24-year-old Suriyah Bi was fired from her job at Heartlands Academy in Birmingham after she objected to showing her class a film about 9/11.
She said the “x-rated clip” was not appropriate for the 11 and 12-year-olds in her class. The video showed the horrors of 9/11 and the reality of Islamic terrorism.

Now, according to the DailyMail, Bi is pursuing claims against the school for unfair dismissal and religious discrimination.
Outside the brief preliminary hearing, Bi said the video was “shown to some 30 children during class. I understand the video was shown without the permission of the authorities.”
“It raised questions about what safeguards there are in schools to protect children. These were children aged 11, of whom many knew little, or nothing, about the 9/11 horror,” she added.

Bi then proceeded to claim that scenes from 9/11 could cause children to kill themselves. “They were subjected to graphic scenes and some were shocked and upset. The video not only showed the plane crashing into the Twin Towers but also showed people committing suicide by jumping to their deaths from the tower blocks. Such young children should not been shown things like that because it is well-known that it can play on their minds and even induce them to kill themselves.”
She added that she felt she was fired for being a 'whistle blower'. Bi claimed, “I was in the classroom when the video was shown and I quickly objected. Later, I was told to leave the school. There was an investigation into the matter but I was dismissed for making a whistle blowing complaint.”
Somehow 'racism' is thrown into the mix. You be the judge.
