Ahmadiyya Muslims launch peace campaign in Glasgow

Source: BBC

Scotland’s Ahmadiyya Muslim community has launched a campaign promoting “peace, love and unity” following the death of Glasgow shop keeper Asad Shah. The message “united against extremism” will be carried on posters on 50 buses. Mr Shah was an Ahmadiyya, a group known for its peaceful interfaith concerns. He died after an attack outside his shop on 24 March. Murder accused Tanveer Ahmed, 32, from Bradford, later said he killed the 40-year-old as he had falsely claimed to be a prophet. The shopkeeper, who had moved from Pakistan to Glasgow almost 20 years ago, was found with serious injuries outside his shop on Minard Road, in the city’s Shawlands area. He was pronounced dead in hospital.

Mr Shah was killed just hours after he posted an Easter message on Facebook to his customers.
