A teen who fled Britain to join the Islamic State complained that it was “unjust” and “heartbreaking” that the British government revoked her citizenship, effectively putting an end to her return to Britain.
Shamima Begum, who left the country in 2015 to join the terror group as a so-called jihadi bride when she was 15 years old, has ignited a debate whether she and her newborn child should be allowed to return after she was found in a refugee camp.
The article goes on to state the following:
The British government came out against her return, while some other experts have expressed possible legal problems of blocking a citizen’s return to the country. But on Tuesday the British government decided to strip Begum of her British citizenship.
Following the decision, Begum told ITV News that the move was unfair to her. “I’m a bit shocked. It’s a bit upsetting and frustrating. I feel like it’s a bit unjust on me and my son,” said Begum, who gave birth to her son on Sunday. The father is Yago Riedijk, an ISIS member from the Netherlands.
Lamenting that Britain won’t take her back, Begum said she’ll try to get Dutch citizenship, since she’s now married to a Dutch citizen, and said, “If he gets sent back to prison in Holland I can just wait for him while he is in prison.”
She also said she didn’t regret what she’d done:
When asked whether it was a mistake to travel to Syria, she told the broadcaster: “In a way, yes, but I don’t regret it because it’s changed me as a person. It’s made me stronger, tougher, you know.”
“I married my husband, I wouldn’t have found someone like him back in the UK,” she continued. “I had my kids, I did have a good time there. It’s just that then things got harder and I couldn’t take it any more and I had to leave.”
