I am Shocked and saddened about this incidence
Jiah Khan (British Bollywood actress) allegedly committed suicide by hanging herself. Police claimed that she was heartbroken after a failed relationship with the son of an actor couple, which possibly drove her to take the step at her home last night.
The body of Jiah, 25, was found hanging at her ‘Sagar Sangeet’ residence in Juhu where she lived with her mother and sister who were not present when she ended her life.
25 is not really the age to run out of all the options, can’t imagine what pushed her to the edge.
I had met her twice, first time at London Indian Film Festival and 2nd time for a coffee meet in Soho, London for ‘100 years of Indian cinema’ documentary we were pitching to BBC.
She was very passionate about Indian cinema, and really wanted to go back and work in India, after 3 years gap.
She was brilliant in her debut film ‘Nishabd’ with Amitabh Bachchan, based on the novel Lolita. She had also acted with Aamir Khan and Akshay Kumar.
I remember her as a very beautiful, bright and polite girl.
It’s sad to loose young Talent
Song from her film ‘Ghajini’ with Aamir Khan
A British soldier has been butchered on a busy London street by two Islamist terrorists, then they ask for passersby to take photographs of them. The attackers shouted “Allahu Akbar” meaning “Allah is Greater”) before killing the Soldier.
In the Name of the God! This fucking brainwashed people have hacked this poor man to death, This whole event is despicable beyond words. My thoughts are with the family and friends who lost their loved one.
What kind of society are we making here?
I personally think the answers to these issues should come from within the Islamic society, They need to get hold of their youngsters and not let them get brainwashed by extremists assholes.
Muslim leadership in this country needs to step up their anti-radicalisation programe.
[highlight]The Real hero in this story was Mrs Loyau-Kennett[/highlight]
I think this mum (Loyau-Kennett) has shown some extraordinary courage, she confronted terrorists just seconds after they had beheaded a soldier asking them to hand over their weapons. Mrs Loyau-Kennett restores my faith in human nature.
Mrs Loyau-Kennett was a passenger on a number 53 bus which was travelling past the scene, and jumped off to check the soldier’s pulse.
“Being a cub leader I have my first aid so when I saw this guy on the floor I thought it was an accident then I saw the guy was dead and I could not feel any pulse.
“And then when I went up there was this black guy with a revolver and a kitchen knife, he had what looked like butcher’s tools and he had a little axe, to cut the bones, and two large knives and he said ‘move off the body’.
“So I thought ‘OK, I don’t know what is going on here’ and he was covered with blood. I thought I had better start talking to him before he starts attacking somebody else. I thought these people usually have a message so I said ‘what do you want?’
“I asked him if he did it and he said yes and I said why? And he said because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries, he said he was a British soldier and I said really and he said ‘I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan they have nothing to do there.”
Moments earlier, the killers had hacked at the soldier “like a piece of meat”, and when Mrs Loyau-Kennett arrived on the scene they were roaming John Wilson Street waiting for police to arrive so they could stage a final confrontation with them.
She said: “I started to talk to him and I started to notice more weapons and the guy behind him with more weapons as well. By then, people had started to gather around. So I thought OK, I should keep him talking to me before he noticed everything around him.
“He was not high, he was not on drugs, he was not an alcoholic or drunk, he was just distressed, upset. He was in full control of his decisions and ready to everything he wanted to do.
I said ‘right now it is only you versus many people, you are going to lose, what would you like to do?’ and he said I would like to stay and fight.”
The suspect in the black hat then went to speak to someone else and Mrs Loyau-Kennett tried to engage with the other man in the light coat.
She said: “The other one was much shier and I went to him and I said ‘well, what about you? Would you like to give me what you have in your hands?’ I did not want to say weapons but I thought it was better having them aimed on one person like me rather than everybody there, children were starting to leave school as well.
Mrs Loyau-Kennett was not the only woman to show extraordinary courage. Others shielded the soldier’s body as the killers stood over them.
