Detectives arrest 32-year-old Muslim man after Pakistani-born Asad Shah, 40, repeatedly stabbed in savage attack

A popular shopkeeper was stabbed to death by another Muslim in a "religiously prejudiced" attack hours after posting an Easter message on Facebook to "my beloved Christian nation".

Asad Shah, 40, a devout Muslim originally from the Pakistani city of Rabwah, had his head stamped on during a savage attack, according to one eyewitness.

Around four hours earlier the victim wrote online: "Good Friday and a very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation.

"Let's follow the real footstep of beloved holy Jesus Christ and get the real success in both worlds."

On Friday afternoon, police confirmed that a 32-year-old Muslim man had been arrested in connection with Mr Shah's death.

A spokeswoman added: "A full investigation is under way to establish the full circumstances surrounding the death which is being treated as religiously prejudiced."

The victim was found seriously injured on Minard Road, Glasgow, and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he later died on Thursday.

An eyewitness, who did not want to be named, told the Daily Record: “As I drove past I saw two men standing over the victim.


The message posted by Asad Shah hours before has was stabbed to death

"One was stamping on his head. There was a pool of blood on the ground. It was horrific.

“The police arrived in minutes and the poor guy was getting CPR at the scene. I really hope he pulls through.”

On his Facebook page, Mr Shah describes himself as the self-employed owner of Shah's Health and Fitness. His social media account also features videos of Mr Shah in prayer.

In previous posts, he also called "unconditional real love for all mankind".

A police incident unit is stationed near the murder scene, while a body tent is visible.

Resident Isabella Graham, 64, said Mr Shah had previously employed her daughter at the shop. She said: "He was an amazing, wonderful man, he couldn't do enough for you. He wouldn't hurt anybody. Nobody in Shawlands would have a bad word to say about him. I can't believe he's gone."

Brothers Qaiser and Omar Khan told BBC Scotland they knew Mr Shah well and had repaired his cars in the past. They described him as "a humble, sweet person".

Omar Khan added: "I've known him since I was a wee boy so this is shocking news. He was a very straight-forward, humble person who was very good with his customers. He cared about his family a lot."

Another local resident, Robert Maitland, said: "He was very friendly. Every morning we shook hands and said 'have a nice day'. He was just a pleasant, lovely lad."

The vigil, advertised on social media, was to be held as close to the area's Waverley Gardens as the police cordon would allow. People attending were encouraged to bring a daffodil.

In a statement, Nisreen Sharif and Eildon Dyer, the organisers, said: "As a community we are coming together to mourn his death and as a small sign of sympathy towards his family."

A fundraising campaign on the GoFundMe website was set up on Friday after news of his death emerged, with the proceeds going to his family "to show how much he was cared for".

It had raised more than £5,000 within six hours of being set up.

Cutthroats. If you aren't a radical Islamist, the real radicals will kill you. I wonder how many "radicals" are putting on a façade out of fear of being murdered and worse.

Meh.... Humankind is beast-like, it sickens me...

We should all be living in peace, but there are always beasts like these people who have to frikkin hate everything in the world... Killing or injuring someone will not solve any of your own problems...

I hope that one day the majority of humankind will be able to live in peace together without anything like this, though hoping this will happen someday is very unrealistic..

I used to work at a small shopped owned by two Pakistani Muslims and they were really nice people.
They had a shrine to the Virgin Mary in the store out of respect for the local Mexican population.

Well this is that kind of force some of them are using on refugee asylums or other places where they got more a "freedom" to do this cind of thing/teach or terrorise other refugees even though maybe the "evil" ones was not even a refugee only trying to spread the word and like I have posted or found more stories about repeated or group attacks on "eachother" even though they would think otherwise (that they are not a part of them).

Worse part of it that those comming in don't have the same trust or had the same experiance with police or goverment to take action on things like these and it wouldn't be reported so its more safe for such criminals/radicals-extremists to take advantage of this.

Also by taking a look at the so called "Peace Conference" they have to just "show" what good they are... insted it mostly shows how extremism is so easly accessed and used...
Just Fuck it... don't need them taking the rules into their own hands...

Sometimes, I just look up at the sky and I ask myself the same question I always ask myself. That question is "What am I doing here?"

Just want to know how "free" you are?
Like anything like this above where you have seen people being a bit forcefull or onto yourself?
But I guess you are more on the "modern" side?

I misunderstood the thread title though. It sounds like the victim was Christian while the killer was actually Muslim.


God help us if the US media gets a hold of this...

ETA: Oh nevermind. I see now that the victim was Muslim as well.
