Bristol inundated with news coverage about Muslim speaker’s cancelled event

Northeast Middle School

Once again Bristol is in the regional and national spotlight.

A class studying world religions at Northeast Middle School was slated to have a Muslim woman come and “dispel misconceptions” about Islam.

But then the threats started, the Hartford Courant reported, forcing the school to cancel the speech amid a wave of troubling emails and phone calls.

The school initially sent a letter home to parents letting them know that Annam Choudhry, who is Muslim, would speak at the social studies class on Nov. 22.

The letter said that Choudhry, who grew up in New York and lives in Connecticut, started an organization called YURSA, according to Fox61.
