Islamic Centre to Open on Site of Kriss Donald's Murder

Kriss Donald was brutally murdered in 2004 by a Pakistani gang seeking to "Chop them [any random white male] up, take out their eyes and stab them."

Kriss was abducted whilst walking with a friend who managed to escape. As he was pulled into the car by at least 5 adult males he could be heard crying: "I'm only 15. What did I do?"

Wikipedia goes some way towards describing the almost unimaginable agonies inflicted on Kriss before his death:

On 16 March 2004, Donald was abducted from Kenmure Street by five men associated with a local Pakistani gang led by Imran Shahid. The kidnapping was ostensibly revenge for an attack on Shahid at a nightclub in Glasgow city centre the night before by a local white gang, and Donald was chosen as an example of a "white boy from the McCulloch Street area" despite having no involvement in the nightclub attack or in any gang activity. [1] Donald was taken on a 200-mile journey to Dundee and back while his kidnappers made phone calls looking for a house to take him to. Having no success at this, they returned to Glasgow and took him to the Clyde Walkway, near Celtic Football Club's training ground.[2]

There, they held his arms and stabbed him 13 times. He sustained internal injuries to three arteries, one of his lungs, his liver and a kidney. He was castrated, had his tongue cut out, was doused in petrol, set on fire and left to die.[3]

The five men convicted of the abduction and murder were convicted of racially aggravated offences. After the murder, some of Donald's attackers fled the United Kingdom and sought refuge in Pakistan. Three suspects were arrested in Pakistan in July 2005 and extradited to the UK in October 2005, following the intervention of Mohammed Sarwar, the MP for Glasgow Central.

Obviously, the BBC didn't feel that society could draw any useful lessons from this incident, unlike, say, the killing of Stephen Lawrence, and it was largely ignored by the mainstream media.

When they did mention it, it was to pontificate about how such an act should not be allowed to "stir up racial tensions" and "harm community relations," which are still going just swimmingly by all accounts. Labour MSP Gordon Burns even memorably said of the abduction, mutilation, castration, burning alive and murder of young Kriss:

"Every area, particularly in a city, has young men getting into bother from time to time."

Nice.

The News of the World reported yesterday that community relations are still going so well in Pollockshields, the area Kriss came from, that there are regularly armed clashes between white and Asian gangs.

The solution? Well, the heroic Muslim MP Mohammed Sarwar, which the Wikipedia entry gushes over so, believes he has it - an Islamic cultural centre near the site of Kriss' abduction!

Now that's cultural sensitivity for you. Not to worry though - the centre will be used to "provide information to Muslims and non-Muslims".

Here is the NotW article in full:

A ROW has erupted over plans to build an Islamic school near the spot where tragic race-hate victim Kriss Donald was abducted.

Worried locals fear the move could fuel tensions in the area - which they claim is already plagued by clashes between white and Asian gangs.

And they believe the proposal, put forward by Glasgow MP Mohammed Sarwar, could DIVIDE the fragile community in Pollokshields, Glasgow.

One 48-year-old resident said: "This would be totally inappropriate and insensitive. It will harm community relations, which are already strained."

Tragic Kriss, 15, was snatched from the street by a gang of racist thugs - led by brutal Imran Shahid, 33. The monsters stabbed the terrified youngster before setting him on fire while he was still alive.

The killing in March 2004 was one of Scotland's most chilling crimes and shocked the nation. Shahid, his brother, Zeeshan Shahid, 32, and Mohammed Faisal Mushtaq, 34, were convicted of the murder.

The brothers were caged for at least 25 years and Mushtaq was sentenced to 22 years.

A shrine to Kriss has been erected - close to the site of a local bowling club, which is the subject of a planning application in relation to the school.

A spokesman for Glasgow City Council said: "The applicant would like to convert the building into one which will house the Islamic Academy of Scotland and provide information for Muslims and non-Muslims."

We have left immigration far behind now - this is truly colonisation.
