In February 2015, Amira Abase (15*), #ShamimaBegum (16*) & Kadiza Sultana (15*), travelled to #Syria from UK via Turkey. They went to become "#ISIS brides". Till this day, I still don't know how they were not stopped or questioned at any port of exit/entry.

*At the time
The reason I say this, is that few weeks later after the girls left the UK, I was travelling back to the UK from Jordan, via Turkey. When I got to the UK, I was detained under #Schedule7 of the #Terrorism Act 2000.

Police said because I was alone & had come from Turkey & Jordan, & taking into account foreigners (#Muslims) using those countries to enter Syria, they wanted to have a chat. During the questioning, I was asked about my opinion of the 3 girls (I heard in the news about them).
