Muslims issue death threats against Scotland’s top human rights lawyer…also a Muslim

SCOTLAND’s leading human rights lawyer has received death threats from Islamic extremists over his calls for unity within the country’s Muslim community.

Though unable to give details due to an ongoing police investigation, Aamer Anwar said the threats came from individuals who have taken issue with his call for Muslims of all backgrounds and denominations to stand up together against Islamic extremism.

Anwar said he did not wish to go into ‘the specifics’ of the threats against him, but said he “presumed” they came from Islamic extremists.
