We at the Maylands Mayl would like to sincerely apologise for any offence the Shamima Begum article in our March Edition caused to any of our readers. We would never set out to intentionally upset or offend anyone. We continue to strive to make the magazine interesting to read. Unfortunately, some people feel we overstepped the mark this month and once again we sincerely apologise. The article certainly was in no way intended to be hateful, as some have suggested, but we considered it to be a satirical piece of writing which was not meant to be taken literally.
