We hide in some bushes in a graveyard and secretly photo a grieving man
Deep in thought, the parents of 7/7 bus bomber Hasib Hussain stood by their son’s grave yesterday to remember the boy they still love.

To the outside world the 18-year-old will always be an evil suicide bomber responsible for murdering 13 innocent people on a double-decker bus in London’s Tavistock Square.

But his family appear to have ignored the terrible circumstances of his death ten years ago by mourning his passing as if he were a victim himself.
Hussain was a terrorist who killed many. But he was still their son. They knew nothing of what he was going to do, they never got a chance to say goodbye. They are not "ignoring" the circumstances - I'm sure they feel deep pain at the circumstances of their son's death.
But the shame of having such a notorious terrorist in the family appears to have had little impact on the Hussains, who have remained in the same house, quietly going about their business.
As opposed to doing what...?
Factory worker Mahmood and his wife Maniza, an interpreter for Asian families at Leeds General Infirmary, have three other children apart from Hasib.

Eldest son Imran, his wife Shazia and their two children continued to live with them after the atrocity.

Daughter Asiya has married and settled nearby with her three children. While their other daughter Alia sparked a family scandal by running away with a Sikh lover
You know, in case you want to hurl abuse at them, this is where you can find them.

I find the picture particularly disgusting. A long-lens photo of a man standing at his son's grave in private grief is a little too intrusive, regardless of who his son was.

He probably has a good case for suing for breach of privacy. That would go down well with the Mail.
Up North, UK, 1 hour ago
I find it quite disgusting that the bodies of the murderers are returned to their families instead of just being incinerated!
They'd think twice about strapping bombs to themselves if that happened!

Shades of Stewart Lee on the death of Bin Laden there. "'They should have strung him up on a roasting spit in Times Square and blown him up so he could have seen what it felt like...' ... 'His corpse should have been laid out on the White House lawn and repeatedly fucked by gay porn stars...' - and the shocking thing there is that I only made up half of them. But you're never going to know which half."

And if they did speak publicly, who'd be out front and centre shouting "Shut up, who cares what you have to say!"?

Hearteningly, this is the best rated comment
The father was a victim whether you like it or not DM. Is he not allowed to grieve? It's not like he made a public display. Looks like some loser sat in the bushes for hours with a telephoto lens waiting for him to come along! Gutter journalism trying to divide communities. Plus ca change,eh?

Just possibly they haven't said anything about it because they're not personally responsible for, or representative of, every gay man in the world.

Another possibility is that they may have very strong views, but they're not being reported.

Or they may think it's pretty much taken as read that Stonewall don't approve of IS, and don't think it's necessary to say it. But of course, MacKenzie prefers it when minorities are made to vociferously assert their support of the party line, like a subscription to society.

Or they may think that while it's highly unlikely a gay Briton will get thrown to his death, they may just be affected by stuff going on in this country?

Or - final one now - they may not give a tuppenny fuck what Kelvin MacKuntzie thinks.

It's on a par with 'Clear your plate, there are starving children in Africa'. Or, perhaps more accurately, 'Quit whining or I'll give you something to really cry about!'.
