Shazad Tanweer, a thoroughly English lad according to his father, was not buried not in Twickenham or Surrey or Newcastle-on-Tyne, but in Pakistan — in the shrine of an Islamic saint. Now why is that? Could it be that his family and others think of Tanweer as having done something honorable on July 7? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe? From UPI, with thanks to all who sent this in:
The remains of a British-born suicide bomber involved in the July 7 London bombings were buried at an Islamic saint’s shrine in Pakistan.
The funeral for 22-year-old Shahzad Tanweer, one of four bombers who blew up a subway train killing seven, was held in the village of Chhotian Kota in Pakistan where family relatives live, the Independent reported. Tanweer was born in Bradford, England.
The burial was attended by about 200 people, including Tanweer’s father, Mumtaz Tanweer, a police official said.
