Muslim shopkeeper Asad Shah had 'disrespected Islam' according to man who admits his murder

The family of murdered shopkeeper Asad Shah say they have decided to leave Scotland because they cannot cope with their “pain and fear” after another Muslim admitted killing him for insulting the Prophet Muhammad.

Mr Shah’s father and mother, Syed and Sadiqua, his wife Khalida and his six brothers and sisters said they never thought they would be in danger in Scotland but now feel “imprisoned by our pain and suffering” and unable to live a normal life.

They said the murder in March this year had left them struggling with “simple things” like being in public places or communicating with friends and that Mr Shah’s wife now leads “a life of isolation and solitude”. [The Telegraph] Read more
