JIHADI bride Shamima Begum’s lawyer has whined she is being treated ‘worse than the Nazis’ as he calls for her to be able to bring her newborn son back to the UK. Tasnime Akunjee said even mass murderers were given ‘due process’ as a fierce debate rages on over whether she should be allowed to return to Britain. Shamima Begum smiled as she was interviewed about her time in Syria Shamima Begum gave birth in a Syrian refugee camp over the weekend He told The Times: “The Nazis had the Nuremberg trials. They were given due process. This girl was a victim when she went out there at 15 years old. “Our politicians are saying that he should be denied protections and due process that would have been granted to Nazis.” The 19-year-old smirked through an interview on Sky News in which she said it would be “really hard” to rehabilitate in UK – and boasted she had a “good time” in Syria. She begged to return to Britain last week after giving birth to a baby boy in a refugee camp. The 19-year-old who fled the UK in 2015 claims she “never did anything dangerous” and whined: “I can’t live in this camp forever”. [quote credit=”ISIS bride Shamima Begum”]In a way, yes, but I don’t regret it because it’s changed me as a person. It’s made me stronger, tougher, you know.[/quote] Asked if she felt she made a mistake travelling to Syria, she said: “In a way, yes, but I don’t regret it because it’s changed me as a person. It’s made me stronger, tougher, you know. “I married my husband, I wouldn’t have found someone like him back in the UK. “I had my kids, I did have a good time there, just at the end things got harder and I couldn’t take it any more. “When I went to Syria I was just a housewife for the entire four years. I never did anything dangerous. I never made propaganda. I never encouraged people to come to Syria.” The runaway schoolgirl said she wasn’t fazed by seeing severed heads in the bin, claiming it “made her stronger.” She said she had been seduced to run away by ISIS videos online. And speaking to Sky News next to her newborn son she said people “should have sympathy towards me for everything I have been through”. DANGERS OF RETURN She added: “I didn’t know what I was getting into when I left. “I was hoping that maybe for the sake of me and my child they’d let me come back. “Because I can’t live in this camp forever, it’s just not possible. She added she doesn’t have a phone or access to the internet, and that the last journalist she spoke to contacted her family for her. She apologised to her parents for leaving the UK saying it was “a big slap in the face to them”. [quote credit=”Mohammed Shafiq” credit-meta=”Chief Executive of the Ramadhan Foundation”]Shamima needs to show humility and condemn IS[/quote] MPs and Muslim groups warned of the danger of welcoming back the mum – who has not shown any remorse since she was found in Syrian refugee camp last week. Tory David TC Davies told The Sun: “I would be very cautious about letting her come back – She doesn’t seem to be expressing any regret for what she has done. “The only thing she regrets is that ISIS lost.” Mr Mohammed Shafiq, Chief Executive of the Ramadhan Foundation, added: “Shamima needs to show humility, condemn IS and promise to work to return back to the mainstream of Islam which totally rejects their barbaric practices and propaganda.” DESPERATE TO COME HOME The Brit, 19, fled to Syria when she was 15, with two friends from Bethnal Green high school, East London, and married a Dutch ISIS fighter. She was found by a Times journalist last week in a refugee camp. The 19-year-old, who has called herself “weak” for wanting to return to her home country, had previously given birth to two children who died from malnutrition. She told The Times she didn’t regret joining the murderous cult but is now desperate to return home and have her baby with the support of the NHS. She said: “I’m scared this baby is going to get sick in this camp. That’s why I really want to get back to Britain. Because I know it will be taken care of, health wise at least.” Her family, who believe she was groomed, pleaded for her to be allowed back to the UK “as a matter of urgency”. Her eldest sister Renu told ITV News she was desperate for her sibling to come home. She said: “We hope the British Government will help us bring her home to us where she belongs.” It is understood that should Begum make her way back to Britain, she will face legal proceedings by social services to safeguard her child. She said she expected to be charged with terrorism offences and to be the subject of intense media attention, but was desperate not to be separated from her baby. FLED TO JOIN ISIS IN 2015 Begum left London in February 2015 with two school friends to follow another classmate to Syria. She said one friend, Kadiza Sultana, had died in an airstrike but the other Bethnal Green girls, Amira Abase and Sharmeena Begum, had stayed with ISIS in Baghuz. She said she feared she will never see her husband, the Dutch jihadist Yago Riedijk again, whom she still loved “very much”. Riedijk, 26, a convert to Islam who grew up in a middle-class family home in Arnhem, is suspected by police of being involved in a terrorist plot in the Netherlands. He was convicted in his absence last year of membership of a terrorist group. Questions have been raised over whether Britain would be able to prevent Begum’s eventual return to the UK. Shamima’s parents are consulting their lawyer about legal action against the government to force it to allow the teenager back into the country. Home Secretary Sajid Javid has warned he “will not hesitate” to prevent the return of Britons who travelled to join ISIS. [article-rail-section title=”Most read in news” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”recent” /] However the government’s tough stance was undermined when Alex Younger, the head of MI6, said British citizens “have a right to come to the UK”. Diane Abbott, the shadow home secretary, said anyone linked to terrorist groups “should be fully investigated and where appropriate prosecuted” but added: “We are not in favour of making people stateless.” Chief executive of counter-extremism organisation Quilliam, Haras Rafiq, said he “absolutely” understood the public would be concerned about the prospect of Begum’s return, but the “intellectual and right thing to do” was for her to go before the courts.
