THE sister of jihadi bride Shamima Begum has slammed her ‘vile’ views after the teen said the Manchester Arena terror attack was ‘justified’.

Renu Begum released a statement on behalf of her family saying they were ‘shocked and appalled at the vile comments she has made to the media’ from a Syrian refugee camp.

The family added they feel she has been brainwashed by Islamic State and will fight the Home Office’s decision to revoke her citizenship and ban her from returning to the UK.

The letter states: “We wish to make clear, that along with the rest of the country, we are shocked and appalled at the vile comments she has made to the media in recent days.

“These are not representative of British values, and my family entirely reject the comments she has made.”

They added the teen has been in the “thrall” of a “murderous and misogynistic cult” for four years now and “her exploitation at their hands has fundamentally damaged her”.

Shamima left east London in 2015 to join the terror group and is currently living in a refugee camp in northern Syria.

She gave birth to a baby boy a few days ago and has said she wants to return to the UK.

Her family have also asked Home Secretary Sajid Javid to help bring her new born son to Britain.

FAMILY WANT TO BRING SHAMIMA’S BABY HOME

The letter went on to say: “We hope you understand our position in this respect and why we must, therefore, assist Shamima in challenging your decision to take away the one thing that is her only hope at rehabilitation, her British citizenship,”

“Shamima’s status will now be a matter for our British courts to decide in due course.

“We seek solace in the fact that the institution of our courts as independent arbitrators of this nation’s laws have served as a bastion of good practice to the world.

“My family trusts that this institution will properly perform its functions and entrusts Shamima’s future to its decision-making process.”

ISIS BRIDE BEGS FOR MERCY

Shamima has said she is “willing to change” her ways while pleading for “mercy” from Britain.

The 19-year-old also claims her newborn son Jerah is so sick she will not allow him to return to the UK without her.

“I am struggling to get my supplies in right now,” she told Sky News correspondent John Sparks while speaking from Syria.

“I don’t have a card because they lost my card, so I have to run around to take care of my son now, when I am sick. I am not getting my stuff.”

In a message to British politicians the teen said: “I would like them to re-evaluate my case with a bit more mercy in their heart, you know.”

When asked by the Sky journalist if she could be rehabilitated following her time with the terror group, she replied: “I am willing to change.”

The young mum also said she has no desire to go to Bangladesh – who don’t want her anyway.

She said: “I don’t have anything there, another language, I have never even seen the place, I don’t know why people are offering that to me.”

Earlier today it was claimed Begum could be handed a backdoor route to return to the UK as her baby is British.

Immigration lawyers have said Begum could use her son’s nationality to accompany him back to Britain.

However, it’s also been reported Begum could be stuck in her squalid refugee camp for two years after Britain and Holland also battle to keep her away from their borders.

She fled her home in Bethnal Green, East London, in 2015 to join Islamic State but gave birth to a baby boy over the weekend.

Begum had been begging to come back to the UK to raise Jerah, but her hopes appeared to be dashed when the Home Office stripped her British citizenship.

However, he admitted returning jihadists can’t always be prosecuted over what they’ve done in the Middle East as it’s so hard to gather evidence.

He continued: “Then let’s say they’re in the UK and they radicalise others, they groom others, they carry out a terrorist attack themselves or incite others to do that.


“What about the danger and risk to the country of that?

“What about the impact on community cohesion if people come back to the country and use that to radicalise others? I have to weigh that up too.

“These are people who chose to leave the UK and join a terrorist organisation that hates the UK and everyone who lives in the UK.”
