Bangladesh doesn't Recognise Shamima Begum as a Bangladeshi Citizen

IS teen asks UK to show 'more mercy' British IS teen calls for ‘mercy’

Jihadi bride Shamima Begum has said the United Kingdom government is "making an example of her" by stripping her of citizenship and forbidding her return.

Ms Begum earlier told Sky News she had no desire to go to Bangladesh: "I don't have anything there, another language, I have never even seen the place".

George Freeman, who has served as Mid Norfolk MP since 2010, responded to news earlier this week that the 19-year-old would be stripped of her United Kingdom citizenship with a Twitter post outlining his opposition to the move.

Meanwhile, the Begum family's lawyer Tasnime Akunjee called for Mr Javid to explain what steps could be taken to deliver her days-old son to the United Kingdom from the Syrian refugee camp where they are staying without documentation.

Begum, who is now in a Kurdish controlled camp in Syria alongside baby son Jarrah, and two other British-born women, said of the lack of contact from the Home Office: 'They haven't given me that courtesy'.

The family said they have had no contact with Begum and had only learned she had given birth to a boy through media reports.

They said: "We are sickened by the comments she has made, but, as a family man yourself, we hope you will understand that we, as her family can not simply abandon her".

The fate of the 19-year-old has triggered fierce debate in Britain, with the government telling her family this week that it was revoking her citizenship.

In the letter, Renu Begum says none of the family has had any contact with Shamima, but they have watched her on television "set fire to our nation's emotions".

Her family have written to the Home Secretary asking for his help to bring her newborn son to Britain.

Kelly charged in Cook County with sexually abusing four alleged victims
However, the attention surrounding accusations against him has skyrocketed following Lifetime's January docuseries Surviving R. Kelly , who is accused of brainwashing multiple women and holding them hostage as part of a sex cult, has denied the charges.

Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn criticised the "very extreme" move and said Shamima Begum has a "right to return" to the United Kingdom, where she should face questioning.

In a letter to Sajid Javid they said the boy should not "lose the privilege" of being raised here.

THE brother-in-law of ISIS bride Shamima Begum has urged the public to get behind the decision to revoke her British citizenship. Asked whether she could change or be rehabilitated, she said: "I am willing to change".

Ben Wallace, Britain's security minister, told the on Thursday that Begum could face prosecution if she returns Britain.

Technically, removing Begum's citizenship would render her stateless, an act not allowed under worldwide law.

Rahman said what happens to Shamima, who he last spoke to when she was very young, "doesn't affect my life".

"They are making an example of me". However, her family won an appeal. Now, she wants to come home.

They also asked for assistance in bringing her newborn baby to the UK.

The government have said that the Home Secretary can strip a person of their citizenship, but only "if the person would not be left stateless as a result".

Begum said she did not know the whereabouts of Amira Abase, her classmate who travelled with her to Syria, however the third girl, Kadiza Sultana, is believed to have died.
