Tariq Jahan: "I have lost my son - if you want to lose yours step forward, otherwise calm down."


The father of a man who was killed along with two others when they were hit by a car during Tuesday's disorder in Birmingham has appealed for calm.
Haroon Jahan, 21, Shahzad Ali, 30, and Abdul Musavir, 31, died as they protected property. A man aged 32 has been arrested on suspicion of murder.
Tariq Jahan urged people to stay calm, and said communities should be united.
About 250 people attended a peaceful vigil on Dudley Road in Winson Green, which began late on Wednesday night.
Mr Jahan stood in the middle of a semi-circle of well-wishers as they lit candles.
The crowd gathered near the scene of the fatal hit-and-run incident, which happened as the three men guarded property along with a crowd of 80 or so people on Tuesday night.
'Bring peace'

Harpreet Singh, 28, who helped to organise the vigil, said: "Let this be a message to other communities, not just Muslims and Sikhs, let's stand together, let's hold candlelight vigils.
