Common sense is hard to come by these days. However, running away to join ISIS without thinking of the repercussions is another level.

ISIS bride Shamima Begum has had her British citizenship stripped by the U.K. government after begging to be allowed home.

An official Home Office letter breaking the shocking news was received by the teen’s “disappointed” family earlier Tuesday.

“Please find enclosed papers that relate to a decision taken by the Home Secretary, to deprive your daughter, Shamima Begum, of her British citizenship,” the letter read.

“In light of the circumstances of your daughter, the notice of the Home Secretary’s decision has been served of file today (19th February), and the order removing her British citizenship has subsequently been made.”

The letter – obtained by ITV News  – went on to urge Ms Begum’s family to make her aware of the decision while adding she had the right to appeal.

The schoolgirl’s family have said they are “disappointed” by the Home Office’s decision, according to their lawyer Tasnime Akunjee.




  1. Not upset by their daughter joining ISIS but upset by not letting her back in?? She could well be a sleeper agent now! I am all for forgiveness because I have needed it myself but I NEVER joined THE ENEMY!! The US has at least one too but SHE should be in GITMO!

    • She does not belong here in the usa. She knew what she was doing and now she has to pay the price.besides that could you really trust her anymore? All these women who joined isis don’ t bother to try and come back. You are nothing but trouble!

  2. Sometimes we have to live (or not) with our bad choices. I would say this is the worst, choosing the enemy. Long ago, you were hung when committing treason.

  3. A very stupid young woman…thought she could support the Enemy of the UK, and then, when it no longer suited her, she could just come back, and all would be forgiven. Wrong!!! on so many levels. The UK has given this woman and her parents a safe place to live, and her parents…what were they thinking when they allowed her to go to ISIS??? Or…were they even thinking??? Sorry folks, the Brisish Govt has spoken, and given that you threw their largesse in their faces, give me one good reason why you should ever be allowed back into the UK??? You chose ISIS, so stay with ISIS, that can be your future now. If your silly parents are upset, let them join you in the ISIS held areas of the Middle East as it is likely where you all belong anyway.
