A man has admitted to killing a fellow Muslim in Scotland because he felt he had disrespected Islam.
Shopkeeper Asad Shah was stabbed and beaten in March at his convenience store in Glasgow.
Police said the slaying was “religiously prejudiced.” Shah was a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, a minority sect which differs from mainstream Islam in that it doesn’t regard Muhammad as the final prophet.
Suspect Tanveer Ahmed, from Bradford in northern England, pleaded guilty during a hearing at Glasgow’s High Court on Thursday.
Prosecutors said that when 32-year-old Ahmed was interviewed by police, he said his actions were motivated by Shah’s “disrespect (for) the Quran, the Prophet Muhammad, Allah and faith.”
Ahmed will be sentenced Aug. 9. Judge Rita Rae said “this was a truly despicable crime.”

The murderer should be executed. If that isn’t possible his life should be lived out in the worst prison cell possible. Once again we see another example of Islam the religion of peace at work.

If this happens already with a fellow Muslim in Scotland, we may expect much more killings of Christians and non Muslims in the CEE, because they certainly do not regard Muhammad as the final prophet. In fact, our politicians have imported our enemies in our countries and we hold them responsible for that!
One day after 9/11: 15% of the interviewed young Muslims declared on the Dutch tv that they would commit a terrorist attack in the future…… DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON??
Question: Would you as a weapon collector accept a free shipment of 100 shells for your collection at home, when 10-15% could spontaneously explode unexpectedly? Would you? Certainly not!! You must be crazy to do that.
Well, our policians are crazy. They told us that there are good Muslims as well. But the good Muslims do not protect us against the bad Muslims and our government does not do either…..so we really have crazy leaders and they are responsible for the killings, because they could have avoided them, by not importing the enemy in our country.

Dip your bullets in pigs blood.

In addition to my previous comment:
I know that 85 % of the Muslims here in the Netherlands (and I think in the CEE as well) are ok and I respect them. But we do not know which one is our enemy….and will kill us and our children in the future. Right?

Killery, if elected, will bring a million unvetted Muslim refugees into the US and will give them full welfare, health and educational benefits. And this, despite knowing that ISIS has stated they will have terrorists hiding among them. That’s reason enough right there to pass on Killery Klinton, who has also shown that she will do or say anything to keep from getting penalized for her many crimes and lies while under oath. She has now gotten by with her miserable actions in Benghazi, her misuse of top secret data and her many cover up lies, and will, if elected, do and say many more illegal things. LIES = TRUTH, TRUTH = LIES. If Killery wins, America DIES !!!

I love you nick name for the infection. Killary. Right on the mark. This will be the final nail in America’s freedom. We will be in a constant police state. No one would be safe anywhere. She will keep obama on as advisor. His third term? NO! TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT 2016! Let him clean house and close the borders.
Sharon Jenkins says
I’m for Trump but I don’t think the GOP elite establishment will allow him to clean house. They are involved in kickbacks from BIG PHARMA, and lobbyist and they don’t want to loose their gravy train. Trump will have to do it little by little, I’m afraid if Killary becomes President, she may not serve her term.
He should be forced to spend his cell time with a pig as a bunk mate. That will drive him even crazier than their evil “religion”.
Sorry to tell you this mate, but muslims have taken over UK prisons, protected by race laws and concessions to their religion the result is that they are almost untouchable, they also have the biggest gang as they are allowed to congregate with other muslims, check out Tommy Robinson on youtube, jailed for being a patriot, he had to break the rules so that he would be put in solitary thereby saving his own life.
Too bad the days of Churchill, Thatcher and Ronald Reagan are far in the rear view mirror. It’s like that here in the USA as well. It’s perhaps the death nell of western civilization.

I like Sharon J. last sentence. ” I’m afraid if Killery becomes president,she may not serve her term”. Sharon; please don’t be “AFRAID”. THINK POSITIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Correct, a vote for Hillary says you want hundreds of thousands of muslims to be relocated to our country. Those who vote for killery are asking for big trouble. Those who vote for killery are dead asleep and not aware of whats happening in the world. Check news sources in Finland, Sweden and Norway. They have been letting muslims into their countries since the late 60s. Ask them how happy they are about their situations now. Check news sources about what happened in Twin Falls Idaho where muslims were secretly relocated there. About what happened to the 5 yr old girl in the laundry room.
You forgot to mention that the reason that the killer gave for killing the shopkeeper ,was that, he had wished his christian customers , ” A HAPPY EASTER “. In the killers psycho brain, he felt this was disrespecting his religion.
