It turns out that the well liked Muslim shopkeeper Asad Shah who was an Ahmadi Muslim - a sect which is seen as controversial to other people of
Muslim faith - was murdered by another Muslim.
This murder was originally reported in this thread
in march, where there was much
speculation of whom the perpetrators may have been. It seemed that even though Mr Shah moved from Pakistan in what is thought to be an attempt to
escape persecution, he could not flee far enough.
The perpetrator stands by his reasoning for killing as seen in this BBC
He made several concerning statements through his lawyer:
"This all happened for one reason and no other issues and no other intentions. Asad Shah disrespected the messenger of Islam the Prophet Muhammad
peace be upon him. Mr Shah claimed to be a Prophet."
The perpetrator seems a confused chap as he also said the Qua-ran is the final word of the prophet yet appeared to take selfies (which were on a
Channel 4 report I saw) which surely goes against his faith as I thought that images of humans are outlined as not allowed. But please don't quote me
on the teachings, rulings and beliefs of a faith I don't know.
Whatever happened this religious violence and hatred must stop and cannot be allowed in this country. A normal person would turn the other cheek if
they knew someone was making claims which they felt was false. Violence of this type which concerns religion clashing with freedom of speech must be
stomped out entirely as it is in parallel to the terrible Charlie Hebdo attacks.
As always lets keep it civil please ATS.
