Hadashah Sa’adat Khan
Place of Birth: Afghanistan;
Nationality: Afghan, Australian;
Hadashah Sa’adat Khan was an isolated and withdrawn teen when she began seeking out online relationships with people who support terrorist organisation Islamic State (ISIS).
Born in Afghanistan, Khan migrated to Australia when she was nine. She left school in year 10 and was required to stay at home and assist her mother with household chores.
Feeling isolated from her community, between 2014 and 2016 she found solace in online relationships with Muslims of a similar age.
At the same time, Islamic State was rising in prominence and trying to attract and recruit young Muslim men and women from across the world.
The Melbourne woman was trying to “impress” another teenager in the US when she helped arrange for him to join the Islamic State in Syria.
Khan advised the man about what he needed to do to enter Syria and communicated with two other intermediaries to help him join the Islamic State terrorist group.
Khan said the people she met online “were nice to me, they gave me advice and they said they loved me,” the court heard.
“She found comfort and a sense of purpose in online relationships, which encouraged her support of extremist jihadi ideology,”
She was sentenced to two years and six months in prison, after pleading guilty to providing support and resources to a terrorist organisation.
