London - In a case involving home-grown terrorists, a British husband and wife duo of Pakistani origin, who were plotting to carry out a terrorist attack in Manchester were on Friday sentenced to jail for nearly 8 years each, the police said.
Hairdresser Shasta Khan, 38, and her husband Mohammed Sajid Khan, 34, were believed to have been in the early stages of building an improvised explosive device to target Jewish communities in Manchester.
Khan was born in Pakistan but was raised a British national from the age of 4, while Shasta Khan was born in the United Kingdom and her marriage to Khan was her third.
The two met on a Muslim dating website in July 2010 and married on August 10, 2010.
The police say that they were quickly radicalised and by November 2010 were listening to extremist al-Qaeda material.
Shasta Khan, who was convicted of engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism and two counts of possessing a record of information likely to be useful to a person committing or preparing an act of terrorism following a trial, was jailed for eight years. Mohammed Sajid Khan, who pleaded guilty to engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism must serve a minimum of seven and a half years before being considered eligible for parole.
The police said that between March and July 2011, the couple began to access online bomb-making manuals and acquired household items which could be used to construct an explosive device. Their plan was unravelled after police were initially called to reports of a domestic assault, but a family member intimated that possible terrorist acts were being committed and the counter-terrorism probe was launched.

The Brits are going to have to do alot more to save themselves. And so are we.
Considering the history of the Brits when it comes to Jews, I’m surprised that these miscreants were even arrested.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I too would want to be a suicide bomber if I was married to that one.
Thats some crap history youve been reading.
