Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Shamima Begum left the UK at the age of 15 to become a 'Jihadi bride' in Syria. She had two babies there, but the children died from malnutrition and illness.
She is now heavily pregnant and is asking to return to UK to have her baby in an NHS hospital.

In an interview she declared that the sight of severed heads in a rubbish bin (victims of executions) 'didn't faze her'.
She is now 19.

It's not permitted to revoke someone's citizenship if it renders them stateless. But she could be seen as posing an enormous threat to the security of UK, as she has obviously been radicalised and brainwashed, and has not been averse to terrorism.

There's a huge debate going on about this young woman and what if anything should be done about her.
I have mixed feelings, and can see both sides of the argument.
Anyone care to comment?
