That’s us. Ironic that its them who bite the dust in the process. Not sure if they are entitled to their virgins, perhaps some of our Mohammedan lurkers can enlighten us.
Prominent Muslim leaders in the U.S. and elsewhere have called for restrictions on the freedom of speech, including theÂ Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, theÂ Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, and theÂ Muslim BrotherhoodÂ – and in the U.S.,Â Sheikh Husham al-HusainyÂ of the Karbalaa Islamic Education Center in Dearborn, Michigan andÂ Imam Mohammad QatananiÂ of the Islamic Center of Passaic County, New Jersey. Given Sharia prohibitions on free speech, that is to be expected. So is the violence that Bangladesh is experiencing — it will come here, too.
An update onÂ this story. “Ten dead and hundreds injured as police battle hardline Islamist group demanding death penalty for those who insult Allah,” by Amanda Williams for theÂ Daily Mail, May 5: (JW)
Ten people were killed and hundreds more injured in Bangladesh today in fierce street fighting between police and Islamic hardliners demanding the death penalty for blasphemy.Rioters chanting ‘God is greatest!’ torched shops and vehicles, blocked roads and fought bloody battles with police in the capital of Dhaka and its suburbs.
Seven people were killed in the early morning clashes in the city centre and another three died in Kanchpur on the city’s outskirts, local media reported.
That was a few days ago. The riots have since intensified:
WARNING: Video is not very easy to make out, but disturbing nonetheless. Note that these murderers are adherents to the same Sharia that their coreligionists in the U.S. insist is benign and “Islamophobic” to resist.
“Bangladeshi Islamic mob beating people to death to enact sharia law,” fromÂ LiveLeak, May 6 (thanks to JW):
from yesterday, Sunday May 5- 200,000 Islamists marched in large rallies in Bangladesh to press the govt to enact hardline sharia law which critics have described as on par with the Taliban and their legal system. They also demand that the govt kill various bloggers and media figures for “insulting” Islam. Violence spread from Dhaka, the capital to other parts of the country including Chittagong, where this video was recorded and 5 people were murdered in large riots. I have no idea why these people were murdered by the mob, either they wore govt uniforms or they were Hindus, who have been targeted in large scale attacks recently by the majority muslim population. In total 20 people have so far been reported killed from yesterday with the figure likely to climb.
