Police are investigating whether a murdered Asian radio agony aunt could have been bludgeoned to death by a listener angered by her on-air involvement in family feuds.
The Asian community in Glasgow, where she lived, fear Mrs Jamil was murdered over her role in disputes, Mohammad Sawar, a high-profile Muslim MP said yesterday.
Mr Sawar added: ‘I have spoken to people in the village where Nasim’s family come from and my own gut feeling is grievances between families she dealt with could have led to this.
‘Problems between husband and wife can have serious implications and I have been involved in some very intense situations involving families in the community.
The agony aunt’s body was found with severe head and neck injuries in her kitchen just before 8pm on Wednesday.
It has also emerged that a former colleague of the widowed mother of two left the Glasgow-based radio station after receiving anonymous threats.
The 42-year-old, who did not want to be named, left the network, which serves the Asian community, in 2005 and said he and Mrs Jamil had concerns about some of the hostile reactions of some listeners.
He said: ‘It was because I challenged people about their views of women in Asian culture.
‘There are some in the community who are very aggressive and threatening if programmes do not fit their religious views.’
