The really clever sleight-of-hand that Islamic supremacists and apologists, along with their Leftist allies, have pulled off in the West was to make people think that to call attention to an attack like this one, and to call for the defense and protection of the Hindu minority in Bangladesh, would be an act of “intolerance,” “bigotry,” and even “hatred.” We’re constantly told that these attacks are perpetrated by a tiny minority of extremists that twists and hijacks Islam’s true, peaceful teachings, and that the vast majority of peaceful Muslims abhor and reject such violence. Very well. Where is the vast majority of peaceful Muslims doing anything to rein in violent Muslims and stop such attacks? Nowhere. They’re doing nothing. So it is left to non-Muslims to point out that the only bigotry and intolerance in this picture is that of the Muslim attackers, not of those who note the attack.
“Hindu temple attacked in Gazipur,” from the Daily Star, February 27 (thanks to U.B.):
Unidentified miscreants vandalised idols in a Hindu temple in Bathania Chala under Kaliakoir upazila of the district on Tuesday night.
Dilip Kumar, a member of Sarbojanin Temple Committee, said miscreants desecrated all the idols in the temple, including the Durga, Laxmi, Saraswati, Kartik, Ganesh and Asur.
All the damaged idols were dumped in a field near the temple. The thugs also left notes threatening the Hindus to stop worshipping idols or face bomb attacks.
General secretary of the temple committee Surja Mohan Sarker said they left the temple about 7:30pm on Tuesday night. But in the following morning they found that all the idols have been vandalised.
A case has been filed with Kaliakoir Police Station in this regard.
On February 10, miscreants damaged two idols at the house of Nepal Chandra Barman in Gachgari area of the upazila.
Officer-in-Charge Muhammad Omar Faruk of Kaliakoir Police Station said the attack on the temple was a stray incident.
Oh, well, that makes it all right.
Actually, however, Muhammad Omar Faruk is rather transparently covering for his coreligionists. This is just the opposite of a stray incident. This is an incident that is part of a global effort to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers under the rule of Islamic law. There is nothing “stray” about it.
