A Muslim police officer investigated for tweeting racist messages once admitted his employer found his views “extreme.”

Ruby Begum, 26, posted the comment while working for a market research company.

The Mail on Sunday revealed last week that Ms Begum had used Twitter in the months leading up to her entry into the Metropolitan Police to insult Jews and mock the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

She was also in contact with a suspected jihadist woman in Syria.

She frequently used the offensive term ‘kuffar’ to describe unbelievers, writing in July 2014: “Kuffar lips have been all over my cup, there’s no way I can reuse this thing. “

Elsewhere, she called Pakistanis “p *** s”.

As Scotland Yard faced questions about how her rants (example, above) had been missed during the audit, it emerged that she had communicated for many months with a woman who allegedly fled the Europe in 2014 to live under the so-called Islamic State caliphate.

Miss Begum also mocks the 9/11 attacks in her tweets, even as recently as 2019, when she was a full-time officer at the Met.  On September 11, 2019, as the world marked the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, Miss Begum tweeted:

On September 11, 2019, as the world marked the 18th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, Miss Begum tweeted: “Omg [O my God] is it september 11 today? Jokes, I only noticed. On the same birthday in 2014, she tweeted: “Must be stupid if you think I’m going to do 2 minutes of silence for 9/11”

This diary can now reveal that when a friend invited her to change her Twitter settings from private to public 18 months after becoming a police officer, Ms Begum replied: ‘I can’t ask anyone at work to find me. “

Later, however, she made her tweets publicly available.

She managed her account under the name Ruby Beees, posting 25,000 messages.

Photographs and movies of the little officer wearing a hijab on the frontlines went viral last year, with senior colleagues calling her inspirational.

But after being alerted by The Mail on Sunday, the Met opened an investigation and referred the matter to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

Ms Begum has now been placed on “restricted duties”. Most of his anti-Semitic comments were made in 2014, when Israel launched a fierce attack on the Palestinian militant group Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

Ms Begum wrote: “Dirty Zionist. Jahannam [hell] waits.’ In another tweet, she wrote: “Israel has no limits. Scumbags, I can’t wait for them to be severely punished.

Later that year, she said, “Zionists have no heart! They will have what happens to them subhanallah [glory be to God].’

In a tweet from 2014, she wrote: “I don’t like being private, but my company thinks I have extreme opinions. “

The Met said in a statement: “There is no room within the Met for racist, homophobic or hateful attitudes and officers and staff can expect vigorous action if they are found to have or express such opinions.

“The information provided by The Mail on Sunday regarding an agent’s social media posts is concerning and is being treated very seriously. “
