The SWAT team of Iraqi forces scored a “big” catch in the city of Mosul when they arrested an obese ISIS cleric who has been dubbed as “Jabba the Jihadi” on social media.
Weighing at a whopping 560 pounds (250 kg approx.), the fanatic was loaded onto a flatbed pickup truck by the Iraqi SWAT team as he was too large to be accommodated inside the police car, reported New York Post.
According to an official statement by the Iraqi forces, the apprehended mufti Abu Abdul Bari was known for “provocative speeches against the security forces” and was an important leader of “ISIS gangs”.
The statement further added that Bari passed “fatwas” to order the killings of Islamic clerics who refused to pledge their loyalty to ISIS.
London based anti-Islamic extremism activist Maajid Nawaaz wrote a lengthy post on Facebook ridiculing Bari and his misdeeds, along with images of the fanatic who can be seen immobilized due to his immense weight.
Bari was branded as “Jaba the Jihadi” by Macer Gifford from Britain, who earlier fought against ISIS alongside the Kurdish militia.
