Gates of Vienna has more on the devoted Islamist killer:

A couple of weeks ago Mr. Shah was murdered outside his shop in Glasgow not long after he wished his Christian neighbors a happy Easter in an online message. His murderer, a fellow Muslim named Tanveer Ahmed, was eventually caught and charged. He had driven all the way from Bradford to Glasgow to do the grisly deed.

The Yorkshire Post referred to Mr. Ahmed as a “Yorkshireman”. Well, ee bah goom!

The murderer has now stated that he wanted to punish the victim for disrespecting Islam — that is, for blasphemy. In this he was acting in strict accordance with Islamic law.

Guidance on these matters may be found at, under the heading “A Muslim is prohibited to congratulate the disbelievers, Christians, Jews or whomever, on their distinctive occasions.”
