A 22-year-old Danish student who gave up her studies to fight ISIS in Syria and Iraq is now seen as a ‘terrorist’ by her own country. She also has a Rs 7 crore reward on her head.
The 22-year-old former student Joanna Palani quit studies in 2014, when she was still a teenager, to fight ISIS militants in Syria and Iraq.
She fought for the Kurds but after returning to her home in Denmark, she was taken into custody. Joanna even faced a jail sentence.
Denmark received criticism over it and the country’s hypocrisy was strongly condemned.
Joanna was born in a UN refugee camp and was still a toddler when she moved to Copenhagen, Denmark. At the age of 9, she first picked up a gun and learnt to fire.
Joanna has recently claimed that there is a $1 million bounty on her head. Even before this claim, her life was a struggle since her country could not support her heroism.
After returning from fighting in September 2015, the Danish authorities banned her from travelling to the region again.
