‘Mad Hatter’ terror teen’s dad slams social services for letting Safaa Boular live with mum before bomb plot on London

THE dad of the terror teen guilty of plotting to attack London has slammed social services for letting her live with her mum.

Safaa Boular's father blames her home life for putting the 18-year-old on a path to extremism that ended with her, her mum and sister convicted at the Old Bailey.

The 52-year-old told the Mail Online: "It started in the house. If my children lived among other kids, free like everybody else's, then none of this would've happened.

"Whatever they have done is to please the mother. If the mother is happy, they’re happy. If they went against her will, then they would see a huge punishment."

"Social services failed to do their job."

The 18-year-old was part of the UK's first all-woman terror cell who planned an Alice in Wonderland themed machine gun and bomb massacre at the capital's British Museum.

The UK's youngest convicted female terrorist came up with the plan after her passport was seized to stop her joining her ISIS fighter husband Naweed Hussain, 32, in Raqqa, Syria

The UK's youngest female terrorist was just 16 when she was radicalised online by her ISIS fighter fiancé Naweed Hussain, 32, who fled to Syria in June 2015.

She bonded with the British Pakistani - who also tried to groom ex-Page Three girl and glamour model Kimberley Miners, 27 - on Instagram and over TV quiz show Deal or No Deal.

The schoolgirl initially planned to join him in war-torn Raqqa where they would carry out a suicide attack and die "holding hands".

But her plans were foiled when Hussain was killed in an airstrike and she was arrested after a family holiday to Morocco.

She then encouraged her sister Rizlaine Boular, 22, and mother, Mina Dich, 44, to carry out a knife attack in Westminster in order to "carry the torch forward."

The terror trio referred to their plot as an "English tea party" and used Alice in Wonderland themes as code for the attack including "having a mad hatter tea party."

In one conversation, Rizlaine told Safaa: "Hopefully we can have really fancy, proper like English tea party, kind of thing." Safaa said: "Alice in Wonderland theme?

"You can be the Mad Hatter cause your hair’s crazy.

Dramatic video shows armed cops arresting Rizlaine after she was shot twice in the stomach during a raid.

On her mobile phones, cops found jihadi images and videos including material from radical preachers Anjem Choudry, Mohammed Mizanur Rahman who have been convicted of inviting support for ISIS, Trevor Brookes and Khalid Yasin.

Rizlaine admitted planning a knife attack on London and Dich has pleaded guilty to assisting her in February.

Family friend Khawla Barghouthi, 21, admitted knowing about the knife attack but failing to tip off security services.

Safaa, who lived at home with her mother in Vauxhall, South West London, denied two counts of preparing acts of terrorism and seeking assistance in carrying out a terror act.

But following an eight week trial at the Old Bailey, Boular was found guilty.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Dean Haydon said the mum and daughter terrorist cell was highly dangerous.

He said:"This case started with the youngest daughter, Safaa Boular, who was certainly planning to commit an attack here in London

"When she was subsequently arrested the mother and the other daughter then took her place.

"So yes, a really concerning and unusual case that involves a family unit who were intent on committing a terrorist attack."

Dich, of Vauxhall, South West London, and Rizlaine, of Clerkenwell, Central London, admitted engaging in preparation for terrorist acts whilst Barghouti, of Harlesden, North West London, admitted failing to disclose information about an act of terrorism.

The trio will be sentenced on June 15. Safaa will be sentenced at a later date.
