孟加拉国外长阿拉姆近日就孟加拉裔的 " 圣战新娘 " 沙米玛?贝居姆表态，称其如果返回孟加拉，则会被立即处以绞刑。
据英国独立电视台 ITV 报道，这是孟加拉政府首次就孟加拉裔 " 圣战新娘 " 一事面对媒体镜头公开表态。
Bangladesh's Foreign Minister has told ITV News that Shamima Begum is not his country's problem.
Abdul Momen said if she did go to Bangladesh after being stripped of her British citizenship she could be hanged for terrorism.
"We have nothing to do with Shamima Begum. She is not a Bangladeshi citizen," he said.
"She never applied for Bangladesh citizenship. She was born in England and her mother is British."
"If anyone is found to be involved with terrorism, we have a simple rule, there will be capital punishment. And nothing else."
"She will be put in prison and immediately, the rule is, she should be hanged."
" ( 来孟加拉的话 ) 她会立即被关进监狱，按照法律被处以绞刑。"

阿里强调，孟加拉国对恐怖主义 " 零容忍 " ( zero tolerance ) ，并且是 " 消灭恐怖分子的典范 " ( model in eliminating all terrorists ) 。同时，孟加拉国也支持所有其他国家制止恐怖主义的蔓延。
Bangladeshi law includes a right of "citizenship by descent" to anyone who is born to a Bangladeshi parent.
孟加拉国法律规定，任何父母为孟加拉人的人都有 " 继承公民身份 " 的权利。
"Once they reach the age of 21 that citizenship lapses unless they actively seek to retain."
" 这一身份会在该公民年满 21 岁，且未主动提出保留的情况下自动失效。"

这么说来，19 岁的沙米玛申请孟加拉国籍是有理有据的。但是孟加拉外交国务部长沙赫里亚尔?阿拉姆 ( Shahriar Alam ) 随即措辞强硬地回应道：沙米玛非孟加拉公民，也从未向孟加拉申请过双重国籍。
"The government of Bangladesh is deeply concerned that [ Begum ] has been erroneously identified as a holder of dual citizenship," Shahriar Alam, the state minister of foreign affairs, said in a statement issued to the Guardian, adding that his government had learned of Britain ’ s intention to cancel her citizenship rights from media reports.
孟加拉外交国务部长沙赫里亚尔?阿拉姆在发给《卫报》的一份声明中表示：" 孟加拉国政府对于沙米玛被错误地认定为双重国籍一事表示关切。" 他补充说， ( 英政府事先并未与孟政府进行磋商 ) 他们也是从媒体报道中才得知英国打算剥夺沙米玛的公民身份。
"Bangladesh asserts that Ms Shamima Begum is not a Bangladeshi citizen. She is a British citizen by birth and never applied for dual nationality with Bangladesh … There is no question of her being allowed to enter into Bangladesh."
" 孟加拉国重申沙米玛女士不是孟加拉国公民。她出生时是英国公民，从未向孟加拉国申请过双重国籍 ... 她能否被允许进入孟加拉国是个显而易见的事。"
"I wasn't born in Bangladesh, I've never seen Bangladesh and I don't even speak Bengali properly, so how can they claim I have Bangladeshi citizenship," she said.
她说：" 我不是在孟加拉出生的，也从没去过孟加拉，甚至连孟加拉语都不会说，他们怎么能声称我是孟加拉公民呢 ?"
