A comedy series about a gang of bungling Muslim suicide bombers, Living With The Infidels, has been criticised by relatives of one of the London terror attack victims.
The five-part creation, which is to be posted on YouTube and already has a tribute page on Facebook, tells the spoof story of a five-strong group who plan to wipe out Bradford with a chemical bomb so they can all go to Paradise.
One character called Psycho Ali shows off a device “to protect his manhood in the event of a suicide bomb” for when meets the 72 virgins promised to martyrs.
The series was made by former advertising commercials director Aasaf Ainapore, and its YouTube page says it has been “developed with the support of a senior member of the Muslim Council of Britain”.
Veronica Cassidy, whose son Ciaran, 22, died in the London Tube bombings, told The Sun: "Who is going to find this funny? I won't be watching it."
The synopsis of the series says: “Initially set on a path to martyrdom, Yorkshire's jihadi warriors discover the West isn't as bad as it seems. Tempted by the likes of Man U, cable TV and ample Abi upstairs, what's a man to do? Will they find Paradise in the arms of seventy-two virgins, or is Shangri-La closer to home, propped up at the bar in The Dog and Duck?”
Mr Ainapore told the Daily Telegraph he could not be quoted about the series because he had "agreed an exclusive" with another newspaper but that he had consulted Abdurahman Jafar, a senior member of the Muslim Council of Britain, throughout the development of the series.
The first episode, entitled Ample Abi, is five and a half minutes long and is schedule to go online on August 20.
The series was written by theatre writer Kira-Anne Pelican and “fully financed” by Mr Ainapore.
Mr Ainapore’s website says he has directed commercials and short films “as well as written projects for Pathe” and Film4. He has previously been a visiting lecturer at the London Film School and the National Film and Television School.
