A devout Muslim shopkeeper was savagely killed in the street shortly after posting an Easter message “to my beloved Christian nation”.
Asad Shah, 40, died from injuries sustained in the attack on Thursday night in which his killers are believed to have stabbed him and stamped on his head. Medics tried to save him but he died in hospital.
Police Scotland, who have arrested a man in connection with the attack, said they were treating the death as “religiously prejudiced”.
According to a witness, two men attacked Shah, and:
“One was stamping on his head. There was a pool of blood on the ground. ”
What he wrote that provoked the murder:
“Good Friday and a very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation... Let’s follow the real footstep of beloved holy Jesus Christ (PBUH) [peace be upon him], and get the real success in both worlds xxxx.”
According to the Daily Mail (see link below) Shah was apparently an Ahmadi Muslim. They are a kinder, gentler sect whose members are persecuted in most of the mainstream Muslim countries. They believe in non-violence and co-existence with other faiths.
This is what happens to those who assimilate, integrate, and try to live in peace.
