    The man accused of murdering Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah has issued a statement saying he carried out the killing because he believed Mr Shah had "disrespected" Islam. Tanveer Ahmed, 32, from Bradford, is accused of killing Mr Shah outside his shop in Glasgow almost a fortnight ago. In the statement he denied the incident had anything to do with Christianity. Mr Ahmed claimed Asad Shah had "disrespected" Islam by claiming to be a prophet. The shopkeeper, an Ahmadi Muslim, who had moved from Pakistan to Glasgow almost 20 years ago, was found with serious injuries outside his shop on Minard...

    Anti-terror police have launched an investigation after it emerged that the head of religious events at Glasgow Central Mosque, Sabir Ali, held senior positions in the UK branch of the group Sipah-e-Sahaba (SSP) – an organisation responsible for terrorist atrocities in Pakistan. In documents uncovered by the BBC, the organisation's own publication suggests that both Ali and Hafiz Abdul Hamid, a leader at Edinburgh's Polwarth Mosque, had connections with SSP after it was banned. SSP was proscribed by the UK government in 2001 and then by the government of Pakistan in 2002 for violence against the Shi’a community.

    The spiritual leader of Scotland's biggest mosque has praised an Islamist assassin amid fresh concerns about the threat of radicalism at the Muslim centre of worship. Habib ur Rehman, the imam of Glasgow Central Mosque, said extremist Mumtaz Qadri was a "true Muslim" and equated his actions with the French resistance against the Nazis during World War Two. He made his remarks last month as he protested the execution of Qadri for the 2011 murder of Salman Taseer, the governor of Punjab who had championed the rights of Christians being persecuted under blasphemy laws.

    The Scotsman ^ | 11-26-2013 | EMMA COWING
    Author Adam Ardrey claims that instead of the romantic English king of legend who lived at Camelot – which is often said to be Tintagel in Cornwall or in Wales – Arthur was actually Arthur Mac Aedan, the sixth-century son of an ancient King of Scotland, whose Camelot was a marsh in Argyll. He also suggests that Arthur pulled the sword Excalibur from a stone at Dunadd near Kilmartin, died near Falkirk and was buried on the Hebridean island of Iona, which he declares to be Avalon. Ardrey, an amateur historian who works as an advocate in Edinburgh and previously...

    Maybe complete and total inclusivity isn’t as easy as it sounds. The organizers of Free Pride Glasgow in Scotland have hit a snag in their mission to plan a totally inclusive event: Some activists think drag queens are offensive to transgender people, others think banning drag queens is offensive to transgender drag queens, and still others think allowing only transgender drag queens is offensive to cisgender drag queens.

Police then rushed to Grosvenor Cinema in Glasgow's west end where they arrested three women. Cinema visitors also claimed the man had been glassed and that staff were forced to wipe blood from seats before the next screening of the film.
