An online crowdfunding page that was set up to support the family of a moderate Muslim man who was stabbed and killed in Scotland last week for wishing Christians a happy Easter has surpassed over $150,000 in donations in just over a week.
Asad Shah, a 40-year old shopkeeper who was a member of the peaceful Ahmadiyya sect of Islam, was stabbed to death outside his store in the Shawlands area of Glasgow last Thursday.

In the case of F.G. v. Sweden, the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights ruled that the Swedish government must give an Iranian Muslim man who converted to Christianity in Sweden a fair assessment of how his conversion will put him in danger back home before he can be sent back to Iran to face persecution.
