BAN ISIS: Parliamentary Petition SMASHES 500k Signatures

PETITION to ban Jihadi brides like Shamima Begum has passed half a million signatures.

It calls simply for all former members of ISIS to be stripped of their British citizenship and have their passports removed.

Last night, Home Secretary Sajid Javid revoked Shamima Begum’s British citizenship.

Begum’s family have responded by threatening legal action on the grounds that she will now be rendered “stateless” which they argue makes the move illegal under International Law.

However, the British Nationality Act (1981) gives the Home Secretary power to revoke British citizenship if it is deemed “conducive to the public good” to do so and there is little doubt that the public outcry over Begum’s case forced Sajid Javid’s hand in this case. In its initial reply to the petition said that while it would do everything to keep Britain safe, an individual could not be legally rendered stateless.

The Petitions Committee which is a cross-party backbench body of MPs will now consider the petition for debate in the Commons.

    She made her choice, she went knowing full well that ISIS is a known terrorist organization, not only that she took an active part of it by all accounts beheading captives and having children to an active terrorist. This, in my opinion, is a full-on commitment to the ISIS cause of murder and terrorism. To take her back to England would surely send out the wrong signals to others who decide on her actions.
