Insult to Kriss
The outraged family of murdered Kriss Donald have blasted fascists who held an anniversary memorial at the spot where he was snatched.
A band of thugs defied cops by laying a wreath for the 15-year-old who was killed by a racist Asian gang in Glasgow in 2004.
But Kriss’s sickened family called it “an insult to his memory” and accused far-right groups the Scottish Defence League and the National Front of exploiting his horrific death.
A relative said: “To see our tragedy abused to promote hatred makes us very angry. It has upset us all.
“Kriss was murdered by a racist gang and the SDL are no different to his killers.
“Our family never have and never will give them permission to lay a tribute at the memorial.”
The SDL and National Front had planned to gather at Kriss’s plaque in Pollokshields yesterday — a day after the ninth anniversary of his killing.
But after police banned the ceremony, ten extremists in SDL hoodies instead sneaked into the neighbourhood — home to Scotland’s largest Asian community — to lay their vile tribute a day earlier.
Strathclyde Police said: “This is being investigated and will be dealt with accordingly.”
Schoolboy Kriss lived in the area with mum Angela, his brother and three sisters.
He was abducted, stabbed, then burned to death by Imran Shahid, Zeeshan Shahid and Mohammed Mushtaq — who were jailed for life in 2006.
Meanwhile, SDL thugs faced off with Unite Against Fascism supporters during ugly scenes outside an Islamophobia awareness conference in Edinburgh yesterday.
