UK should recognise Islamophobia as a crime: Victim’s daughter
Mohammed Saleem, 82, was stabbed to death on his way home after prayers by a man who later planted bombs outside mosques.
On the night of April 29, 2013, Mohammed Saleem, a retired grandfather, was walking home from prayers at his local mosque in Small Heath, a Birmingham suburb.
At 82, he was using a walking stick.
Suddenly, Pavlo Lapshyn, a 25-year-old Ukrainian PhD student, stabbed the elderly man three times in the back with a hunting knife, killing him.
