Supporters of the Islamic State terrorist group have allegedly used an encrypted messaging app to discuss how to poison Kate Middleton, like reported by metro.co.uk.
Terror fanatics are said to have sent private messages on the Telegram app to spread a plot to murder the Duchess of Cambridge by targeting the supermarkets she shops at. A picture of Kate, 37, pushing a shopping trolley was allegedly sent with the message: ‘We know what she eats — poison it’.
A second message called for an attack on her son Prince George, with a picture of the young royal holding his father Prince William’s hand alongside the words: ‘Rise of the kuffar’ which translates as ‘unbeliever’. The messages are being taken ‘very seriously’, the Daily Star Sunday reported.
The newspaper quoted a source as saying: ‘Intelligence agents believe the threats made against Kate are not idle and are linked to messages sent by Husnain Rashid. ‘It’s a disgusting plot as it involves Kate’s young children, and hits out at her attempt to live a normal life like any mother wants to.’ In July, internet terrorist Husnain Rashid was jailed for life with a minimum of 25 years for urging his social media followers to target Prince George at school.
Rashid, 32, sent 360,000 messages on 150 different chat threads on Telegram between November 2016 and his arrest on 22 November 2017. He also urged thousands of followers to carry out terror attacks at the World Cup in Russia.
A court heard that Rashid had encouraged followers to inject cyanide into fruit and vegetables at grocery stores and inject poison into ice cream. During his May 2018 trial, prosecutor Annabel Darlow told the court Rashid messaged the Telegram group with a picture of the young prince, saying: ‘Even the royal family will not be left alone.’
He added: ‘School starts early.’ He was branded ‘pathetic’ by his own defence lawyer, Naeem Mian QC, who said: ‘His life was going nowhere, and all of a sudden this gives his life some meaning. What underpins all of that is social exclusion. ‘He is rather a sad little man – an armchair warrior.’
