A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Overreaction

Dropped Koran Leads to Mob Violence in New Delhi

Nod: LGF

NEW DELHI: Two police posts were set on fire by thousands of agitated residents and students around Jamia Milia Islamia University on Saturday evening. The angry mob first set Jamia police post on fire and later targetted Sahinbagh police post in Sarita Vihar. About 40 people, including policemen, were injured in the violence.

Around two dozen police officers were injured in which four were reported to be critical. The incident happened after local residents in the area resisted police’s efforts to remove a patri market. In course of the encroachment removal drive, the Koran was reportedly dropped by a policeman, leading to tension.

Rioting. Wanton destruction. Four critical injuries.

Because a book, one of millions like it, incidentally hit the ground.

Hmmm…. “idolatry – excessive or blind adoration, reverence, devotion, etc. (to something other than God).

Qur’an 9:28: O believers, the idolaters are indeed unclean; so let them not come near the Holy Mosque after this year of theirs…

Maybe they ought to read their scriptures a little closer.
