Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
My husband utterly despises IS, radicalised fundamentalists, jihadis, terrorists and all they stand for. He knows far more about Islam than I do, and tells me their ideology is far from true Islamic thought and religion.
Yet even he feels terribly sorry for this woman and thinks she should be brought back to UK and given medical/psychological help, while her baby is medically examined and cared for, but not separated from its mother.
He says the Law will sort it out and she will get true justice. He doesn't think she presents a risk to us.

My only worry is that ordinary, law-abiding Muslims here in UK (such as my gentle husband) will be subject to Islamophobia, racism and unfair exclusion and prejudice.

Any human being is a fellow human being. And there is quite a lot of power in compassion and tolerance. They can defuse fraught situations and disarm evil.
