Buddhists latest targets of muslim rage over Facebook photo

#4
Sure, and according to the BBC the government (with mainly Muslim members) has stepped in hard and fast:

A curfew has been imposed and security forces are patrolling the streets.

The man accused of posting the image is in protective custody. Police say he was tagged in the photo but did not post it himself.
Bangladeshi Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir visited the scene and described the violence as "premeditated and deliberate acts of communal violence against a minority".

District Commissioner of Cox's Bazar, Jaynul Bari, told the BBC Bengali service the government was already helping the victims.

"We have distributed food rations for them. The army will supply more food," he said.

"We are giving them building materials. The home minister has ordered that all the homes and the temples be restored to their former condition with the funds provided by the government."
In any case, it just seems that local criminals have used religion to go on a looting spree:
Buddhists in the area, in south-east Bangladesh, said their possessions were stolen before their homes were destroyed.

"Before they set fire to my home, they looted everything," said resident Sumoto Barua.
Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir (C) visits a burned temple in Cox's Bazar September 30 Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir visited the scene and condemned the violence

"They took our possessions, money, gold and even computers. Then they torched the house. I am now living under open sky."

Don't worry yourselves, the arrse apologists will be along shortly to tidy up the mess the muzzies have made and justify their behaviour by equating it to the past atrocities of other religions and argue that such violence is coterminous with the drawing of cartoons.

Oh....well the whole thing was a mere misunderstanding then. I am sure the friendly government will erase all bad memories and other untoward effects any of those infidel Buddhists may have suffered due to their hyper-sensitivity.

I really ****ing despair.

I mean, what's the point of it all?

You don't see riots over other works of fiction do you? (Rushdie excepted)

It's a full time job, this being 'outraged and offended' lark, isn't it?
Certain political parties in Northern Ireland provide full-time and part-time courses on how to be professionally "outraged and offended"!

It's less hazardous than learning to set the trigger of an IED.

And much more fun!

I'd love to hear what the Chinese whispers about the amazingly poor YouTube clip have developed into to provoke this.
And why has no one in hese countries started to look at their immams and asked, hang on, who are you to tell me what to do if the koran is all about interpretation.
I think a crash course in individuality and free thinking is in order for the muslim world, after all, it worked for the nazis after WWII (or is that to close to Godwins Law?) where the British and US held lessons for PoW's about how to think for themselves.

I think that covert group of Muslims have been receiving post-grad instruction in how to be offended and outraged, with a special module on maintaining a chip on the shoulder, and another on how to hate and despise the people who pay for their bread.

They're getting this training from Scousers, of course! :)

"Persecution of Muslims in Burma"

And Aung San Suu Kyi, never said a word.

Bhuddist are peaceful, fact of life, BUT if their religion is ever threatened they go Ballistic.
I live in a Buddist country and I meet folk who argue that Bhuddism is not 'Technically' a religion.
