Britain has retracted citizenship from more two women individual who joined ISIS terror group in Syria, leaving the fate of their children in uncertainty. The disclosure maintains a stand over the same kind of judgment relating the issue of citizenship of Shamima Begum, the London teenager whose newborn baby died in a refugee camp in Syria in the last week.
30 years old Reema Iqbal along with her sister 28 years old Zara left East London for Syria in 2013 and with them now five boys under the age of eight.
Mentioning the legal sources, the documentation informed that British citizenship has been stripped from the two ISIS brides. British interior ministry did not comment on these individual cases. According to a representative, “ Any decisions to deprive individuals of their citizenship are based on all available evidence and not taken lightly”.
Shamima Begum who married Dutch IS fighter was spotted by the journalists in a refugee camp after making off fighting between the US-backed forces and the terror group.
She had requested to came back to Britain along with her baby, after her two other children died under ISIS rule.
British interior minister Sajid Javid retracted her citizenship due to pacify the security concerns but has been condemned for not doing more to help her son. British law describes that the government can not rescind the citizenship of a person if that would make them stateless.
Shamima Begum was pondered to be eligible for Bangladeshi citizenship through her parents but Dhaka clearly proclaimed about the impossibility of her Bangladeshi citizenship.
Previously Javid has told that more than 100 individuals had already been stripped of their British citizenship.
