Terror police are investigating if Qari Jalal Uddin was murdered because he tried to stop youngsters from being radicalised, it has been revealed.Greater Manchester Police confirmed today (Monday 7 March) that the investigation has deepened after ISIS-connected material was found during a raid last week.
It is being considered that Mr Uddin was targeted because he had made efforts to discourage the youngsters from turning to radical Islam.
Detectives investigating the death raided three properties last week, and so far three people have been arrested.
But the discovery of material connected to the so-called Islamic State terror group prompted Greater Manchester Police to call in counter terrorism experts, who are now leading the inquiry. Detectives are now examining the material, which includes digital media thought to have been found on computers or smartphones.
Mr Uddin, 64, was attacked as he walked through a children’s park last month. He was taken to hospital but died later. Mr Uddin had been to evening prayers at the Bilal Jamia Masjid
