"it seems to have stemmed from an ongoing feud"

Five men have been convicted of murder after a man was stabbed to death after he attended a funeral.

Haji Choudhary Rab Nawaz attended the Jamiah Masjid and Institute, at the junction of Durbar Avenue and Queen Mary’s Road in Foleshill, Coventry, with his brother on October 2, 2022.

After the funeral, the brothers were followed to their car, which was parked nearby.

A group of men, two from Birmingham and three from Halesowen, armed with weapons, stabbed the brothers following an ongoing feud between families.

The injured brothers tried to drive off but then returned to the mosque to seek help.

Mr Nawaz sustained serious chest injuries and died a short time after arriving at hospital. His brother suffered a small stab wound and survived.

The attackers included Adam Razaaq, Faisal Mohammed, Hasnian Razaaq, Hasham Razaaq and Jenaid Mahmood.

They targeted the brothers after spotting them at the funeral.

West Midlands Police said the car was “smashed up” after the stabbings. Officers established there was “ongoing animosity” between two closely-linked families.

Although evidence found that Mohammad had stabbed the two men, all five were jointly involved in the violence, which led to Mr Nawaz’s death.

After the stabbings, the five men fled to different parts of the country.

But police identified and arrested them in the following days.

Officers checked CCTV footage and mobile phone records and used forensics to link the men to the murder.

The five men are:

  • Adam Razaaq, aged 21, of Halesowen.
  • Faisal Mohammed, aged 30, of Birmingham.
  • Hasnian Razaaq, aged 24, of Halesowen.
  • Hasham Razaaq, aged 23, of Halesowen.
  • Jenaid Mahmood, aged 19, of Birmingham.

The five men were convicted of murder. They were also convicted of attempted murder and possession of an offensive weapon. They will be sentenced at a later date.

Detective Inspector Nick Barnes, from West Midlands Police’s homicide unit, said:

“This was excessive violence which tragically led to the death of a much-loved father.”

“These five men acted together and it seems to have stemmed from an ongoing feud between two families.

“It is yet another example of the awful consequences of carrying knives in public places.

“I am grateful to the jury who spent several weeks paying close attention to the evidence and were clearly unconvinced by the web of lies from those defendants who decided to give evidence.

“Although nothing can sadly ever bring Mr Nawaz back, we hope these convictions will bring some sense of justice for those who knew him.”
