ISIS bride Shamima Begum will be hanged if she gets sent to Bangladeshinstead of Britain, country’s foreign minister reveals

The British born schoolgirl was stripped of her UK citizenship earlier this year after she fled to join the murderous cult four years ago aged 15.

Under international law, a person’s citizenship cannot be revoked if doing so would make them stateless but the British government has claimed Begum has dual nationality with Bangladesh through her father.
However Begum has insisted she wouldn’t go to Bangladesh and had never stepped foot in the country.

And now the country’s foreign minister Abdul Momen has increased the pressure on Britain by insisting the jihadi bride is not their problem.

“We have nothing to do with Shamima Begum, she is not a Bangladesh citizen and she has never applied for a Bangladesh citizenship”, he told ITV.

“If anyone is found to be involved with terrorism we have a simple rule, there will be capital punishment.”

“The rule is she should be hanged.”

Describing his country’s laws as a “model in eliminating all terrorists” he said Bangladesh had “zero tolerance” for ISIS and its allies.

Whilst living in Syria Shamima married a Dutch ISIS fighter called Yago Riedijk and had three baby children, all of whom died as infants.

The 19-year-old, who has called herself “weak” for wanting to return to Britain, said she didn’t regret travelling to Syria and had not been fazed by the sight of “severed heads” in bins.
