Asad Shah, a 40 year old Glasgow newsstand operator, was murdered by a fellow Muslim a mere four hours after making a post on social media wishing Christians a Happy Easter. Shah was reportedly stabbed and his head stomped in. He died after being taken to Queen Elizabeth University Hospital.
Everyone’s thoughts should be with those who mourn this man. Asad Shah fled Pakistan because he was a member of the Ahmadi sect, who are persecuted by other Muslims because they are considered “apostates.”
The complacent, self-satisfied egomaniacs of the political left around the world need to note the irony here. Like many truly moderate Muslims, Mr Shah moved to the Western World to escape persecution and the intolerance of so many of his co-religionists. He and others like him didn’t realize that the Labour Party in the U.K. and the Democratic Party in the U.S. would hitch their electoral futures ONLY to the type of murderous fanatics that Mr Shah fled.
The more that the political left (which so many of us have left because of their bizarre fetish for Muslim fascism) abets ONLY the anti-Western voices of Muslim immigrants while ignoring the moderate Muslims that they CLAIM to be looking out for, the more innocent victims like Asad Shah will die. The Muslims who are as tolerant and positive as he was will catch on that they must pander to the fanatical Muslims even here in the West or wind up dead. Just like in the hate-filled lands they fled.
