Police probe mosque figures' links to sectarian group
Police Scotland is to investigate alleged links between two prominent Muslim leaders and a banned sectarian group in Pakistan.
A BBC investigation has found that Sabir Ali, head of religious events at Glasgow Central Mosque, was president of Sipah-e-Sahaba (SSP).
This is a political party now proscribed by the Home Office.
Links to the group have also been made to Hafiz Abdul Hamid from the Polwarth Mosque in Edinburgh.
