Wednesday, April 02, 2014 - Hyderabad—A number of residents of various localities of Tando Allahyar city and activists of religious parties took to the streets against alleged desecration of the Holy Quran and attacked the home-cum-worship place of a man belonging to the Ahmedi community for his involvement in the alleged sacrilege.

The charged crowd rushed to Tahir Ahmed’s place and went on the rampage in the worship place on the ground floor. He took refuge on the upper floor, where his family lived, and the crowd did not pursue him there.

A heavy contingent of police and Rangers arrived at the spot and detained Mr Ahmed while protesters threw stones at the suspect and injured him.

According to sources, 12-year-old Salman was coming from a seminary in Mansoor Colony, Tando Allahyar city, when he was intercepted by two men riding a motorbike and snatched the Quran from him and beat him up.

Salman crying went back home and told his family and others that Mr Ahmed and an unknown man riding a motorbike had roughed him up and snatched the Quran and desecrated it.

Then a big charged crowd gathered and chanted slogans against the suspect and reached his home in Mansoor Colony. Salman lives in the neighbourhood of the suspect. The crowd went on the rampage on the ground floor of the house, said to be a small worship place.

A heavy contingent of police and Rangers arrived there and arrested Tahir Ahmed and took him to the A-Section police station of Tando Allahyar, where the crowd threw stones at the suspect and demanded registration of a case against the suspect.

An FIR (68/2014) was registered on a complaint of Qari Mohammad Ayub Siddique, Salman’s paternal uncle, under Sections 295-b, 337-A-1 and F-1 against the two suspects at the A-Section police station.

The protesters burnt tyres and resorted to firing in the air, forcing traders to shut their businesses. Tando Allahyar was tense till late in the night.

These people are loony tunes. Their outrage and violence idles are acutely sensitive and set on high.

This ideology and it's devout adherents are a bane to sanity, safety, and civility. Can we find a way to transport these people outside of our solar system?

Now, that is what is so frightening about the Islamic ideology. It devalues human life. All followers of @**@h are not only slaves to the ideology but hold or are subjected to a dehumanized status with the ideology.

In western society, the parents or guardians would be filing charges against the assailants and filing a civil suit for the young twelve-year-old boy’s medical costs.

The desecration of out Holy Bible would be an afterthought brought up only during the filing and trying process. The boy’s welfare and his and his family’s concerns for witnessing "justice being performed" would be Western society’s first concerns.

And, we would not riot or fire off weapons as a way of expressing our outrage.

The male population of the followers of this ideology practices no restraint, whereas the female population practices restraint—for both genders—to its fullest throughout their entire life.

Oops!

"Out" is "our, meaning "our Holy Bible." I got a little carried away there! Sorry!

They are insane! The only mentality they have is to physically hurt another like this is the only way to dealing with disagreements!! Just plain inhumane!
