At least three Britons of Pakistani descent are suspected of carrying out the July 7 attacks that killed 52 and injured 700. Surveillance cameras captured the men as they arrived in the capital 20 minutes before the explosions began.MSN-NBC
With the age of the suspects (Hasib 19) involved I would say that it is not only a case of misleading faith or riligious teaching he followed, it is also a case of troubled teen syndrome seen in shootings on school campuses in Minnesota and Columbine, Colorado. In contrast this Muslim teen has gone a step further by finding refuge in riligious extremisim and using it as a vehicle for his rampage (probably by giving this explaination I am trying to solace my discomfort because I follow the same religion: Islam. However it teaches me peace).
Another 22 year old man (Shahzad Tanweer, a 22-year-old cricket-loving sports science graduate) just got from off his teen years but not from his troubles and seeked refuge in riligious extremism.
Tanweer’s uncle, Bashir Ahmed, said his nephew had gone to Pakistan earlier this year to study religion, and that the family believed he was attending “some religious function” on the day of the bombings.
If someone says that he was a good lad then I will wonder why a sports loving good lad lost his sportsman spirit and rather choose to go on rampage killing innocent people.
One warehouse worker, who would only give his first name, Saj, said Tanweer was a “good lad” and athlete. “He was quiet,” he said. “He was religious. He went to every mosque here. There are loads of mosques here.”
Now Tanweer's family thinks that they cannot continue in Britian
“It was total shock, I mean, it’s unbelievable,” Ahmed told reporters. “Our lives have been shattered. It’s impossible to describe it. We have had a very pleasant time here. I don’t think we can continue here.”
but I am sure earlier they would have been very happy when their son was taking refuge in religion that he is being protected from the ills of Western life. That was the time to check on him and find out what kind of religious ethics he was following. Or that was the time, his family should have left Britain and raised their son in Pakistan in a Muslim environment under their own supervision. It is the parents who make their children confused and disoriented by making wrong decisions for their children. And I must say that even Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) said that we are responsible for our children and a child becomes what his parents nurture him to be.
