Extremist killer Tanveer Ahmed has sent a new message to his supporters from behind bars.
The 32-year-old is serving life for murdering Asad Shah last year because he believed theGlasgow shopkeeper was a “false prophet” who “disrespected Islam”.
However, has has been able to smuggle out audio messages to followers who support his actions in killing Mr Shah, a member of the Ahmadi faith persecuted in Ahmed’s native Pakistan.
Last week Ahmed used one such message, obtained by BBC Scotland, to back a major rally in Karachi attended by controversial preacher Khadim Hussain Rizvi, one of if his highest profile supporters.
Ahmed, a former Bradford taxi driver, said: “I have great restrictions imposed on me in prison but I am not failing to extend this invitation to you.”
He also said that he had been asked to give up his connections in Pakistan and claimed he had been warned off by what he called “agents of infidels”.
He said: “They threatened me and asked me to sever all contacts with these people.”
Previously Ahmed has used recordings from jail to attack Ahmadis and said he had no regrets over killing Mr Shah. said “I stood guard on the honour of Prophet Muhammad and I shall do it again if I shall get a chance.”
In another he says: “The penalty for those who insult the prophet: cut their heads from their bodies.”
