The home secretary, Sajid Javid, says that he “will not hesitate” to prevent the return to the UK of so-called ‘jihadi brides’ who voluntarily left this country in order to join Daesh.
Mr Javid issued the warning to Shamima Begum and others who fled the UK in order to join the terror group in Syria.
In an intervew with The Times, Begum said that she had ‘no regrets’ about joining Daesh when the terrorist organisation was at the height of its activity.
Writing in The Times newspaper, Mr Javid said:
“We must remember that those who left Britain to join Daesh were full of hate for our country.
“My message is clear – if you have supported terrorist organisations abroad I will not hesitate to prevent your return.
“If you do manage to return you should be ready to be questioned, investigated and potentially prosecuted.”
Daesh became a proscribed organisation in June, 2014. Begum left Britain in 2015 in order to make her way to the terrorist organisation in 2015 with two of her friends, one of whom was killed in Syria.
Shamima Begum, 19, was found by the Times at a Syrian refugee camp where she openly admitted that she does not regret joining the organisation that was responsible for so many brutal and barbaric murders.
These acts included, but were not limited to; encouraging children to murder captives by shooting them in the back of the head, beheading aid workers who went on humanitarian missions to try and help civilians who were caught up in the fighting, and setting fire to prisoners with petrol whilst they were locked in cages.
