THE dad of a jihadi bride who fled the UK with Shamima Begum to join ISIS has argued the girls pose “no threat” and demanded they be allowed home.
But the security guard has previously been filmed on marches clutching a burning US flag as he protested alongside Michael Adebowale, one of Fusilier Lee Rigby’s killers.
He has now claimed his daughter and heavily pregnant Begum, who is begging to come home to have her baby, should be allowed to return to the UK.
Currently, the pair face up to ten years in jail if they return to Britain after running away from home in Bethnal Green, East London, in 2015.
Hussen, 52, told Sun Online: “As a father, what I say to the British government is to let these girls into the country.
“Give them some kind of teaching. As a teenager, you can do anything – I did too. They are not a threat.”
As far as I know my daughter is very charitable. So she’s very soft when she sees someone suffering
Hussen, who came from Ethiopia via Germany to UK in 1999, also said he is “glad” both his daughter and Begum are still alive as he said “come please to us”.
The dad-of-three added: “As far as I know my daughter is very charitable. So she’s very soft when she sees someone suffering. She’s generous in nature.
“Nowadays, all parents, they don’t know their children. I believe that. They don’t know them. They don’t let you know what they are doing.”
But he argued all children “are very secretive” as he remembered his daughter as “generous and a good student”
He added: “She was a very good daughter.”
‘REMEMBER HOW WE LOVE YOU’
Abase fled the UK with two Bethnal Green Academy pals, Kadiza Sultana and Begum, in February 2015.
The three girls all married ISIS fighters but Sultana was reported to have been killed in an airstrike on Raqqa in May 2016 while Abase could still be alive.
Her dad had made an emotional appeal for her to come home a week after she joined the barbarous terror group, saying: “Remember how we love you”.
Holding a teddy bear wearing a Chelsea shirt, he said his family “cannot stop crying”.
But just weeks later, pictures emerged of Hussen chanting “Allahu akbar” at a demonstration as he marched with hate preacher Anjem Choudary and Saiful Islam, who has praised Osama bin Laden.
He has constantly refused to take any responsibility for his daughter’s disappearance and has instead blamed the police, teachers, and Turkish officials.
Hussen even told MPs on the Home Affairs Select Committee that he did not to know what Islamic radicalisation is, saying: “As for me, I don’t know the symptoms even — what radicalisation is.”
BEGGING TO COME HOME
She was been discovered by a Times journalist in a Syria camp filled with refugees escaping the battle for the final ISIS stronghold.
Begum married a Dutch fighter ten days after arriving in Syria and enjoyed a “normal” life except for the “bombing and stuff”, but he is said to have surrendered himself.
She is now due to give birth to her third child, after her first two children died of starvation and illness, and wants the baby to have a decent life with her in the UK.
But the warped jihadi bride has calmly revealed grisly parts of her life with the terror group – saying that the first time she saw a severed head “didn’t faze me at all”.
She added: “It was from a captured fighter seized on the battlefield, an enemy of Islam.
“I thought only of what he would have done to a Muslim woman if he had the chance.”
Unrepentant Begum also described herself as “weak” for leaving ISIS and praised those brave enough to stay.
She added: “In the end, I just could not endure anymore. I just couldn’t take it. Now all I want to do is come home to Britain.”
But the teen slammed the group’s oppression and corruption saying they didn’t “deserve victory”.
‘I’M NOT THE SAME SILLY CHILD’
She added: “I know what everyone at home thinks of me as I have read all that was written about me online.
“But I just want to come home to have my child. I’ll do anything required just to be able to come home and live quietly with my child.”
But she insisted: “I’m not the same silly little 15-year-old schoolgirl who ran away from Bethnal Green four years ago and I don’t regret coming here.”
Anyone who returns to the UK after travelling to ISIS territory faces criminal investigation and stricter laws are now in place.
Security minister Ben Wallace told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I’m not putting at risk British people’s lives to go and look for terrorists or former terrorists in a failed state.
“There’s consular services elsewhere in the region and the strong message this Government has given for many years is that actions have consequences.”
