He was commenting on the news that Asad Shah, the Glasgow shopkeeper was killed for “disrespecting” Islam. He met Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the Leader of the community.
“I recently had the pleasure of meeting the spiritual Leader of the Ahmadi Muslim community and am therefore well aware of their peaceful “Love for All, Hatred for None” ethos as well as their strong emphasis on inter-faith integration.
“They also carry out excellent charity work – which my constituency benefited from when they came to help with flood relief efforts here in Cumbria this Christmas.
“All this makes the brutal murder of Asad Shah in Glasgow – due to the fact he was an Ahmadi – all the more shocking.
“We must stand together against all forms of extremism, division and hatred, so that those of all faiths and none can live together without fear.”
