In August 2011, Farooq Murad of the MCB made a moving statement remembering the recent tragedy faced by two families in Birmingham, one of these being the Jahan family who lost their son Haroon in a violent incident:

” The people of Birmingham saw tragedy when three young men lost their lives in defence of their neighbourhood. But from this tragedy came the truly inspirational intervention of Tariq Jahan, whose son Haroon Jahan was brutally killed just round the corner from his home. His dignified patience and call for peace soothed the community and the nation at a time of great tension. Tariq Jahan captured the great essence of patience in Islam and British Muslims everywhere are grateful for Mr Jahan playing a truly representative role for our community and our faith. His call for calm should resonate now as the soul-searching about the riots continue. The riots were wrong, but we hope there will be a careful analysis of the problem that such chaos no longer happens on our streets.”

Not having been satisfied by the Police action, Tariq Jahan has now called for an enquiry – he deserves the support of all fair-minded Britons. click here.
