The Islamic State has named British-Pakistani baroness Sayeeda Warsi, the first Muslim woman to sit in the United Kingdomâ€™s cabinet, on a â€œkill listâ€, while describing her as a â€œpolitically active apostateâ€.
Published in the militant groupâ€™s magazine, Dabiq, IS called for the murder of so-called apostates, including presidential candidate Hillary Clintonâ€™s aide Huma Abedin and Tory Business Secretary Sajid Javid.
The article warned: â€œIf figures such as Warsi and Javid are caught before they repent, then there is no amnesty for them and theirs shall be a painful and fatal punishment.â€
Republican Keith Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to the US Congress, was also named in the magazine.
â€œDaesh is a collection of liars, murderers, terrorists and rapists. No Muslim I know recognises what they preach as Al-Islam,â€ he said in a statement.
Clintonâ€™s campaign declined to comment on the threats, according to the Independent.
Despite the fact that high-profile figures have been named in the list for publicity, â€œthe threat is expected to be taken seriously by the Home Officeâ€, the Independent reported.
