Foreign Textbooks Banned by ISIS

People living under Islamic State rule have been banned from owning foreign literature, drama, philosophy and history books as the jihadists launch a broad crackdown on learning that diverges from their world view.

To herald the start of the academic year this week, Islamic State (Isis) closed university departments of law, political science, fine art, archaeology, sports education, philosophy, tourism and hotel management.

Activists in Mosul in Iraq and Raqqa in Syria, both controlled by Isis, said the militant group also halted further teaching of “democracy, cultural education, human rights and law (general courses)."
