Beaten for being Muslim

Beaten For Being MuslimMuslims have called for greater police protection following a wave of Islamophobic hate in Scotland after the 7/7 bombings.

In one of the worst incidents, Mohammed Shezad, 31, and another family member were viciously attacked by a gang outside their business in the Dennistoun area of Glasgow.

The attack left Shezad in intensive care fighting for his life. He suffered multiple stab wounds to his chest, arm, face and skull.
