A man in Scotland brutally beat and stabbed a fellow Muslim in a convenient store because he “disrespected” Islam.
Not only did the man kill a Muslim shop owner, but he admitted it.
The shop owner, Asad Shah, was a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community. Although the Ahmadiyya Muslim community studies Islam, their views differ in the fact that they do not accept Muhammad as the final prophet.
When the suspect, Tanveer Ahmed, was interviewed by the police he said that he killed the man because of his “disrespect (for) the Quran, the Prophet Muhammad, Allah and faith.”
