Britains 1st Muslim MP to quit - getting death threats from ... fellow Muslims

Britain's first Muslim MP is being hounded out of office by death threats.

Labour MP Mohammad Sarwar says he is stepping down after his family received the death threats linked to a gang he helped convict for a racist murder. The 54-year-old has told party activists he will not be contesting his Glasgow Central seat at the next election.

He says the gang is linked to racist murderers Imran Shahid, Zeeshan Shahid and Mohammed Faisal Mushtaq.

The three were jailed for life last year for their part in the killing of Glasgow teenager Kriss Donald, who was kidnapped, tortured and killed in Glasgow in 2004.

No he's not! According to IRNA he's retiring but he's not recieving death threats. Who ya gonna believe?
