London Homicide Bomber Relatives Party at Grave Site

Celebrating his worthless life. Nothing like rubbing it in the faces of the victims' families.
A party is being held at the grave of a 7/7 bomber in what is being seen as an insult to the 52 London commuters murdered three years ago today.

The family of Shehzad Tanweer and 400 guests will 'celebrate his life' and 'remember him as a martyr' at a village in Pakistan.

Tanweer, 22, along with Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, Hasib Hussain, 18, and 19-year-old Jermaine Lindsay, died when they detonated rucksack bombs on three crowded Tube trains and a No.30 bus.

Tanweer's uncle, 42-year-old property developer Tahir Pervez, is organising the celebration in which verses of the Koran will be read out then curry and rice distributed at his home in Samundari.

'The party is kept very secret from people outside the village but everyone knows it happens every year,' said one villager who asked not be named.

'People are invited to join in blessing Shehzad Tanweer's soul by reading verses from the Koran and they call on us to remember Shehzad as a shahid (martyr).'
For people who are so sensitive to the slightest of perceived insults, they sure have no problem being insenstivie themselves.
