Hasib Hussain was just 18 years old when he blew himself up, on a bus in Tavistock Square, London, along with 13 other passengers. This act of terrorism, in support of the holy Jihad, assured Hasid and the other three suicide bombers of their place in Paradise. Life should be a breeze for a successful suicide bomber... but Hasib feels badly let down.
“When we volunteered for the suicide mission, the virgins were the clincher. Seventy two virgins, at your beck and call: I mean, what’s not to like? Deflowering virgins sounds great. In theory. But most of the younger lads up here are virgins too - not me, obviously - so it’s like the blind leading the blind. And, well, there’s virgins... and there’s virgins. If I knew I’d be spending eternity servicing Mother Teresa - the woman is insatiable - I might have had second thoughts about the whole martyrdom business.”
