But it is not, the BBC assures us, about religious bigotry. Just one of those random things, doncha know.
Islamic Tolerance Alert: “Nigeria Muslims’ ‘Easter attacks,'” from the BBC, April 14 (thanks to all who sent this in):
Police in Nigeria say they have made 120 arrests following clashes when Muslim youths allegedly attacked a Christian procession on Easter Monday.
Sectarian violence erupted in the towns of Gwada and Minna in the state of Niger when Christians were attacked and churches set on fire….
Nigeria’s 140 million population is split almost equally between Muslims and Christians, with the two communities generally living peacefully side by side.
But underlying tensions occasionally spill over into deadly bouts of violence.
Correspondents say the real cause for confrontation is usually competition for resources between different groups, rather than simply religious bigotry.
Ah. Of course. Muslims don’t ever indulge in religious bigotry, now, do they?
