You have to hand it to the Global Islamophobic Zionist-Crusader Conspiracy: they certainly don’t lack attention to detail, even scheming about the floor tiles in an Islamabad bank! The complaint registered two years ago is illustrative once again of the conspiracy paranoia that is rampant in Pakistan.
ISLAMABAD: A terrorist outfit targeted a bank in Islamabad on June 13 because its floor tiles and their design were strikingly analogous to the sacred name, Allah, and the bank did not change them despite complaints to its management.
A bank guard was killed and four others were injured in last Monday”s suicide attack on an Islamabad branch of a bank. The bank administration was cautioned by a section of the outfit that had even lodged a written complaint with Islamabad’s Industrial Area Police Station two years back following the direct warning to bank officials, it is reliably learnt.
Bank officials confirmed to The News on condition of anonymity that the administration received complaints about the design of the floor tiles, and that some individuals had also met the management official in this regard but neither the area police nor the bank administration took any action on the objections raised by the grdoup.

The bank’s president, when contacted for his comment, said: “It cannot even be imagined to disgrace the holy name of Allah Almighty.” He said the allegation was baseless and concocted. “We are Muslims and can never think of the disrespect to the name of Creator”, he added.
Head of the bank administration said that the plaza was four-storey building and the owner of the building constructed the structure but the design of the tiles was not objectionable. He said anyone could visit the building and the bank anytime.
Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) Islamabad Binyameen when contacted by this correspondent for comments confirmed the lodging of the complaint with the Industrial Area police and said that although the complaint was filed two years back, the police were investigating that aspect. He said that the investigators have got some concrete evidence leading to the terrorist outfit involved in the suicide attack.
Priorities: someone committed suicide in order to commit murder over floor tiles.
Quoting evidence, Binyameen said that the attacker was not wearing suicide jacket but was carrying explosive material packed in a bag. He said that police were working on the aspect whether the suicide attacker blew the explosive material himself or some one other had exploded it by remote control.
The officials investigating the case disclosed that in June 2009 an application, a copy of which is available with The News, was lodged with the Industrial Area police by the district president (name withheld) of a youth organisation (name withheld), resident of Golra, Islamabad, saying he had asked the bank administration to change the sacrilege design of tiles but they didn’t bother to listen to him. He requested the police to register the FIR against the bank administration.
FIR = “First Information Report”: the first step in lodging a criminal complaint in Pakistan.
Sources said that the police also didn’t take any action on the complaint despite the lapse of two years. The area police officials said that the complainant stated in the complaint addressed to the station house officer (SHO) Industrial Area Police Station, “I . . . son of … am the president of . . ., district Islamabad. It has come to my knowledge that the design of the tiles used for the floors of the bank have resemblance with the holy name of Allah. This is a matter of my creed and conviction. I myself visited the bank, observed the design of the tiles thoroughly and took their photographs, which are attached with the application. The bank administration, despite repeated complaints, didn’t listen to me.”
It’s all about the fitna:
“Sir, the holy name of Allah (we seek refuge in God) is being deliberately humiliated to create chaos in the country in pursuit of the agenda of anti-Muslims. I request you to register the FIR against the responsible officials of the bank for disgracing the holy name of Allah and arrest them.”
However, officers engaged in the investigation of the the bank suicide bombing case, believed the banned militant group Tehrik-e-Islami was involved in the attack. The investigators say they have got concrete evidence by using communication technology regarding the involvement of Tehrik-e-Islami in the suicide attack.
