This is so sad. A Muslim man expressed wishes to Christians to have a Happy Easter and called Jesus Christ ‘holy’ and ‘beloved’.
He was then stabbed to death in what is being called a ‘religiously prejudiced’ attack:
TELEGRAPH – A popular shopkeeper was stabbed to death in a “religiously prejudiced” attack hours after posting an Easter message on Facebook to “my beloved Christian nation”.
Asad Shah, 40, a devout Muslim originally from the Pakistani city of Rabwah, had his head stamped on during a savage attack, according to one eyewitness.
Around four hours earlier the victim wrote online: “Good Friday and a very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation.
“Let’s follow the real footstep of beloved holy Jesus Christ and get the real success in both worlds.”
On Friday afternoon, police confirmed that a 32-year-old man had been arrested in connection with Mr Shah’s death.
A spokeswoman added: “A full investigation is under way to establish the full circumstances surrounding the death which is being treated as religiously prejudiced.”
The victim was found seriously injured on Minard Road, Glasgow, and was taken to the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital where he later died on Thursday.
An eyewitness, who did not want to be named, told the Daily Record: “As I drove past I saw two men standing over the victim.
