Murdered in cold blood for eating beef
Why blame only ISIL when sickness abounds far and wide?
Mohammed Akhlaq, a 50-year-old Muslim man in India was brutally beaten to death for eating beef. He was dragged out of his home in the suburbs of the Indian capital by a hundred men, some reportedly high on alcohol. They smashed his head. His 22-year-old son was seriously attacked and lies in hospital in critical condition. Mohammed Akhlaq's home was ransacked. His wife and 70-year-old mother were also attacked but managed to save their lives. And this country is dubbed as the world's "largest democracy." This is no isolated occurrence. It's a pattern. The incident happened a couple of days after the Pakistan Embassy staff in New Delhi was disallowed by the Indian government from celebrating Eid-al-Adha outside the capital. As if the ruthless occupation of Kashmir since the last six decades isn't terrible enough, the Indian peninsula also stoops down to hardcore, fierce hindu radicalism.
Those who won't raise their voices against such savagery must also be just as comfortable with Al Qaeda at heart ... they have to be .. their criticism of AQ would be nothing beyond spectacular hypocrisy.
