A BRIT pharmacist banged up in Syria for treating ISIS fanatics has begged to come back to Britain – and bring his jihadi wife and two kids with him.
Disgraced Mohammed Anwar Miah, who renamed himself Abu Obayda al-Britannia, fled Birmingham in 2014 to sneak into ISIS-held territory.
But the 40-year-old claims he never swore allegiance to the barbarous terror group and insists he was there for “humanitarian work”, Daily Mail reports.
Miah is now pleading to come back to the UK – weeks after 19-year-old jihadi bride Shamima Begum also begged to return home from Syria.
He said: “I want to go home. I’m proud to be British. Britain has got good human rights and that is a good thing.
“In an ideal situation I would like to take my wife and my children back to Britain with me and just live a normal life.
“If she can live there and she’s not allowed health care OK so be it. I’ve never claimed any benefits in my life. I’ve always worked for a living and paid taxes.”
‘THEY CAN PUNISH ME’
Miah lived in the ISIS-controlled town of Mayadin for four years where he claims he worked as an orthopaedic surgeon before escaping with his wife and nine-month-old daughter in August.
He became separated from them after they were picked up by the Syrian Democratic Forces. His wife was pregnant at the time and he has never met his second daughter.
Miah, who now says his little girls are British, insists he is “not a danger to the public” and claimed he would go on a “rehabilitation programme”.
He added: “If they want to punish me, they can punish me. If they want to monitor me I have no problem. I am in remorse for coming to Syria and if I could go back in time I wouldn’t come to Syria.”
Miah, who had a Bangladeshi mum, fled Britain after being struck off the pharmacist register for inventing “phantom” employees.
DIDN’T SEE BRUTAL VIOLENCE
He crossed the border from Turkey into Syria in 2014 – days after US journalist James Foley was beheaded by Jihadi John.
But the medic claims he never heard of any brutal violence before he set off – and says he didn’t even realise the town he spent four years in was the scene of grisly executions.
Miah also told the newspaper he never knowingly treated an ISIS fighter – but swiftly changed his mind when pushed and said it “probably” happened.
He is one of six suspected jihadi Brits being held by the Kurdish-led SDF – along with two members of the infamous Beatles gang who are responsible for beheading British hostages.
In September last year, he was filmed wearing a blindfold as he was questioned by captors near Hajin in Deir ez-Zur, a province on the Iraq border.

His plea to come back to the UK comes after Begum was stripped of her British citizenship after showing no remorse for feeling East London to join the terror group.
The ISIS bride lives with her week-old son Jerah – named after a 7th century Islamic warlord – in a Syrian refugee camp.
She this week finally claimed she was truly sorry for ditching East London at 15 to join up with the brutal ISIS death cult.
