Wife of Would-Be Jihadi Told Him to 'Go and Die' in Syria, Court Hears

Mashudur Choudhury, who faces terror charges, allegedly tried to persuade family to go to Syria with him

The wife of a would-be jihadi who allegedly travelled to Syria to join a terror training camp told him to "go and die" in a row after he tried to persuade his family to join him, a court heard on Wednesday.

Mashudur Choudhury, 31, a father of two from Portsmouth, allegedly told his wife the family should migrate and get away from the "filth" around them. But when she heard it was Syria he wanted to move to, she is said to have replied: "Syria? No … You want to go and die in the battlefield, go and die, I really mean it, just go. I will be relieved at last."

Choudhury denies the charge of engaging in conduct in preparation for acts of terrorism by travelling to Syria to join a terror training camp in October last year.

He was one of five men from Portsmouth who travelled to Syria via Turkey last October, the Crown says. The men left in the wake of another self-confessed jihadi from Portsmouth, Ifthekar Jaman, who the court heard had fought and probably died in Syria with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis).

Alison Morgan, prosecuting, told Kingston crown court that the case was not about the rights and wrongs of events in Syria.

You know your marriage isn’t going well when your wife starts dropping hints about martyrdom.
