Hundreds of people have attended an event in Pakistan held in honour

:00:00.:00:11.

of the killer of Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah.

:00:12.:00:15.

Crowds chanting sectarian and Islamist slogans gathered

:00:16.:00:18.

at the family home of Tanveer Ahmed in the city of Mirpur on Monday.

:00:19.:00:22.

Ahmed is serving a life sentence for the murder of Mr Shah,

:00:23.:00:26.

whom he claimed had insulted the Prophet Muhammad in videos

:00:27.:00:28.

But, as our Pakistan correspondent Secunder Kermani reports,

:00:29.:00:34.

he continues to inspire extremists in his home country.

:00:35.:00:42.

Outside the family home of Tanveer Ahmed in the city

:00:43.:00:45.

of Mirpur, a 400-odd-strong crowd shouting slogans praising him.

:00:46.:00:48.

But he's not here, he's in jail in Scotland.

:00:49.:00:51.

Last year he killed Glasgow shopkeeper Asad Shah,

:00:52.:00:57.

who is from the persecuted Ahmadiyya sect.

:00:58.:01:00.

He believed Asad Shah committed blasphemy by claiming in online

:01:01.:01:04.

For many here, though, that killing was justified.

:01:05.:01:09.

TRANSLATION: Before, nobody knew who he was,

:01:10.:01:16.

now after what he did, God has made him so famous

:01:17.:01:20.

that the whole of Pakistan and even people abroad have heard of him.

:01:21.:01:26.

This gathering has been organised by a hardline but popular Pakistani

:01:27.:01:30.

cleric who leads the anti-blasphemy movement in Pakistan.

:01:31.:01:36.

But he is not here either, he is under house arrest.

:01:37.:01:39.

We met him at another rally earlier this month, where he got

:01:40.:01:42.

They are chanting, prophet of God, I am here.

:01:43.:01:48.

It has become the rallying cry of the anti-blasphemy movement,

:01:49.:01:52.

but it is also the slogan Tanveer Ahmed shouted defiantly

:01:53.:01:57.

at a court in Scotland as he was sentenced.

:01:58.:02:03.

The cleric's social media pages heavily promote Tanveer Ahmed,

:02:04.:02:07.

and have even released audio messages sent by him

:02:08.:02:10.

Like this one, where he says the penalty for blasphemy is death.

:02:11.:02:22.

Rizvi says he has spoken to Tanveer Ahmed from jail

:02:23.:02:26.

TRANSLATION: We are proud of the fact he has killed,

:02:27.:02:32.

I'm proud of the fact that we are in contact.

:02:33.:02:36.

Lots of Muslims would say one of the central characteristics

:02:37.:02:40.

of the Prophet was to show forgiveness and he forgive

:02:41.:02:45.

Even if the Prophet forgave somebody, it was his personal

:02:46.:02:51.

right to forgive them, but his followers do not

:02:52.:02:55.

have the right to forgive someone who has insulted him.

:02:56.:02:59.

The Scottish Prison Service has put a stop to Ahmed's audio messages,

:03:00.:03:04.

but Rizvi says his support in Pakistan will continue to grow.

:03:05.:03:09.

In Asad Shah's mosque in Glasgow there is real concern

:03:10.:03:12.

Pakistan has got a problem and this problem is being

:03:13.:03:17.

The events which happened in Glasgow is an example of the same.

:03:18.:03:28.

Tanveer Ahmed's crime was carried out in Britain, but was inspired

:03:29.:03:31.

Now it seems it's his turn to inspire others.

:03:32.:03:44.

Police in Suffolk investigating the disappearance of Scots airman

:03:45.:03:50.

Corrie Mckeague have arrested a man on suspicion of attempting

:03:51.:03:53.

It comes as officers prepare to search a landfill site

:03:54.:03:58.

in their search for Mr McKeague, who was based at RAF Honington.

:03:59.:04:01.

Alex Dunlop reports from the landfill site

:04:02.:04:03.

Suffolk police are giving a few details except to say they have

:04:04.:04:07.

arrested a 26-year-old man this morning.

:04:08.:04:10.

They are interviewing him on suspicion of attempting

:04:11.:04:12.

to pervert the course of justice, relating, they say, to information

:04:13.:04:16.

Significantly perhaps, he's the first, the only person

:04:17.:04:23.

to be arrested since Corrie McKeague went missing from the market town

:04:24.:04:26.

The 23-year-old airman from Fife were stationed at an RAF base

:04:27.:04:32.

near Bury and was last picked up on CCTV in the town centre

:04:33.:04:35.

after a night out with friends on the 24th of September.

:04:36.:04:39.

Police say the arrested man is not the driver of the bin lorry

:04:40.:04:42.

which delivered refuse to this massive landfill

:04:43.:04:45.

It had collected a bin from the area where Mr McKeague was last seen.

:04:46.:04:58.

The theories he may have fallen into or been placed in one of these

:04:59.:05:02.

commercial bins in this car park behind some shops.

:05:03.:05:04.

Police accept there is a real chance that Corrie McKeague has died

:05:05.:05:07.

and that his body may be buried somewhere in this

:05:08.:05:09.

for officers to start their search, which will happen in

:05:10.:05:15.

It is a grim task and will take several weeks.

:05:16.:05:23.

MSPs have been hearing how a school support worker who wanted to find

:05:24.:05:27.

out about Asperger's Syndrome so they could help

:05:28.:05:28.

a child was told to watch an American comedy programme.

:05:29.:05:31.

The claim was made to a committee investigating whether children

:05:32.:05:34.

with additional support needs are getting the help they need.

:05:35.:05:38.

There's concern the quality of provision and staff training

:05:39.:05:41.

Here's our education correspondent, Jamie McIvor.

:05:42.:05:50.

Park Hill School in Glasgow helps youngsters who need

:05:51.:05:52.

This replica of a hotel bedroom is for courses which could lead

:05:53.:06:01.

All of the pupils have faced real challenges

:06:02.:06:06.

What would you like to do after school?

:06:07.:06:11.

I would like to work in the Hilton and from there become manager.

:06:12.:06:15.

The presumption nowadays is for youngsters with additional

:06:16.:06:19.

special needs is to remain in mainstream schools,

:06:20.:06:23.

but for some the better option is a specialist

:06:24.:06:25.

MSPs are examining the issue and heard from a parent of a child

:06:26.:06:31.

who had a difficult experience in a mainstream school.

:06:32.:06:34.

My son was in primary six and played with the primary twos,

:06:35.:06:39.

which led to the other primary sixes making fun of him.

:06:40.:06:42.

He is now in a class where there are mixed ages

:06:43.:06:45.

and abilities and gets on great and has a peer group.

:06:46.:06:49.

Almost a quarter of children need some additional support.

:06:50.:06:52.

The phrase covers everything from serious physical

:06:53.:06:55.

handicaps to coping with bullying or bereavement.

:06:56.:06:59.

It was even claimed one support worker was told to watch this

:07:00.:07:04.

TV comedy to find out about a form of autism.

:07:05.:07:08.

Just this once you can count me as people too.

:07:09.:07:14.

I was in a school and asked a member of staff working

:07:15.:07:17.

specifically with the children with Asperger's syndrome

:07:18.:07:21.

what training had she had in Asperger's syndrome and she said

:07:22.:07:24.

she was told to watch the Big Bang theory.

:07:25.:07:26.

That is the level of training we have got now in schools.

:07:27.:07:29.

And some teachers have worries about whether the right help

:07:30.:07:31.

And again, that's down to, obviously, budget cuts.

:07:32.:07:40.

Our school has seen educational psychologists for one or two

:07:41.:07:43.

hours a month if you're lucky, that's not good enough.

:07:44.:07:45.

Few would say it's wrong in principle principle to try keep

:07:46.:07:48.

Students at Park Hill are the exception, not the rule.

:07:49.:07:56.

But nationally, there are questions over how things sometimes work out.

:07:57.:08:05.

The Scottish Government's plans to abolish the Scottish Funding Council

:08:06.:08:07.

board have suffered a setback after MSPs voted

:08:08.:08:10.

It's yet another defeat for the SNP, who are a

:08:11.:08:15.

Ministers want to boost economic growth and are streamlining the

:08:16.:08:20.

four enterprise agencies, putting them under

:08:21.:08:22.

The Conservatives, who lead the debate, said it would put

:08:23.:08:28.

university autonomy under threat and smacked of centralisation.

:08:29.:08:33.

There's been a 12% fall in the termination rate of pregnancies

:08:34.:08:36.

Glasgow University researchers also found expectant mothers in Scotland

:08:37.:08:41.

are more likely to continue these pregnancies than those

:08:42.:08:45.

At 14, he already has plans for the future.

:08:46.:09:02.

In Scotland, over 50 children a year are born

:09:03.:09:16.

with Down's Syndrome and it is often a struggle for support.

:09:17.:09:20.

We're having a battle now having him starting to transition

:09:21.:09:23.

We are having difficulties trying to get a social worker for him

:09:24.:09:31.

because there are not many in the area.

:09:32.:09:34.

With better testing, more women can find out

:09:35.:09:36.

if they have a chance of a baby with Down's Syndrome.

:09:37.:09:40.

In Scotland, the proportion of women who decided to terminate a pregnancy

:09:41.:09:47.

following a diagnosis of Down's Syndrome has

:09:48.:09:50.

We welcome the report, but from our membership

:09:51.:09:59.

we are hearing that families are not always getting unbiased

:10:00.:10:03.

and up-to-date information, so we call on all health

:10:04.:10:08.

professionals to be properly trained so they are able to give families

:10:09.:10:11.

up-to-date and accurate information about the life chances of people

:10:12.:10:13.

Since Daniel was born in advance as a medical services have increased

:10:14.:10:28.

options for people born with Down's syndrome.

:10:29.:10:30.

I didn't think I'd be able to cope with it at all and actually he has

:10:31.:10:34.

made me a much better person for being his mum.

:10:35.:10:38.

Football, and Rangers scraped a 3-2 win at home against St Johnstone,

:10:39.:10:41.

with a last-minute goal winning the match for the Ibrox side.

:10:42.:10:43.

Elsewhere, Dundee lost 1-0 at home to Partick Thistle,

:10:44.:10:47.

while Hearts lost by the same scoreline to

:10:48.:10:48.

Celtic romped to a 4-0 victory in Inverness, with Scott Sinclair

:10:49.:10:55.

opening the scoring before Moussa Dembele took advantage

:10:56.:10:58.

of a goalkeeping error to double the lead.

:10:59.:11:01.

Stewart Armstrong scored with a free kick and Dembele

:11:02.:11:04.
