To be expected, no?
It’s the sole reason why there are so many ”mystery” cults in the Middle East, and why they don’t accept new members outside their own numbers, for in doing so they invite massacres by the irate Sunni/Shiite majority. They are only tolerated to a certain extent, if they cross some type of taboo, then the streets fill up with their blood. A Sunni calling an Ahmadi Muslim an apostate is nothing new.
NOTE: We need to end the practice of devout muslim “experts” being sought for their advice to government officials and to public ínstitutions.
Top expert on Islamist radicalisation is investigated by university for saying slain Muslim shopkeeper was ‘not a real Muslim’
- Researcher Shiraz Maher wrote he does not ‘regard Ahmadis as Muslims’
- Came days after man admitted killing Asad Shah for ‘disrespecting’ Islam
- Glasgow shopkeeper Mr Shah was part of the the Ahmadiyya community
- Maher has apologised for remarks which are being investigated by King’s College London
A top expert on Islamist radicalisation is being investigated for saying that a slain Muslim shopkeeper was ‘not a real Muslim’, it has been reported.
Shiraz Maher, a researcher at King’s College London, wrote on Facebook that he does not ‘regard Ahmadis as Muslims’ – days after a taxi driver admitted killing Asad Shah because he ‘disrespected’ Islam’.
Mr Shah, part of the Ahmadiyya community, was knifed to death in his shop in what was feared at the time to have been a sectarian attack against the peace-loving branch of Islam he followed.

Earlier this month, taxi driver Tanveer Ahmed, accused of his murder, said through his lawyer that he killed the much-loved family man because he had claimed to be ‘a prophet’.
Days later Mr Maher, a senior research fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation, reportedly wrote on Facebook: ‘I really wonder if I’m missing something here but I don’t regard Ahmadis as Muslim.’
