A man who admitted to the religiously-motivated murder of Glasgow store owner Asad Shah has been jailed for life.
Tanveer Ahmed, from Bradford, attacked Shah outside his shop, Shah’s Newsagents & Convenience Store, on March 24. He was later pronounced dead at Queen Elizabeth university hospital in Glasgow.
Hours before he was fatally stabbed Shah had posted a goodwill Easter message on Facebook.
Ahmed was jailed at the High Court in Glasgow where he was told he would serve a minimum of 27 years in jail for the murder.
Judge Lady Rae told Ahmed he was guilty of the “barbaric killing of a peace-loving man”.
Following the murder, more than £110,000 was raised in an online campaign for the family of Asad Shah.
