    Islamic State terrorist Khaled Sharrouf, whose little son shocked the world by holding up the severed head of a soldier in a picture, has become the first Australian to be stripped of citizenship under the country’s anti-terrorism laws, a report says.
    A spokeswoman for Australian Immigration Minister Peter Dutton told AAP that a person had been stripped of their Australian citizenship, while declining to name the individual, but the Australian newspaper has identified him as 35-year-old dual-national Sharrouf.


    ‘US gave ISIS escape route from Mosul to Syria; now civilians are paying the price’
    Under a 2015 law, Australia may strip dual nationals of their citizenship if they have carried out terrorist acts or been members of a banned organization.

    Sharrouf, the son of Lebanese immigrants, went to fight for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in Syria in 2013, a year after being released from prison for taking part in a terrorist plot.

    In 2014, horrifying photographs emerged on Twitter showing Sharrouf and his 7-year-old son holding up the chopped off heads of Syrian soldiers, with the caption “That’s my boy!”

    In 2015, unconfirmed reports emerged claiming that Sharrouf had been killed in a drone strike in Mosul in northern Iraq, but he is still the subject of an active arrest warrant.

    Last year, Sharrouf’s widow, Tara Nettleton, a mother-of-five who was living in Raqqa with four of her children and one grandchild, died in Syria, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

    Excellent move, I hope India sets up a similar system. And now that there is President Trump in the US, I really hope he does this as well.

    India should set up a penal colony like the british empire did with australia.
    unless another country wants them, confine the fundamentalists, criminally insane, and deviants to the andamans.
    let them live out their religious fascist fantasies there in their own communities.
    clean up civil society.
