Tariq Jahan - dignity in tragedy.
Tariq Jahan, the father of Haroon who was killed whilst trying to protect his community from the mindless yobs during this week’s riots, has shown a quiet dignity and wisdom that stands in stark contrast to the despicable yahoos who murdered his youngest son.
I may not share Mr. Jahan’s belief, but his calm demeanour has done much to show Islam in a better light than that provided by the worrying sharia-demanding homophobes of Tower Hamlets that we see on the news all too frequently.
May those who committed this vile act be swiftly brought to justice.
