EXCLUSIVE: Warning Text To Scots Muslims
Heart has seen text messages sent to Scottish members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community telling women not to go out in public in the wake of the Paris attacks.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim community has more than 100 branches across the UK with an estimated 30,000 members.
The texts were sent to 600 members in Scotland.
They were released over the weekend telling women "to avoid going out in public places and be vigilant".
It also calls on "able bodied men over 18" to provide security in mosques and asks for classes at Mosques to be suspended for two weeks.
Ahmed Owusu-Konadu is the External Affairs Secretary at the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Scotland. He spoke to our reporter Connor Gillies:
Grants ranging from £500 up to £10,000 are being allocated to 494 grassroots organisations across the country.
A HMICS report on how the service is managed and delivered by the SPA makes 23 recommendations for improvement.
RF said progress was crucial with just over a million people in Scotland living in poverty.
