Noor Inayat Khan, a proud Muslim woman whose faith guided her in her journey, is the type of role model that young women across the world, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, have long sought out. A woman whose heroism was not defined by any other person but herself. Noor displayed courage and loyalty throughout her life and in death.
Noor, a decendant of Indian princes, became a British secret agent during World War II. She led an extraordinary life until she was betrayed to the Nazis, suffered torture and interrogation, and was killed on 13th September 1944. At this time, she was only 30 years old.
Today at Inspire, we will be remembering the heroic contribution of so many like her, who have given their lives for their country.
