Reacting over the report, the author wrote, “I don’t understand why Western women get attracted to an anti-women religion called Islam. Safiyya Amira Shaikh (Michelle Ramsden) converted to Islam & became a terrorist. She plotted to blow up St Paul’s Cathedral in London. Now she will be in prison for life”.

Safiyya Amira Shaikh case

Safiyya Amira Shaikh, aged 36 years, who had planned to plant a bomb to blow up St Paul’s Cathedral during Easter celebrations has been sentenced to life imprisonment.

During the planning stage, she contacted a bomb maker online and asked if he could build IEDs as she was plotting an attack. But she was caught out when the explosives expert turned out to be an undercover police officer.

She wanted to leave one bomb in the hotel and then take the other to St Paul’s. Once there, she planned to detonate the IED killing herself and slaughtering innocent visitors to the iconic site.

Although, everyone condemns the act of terrorism, people expressed anger over author’s Islamophobic tweet.
