Husband of two sisters who took their nine children and fled to join ISIS terrorists in Syria last week, claimed that UK police has promoted and encouraged the radicalization of three sisters to join ISISI.
According to the reports the Husbands ‘Mohammad Shoaib’ and Akhtar Iqbal have written to the Home and Foreign secretaries, and chairman of the Home Affair Committee.
Both claimed that UK police is a party to send their wives along with their children, aged nine to fifteen towards IS by encouraging contact with their radicalized brother in Syria. However the UK senior officers rejected the claim.
In letter, lawyers of petitioners claimed ‘We are alarmed by the fact that the police have been actively promoting and encouraging contact with the brother-in-law of our clients whom, it is believed, is fighting in Syria.
‘It would appear that there has been a reckless disregard as to the consequences of any such contact on the families. ‘Plainly the North East Counter-Terrorism Unit (Nectu) has been complicit in the grooming and radicalizing of the women.’
The Prime Minister of UK had also called on relatives to stop blaming police and the security services for failing to prevent British teenagers travelling to Syria.
Tory MP Peter Bone echoed Mr Cameron’s views, saying: ‘It is frankly foolish to accuse the police of being involved in grooming or radicalising of these women.‘These women apparently chose to go to Syria and take their children with them”, he added.
Both appealed to their wives on media to come back. The public appeal was picked up by media around the world.
