YASSMIN Abdel-Magied — “Australia’s most publicly hated Muslim” has declared on the eve of her departure to live in London that the country has “betrayed” her.

The Sudanese-born Muslim activist — who earlier this year sparked controversy with comments about Anzac Day and Islam being feminist — is angry about her treatment in Australia.

“I love Australia, I’m super patriotic. Yet I feel like I’ve been duped, like I’ve been sold this false sense of belonging,” she told Good Weekend.

It’s not the first time Ms Abdel-Magied has admitted she feels “betrayed by Australia”, but the 26-year-old recently saw a psychologist because she felt “kind of like a national outrage”.

This followed death threats including videos of beheadings and rapes sent to her via email and Twitter.

Abdel-Magied, who has lived in Australia since her parents fled the strict Islamic Sudanese regime in 1992, is leaving for London next month.

The committed Muslim reveals she has been wearing a hijab since the age of 10, when she announced to her family she would start wearing Arabic headdress.
