Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen has turned down any possibility of accepting British citizen Shamima Begum, who moved from London to Syria earlier to join IS.

“Bangladesh will not accept British citizen and IS member Shamima Begum. She has no relation with Bangladesh,” he said.

The Minister said this while replying to a question from journalists on Saturday afternoon in Sylhet.

Not only Shamima, anyone involved in militancy will not be allowed to enter the country, Momen said.

The government of the United Kingdom revoked the citizenship of Shamima Begum because of her radicalisation in line with the IS outfit in Syria.
