Leaflets calling for the slaughter of Ahmadi Muslims are found at mosque

A stack of leaflets calling for the killing of a sect of Muslims have been found at south London mosque, it was reported today.

The flyers, uncovered in Stockwell Green mosque, are said to have labelled Ahmadi Muslims apostates, claiming they deserved to die if they refuse to convert to mainstream Islam.

They call for those who refuse to convert to mainstream Islam within three days to face a death penalty. A mosque trustee told the BBC he had never seen the leaflets before and suggested they were fakes or left there maliciously.

It comes following the death of a Ahmadi shopkeeper who was allegedly stabbed to death by a Muslim for "disrespecting" Islam.
