Muslim pensioner’s killer jailed for life
The widow of a Muslim pensioner who was killed by racists after they falsely accused him of grooming white girls has described how she struggles to explain to their grandchildren that he died because of his faith.
Mushin Ahmed, 81, was punched, kicked and stamped upon while walking to a mosque for early morning prayers in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. The town has been at the heart of a scandal involving gangs of mainly Asian paedophiles sexually abusing white girls. There was no suggestion that Mr Ahmed, who had 14 grandchildren, was implicated.
