The man in the ISIS Video threatening Britain and Britain's PM David Cameron has been identified as Siddhartha Dhar.According to reports produced by BBC, Dhar was the chief suspect after the video was released, which claims the killing of five men by ISIS were spies.Though there is no official confirmation yet but BBC reports say, 'A lot of people think it is him.'The report also says that Dhar was a Hindu, who converted to Islam to join the Islamic State. Dhar hails from Walthamstow, East London and is a father of four children.Before joining ISIS, Dhar had joined the radical Islamist group al-Muhajiroun, which now is banned in UK. Dhar changed his name to Abu Rumaysah and was arrested in 2014 but jumped bail and fled to Syria to join ISIS.Al-Muhajiroun, founded by British extremist preacher Anjem Chaudhary, was banned in UK, leading to the formation of Islam4UK. Chaudhary is now serving his jail term for helping and supporting ISIS.Dhar's sister Kanika Dhar identified her brother's voice after listening to the audio but later after watching the video, she said she was not so sure of him, being her brother.Kanika says, 'I was in a state of shock. I believed the audio to resemble, from what I remember, the voice of my brother but having viewed the short clip in detail, I wasn't entirely convinced which put me at ease.'British Police said that more than 700 people from UK have travelled all the way to Syria and Iraq to support and fight for jihadist organisation.
