Tragic loss of life during UK Summer riots - reconcilliation in extreme

Tariq JahanÕs son Haroon Jahan and brothers Shazad Ali and Abdul Musavir were struck by a car in the early hours of August 10th 2011 during disorder in Birmingham. They were pronounced dead in hospital and hailed as heroes who died protecting homes and shops from looters. Tariq made a heartfelt plea to crowds of youths gathered outside his home to end the disorder and Ògo homeÓ. His personal call for calm was credited with helping to prevent the riots from escalating.
