Bakri’’s daughter whisked away from home after pole dancing revelations

London, Sept.29 (ANI): The daughter of radical Islamic cleric Omar Bakri has left her home in London amid fears for her safety after it was disclosed that she was a pole dancer.
Police were called in to escort Yasmin Fostok, 27, away from her flat in south London, and take her to an undisclosed location on Saturday.
It emerged last week that Fostok regularly performs in bars and nightclubs. There was also a report that her father - leader of the now outlawed al-Muhajiroun group - had paid 4,000 pounds for a breast enlargement operation for her.
Fostok, one of Bakri’’s three daughter’’s has dyed her hair blonde, changed her name from Youssra to Yasmin and separated from her Turkish-born husband.
Last week she admitted to being a dancer with a troupe called Ibiza Untouched and was quoted in The Sun as saying that she had been known to perform topless “if the venue is right”.
But the reports of her activities angered her father and led to fears that extremists could target her.
Police have refused to confirm or deny reports that she has received security advice.
A spokesman said that officers had escorted her away from the property at her own request but denied suggestions that she had been taken to a “safe house”.
Fostok has distanced herself from her father, who praised the September 11 hijackers while living in Britain.
She was quoted last week as saying: “I don”t agree with his views, I just get on with my life and that’’s it.”
Bakri left Britain for Lebanon after the July 2005 bombings.
He remains there despite an unsuccessful attempt to return to this country.
Last week, he furiously denied the story about his daughter and claimed Britain would “pay a heavy price”.
He went further, suggesting that Fostok is an imposter and not his daughter. (ANI)
