The 21st Century Phenomenon




Hasib  Mir Hussain, a British citizen and the youngest of four brothers, was born on 09/16/1986 in Leeds but raised in the nearby village Beeston, in the same neighborhood where Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer lived. 

Hasib  Mir Hussain received his primary and secondary education in Leeds. He finished his studies on 07/20/2003 without the final general exams though he passed the examination in business studies.

He was a member of the Holbeck (a suburb of Leeds) Hornets football team and in the local cricket team.  After leaving school Hasib  Mir Hussain turned to Islamic religion. He volunteered to work with deprived youth in Leeds in a drop-in center for teens called Hamara Youth Access Point (HYAP) – an Islamic charity, partly funded by the U.K government. In HYAP he met frequently Mohammad Sidique Khan and Shehzad Tanweer, and was, probably, recruited to the terror cell that carried out the London 7/7 attack.

In 2003 Hasib  Mir Hussain visited relatives in Pakistan and returned to UK more devoted to Islam. In 2003 he also went to fulfill the Hajj in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. Hasib  Mir Hussain started to wear traditional Muslim dress.  As his radicalization caused tension with his parents he moved to live with his older brother Imran.

On the morning of 07/07/2005 Hasib  Mir Hussain, with his three friends, traveled with a car from Leeds to Luton, 30km north of London, and took the train from Luton to King’s Cross station in London. Hasib  Mir Hussain activated his charge at 09:47 on a double deck bus at Tavistock Square in London 7/7 attack.
