Heart Surgeon Mohammed Asif Suspended For 2nd Time In 4 Years Accused Of Inappropriate Behaviour

Mohammed Asif  a heart surgeon has been suspended for second time in four years amid police probe into allegations of  inappropriate behaviour. This further backs up what i had previously said regarding the paedophile Muslim police detective. That however respectable a Muslim may seem on the outside, that scratch beneath the surface and you will find exactly the same woman hating, sex obsessed warped mindset as you would do in a Muslim takeaway worker or taxi driver who had been brain washed by Islam.

A heart surgeon was ­suspended from his job for the second time in four years amid claims of inappropriate behaviour.

Mohammed Asif, a ­consultant cardiothoracic ­surgeon at ­Glasgow’s Golden Jubilee National Hospital, was probed by police after an alleged incident at the hospital in February.

 

Asif, 48, who lives in an £850,000 house in Bearsden, near Glasgow, has worked at the hospital since 2011.

He was removed from his post pending an internal and criminal investigation.

But he was allowed to return to his job after police dropped their investigation due to a lack of ­evidence and health chiefs ­concluded their own inquiry.

In 2013, he was at the centre of separate allegations at Crosshouse Hospital, near Kilmarnock, about his ­conduct towards a colleague.

The woman did not ­complain about his behaviour but employees who allegedly witnessed it raised the issue with management.

He was also ­suspended from the Golden ­Jubilee ­following the alleged Crosshouse incident but was allowed to return within eight weeks.

Asif was educated at Oxford and Cambridge and has worked across the north of England.

Police said a complaint of inappropriate ­behaviour was received on ­February 9 about a Golden Jubilee staff member but no one had been reported to the fiscal after an investigation.

The Golden ­Jubilee, run by the Golden Jubilee Foundation, have a world-class centre which provides treatments such as cardiac bypass surgery and heart transplants. A hospital spokesman said a staff member was suspended ­following a complaint and an ­investigation launched.

He added: “This ­investigation has ­concluded and resulted in the individual ­returning to work.

“Although we cannot provide details around the investigation due to confidentiality issues, we can state that the ­complaint was not relating to any aspect of patient care at the Golden Jubilee.”

He added: “In 2013, a member of staff from the Golden Jubilee was suspended following a ­complaint. The investigation was ­concluded and resulted in the individual ­returning to work.”

 

NHS Ayrshire and Arran, who run ­Crosshouse, said: “While this ­individual visited to carry out clinics, they were never employed by NHS ­Ayrshire and Arran.

“Four years ago, we received a complaint and took appropriate and immediate action.”

Asif was not available at his home yesterday. His wife Shefali Chowdhury said: “I don’t know anything about this.”

Two ‘Asian’ Weirdos Pester Four Women In A Dumbarton Park

Concern for the future safety of females who visit  Levengrove Park in Dumbarton after reports of two ‘Asian’ oddballs pestering females walking in the park. Witnesses described the pair of Muslim creeps as ‘weirdos’. Unfortunately that hardly narrows down the potential suspects as 99% of Muslim males could also be described as weirdos. You only have to take a look at their following of the backwards and outdated Islam, and the way it rules over their entire lives to realise they are all weirdos

Witness took photo of the two weirdos pestering one female

POLICE patrols are expected to be increased in Levengrove Park after two men were seen pestering four women who were out for a stroll.

The creeps also asked to take pictures of women’s children.

One of the women has spoken out about the weirdos and warned others to be on their guard.

The incidents took place in the park on Tuesday, July 11.

The two men are described as of Asian descent, one in a suit and another in a tracksuit. It is understood they are aged between 40 and 50.

One dogwalker, who The Reporter is not naming, described her ordeal.

She said: “As they passed me, they looked me up and down, making me feel very uncomfortable.

“As I got back onto the path I saw them talking to two other females who both had dogs and a little boy.”

However, the woman told how the men later confronted her when she was seated at a bench.

She said: “I decided to sit on a bench to let them pass but they then stopped and started to hang around.

“I remained seated for 10 minutes but they approached me, boxing me in on the bench.”

The men are then understood to have quizzed the woman about a phone in their possession, before asking for her address, whether she was a student and why she was wearing crutches.

They also wanted to know how much her dog was worth.

Things took a sinister turn when the men, who up to that point spoke English, began speaking in a foreign language.

She continued: “At this point the man in the tracksuit got up off the bench and pointed at the view. And, bearing in mind they spoke in English the full time, they then began to speak in another language with the two men then switching positions and the man in the suit then sitting down next to me.”

The men also asked her “how life was treating her.”

The quick-thinking female got up and continued to the park exit.

She added: “When leaving I met the two ladies that I seen earlier on to then find out the two same men had done a similar thing- but asked to take a photo of her child!

 

“I got straight on my phone and remained at the exit of the park while I watched them approach another female who was alone with her dog!

“The behaviour was a cause of concern.”

She added: “In total I witnessed them approach four different females.”

The woman has shared her concerns on Facebook and her ordeal has already been shared more than 2400 times on social media.

A police spokesperson said: “Police Scotland received a number of calls relating to the behaviour of two men in Levengrove Park in Dumbarton on Tuesday evening, 11 July 2017.

“The reports related to the men approaching women who were walking in the park and engaging them in conversation which made them feel uncomfortable.

“Advice has been given to the woman and Police Scotland wold ask that if anyone else has experienced such an incident then they should contact them at Dumbarton on the 101 number.”

Anti-White Hate Crime : Police Hunt Group Of Racist Muslims Who Abused Female On Train

Another ‘anti-white’ hate incident committed by racist Muslims against a female train commuter. The woman was subjected to abuse of both a racist and a sexual nature on board the busy train.

Men sought over ‘white trash’ racist abuse on train

British Transport Police are attempting to trace a group of Asian men who racially abused a woman on a train.

The victim was targeted on the 17:36 train from Wishaw to Glasgow Central on Friday 14 October.

The group took pictures of the woman, called her “white trash” and other names, and made sexual gestures before they got off the train at Cambuslang.

The woman was not physically harmed but left distressed by the incident. Police have appealed for witnesses.

The men are described as Asian, in their 20s and all about 5ft 8in tall.

One was of medium build and was wearing a black jacket, dark jogging bottoms and dark trainers.

Another was wearing blue jeans and the third man was wearing grey Nike tracksuit bottoms.

PC Victoria Graham said: “This incident happened on a packed commuter train and so I think there may have been a lot of people who witnessed the incident but may not have realised the distress it was causing the victim.

“She was very upset and distressed by what had happened and for someone to be made to feel like this is completely unacceptable. If anyone saw what happened, please do come forward and let us know.”

Hate Preacher Banned In Pakistan Yet Allowed In UK To Speak At Scottish Mosque

The Sunday Post

Common sense has once again gone out of the window in favour of senseless Muslim appeasement.A Pakistani hate preacher deemed that much of an extremist agitator that he is banned from publicly speaking in his own Islamic homeland is allowed to enter the UK to speak at a mosque in Falkirk, Scotland. 

Radical cleric  Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri makes no secret of his support for those who murder in the name of Allah!!  You would think alarm bells would be ringing but no it doesn’t seem to be a problem for the powers that be as they once again bend over backwards to accommodate islamofascists.

Note self appointed judge, jury and executioner of all things that he doesn’t like, Mr Fiyaz Mughals rather lame statement in the article. This is the same guy that lobbied the government until he got leading counterjihad experts Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller barred from the UK who do not support murders or promote violence.

 

Fury as hate preacher linked to murder of Glasgow shopkeeper cleared to speak in Scotland
Allama Syed Muzaffar,

A BANNED Pakistani cleric whose warped ideology is linked to the murder of popular Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah is to spread his message of sectarian intolerance to Scotland.

Hard-line preacher Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri is due to speak at Falkirk Central Mosque later this month – despite praising a murderer linked to the killing of Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah, who was stabbed 27 times after wishing his customers a “Happy Easter”.

The Sunday Post can reveal the zealot has been labelled a “firebrand” by the authorities in Karachi, Pakistan’s largest city, and barred from preaching his incendiary sermons.

Yet despite the ban imposed on him in Pakistan, Qadri has faced no obstacle against his speaking at the Falkirk place of worship on December 15.
Flyers promoting the event are currently being circulated and appear on the mosque’s Facebook page.

While there is no suggestion regular worshippers share Qadri’s views, the development has concerned politicians, and comes as Nicola Sturgeon prepared to visit members of the Glasgow mosque where Asad Shah worshipped today.

MP Siobhain McDonagh, who has campaigned for a clampdown on extremists preachers entering the UK, last night said she was shocked Qadri was being allowed to travel from Pakistan.

She said: “I’m amazed that somebody can be banned in Karachi but get entry clearance to the UK.

“The Home Office has got to stop hiding behind the line it does not comment on individual cases because this is a real issue for everyone in the UK.”

Allama Syed Muzaffar (with sword)Allama Syed Muzaffar (with sword)

Allama Syed Muzaffar Qadri is a supporter of Islamist assassin Mumtaz Qadri, who murdered popular Pakistani politician Salman Taseer for speaking out against the country’s brutal blasphemy laws in January, 2011.

The same brutal killer was also idolised by Bradford taxi driver Tanveer Ahmed, 32, who butchered peace-loving shopkeeper Asad Shah, 40, in a copycat killing the day before Good Friday this year.

The Sunday Post has obtained and translated footage of Qadri delivering sermons, where he praises the political murder which inspired a bloody rampage by the knife-wielding cab driver.

The authorities in Karachi have described Qadri as acting in a manner “prejudicial to public safety and maintenance of public order”.

He was banned from addressing crowds in October, according to a legal document seen by The Sunday Post.

As news of his arrival in Scotland emerged, there have been calls to have him banned.

Fiyaz Mughal, director of anti-extremist group Faith Matters, said: “No individual who promotes sectarianism internationally should be allowed into the UK as there is a risk statements would be made that further inflame issues in the UK or create issues that our country does not need.”

Scottish Conservative equalities spokeswoman Annie Wells MSP has also raised questions about the event.

“If this individual is deemed too extreme for Pakistan, then that tells you all you need to know about his views,” she said.

“There’s no place for this kind of hate preaching in Scotland, and we shouldn’t tolerate it.”

Sources in Pakistan claim Qadri’s speeches have become highly controversial in his homeland.

Our source said: “It’s amazing British authorities are allowing someone to spout this nonsense in the UK – especially since he’s banned in Pakistan.

“It gives people the wrong idea about Islam and is probably the reason you have people like Tanveer Ahmed getting radicalised and committing cold-blooded murder.”

In Falkirk, people were shocked at the planned event.

One local pensioner, Duncan Walker, 69, said: “It depends on his ideas. We don’t want him recruiting young people into these situations, especially with IS in Syria.

“He’s a radical. There’s an agenda you could follow. There’s got to be a limit.

“You can’t talk about hate, that’s not free speech.”

Michael McMurtagh, 44, who works as a driver in Camelon, near Falkirk, said: “The murder of the man in Glasgow’s south side was truly appalling.

“Everyone across the country was shocked by it.

“It doesn’t sit right that someone who shares the same ideology as the killer is addressing people here.”

Last week Tanveer Ahmed, who claimed to have killed Mr Shah for “disrespecting” Islam failed to have his minimum 27-year jail-term cut.

The Shah family moved to Scotland from Pakistan in the 1990s to escape persecution as a result of their religious beliefs.

Ahmed, a father-of-three from Bradford who did not know Mr Shah, claimed to have been offended by clips the shopkeeper had posted online which he said “disrespected the Prophet Muhammad”.

On the day he carried out the murder, he watched a clip featuring Mr Shah on his mobile phone as he travelled to Glasgow.

Ahmed was heard to say in a phone message: “Listen to this guy, something needs to be done, it needs nipped in the bud.”

At the shop, Ahmed warned the shopkeeper he was there to kill him and asked him to stop claiming to be a prophet.

Mr Shah’s brother and a shop assistant tried to fend him off as he launched his attack on the popular businessman, who was described by locals as a “pillar of the community”.

Ahmed was sentenced to life at the High Court in Glasgow after admitting the murder. He stabbed Mr Shah 27 times in a cold-blooded “tribute” to his hero Qadri. Appeal judges have now ruled Ahmed’s jail term was legally sound.

Last night, a spokeswoman for the Home Office said it would not comment on individual cases.

One of the organisers of the event said: “This is the first I’m hearing he’s banned in Pakistan.

“There is a lot of political things happening there at the moment so it wouldn’t surprise me if he was banned.

“I don’t think he’s particularly extreme.

“I’ve not watched any of his sermons and don’t know what he’ll talk about.

“He’s part of a variety of speakers we’ve got this month.”

Moaning Muslims Claim Discrimination Over Catholic School Prioritising Baptised Children

SHOCK!!  HORROR!! An oversubscribed Catholic school planning to prioritise  children  baptised over those who are not including Muslims. Well Muslim parents are kicking off now that despite it being a Catholic school (which they are not) that the decision is discriminatory to Muslims.

Spitting their dummy out like a spoilt child and playing the victim is one of the very few things that Muslims actually excel at.

The Muslim parents claim they wish their children to a faith-based education. In that case why would they want a faith that is based around Jesus being the Son of God? Something that the Islamic religion says is untrue.  

Catholic schools in the UK are expected to accept a certain % pupils of different faiths anyway. They have not really been faith based schools since children were taught by nuns and monks years ago. Other than the odd trip to the  church for mass and maybe an extra hours worth of religious studies (which can be opted out of by parents) the education is the same as any other school based on the national curriculum.

Most likely this is the best performing school in the area and that is the real reason why they want their children to go there !! 

MUSLIM parents have branded plans to prioritise places in denominational schools for Catholics as discriminatory and divisive.

The concerns were raised during a consultation into proposals by East Renfrewshire Council to give priority to baptised children if its top-performing Catholic schools – such as St Ninian’s in Giffnock – become oversubscribed.

While the existence of state-funded Catholic schools is enshrined in legislation there is no such educational provision for other faiths.

As a result, many families of other religions choose a Catholic education and in East Renfrewshire 27 per cent of Muslim children go to denominational schools – some 260 pupils.

In a review of the council’s consultation, national schools body Education Scotland stated: “The proposal was seen by respondents of the Muslim faith to be discriminatory or divisive against other faith groups and that implementing the proposal could result in less diversity within denominational schools.”

Concerns were also expressed by the parent council of St Cadoc’s Primary School in Newton Mearns who noted their school had a number of Muslim families who disagreed with the proposal.

The council’s summary of consultation responses stated: “It was deeply regrettable in their view that the approach would adversely affect some families and that the proposal is seen by some in their community as divisive.”

East Renfrewshire Muslim Forum said many Muslim parents wanted to send their children to a faith school and, with no local state-funded Muslim school available, chose a Catholic school for a faith-based education.

Families also raised concerns the council has spent £18 million on a new joint faith campus for Catholic and Jewish pupils but there is no similar provision for Muslims who make up one third of the school population of the existing Jewish school.
Despite the controversy, East Renfrewshire Council has recommended approval of the plan to give priority to baptised Catholics.

A spokeswoman said: “The authority is not excluding any group through the proposal, but merely seeking to form arrangements to be able to prioritise places should a school be oversubscribed by catchment pupils.”

The council has also promised to step up efforts to crack down on families who try and cheat their way into East Renfrewshire schools.

Mhairi Shaw, the council’s director of education, said extra surveillance and even criminal proceedings would be considered to prevent such fraud.

She said: “We will be asking for rental agreements to be for
a minimum of one year instead of the six months previously asked for.

“Where we have significant doubt about where an applicant resides, or if we receive allegations of false information, the steps we take may include surveillance.

“Any attempts to obtain a place by deception may result in consideration of criminal proceedings.”

The education committee will consider the report next month, with the changes applying from 2017.

Race Relations Worker Guilty Of Racist Abuse : Muslim Committed Hate Crime:

Heard the one about the Muslim race relations worker found guilty of racist abuse against white British people??  Seriously you couldn’t make this shit up.

Muslim Shafiq Mohammed is employed in the very lucrative race relations industry supporting those claiming asylum in the UK. Finding them a nice house to live in and sorting their benefits out and making sure they are nicely settled. He was arrested for racially abusing 4 white Scottish people and resisting arrest.

Only days after the horrendous massacre of innocents in Paris committed by Muslim savages. Leftist do gooders, Muslims and pro refugee groups organised a ‘Welcome to Scotland’ rally for 150 Syrian asylum seekers arriving in Ayrshire.  Racist Muslim  Shafiq Mohammed was one of those at the rally welcoming his fellow Muslims to their new home.

Concerned by events in Paris, given that many of those involved in the attack were people who had arrived in Europe as asylum seekers. A counter protest was arranged by local people worried about the negative effect 150 Muslim males landing on your doorstep may have. The 3 men and 1 woman who were the victims of  Shafiq Mohammed’s racist hate crime were part of this group.

A race relations worker has been convicted of racially abusing a group of Scots at a rally to welcome Syrian refugees to Scotland.

Shafiq Mohammed, 50, was also found guilty of resisting arrest at a demonstration in Monkton, South Ayrshire, on 15 November 2015.

The former Scottish Refugee Council worker broke through a police cordon to verbally abuse a woman and three men.

The rally took place hours after the Paris terrorist attacks.

Ayr Sheriff Court heard how tempers flared among members of the Scottish Defence League and pro-refugee demonstrators.

It followed 150 refugees being granted emergency accommodation at the Ayrshire town’s Adamton Country House Hotel.

Mohammed denied behaving in a racially aggravated manner which was intended to cause alarm and distress.

He claimed the four witnesses had conspired to make up the allegations against him.

Sheriff Robert Weir QC found him guilty on both charges and sentence was deferred.

The court heard Mohammed had previously worked for property firm Orchard & Shipman, which has been paid more than £60m to house refugees in Scotland.

He is currently involved in the Asylum Seeker Housing (ASH) Project – an organisation campaigning on asylum seeker housing issues in the west of Scotland.

Muslim Sex Pest In Court Over Kebab Shop Attacks

Women are not safe even when engaging  Muslim males carrying out relevantly simple tasks in what you would imagine as a safe-ish environment  such as buying a donner kebab from a take away. 

Hassan Al Kheteeb has pleaded not guilty to three charges involving the two women for alleged offences said to have taken place at the Mr Kebab take-away in Glasgow Road.

A MAN denies sexually assaulting two women in a kebab shop in Dumbarton after allegedly pulling the shutters down and locking them in.

Hassan Al Kheteeb has pleaded not guilty to three charges involving the two women for alleged offences said to have taken place at the Mr Kebab take-away in Glasgow Road.

Al Kheteeb was appearing at Dumbarton Sheriff Court in connection with the alleged incidents which are said to have taken place on occasions in July last year.

The 30-year-old, who lives in Raglan Street in the Woodside area of Glasgow, faces two charges in relation to one of the women, the first charge alleges that between July 21 and 24 he tried to induce the woman to stay over night with him and made remarks of a sexual nature towards her.
The second alleges that on July 28 and 29 he lowered the shutters of the shop and locked them, detaining her against her will, he then instructed her to dance, chased her and carried out a sexual assault.

He is also accused of pursuing her in a motor vehicle and instructing her to get in.

The other charge involving another woman alleges that on the same dates he lowered the shutters of the shop, locked them and refused to let her leave, detaining her against her will.

He is then alleged to have carried out a sexual assault on the woman and forcibly handled her body.

And then on a second occasion it’s alleged that he induced her to enter the rear of the shop where he is said to have sexually assaulted her.

Sheriff Simon Pender continued the matter until July 7 and continued Al Kheteeb’s bail.

A trial date has been scheduled for July 19.

My Thoughts On Asad Shad Murder : Police Treat Killing As Religiously Motivated

Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah , a devout Muslim posted a heartfelt Easter message to ‘beloved Christian nation’ hours before he was brutally murdered in a savage attack. Police have said the killing was religiously motivated.

The scene of the murder in Shawlands last night and the victim, shopkeeper Asad Shah

Finding a devout Muslim who is fully integrated in British society, respectful of their adopted nation and its Christian beliefs are few and far between. Almost like finding the needle in a haystack. Murder victim Asad Shah by all accounts was one of those rare few.

His death is a loss to us all. It is people like Mr Shah who can make the real difference. Showing other Muslims that the way forward is to adapt, show respect and become part of society. Instead of showing contempt for others whilst making demands expecting everybody else to adapt to Muslims whilst giving nothing back. Unfortunately there are not enough Muslims with his kind of mindset within our society, now there is one less 

Just hours before his murder Mr Shah posted on his facebook  at 5.10pm, read: “Good Friday and a very Happy Easter, especially to my beloved Christian nation… Let’s follow the real footstep of beloved holy Jesus Christ and get the real success in both worlds.”

image: http://i3.dailyrecord.co.uk/incoming/article7625919.ece/BINARY/Screen-Shot-2016-03-25-at-083104.pngMr Shah posted this message on his Facebook page just hours before he was brutally stabbed to death
Mr Shah posted this message on his Facebook page just hours before he was brutally stabbed to death

 

In previous posts, he also called “unconditional real love for all mankind”. This morning, a neighbour of his store was shocked at his killing.The man – who asked not to be named – said: “I can’t believe this. At first I thought there had been a car accident further along the road. “Mr Shah is a decent man. He is very quiet but friendly. This is terrible”

Police have arrested 2 unnamed men for the killing. The only other info they have said is that it was ‘religiously motivated’ which is kind of open to interpretation.  The natural assumption that people will make is that Asid Shah was murdered because he was Muslim by a bigoted non-Muslim.

If this was the case let me make my thoughts clear, those responsible are utter scum. I hope they get locked up and throw away the key. There is absolutely no excuse for murder or any kind of violence against an innocent person. Doing so makes you just as bad as the savage terrorists blowing people up who have no value of life. 

People like that are certainly not on my side. They are against me and all those dedicated people who put effort into raising awareness about the threat of Islam. Any steps forward we have made will be instantly erased by some idiot who thinks killing somebody for just being Muslim is going to achieve something. All it does is give people a further excuse not to listen and tar everybody with the same brush.

But could it be possible that the term  ‘religiously motivated’ with no mention of racism or islamophobia is because the killers just so happen to be Muslim. The  ‘religiously motivated’ bit being that extremist Muslims did not appreciate his earlier heartfelt messages promoting tolerance to infidels. After all we know how quick Muslims are to flip out and use violence when they dislike something.

Until the police release more details we will not know for sure. Either way the killers are scumbags who need locking up as without them on the streets the nation will be a better place.

RIP Mr Shah

Muslims Play Race Card Over Ramadam Mosque Noise: Not Wanting To Listen To Loudspeakers Of Prayers Is Islamophobic

Another of those blood boiling moments. Give Muslims an inch and they take a mile. Once they have that mile they still will not be satisfied so with a little help and encouragement from leftist PC loving appeasers they will carry on taking more and more whilst giving nothing back…

Locals near to the Blackhall Mosque in Edinburgh who are facing a month of ramadam prayers blasted out of loudspeakers have been accused of  being islamophobic and racist for not wanting their eardrums polluted by Muslim prayers in Arabic after a resident suggested on social media it may be worth stocking up on ear plugs. A fair suggestion, within the law and saves a possible arrest for cutting the speaker wire or taking a hammer to it.

You try blasting music through loudspeakers that the whole estate can hear. Chances are you will have a community support officer knocking on your door and facing an ASBO. But Muslim prayers are different and you are EXPECTED to not be pissed off about it as that would be offensive to Muslims. As for the council agreeing …hang your heads in shame!

The post by the EH4 Residents Association referred to noise concerns surrounding Blackhall Mosque. Picture: Jane Barlow

A SOCIAL media post advising residents living next to a mosque to “stock up on headphones and earplugs” during Ramadan has been branded “racist and Islamophobic” by equality leaders.

The Facebook message was posted on a page used by EH4 Residents Association and removed after the group was contacted by the Evening News.

The post referring to the Blackhall mosque.The post referring to the Blackhall mosque.

The organisation was set up to represent residents living in Drylaw Crescent, Drylaw Gardens and House O’Hill Road, and works to address concerns over issues such as crime, traffic and street lighting.

Posted on May 30, the message read: “Ramadan is early this year. Jun 18-Jul 17. If you live close to the [Blackhall] mosque and have to stay put, might be an idea to stock up on headphones/
earplugs etc.”

Foysol Choudhury, chairman of the Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equality Council, said the post would have been seen as offensive to Muslims. He said: “For anyone to refer to the use of headphones to avoid hearing prayers from a mosque is a hateful religious and racial insult that is based on Islamophobia. (KC*Islam is not a race and im sure its the level of the noise they are concerned about the same way you wouldnt want to listen to your neighbours heavy metal or happy hardcore blasting out every night) 

“When a group of people talk about something in that way, it’s going to go to more people. It expresses an undercurrent of hatred. Just giving ideas to people is dangerous.” He added: “What has been posted is encouraging other people to open up a chapter and start talking negatively. There should be a strong line drawn here – not only for Muslims but for all religions.” (KC*Common stealth jihad tactic attempting to silence anything bad about Muslims or Islam)

Political figures said they were aware of past concerns over noise and congestion caused by parked cars around Blackhall Mosque. But they stressed mosque leaders had taken steps to address these, adding that no recent complaints had been received.

Councillor Iain Whyte, Conservative member for Inverleith, said: “I know the mosque has gone out of its way to reduce any noise that comes from the building.

“My understanding is that if somebody feels offended for reasons of race or religion then that is an offence. I would hope that if people have said something that has caused offence, they would recognise that and apologise for it.”  (KC*Since when has having an opinion been an offence)

Councillor Lesley Hinds, Labour member for Inverleith, said: “It’s clear [that] people have found this insulting and I welcome the fact that the group has taken account of that and taken [the post] down.”

Police Scotland said it had not received any complaints, but said an assessment would be carried out to see if further investigation was needed.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Muslim calendar and is observed worldwide as a period of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Quran – Islam’s central religious text – to the prophet Muhammad.

The Evening News made repeated attempts to speak to the EH4 group, but no-one responded to our messages.

Leaders at Blackhall Mosque also declined to comment.
