Britain strips Abu Hamza’s son of his passport

Sufiyan Mustafa

The son of the jailed preacher Abu Hamza has had his British passport taken from him, leaving him stranded in Syria.

Sufiyan Mustafa, 22, left the UK to fight for the rebels in 2013 after his father was jailed in the US for terrorist offences. But after he left, the Home Office stripped him of his identification, meaning he can no longer return home.

Mustafa told the Al-Quds Arabic newspaper he has appealed to be allowed back into the UK. “Britain is the place where I was born and lived,” he said. “I have never been a threat to national security in Britain and will not commit aggression on its population because our religion does not allow attacks on unarmed innocents.”

Earlier this month, Abu Hamza’s youngest son appeared in a video denouncing ISIS and the actions of Assad’s government.

In the video, he said: “There is no solution to the Syrian situation while Assad is in power… if you want to help then shine a light on the atrocities carried out by Bashar Assad, the Russians and ISIS. It is very unfair for the West to judge Muslims by the actions of Al Qaeda, ISIS or Hizbollah. If that is fair then all Muslims have the right to view all Christians as crusaders or Americans as Charles Manson.”

Abu Hamza is currently serving a life sentence in a high security prison in Florence, Colorado, for terrorism offences.
