A GoFundMe page set up to raise money for Mr. Shah’s family has reached almost £18,000, as people sympathetically gave in memory of the genial shopkeeper who was murdered in Glasgow on Good Friday's eve.
The Devout Muslim had really hoped to reach out to Christians in order to understand the essence of easter, and was even due to host a Google hangout before he was brutally murdered last thursday.
Neighbours of the slain Mr. Shah who created the page said; "Mr. Shah was a popular, well respected and much loved member of our community and his death has devastated many.
"He was a warm and friendly man and he always went out of his way to make time to talk to you – he was more than just our local shopkeeper. He was a friend to many.
"It quickly became clear to us in the aftermath of this tragedy that the people of Shawlands (and wider) were looking for a way to show their support to Asad’s family and we thought this would be a fitting way to do so."
Police are still actively looking into the homicide case which they have now confirmed as being "religiously motivated."
