Some Muslim parents would NOT report their children if they travelled to Syria to join ISIS because they don’t trust the police, claims new study

More than 800 young British Muslims have travelled to Syria and Iraq to fight with ISIS jihadists who have carried out beheadings, massacres and rapes.

The study of 20 parents by academics at Birmingham City University adds fresh weight to mounting concerns that large numbers of Muslim families are turning a blind eye when their children are radicalised.

It follows a poll in April which found two in three would not tell police if they knew that someone was involved in supporting terrorism in Syria – equating to around 2million of the nearly 3million British Muslims.
