A survivor of the Manchester Arena bombing has urged parole bosses to keep a jihadi who plotted to behead a British soldier in jail.  Who is Parviz

A survivor of the Manchester Arena bombing has urged parole bosses to keep a jihadi who plotted to behead a British soldier in jail. 

Who is Parviz Khan?

Parviz Khan, 52, was handed a life sentence in 2008 after conspiring to behead a British Muslim soldier.

He pleaded guilty to the plan and was sentenced to a minimum of 14 years behind bars, before being denied parole in early 2022.

He Planned to Film the Killing

The extremist, who planned to film himself killing his intended victim ‘like a pig’, has now been granted a Parole Board hearing date ‘in the autumn’.

‘It’s Sickening’

But Jade Clough, who was seriously injured in the 2017 suicide bombing which killed 22 people, has said the thought of him being freed is ‘horrific’.

‘If this man is released, those responsible will have blood on their hands. He is a monster’, she told The Mirror.

Ms Clough, 34, has urged the parole board to keep him locked up, adding: ‘These individuals do not deserve second chances. ‘It’s sickening. It’s disgusting he should even be considered for this’.

More About Parvis Khan

Parvis Khan was the ringleader of a group which plotted to kidnap and behead a British soldier in 2008.

His gang was later reported to be inspired by Choudary’s al-Muhajiroun network.

At trial, Mr Justice Henriques left the court in no doubt how dangerous he believed Khan to be.

What the Court Ruling Was

He told him at Leicester crown court: ‘You have been described by the Crown as a man who has the most violent and extreme Islamist views and as a fanatic.

‘Having studied over the last month, I unhesitatingly accept that description of you.

‘You not only plotted to kill a soldier, but you intended to film a most brutal killing.’

Motive of Crime Revealed

The judge said Khan’s aim was to deter any Muslim from joining the British Army.

‘This was not only a plot to kill a soldier but a plot to undermine the morale of the British Army and inhibit recruitment,’ he said.

Ms Clough also revealed her skepticism of the Government monitoring, after surviving the attack carried out by 22-year-old Salman Abedi – who was known to security services.

She told the publication: ‘Abedi was a known risk. The circumstances with Khan are similar. There have been serious warnings previously. The risk is too great’.
