There’s another twist that occurred in the story of ISIS bride Shamima Begum. Britain were hoping to ship her to another country as a citizen, now they have denied her the citizenship even.
Due to her family, Begum had dual citizenship with Bangladesh as per the belief of The British Home Office and they wanted to renounce her British Citizenship in favor of her Bangladeshi one. A country cannot make a citizen stateless by revoking them of their citizenship. So Britain cannot do this as Bangladesh declared that she doesn’t hold dual citizenship.
The state minister of foreign affairs in Bangladesh said:
“The government of Bangladesh is extremely concerned about this whole situation about Begum’s dual citizenship.”
“She is not a citizen of Bangladesh. She is by birth a British citizen and did not ever applied for dual nationality.”
“Her being allowed to enter Bangladesh, that’s a no go.”
Now things will get awkward for Sajid Javid. On 20th Feb 2019 he reiterated his policy of revoking her citizenship and not allowing Begum back to the country. Don’t know how he will get away with this. Her baby’s right won’t be affected, he said. But how will he transport the baby to the country from all the way to Syria? More news on this, will be coming up soon.
