You may recall the Ahmadi shopkeeper who was savagely murdered in Glasgow last year. Jihadi Tanveer Ahmed confessed to the murder of shopkeeper Asad Shah at his newsstand. The taxi driver killer “laughed and laughed” as he stabbed an Ahmadi to death for “disrespecting the prophet Muhammed.” Tanveer Ahmed was sentenced for life to prison dawah — halal meals, prayer meetings with Muslim fighters and unrestricted access to jihad terrorists and hate imams all over the world.
Tanveer Ahmed, who had traveled from Yorkshire to Glasgow is gaining popularity in Pakistan. To regular readers, that might not be such a surprise.
What is astonishing, however, is that Ahmed has been in regular phone contact from jail with hardline Pakistan cleric Khadim Hussain Rizvi; some of Ahmed’s outpourings of bile have been posted on Facebook.
Why are the prison authorities allowing this contact?
Will Facebook put an end to these proxy posts?
Why too have the BBC given airtime to the noxious cleric Rizvi? Interviewed on the flagship BBC Radio 4 service, Rizvi said:
“We are proud of that fact he has killed and we stand with him. I am proud of the fact that we’re in contact and this pride will remain until the day of judgement and beyond.”
Remember, every TV watching household in the UK is forced to fund the BBC — or face a trip to Court.

As a result Ahmed has reportedly seen his popularity surge within anti-blasphemy movements in parts of Pakistan.Speaking to BBC Radio 4, Rizvi said: “We are proud of that fact he has killed and we stand with him. I am proud of the fact that we’re in contact and this pride will remain until the day of judgement and beyond.”Asked by the BBC’s Pakistan correspondent Secunder Kermani that one of the “central characteristics” of the prophet was forgiveness, Rizvi said it was not the same for followers.
“Even if the prophet forgave someone that was because it was his personal right to do so but his followers don’t have that right to forgive someone who’s insulted him,” he said.
Rizvi added: “God willing it won’t change anything. Phone calls have been banned. Letters haven’t. He will write to us.”Mr Shah’s family members have reportedly been appalled by Ahmed’s popularity.Abdul Abid, former president of the Scottish Ahmadiyya community, said: “Pakistan has got the problem, there’s no doubt about it and this problem is being exported even to outside Pakistan.
Ahmed’s phone has reportedly been taken off him in prison but his status is growing in Pakistan.
Islamist militants kill scores in Pakistan police attack “The event which happened in Glasgow is also an example of the same.” Ahmed claimed to have been offended by clips Mr Shah had posted online which he said “disrespected the Prophet Muhammad”.Hours before he was murdered popular Mr Shah wished his Christian customers a happy Easter on Facebook.Watching one clip on his phone on the day of the murder Ahmed was heard in a phone message to say “listen to this guy, something needs to be done, it needs nipped in the bud”.
Judge Lady Rae said Ahmed had carried out a “brutal, barbaric, horrific crime” for which he had shown no remorse and even appeared proud of what he had done.
