Babar Ahmad is “entitled to return to the UK,” says the Home Office. Of course. What harm could possibly be done by his return? Look at his statement below: there is no indication whatsoever that he has renounced his former path, and clearly Ahmad is poised to join the Muslim victimhood circuit, which is a large-scale endeavor to discredit and halt counter-terror efforts by claiming that Muslims have been unjustly victimized by them. But that is fine with the Home Office: the only people they want to keep out of Britain are foes of jihad terror.
“British terrorist who supported Taliban slips back into UK after release from US jail,” by Greg Heffer, Express, July 19, 2015 (thanks to Lookmann):
Babar Ahmad was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years in prison in July last year after pleading guilty to supporting a number of terror groups, including the Taliban.
The 41-year-old had spent 10 years behind bars in Britain following his arrest in 2004 before losing a long battle against extradition to the US.
Following his recent release from a US jail Ahmad, who was born in Tooting, south London, is believed to have returned to Britain in secret last week.
Welcoming his return to the UK, his family said in a statement: “We, the family of Babar Ahmad, are delighted to announce that by the grace of God Babar has returned home to us after 11 years in prison.
“Our lives will be enriched by his return.”
As will the lives of many Infidels, no doubt.
Despite initially denying terrorism charges following his extradition in 2012, he later pleaded guilty to setting up a group of pro-jihadi websites to raise money, recruit fighters and organise supplies for terror groups including the Taliban and Chechen mujaheddin.
It has been reported that British counter-terrorism officers are now considering measures to monitor Babar.
Ahmad, who fought in the Bosnian war during the early 1990s, said in a statement: “Eleven years of solitary confinement and isolation in 10 different prisons has been an experience too profound to sum up in a few words here and now.
“In October 2012, I was blindfolded, shackled and forcibly stripped naked when I was extradited to the US.
“Last week, US and UK government officials treated me with courtesy and respect during my journey home. Today, I have absolutely nothing. Yet I am rich. All praise be to God.
“In time I look forward to sharing reflections on my experience to help inform others.
“I recognise that the world has moved on since 2004, yet in some ways sadly it has failed to progress.
“For now, I intend to reconnect privately with my incredible family, to whom I owe so much.”…
Ahmad was released on June 19 and is “entitled to return to the UK”, according to the Home Office.
“Babar Ahmad was extradited to the US on October 5, 2012 for trial on terrorism offences,” a spokesman said.
“He subsequently pleaded guilty to conspiracy and providing material to support terrorism and was sentenced to 12-and-a-half years’ imprisonment.
“Ahmad had used every opportunity, over eight years, to frustrate and delay the extradition process but he finally faced justice and was put behind bars.
“The sentence he was given by the US courts concluded on June 19.
“As a UK citizen, Ahmad is entitled to return to the UK.”
