Muslim exorcist who expelled demons by quoting passages from the Koran is stabbed to death at his east London black magic healing centre

A Muslim exorcist stabbed to death in east London may have been killed because of his work, a colleague claimed today.

Father-of-three Zakariyya Islam, 46, who specialises in expelling demons by reading from the Koran was killed at his ‘black magic’ healing centre last night.

The healer had worked as a exorcist for around 20 years and founded the Ruqya Therapy Centre, based on a side street close to the East London Mosque in Whitechapel.

He treated people who believed they were possessed by evil spirits, also known as ‘jinns.’

    The Metropolitan Police are looking for a djinn to help them with their enquiries.
    The djinn will be offered counselling for expulsion trauma.

    He was chasing demons from people after they pay certain amount of euros but he forgot to chase his own evil spirit .

    “Jinns”, is that what they are calling Islam these days?
    I guess the ‘evil’ part is redundant.

    The vague report translates to Muslim killer.

      His defence is prepared – he was possessed by a djinn. The djinn did it.

    That is one exorcism that didn’t work out.

    It’s a little amusing yet fitting the mosque is in Whitechapel.
