Usman Khan, the 28-year-old Pakistani-origin ISIS terrorist, who murdered two innocent people in a knife rampage, became a terrorist after he was reportedly ‘bullied’ by fellow students at the school, reports The Sun.
According to the reports, a fellow schoolmate of the terrorist has claimed that the Usman Khan turned a terrorist as he was bullied at school. Usman Khan’s former classmate remembers him as the ‘quietest student’ in the class, who became a recluse and only had one friend.
An anonymous classmate revealed that Khan had desperately tried to fit in and be liked at school by wearing the latest clothes but had no confidence and would never speak up. He said that Usman Khan was bullied after starting secondary school when he started to grow facial hair at an early age, before his peers.
The classmate is now shocked after he got to know that Usman Khan had become an ISIS terrorist after leaving school. Fortunately, most students who get bullied in school don’t turn to terrorism as defence mechanism. Media outlets got slammed on social media for attempting to ‘justify’ Khan becoming a terrorist because of ‘bullying’.
Please shut up w this.
Ppl don’t join ISIS because they’re bullied or because they’re unemployed or because of climate change. Just stop.
Ask him why he joined ISIS. He’ll tell you point blank it was to serve Allah.

Some even showed how despite the bullying many managed to turn around their lives and thankfully didn’t take the terrorism route.
One of my mates was bullied terribly at school.
So he studied like a bastard and became a chemist with GlaxoSmithKline.
He drives a very nice car these days. https://t.co/4cwRlo3lkh

On Friday, Pakistani-origin Usman Khan was shot dead by the London Police after he had carried out a terrorist attack by stabbing multiple people near London Bridge before being tackled to the ground by bystanders. He was wearing a fake suicide vest and was eventually shot dead by the police.
The 28-year-old Usman Khan, who killed two innocent people in London was a convicted terrorist banned from entering the capital. Khan was released from jail on condition that he obey 20 strict conditions, including not going to London. However, probation officers had granted him an exemption to attend an ex-prisoners’ conference organised by Cambridge University after wrongly believed that he had been reformed.
Shockingly, Usman Khan had previously boasted about his UK benefits while plotting a “Mumbai-style attack”. Khan and the plotters had plans to raise funds to build a terrorist training camp in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir. The group also had also planned to carry out a “Mumbai-style attack” on high-profile figures, according to court documents.
Khan was recorded by police boasting about his UK benefits could him the same amount in a day that people in Kashmir in a month. He had said, “On jobseeker’s allowance we can earn that, never mind working for that.”
Reportedly, Usman Khan’s journey to becoming a terrorist began around 2008 when he was influenced by Anjem Choudary, the hate preacher who once led the extremist group Al-Muhajiroun (ALM). Khan had become a member and was involved in activities such as distributing leaflets to convert non-Muslims.
Usman and eight other men were being watched as part of a massive counter-terrorism operation that spanned Stoke-on-Trent, Cardiff and London. The nine were plotting to kill Boris Johnson, then London’s Mayor, and blow up sites including the Stock Exchange and the London Eye but were arrested and charged in 2012.
Later, he was released under strict bail conditions in December last year, he had to wear a tag, attend deradicalisation sessions and was under surveillance by MI5.
During their trials in 2012, the secret police recordings of Khan’s desire to attack non-Muslims were presented to the court. “Bro, these kuffar [non-believers], yeah, you know these flipping dogs, yeah, these scabby kuffar, bruv, they need to get dealt with, bruv. Because they haven’t got the fear inside them no more, man,” Usman Khan had said in these recordings.
