Asad Shah Killing: Tanveer Ahmed Pleads Guilty To Murder of Glasgow’s Shopkeeper

Post by Didge on Thu Jul 07, 2016 4:26 pm

A man has pleaded guilty to the murder of Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah, claiming he did it because his victim “disrespected” Islam.
Tanveer Ahmed, 32, from Bradford in West Yorkshire, pleaded guilty at the High Court in Glasgow to murdering the respected businessman, who was described by his family as a “brilliant” man, the Press Association reports.
Shah was discovered outside his shop on Minard Road with stab wounds and taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said from the outset that they believed the attack was religiously prejudiced.
Just hours before his death, Shah posted a message on Facebook which read: “Good Friday and a very happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nationx.”

I don't see how he could have pleaded not guilty really.

A terrible story. RIP Asad Shah.

Yes, really a case of wring place wrong time for Mr Shah.

Hope his family find peace.
