IS arch Abu Bakr) al-Baghdadi’s ideas for formulating a Islamic State, and he was spooky by Israel,” La Stampa quoted Rizwan’s father, also named Syed Farook, as saying.
“I always used to contend to him, be calm, patience, in dual years’ time Israel will no longer exist,” he said, in remarks reported in Italian.
