Over 100 people attended a vigil in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, to remember Mushin Ahmed last Saturday.
The 81 year old died on Thursday of last week, 11 days after he was attacked while walking to a mosque for morning prayers. He was left with serious head injuries.
Police have not ruled out that the attack was racially-motivated. Two men have been charged in connection with the assault and a further two arrested and bailed.
The vigil, called by Unite Against Fascism (UAF), was attended by trade unionists, socialists, representative from faith groups and many local Yemenis.
