Mrs. Begum's mother is believed to be a people of Bangladesh, which means that she will be under the law of Bangladesh.
But Ms. Begum told BBC Middle East correspondent Quentin Sommerville: "I was not born in Bangladesh, I have never seen Bangladesh, and I do not even speak Bengali properly because they can say that I have the citizenship of Bangladesh
– I have one citizenship … and if you depart from me, I have nothing. I do not think that they are allowed.
"This is a decision that changes life and they even did not tell me "
She continued:" I was hoping that Britain would understand that I had made mistake, a very big mistake, because I was young and naive. "
