Family of Brit ISIS jihadi ‘Hungry Hamza’ beg for him to be brought back to UK from Syria


THE family of Brit jihadi ‘Hungry Hamza’ have called for him to be brought back to the UK.

Hamza Parvaz, 26, aka Abu Hamza al-Britani, left for Syria at the age of 19.

Parvaz got his nickname as he was teased by fellow jihadis for his bulging waistline and love of cakes.

He was also known for his bizarre posts. In one he took a photo armed and eating ice cream in the Iraqi city of Mosul when it was held by ISIS.

In another, he hailed the “golden era of jihad”, adding: “What are we doing sitting in the UK?…It’s not the land for us.”

But now he claims he never bought into the ISIS ideology.

And his family have now told The Mirror they will “always hate what he did”, but have called for him to face justice in Britain.

Parvez is married to a Canadian-Pakistani woman, who is also in prison in Syria. The pair have two children together.


His parents Mohammed and Riaz want his citizenship restored, and hope his  young children can be brought up in North West London.

One of his loved ones who asked not to be named said “he has to come back”.

She told the newspaper he is not as high profile as the two ISIS Beatles, so “it’s only fair he comes back and is punished in some type of way”.

Parvez has admitted knowing infamous ISIS executioner Mohammed Emwazi – a fellow Londoner dubbed Jihadi John who was killed in drone strikes.

He was from an affluent neighbourhood in West London, where he reportedly attended Holland Park School.

He worked as an accountant for a hotel before he was radicalised and was the first British citizen known to be fighting with ISIS in Iraq.

After telling his family he was moving to Germany to “study”, he joined the brainwashed death cult and appeared in their twisted propaganda videos.

It comes after the family of the Brit jihadi bride Samia Hussein called for her to be helped back to the UK.

Hussein was left badly injured after an alleged British or US drone missile strike during her five years with ISIS.

The 25-year-old is thought to be in al-Hol camp in northern Syria, where she called her family three weeks ago to tell them she was alive but mutilated.

ISIS bride Shamima Begum, 19, remains stuck in the al-Roj camp.

She fled from Britain to join the terror group, and then from ISIS as coalition forces closed in on its last stronghold in Baghuz, northern Syria.

She had hoped to escape the squalor of the camp and be repatriated back to Britain but the Home Office revoked her British citizenship.
