THE controversy over Isis bride Shamima Begum has raged on this week.

Having left the UK at the age of 15 to join the terror organisation, the 19-year-old has just given birth to a son in a Syrian refugee camp.

She is seemingly unrepentant about the choices she has made but now wants to come back to the UK where she feels she and her child will be better looked after.

She also incited anger when she said the Manchester Arena bombing and other terror attacks in the UK in which civilians were killed are retribution for allied bombings of Isis targets in which women and children died.

While the British government was unable to stop her returning outright, her British citizenship has been revoked, preventing her coming back.

Whether or not people feel she was groomed to join Isis five years ago, it is her apparent attitude now that is causing concern. She pledged to join a cause that murders innocent people ­— apparently in the name of Islam.

If she was apologetic now, or said she had made a mistake, it would go some way towards people forgiving her, or at least understanding her position.

But this is someone who married an Isis fighter and is still apparently loyal to the cause.

The police in this country regularly arrest people suspected of belonging to terror organisations.

What would happen to her if she was allowed to return? Would she be arrested and detained, or be allowed to carry on living a free life?

And what about her son? While she has been stripped of her citizenship, the rights of her young son are unaffected, the Home Secretary has said.

Communities such as Bury have been directly affected by Isis and the Manchester Arena attack.

It would be difficult for a community that has experiences loss such as this to welcome someone like that back to the UK.
