Shahid Malik, a former government minister and a family friend of the Asmals described them as "a beautiful, caring, peace-loving and incredibly humble family"
"The local community grieves with them today,
"Ebrahim (the father) and the family's world has been shattered in the cruellest of ways and one which no family should ever have to experience.
"Talha was a truly sweet-natured, helpful, respectful and friendly kid and it is incredibly difficult to reconcile this Talha with the suicide-bomber at an raqi oil installation.
"My thoughts and prayers are obviously also with those killed at the oil installation and their families.
"It is disturbing to see how relaxed he looks in the Isis photographs allegedly taken just prior to his suicide mission.
"He looks at peace. It's like he's ready to go and meet his maker. This is a clear indication of just how successful the evil Isis groomers have been in poisoning and brainwashing Talha and kids like him..
"We must defeat Isis in mosques and communities across the country. This is a generational struggle and everyone must be willing to rise to the challenge.
"Importantly, it's a struggle which can only succeed if it is one which is led by Muslims themselves."
