Sectarian killer Tanveer Ahmed calls for enemies of Islam to be 'eliminated' in new prison recording

A new recording allegedly made by Islamic extremist murderer Tanveer Ahmed from a Scottish prison has emerged in which he calls for supporters to "eliminate" enemies of Islam.

In August, Ahmed, from Bradford in Yorkshire, was jailed for 27 years for the murder of Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah.

Shah, a member of the persecuted Ahmadi Muslim sect, was stabbed and beaten to death outside his shop last March. In a statement released while in police custody Sunni Muslim Ahmed, 32, claimed he had been acting to defend the "honour" of the Prophet Muhammad.

From behind bars in Scotland's Barlinnie prison, Ahmed has continued to spread his violent sectarian message, and in an Urdu recording apparently made over the telephone he praises fellow Islamist killer Mumtaz Qadri, who assassinated liberal Pakistani politician Salmaan Taseer in 2011.
