'Fanatic' Brit-Pakistani woman jailed for 8yrs over bomb plot against Jews
London, July 21 (ANI): A Pakistani-origin woman in Britain has been jailed for eight years after being charged for helping her husband in a bomb plot against the Jewish community in Manchester.
Thirty-eight-year-old Shaista Khan, who is a hairdresser, became a fanatic within weeks of marrying car cleaner, a converted Muslim, Muhammad Khan, 33.
According to The Daily Times, the couple planned to build a DIY bomb using chapati flour, hairdressing chemicals and a set of Christmas tree lights to launch a terror attack.
A UK court heard that they also carried out reconnaissance missions on possible targets, including a synagogue.
According to the report, Shaista used her home-based hairdressing business called 'Sassy Hair Studio' as a front to seek targets as part of a "personal jihad".
The court heard that Shaista and her husband started reading and listening to al Qaeda-inspired propaganda after their wedding.
According to the report, the plot to bomb the Jewish community fell apart when police were called to a domestic incident, and Shaista's brother told them Khan was a "home-grown terrorist". (ANI)
