Judge Gerald Gordon said Khan, who is from Willesden, northwest London, is not an ISIS supporter.

“Unlike some she is not, in my view prone to fundamentalist beliefs herself,” he said.

“I think it is more the attraction of Jafar Turay,” he added.

Turay, fled to the war-torn country in 2012 after converting to Islam. He is wanted by the British police for crimes he committed before leaving the UK.
