Summary: 

So once again, as always, jihad violence is the Infidel’s fault. If only the British authorities had gotten the poor lamb the help he was crying out for, all would have been well. But it’s interesting that Vajahat Sharif says Khan wanted a “specific jihadist ideology expert.” The whole premise of “deradicalization” is that Islam is a religion of peace that jihadis misunderstand, twist, and hijack. Since that is a false premise, and warfare against unbelievers is actually taught in the Qur’an and Sunnah, “deradicalization” focuses on other issues, as this article shows: “The scheme aims to address many of the triggers that lead someone to turn against society – from a personal identity crisis and chronic self-esteem problems, through to personal grievances and immersion in extremist ideology.”

But since none of that changes what the Qur’an and Sunnah say about warfare against unbelievers, it doesn’t “deradicalize” the jihadi at all. The only kind of “specific jihadist ideology expert” that the British authorities would have sent to Usman Khan would have either have been stupid or dishonest in maintaining that if only Usman understood Islam correctly, he would be a loyal, peaceful British citizen, and would have accomplished nothing.
