Moderate Muslim murdered for saying Happy Easter

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

The constant mantra about moderate Islam begs the question: Where are they all, and why don't we hear from them? 

In Glasgow, UK, yesterday, a Muslim published a warm Easter greeting to his fellow countrymen in recognition of the most important of religious festivals to most, if not all, practicing Christians.

The actual message on his Facebook page:


The story, according to the Daily Mail:

Asad Shah, who was stabbed up to 30 times at his shop, had praised both the life of Jesus and ‘his beloved Christian nation’. Left lying in a pool of blood, the 40-year-old died in hospital.

Police, who were questioning a 32-year-old suspect last night, said the killing was religiously motivated.

Mohammad Faisal, a family friend, said a bearded Muslim wearing a long religious robe entered Mr Shah’s shop and spoke to him in his native language before stabbing him in the head with a kitchen knife.

The implications of this story are deep and important. That Muslims who do not obey the strictest aspects of koranic principles can face lethal consequences anywhere they happen to be. 

The Koran instructs the followers of Mohammed:

O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people.

Islam also holds as a capital offense, the raising of any person, deity or idea to be the equal with the god of Islam, 'Allah'.

This crime is called, 'Shirk' and is the justification for the Sunni branch of Islam to slaughter so many of the Shiia, as the Shiia tend to have saints and shrines to certain historical Muslims in somewhat similar manner to Catholicism. (albeit not for the same reasons and not by the same process)

We see an explanation of this here by several of the world's foremost experts on Islam:

And so at least as one of the reasons that we hear so very little from integrated Muslims is the rational fear of being killed by a religious Muslim more adherent to the sharia. Can we call that Islamophobia?

Other reasons may be that the silent agree with the vocal religious orthodoxy as written in Islamic scripture. 

In Western schools of thought, we often take silence as consent.

Mark Steyn writes on this issue here:

Pace Mr Shah, Scotland is not much of a "Christian nation" these days. Instead, it is "tolerant", "diverse" and "multicultural". But a "tolerant" society determined to tolerate the avowedly intolerant won't be in business for long. Men like Asad Shah's killers are everything the safe-space pansies accuse us "white privilege" types of being: It is Shah's co-religionists who cannot abide the other. They won't tolerate Christians, they won't tolerate Muslims who convert to Christianity, and they won't even tolerate a devout Muslim who commits the sin of offering neighborly greetings on a Christian holiday. And so they killed him by "stamping on his head".


Understanding this issue has become much more than just a question of getting along with our family and friends who do not get this issue in its totality.

It is rapidly becoming a genuinely existential issue for our culture, our laws and values, our very history and indeed for many of us, our lives and certainly the freedom and futures for our children.



Here are a couple of fatwas, or official religious rulings on this issue.

1. Fatwa on wishing the non-Muslims congratulations on their holidays 

Praise be to Allaah.

Greeting the kuffaar on Christmas and other religious holidays of theirs is haraam, by consensus, as Ibn al-Qayyim, may Allaah have mercy on him, said in Ahkaam Ahl al-Dhimmah: "Congratulating the kuffaar on the rituals that belong only to them is haraam by consensus, as is congratulating them on their festivals and fasts by saying ‘A happy festival to you’ or ‘May you enjoy your festival,’ and so on. If the one who says this has been saved from kufr, it is still forbidden. It is like congratulating someone for prostrating to the cross, or even worse than that. It is as great a sin as congratulating someone for drinking wine, or murdering someone, or having illicit sexual relations, and so on. Many of those who have no respect for their religion fall into this error; they do not realize the offensiveness of their actions. Whoever congratulates a person for his disobedience or bid’ah or kufr exposes himself to the wrath and anger of Allaah."

Yep. Saying "Happy Easter" is as great a sin as murdering someone.

Drew Wakariuk…very true. He looked like a decent and happy guy. “It is claimed Mr.Shah was set upon because he belonged to the Ahmadiyya community, which promotes peace and tolerance but has been persecuted by members of orthodox Islamic sects in Pakistan.” God bless Mr.Shah.

There are many of these sleepers just waiting for the call from their devil imam. I work in O&G and there are many of these guys/gals in professional roles, who are befriending their supervisors, who don’t seem to realize that they would just as soon slit their throats, than to look at them. They are quite the butt kissers, and go out of their way to be the best, promise the best, or say whatever it takes for them to have you believe that they are harmless. And once they are in, they get their friends to apply too. Being a woman I get to see them when they don’t think anyone is observing them. There are a few of their women who work here too, and they will never fit in. The hair stands up on the back of my neck anytime I’m near these people. I’ve seen them glare at me, and seconds later, light up and give me a fake smile as they say good morning. Too bad for them, when I see the glares, I get a glimpse of the evil in their souls. Rule of thumb, never trust them or believe anything they say to you. It’s all a big lie, that they hope to hook you in with!

Sean Pension, you’re a coward. You’d probably throw your family under a bus to save yourself.

To quote Mark Steyn, “You can have pluralism and you can have Islam but you can’t have both. Mr. Shah thought he could have both, and so they killed him.”

Muslim Shopkeeper Posted Easter Greeting to ‘My Beloved’ Christians. Hours Later, Police Say He Was Murdered by a Fellow Muslim.

Please Victor Lazlo, Islam is Islam, no modifiers. In the same way an adherent of Islam and its teachings is a Muslim, a Muslim is a Muslim, no modifiers. According to Islam, the so-called “moderate Muslim” that you speak of is regarded as a hypocrite deserving the same harsh treatment as any other infidel.

Main stream media anyone?

BBC attempted to hide the truth on this one as did several other lefty Brit media outlets.

Never met an islamic I would trust.

One of them in Kabul had been a full time employee of a Brit contractor I used to have coffee with about twice a month when I was in Kabul on parts runs from Logar Province..

Eight years they worked together – the employee was the right hand man – making more cash than he could have dreamed.

Had the contractor to the house for supper many times.

Contractor paid for kids education.

Contractor bought them anniversary gifts and such.

Became close friends – or so the contractor thought.

Contractor came to work one morning – employee showed up in company provided vehicle that he used to go back and forth to work in – contractor goes to shake his hand as was the daily morning tradition.

Employee killed contractor – beat him to death with a crow bar.

Happened just outside the gates to KMTC – my main supply camp.

I was not there at the time but it was my crew that cleaned it up after they killed the employee.

The quiet ones are the ones that will kill you – just waiting for the right time.

This is the norm for the Middle East with maybe one or 2 exceptions outside of Israel. This is why they stayed culturally backwards for centuries.

Charles asked, " “where are the calm muslim’s?, and why aren’t they standing with us?”

Too scared that they will be murdered by their own people, no doubt. Sheer common sense indicates that there must be some that are peaceful and not following Islam to the letter like their terrorist Islamic kin. Not that it helps us much that they keep their head down and not speak out against their kin.
commented 2016-03-27 12:32:59 -0400
I don’t think the problem is moderate Muslims given that 96% of the non-combatants killed by radical Islamic regimes and rebels are Muslims – Muslims murdered for their rejection of theocratic tyranny/terrorism.

As you have exposed here, the Islamic fundamentalist violence is as much a war against sects of Islam is it is against Western ideology.

I have to say, when I am in the city that I love and a piece of shit muslim is in the area and speaking their sand ditch pig language, I will be on guard and ready to defend my self at all costs. These people just need to leave. As I have stated in other posts "where are the calm muslim’s?, and why aren’t they standing with us? Well here is the fucking answer… I am sick of this “shit” to no end.

This doesn’t make me racist, this makes me smart and alert. Just keep pushing the calm Canadian, because when we finally snap we will not go alone.

Sean Penson: you without a doubt, have got to be the dumbest animal the Good Lord EVER wrapped a hide on. God Almighty you are ignorant. I hired a man years ago who had an absolutely impressive resume. He had worked in the middle east for 23 years at that time. The man could read and write four languages and one of them was Farsi (sp)? The Arab/Muslim people he was working with had no idea he could understand what they were saying and talking about. He never let them know that he could understand them. He told us in no uncertain terms, what these people say about us and Christianity when they think no one understands is not only sickening, its scary. He told me 9 years ago that we could fight them there, or fight them here. Either way we are going to fight them. They have declared a war against us. My God you cannot be these uneducated. who is paying you to stir up shit on these sites. No human being, raised in North America can be as obtuse as you. You and Gordo Steele shut down the Sun Web site comment sections. I can only hope that when the final days come, these animals find you hiding in your wet soggy underwear and make an example out of you. that is my only hope. There is no other hope for you.

In Canada, Muslims are free to leave Islam. They need not feel “trapped” in some cult. That is what freedom is all about!

Kevin Omar Mohammed was arrested on Saturday March 26, 2016 in Waterloo, Ontario using Bill C-51 citing that the RCMP had fear that Omar Mohammed might commit a terrorism offence.

The Liberals said Bill C-51 was an affront to civil rights , then they quietly supported it and now they have used it to arrest a person who was exhibiting sympathies towards ISIS.

Kevin Omar Mohammed had firearms , however, no one is saying if he was licensed or not. They are , on the other hand, charging him with firearms offences.

Trudeau said that we are not at war with ISIS. Corporal Nathan Cirillo was murdered by an ISIS sympathizer. Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was murdered by an ISIS sympathizer.

Trudeau has made many a statement saying that firearms should be restricted or outright banned following the Australian firearms act as a model.

Trudeau and his mindless Liberal minions will ignore all signs pointing to the fact that Canadians are at risk from these terrorist sympathizers. Trudeau would like to remove firearms from all Canadians leaving us open to, and defenseless against, any future terrorist attack.

What Trudeau does not seem to understand is that ISIS is at war with the world in general and specifically with any NON-MUSLIMS. Just by saying that Canada is not at war with ISIS means nothing. Trudeau has placed Canadians in jeopardy and continues to do so.

Anyone who is not aware that the jihad is underway in Canada is blind.

I am devastated to hear this man has been brutally murdered. I do remember reading his very nice Easter message. And we have thousands of these people being brought into Canada! And we now have Trudeau for sure on ISIS side, unbridled euthanasia even for minors and unrestricted abortion. Canada has become a death mill. And we are adding to it every day. It used to be a lovely country. But it is the fault of Canadians who support these evils. As people so often like to invoke the name of Hitler, it’s worth recalling that Hitler had no power without the support of the people, which was usually silent. Canadians’ allow and allow this stuff before our eyes. No point in blaming it all on Trudeau, and it’s going to get worse. Another 23 jihadist arrested in Toronto today.. and it goes on. Canadians must have an inferiority complex to allow this to go on in our own country.. a total interior transformation of our culture into something brutal and ugly and pro-death.

History will one day show, the ones who took a stand against Islam will be regarded as heroes. The ones who tried to comfort the evil religion will be known as traitors.

4. How about those that want to leave Islam, but do not try to because they do not want to die. It is those that are peaceful.

There are three types of muslims.
1. Radicals that want to cut your head off.
2. Moderates that hope a radical will cut your head off.
3. A dead muslim, one who tries to leave islam.

Lad said, "The Religion of peace will only be peaceful when all others are dead. "

I am not sure even then, but I don’t want to give them a chance to find out.
commented 2016-03-26 18:35:52 -0400
Asad Shah is probably one man out of 2,000,000 who would actually stand up and wish Christians a Happy Easter. There may be a lot more who feel the same way but are to scared to actually admit it. The Religion of peace will only be peaceful when all others are dead.

The murder of Asad explains why I always state, ‘Our war is with all Muslims’, ISIS fights for the UN but they are also Muslims.

Trudeau is a Muslim. Only Canadians will have the duty of bringing about his demise..The sooner the better.

Hilarious, Sean! You are such a goof! No, really, you are the biggest fool I have seen comment on this or any other website in a long time. Blame the victim and not the perpetrator. I can not stop laughing at you.

Sean Penson,

This is not a critical response to your comment like I always do. It is one I would have made in satire, but you beat me to it.

What I am curious about is the theta reference?
