Fury as hate preacher linked to murder of Glasgow shopkeeper cleared to speak in Scotland
by Gordon Blackstock and Graham McKendry
A banned Pakistani cleric whose warped ideology is linked to the murder of popular Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah is to spread his message of sectarian intolerance to Scotland.
Hard-line preacher Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri is due to speak at Falkirk Central Mosque later this month – despite praising a murderer linked to the killing of Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah, who was stabbed 27 times after wishing his customers a "Happy Easter".
The Sunday Post can reveal the zealot has been labelled a "firebrand" by the authorities in Karachi, Pakistan's largest city, and barred from preaching his incendiary sermons.
Yet despite the ban imposed on him in Pakistan, Qadri has faced no obstacle against his speaking at the Falkirk place of worship on December 15.
