In Plaistow, London (E13), a woman named Farzana Anjum Khan lives with her daughters Shehtaz M Khan, Pinas M Khan and Parisa Pinaz Khan. For past few years, her husband, a notorious criminal and funder of Islamic State (ISIS), Lt Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan has also been residing with her in Britain. To Britons, this family may look like just another “innocent family” from South Asia. But in reality, they are jihadist – more precisely members, patrons and funders of Islamic Stats (ISIS). In the same address, there is another individual named Julia, who is a girlfriend of Shahid Uddin Khan. It is even believed that, Julia is fact is Shahid’s second wife. Julia’s ex husband was a member of Muslim Brotherhood. Athough Shahid’s daughters look to be extremely modern and even are habitual alcoholics; all of them are extremely radicalized. In their social media accounts, these girls are promoting radical Islam and madrassa education.
Britain already is affected by the rise of radical Islam. While the British authorities are actively combating militancy and radical Islam, it is a matter of grave surprise as to how the family of Lt. Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan is allowed to reside in that country and promote radical Islam.
In Bangladesh, Shahid Uddin Khan, his wife and daughters are known as fraudsters as well as on January 17, 2019, during a raid at the Dhaka residence of this sacked military officer, members of the counter-terrorism unit of Bangladesh Police had recovered huge volume of arms, ammunition, explosives, detonators, counterfeit currency notes and propaganda materials of Islamic State. For many years, Shahid Uddin Khan has been funding ISIS.
There also are specific allegations against Shahid Uddin Khan, Farzana Anjum Khan, Shehtaz M Khan, Pinas M Khan and Parisa Pinaz Khan for smuggling out millions of dollars from Bangladesh and investing in a number of business ventures in United Arab Emirates and United Kingdom. British authorities did not check the source of the money Shahid and his family had invested for obtaining immigration under investor’s category.
Lt. Col (sacked) Shahid Uddin Khan also is accused of having connections with Qatar, a terror-patron nation.
