A JIHADI schoolgirl who fled London to join IS aged 15 is now asking to come home so she can have her baby in Britain. Heavily pregnant Shamima Beg
A JIHADI schoolgirl who fled London to join IS aged 15 is now asking to come home so she can have her baby in Britain.
Heavily pregnant Shamima Begum, now 19, has surfaced in a in a refugee camp and says she doesn’t regret her decision to join the murderous cult.
She is due to give birth to her third child, after her first two children died of starvation and illness, and wants the baby to have a decent life with her in the UK.
Begum ran away to join the brutal Islamic extremist regime with two young pals from Bethnal Green in 2015 and calmly revealed the first time she saw a severed head it “didn’t faze me at all”.
The teen was discovered by a Times journalist in a camp filled with refugees escaping the battle for the final IS stronghold.
She told him she had been married to a Dutch fighter and enjoyed a “normal” life, but he is said to have surrendered himself to Syrian fighters and she is believed to be a widow.
I’ll do anything required just to be able to come home and live quietly with my child
She added: “I know what everyone at home thinks of me as I have read all that was written about me online. But I just want to come home to have my child. I’ll do anything required just to be able to come home and live quietly with my child.”
Discussing what made her walk away from the embattled village of Baghuz, Begum described herself as “weak” for leaving IS and praised those brave enough to stay.
She added: “In the end, I just could not endure anymore. I just couldn’t take it. Now all I want to do is come home to Britain.”
The teen also criticised the group’s oppression and corruption saying they didn’t “deserve victory”.
But she insisted: “I don’t regret coming here.”
I don’t regret coming here
Begum – who used her elder sister’s passport to leave the UK – fled with two Bethnal Green Academy pals, Kadiza Sultana and Amira Abase, in February 2015.
The trio flew to Turkey and then used people smugglers to cross the border into Syria.
She believed that her two Bethnal Green friends were still alive as recently as two weeks ago, but
Sultana is widely thought to have been killed in a Raqqa airstrike in 2016.
SECURITY MINISTER WARNING
Begum said: “I heard from other women only two weeks ago that the two were still alive in Baghuz. But with all the bombing, I am not sure whether they have survived.”
Security minister Ben Wallace has previously warned of the dangers of returning IS fighters and followers.

He said: “They are battle- hardened . . . and some are coming back to further and continue their attacks on our way of life and our values.”
New laws are expected to see jihadists facing up to a decade in jail if they return to Britian.
The Times said Begum’s family couldn’t be contacted last night, but their lawyer said they were grateful to hear she’d escaped from IS.
