‘She doesn’t deserve to come back to Britain’: Shamima Begum’s father says he is on the government’s side

The father of Shamima Begum has dramatically told The Mail on Sunday that he backs Home Secretary Sajid Javid’s decision to strip his daughter of her British citizenship.

Speaking to the media for the first time, Ahmed Ali, 60, said: ‘I know they [the British Government] don’t want to take her back, and in this I don’t have a problem.

‘I know she is stuck there [in Syria] but that’s because she has done actions that made her get stuck like this.’
