KUALA LUMPUR: The war against terror is not without the faces of wives or young women intending to marry their beloved. 

A 51-year-old woman was arrested for planning to attack a polling centre in Puchong, Selangor, on polling day in May.

It was reported that the woman had also wanted to crash her vehicle into non-Muslim places of worships.

Last year, a 26-year-old Malaysian medical laboratory student was arrested at the KL International Airport upon her arrival after being deported from Turkey.

It was said then that the woman had wanted to go to Syria earlier to marry a Malaysian IS militant based there.

Just last month, a 31-year-old Terengganu woman gave a press conference in which she spoke of how the slain militant leader Muhammad Wanndy Mohamed Jedi was the “inspiration” behind her late husband’s longing to join the IS terror group in Syria.

She claimed that her husband had constantly contacted Wanndy via Facebook prior to going to Syria in March 2016.

Wanndy apparently persuaded her husband to sell all his assets before going to Syria.

“My husband eventually sold his family’s land for RM50,000 as well as his car for our so-called vacation in Turkey,” she said.

Wanndy, 26, was a Malacca boy who left for Syria in 2015.

He was killed in Raqqa, Syria two years later.

He was said to be the man calling the shots in Malaysia from his base in Syria.

Wanndy was also said have directed the bombing of the Movida club in Puchong, Selangor in June 2016 – the first IS attack in Malaysia – which injured eight people.
