The questions nobody wants to ask about Asad Shah’s murder

On Easter Saturday a Muslim shopkeeper in Glasgow was brutally murdered. Forty-year-old Asad Shah was allegedly stabbed in the head with a kitchen knife and then stamped upon. Most of the UK press began by going big on this story and referring to it as an act of ‘religious hatred’, comfortably leaving readers with the distinct feeling that – post-Brussels – the Muslim shopkeeper must have been killed by an ‘Islamophobe’. Had that been the case, by now the press would be crawling over every view the killer had ever held and every Facebook connection he had ever made. They would be asking why he had done it and investigating every one of his associates.

    The point is that even being friendly to the hated Christian infidels is a capital offense. No assimilation allowed.

    • That is Islam, in a permanent state of war with the kuffar.

    He was punished by his co-religionists for non-conformance.

    • The Ahmadiyya are apostates,not “true” Muslims, but try telling that to our media who parade them about as “pets” and misrepresent them as “real” Muslims.

    The murder got less coverage than people freaking out about a possible ‘islamophobic backlash’ that never materializes.

    “Did she ask whether the Imam was an Islamist?”
    Ah, Mr Murray, you fall into the trap. *Every* muzzie is an “Islamist”. Stop with the misleading playing with words.
