I welcome the news that an arrest has been made in connection with the murder of Mr Saleem, a much-loved member of our community.
Although nothing can bring him back, the fact that a significant step has been taken towards getting justice for Mr Saleem will be a comfort to his family and the community in Small Heath.
It is shocking that Mr Saleem's brutal murder may have occurred as an act of terrorism - and it is vital that the community continues to support the police as they progress their investigations.
