UK: Muslim Shopkeeper Murdered for Wishing Christians a Happy Easter

Brussels, Lahore, Glasgow, radical Islam is getting out of hand.

Muslim shopkeeper who wished Christian friends Happy Easter 'knifed by Islamic fanatic'

Newsagent Asad Shah was brutally murdered just hours after he posted a heartfelt Easter message to Christian friends

A DEVOUT Muslim shopkeeper was stabbed to death in a suspected religious hate killing hours after wishing Christians Happy Easter. Peace-loving Asad Shah, 40, was knifed outside his newsagents’ shop.

A 32-year-old fellow Muslim, who was in hospital last night, was arrested in connection with the attack yesterday, a source said.

Police confirmed they are treating the incident as “religiously prejudiced”.

Four hours before the killing Mr Shah put his Easter message on Facebook in what was to be his final post.

3. The resurrection is not islamic and being nice to Christians is not radical

 

Two reasons for a radical islamist to start sharpening his knife. Apparently.

8. I suppose radicals prefer the fellowship of the 'pure'

 

To attain perfect purity, proceed to step: ethnic/religious cleansing

11. The story is legit.

Here's some coverage from Glasgow: http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/14385426.Hundreds_in_vigil_for_Muslim_shopkeeper_stabbed_to_death/?ref=trn

The alleged motivation, "religiously prejudiced", headlined by the OP is based on a very brief early police statement, and it's usually a good idea to wait a while for a clearer picture to emerge with incidents like this. It was a frenzied stabbing attack, so it's possible mental health issues were a factor too. Still an utterly horrible way for a thoroughly decent person to meet his end.

5. It is a common mistake to think just because someone is religious, that they know a lot about it.

 

You would LIKE to think they know a lot about their supposed faith and the tenants of it, but that is a mistake in this era of impulse shopping.

9. The problem is to get a refund on the 'impulse shopping' of radicalism

 

It's a purchase that binds. Sadly for all concerned.

14. Well organized religions do not have a good human rights record. Fact.

 

Then again God did allow for slaves and stoning your wife and child if they merely said a cross word back to the father. And of course you could just lop the head off of anyone that said an ill word toward God. Never mind the fact that most were dying from plague.

I will say I am happy to be living in modern times in America, I would be dead meat in any other prior time period.

17. He was an Ahmadi

 

They are not considered "true Muslims" by hardliners.

Ahmadi Muslims have been subject to various forms of religious persecution and discrimination since the movement's inception in 1889
