Pregnant ISIS bride wants to return to Britain to have baby of Dutch Muslim terrorist
Jihadi bride Shamima Begum, who fled London to join ISIS age 15 is now asking to come home so she can have her third jihadi baby in Britain, but reports say ‘permanent exclusion is now an option’.
The 19-year-old jihadi bride who is now living at a refugee camp in Syria after the terror group was brought to its knees, is due to give birth to her third child after her first two children died of starvation and illness.
She ran away to join ISIS with two young Muslim friends, Kadiza Sultana and Amira Abase from Bethnal Green, London, in February 2015. She used her elder sister’s passport to leave the UK.
The Home Secretary has warned he “will not hesitate” to prevent the return of Britons who traveled to join ISIS as debate flared over what should happen to the runaway jihadi schoolgirl.
It was initially believed that as a British citizen she would have to be allowed back in the country.
However, the legal test to exclude the wife of an ISIS terrorist from Britain is if she is eligible to claim citizenship elsewhere.
Shamima’s parents are from Bangladesh so it is understood permanent exclusion is one of three options available for officials.
The other two options for the jihadi bride are to be prosecuted in her absence for being in a designated terror area or to let her come back but be heavily monitored.
Her admission that she did not regret traveling to join ISIS, and her assertion that she is “not the same silly little 15-year-old schoolgirl who ran away from Bethnal Green four years ago” has been highlighted as a cause for concern.
Dr. Kim Howells, a former counter-terrorism minister said: “She sounds to be completely unrepentant, she sounds cynical.”
Meanwhile, the identity of her jihadi husband was revealed as Yago Riedijk, a Dutch convert to Muslim who fled his comfortable middle-class home to join ISIS – earning him a six-year jail sentence in his absence in Holland.
Abase Hussen, whose daughter Amira is thought to be alive and still alongside ISIS in Syria, said the jihadi schoolgirls are victims who should be ‘helped, not punished’.
