So what’s new? More ‘Wrong Kind of Muslim’ bloodletting from the Religion of Uncontrollable Rage…
Gunmen [Those 'Gunmen' again - Ed] attacked a bus carrying Shiite Muslims in Pakistan’s insurgency-torn southwest on Tuesday, killing 13 people in the second major sectarian attack to hit the area in two weeks, police said.
Pakistan has faced mounting criticism from its minority Pakistani Shiite community and human rights groups for failing to prevent thousands of sectarian murders, which further destabilise the fragile US ally in the war on Al-Qaeda.
Tuesday’s drive-by shooting happened on the outskirts of Quetta, the capital of oil and gas-rich Baluchistan, which borders Iran and Afghanistan. Read the rest of this entry »
Happy Interfaith Easter from… well, you know who from:
JAKARTA – Indonesia said Thursday that the nation was on its highest level of alert ahead of Easter after police arrested suspects over a suspected Easter Book Bombing Campaign by Muslims.
Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Affairs Djoko Suyanto said the Indonesian president “has instructed military, police, and people who care about combating terrorism to ensure security ahead of Easter”.
“Starting tonight, tomorrow morning and on easter day, the military and the police will be on the highest alert at all designated places,” Suyanto said.
National police spokesman Anton Bachrul Alam said that anti-terror police have arrested a total of 19 people, including two in Aceh province, north Sumatra. Read the rest of this entry »
Another ‘Wrong Kind of Muslim’ attack against the Ahmadiyya sect – this time in in Moderate, Progressive™ Indonesia:
The military denied on Tuesday that it had ordered the Siliwangi command in West Java to encourage mainstream Muslims to occupy Ahmadiyah mosques and preach “the true path” of Islam.
The denial follows statements by one of the Army’s top generals, Maj. Gen. Moeldoko, who had called on Muslims to refrain from physical violence and acts of vandalism, and instead conduct “an attack of prayer rugs” in mosques belonging to the beleaguered minority Islamic sect.
In what human rights watchdogs have called a clear attempt to forcibly convert Ahmadis, Moeldoko, the head of the Siliwangi Military Command, said earlier this month that it was better to avoid violence and instead get the Ahmadis to open up their mosques to mainstream Muslims [ahem - Ed. ].
“I ask all of you [Muslims] to sit inside their mosques, which are exclusive for Ahmadis,” he said. “Let us fill their mosques with Islamic activities and the correct teachings of Islam.” Read the rest of this entry »

It’s F-r-r-r-r-iday.. so it must be Friday Prayers in Pakistan – the gift that keeps on giving. Intrafaith outreach from the Religion of Peace™:
Unknown assailants [ahem. - Ed.] opened fire on a worship place used by the Ahmadi religious minority in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore, DawnNews reported. The gunmen escaped after exchanging fire with security guards. No casualties were reported in the incident.
Police said the Ahmadi worship place was attacked by four to five gunmen and that the firing lasted for a few minutes.
The attackers were using small weapons, police said, adding that empty bullet casings were recovered from the site.
Ahmadis in Pakistan have been targeted by militants in the past. In May, at least 93 people were killed when militants attacked two Ahmedi worship places in Lahore, capital of Punjab province.
The Ahmadi community has also encountered problems in other countries including Egypt, which earlier this year detained nine members of the sect.
The Ahmadi sect is strongly critical of violence in the name of Islam. Religious strife between majority Sunni Muslims and minority Shias has killed more than 4,000 people in the past decade.
Founded by Ghulam Ahmad, who was born in 1838, the Ahmadi sect believes that Ahmad himself was a prophet and that Jesus died aged 120 in Srinagar, summer capital of Indian-ruled Kashmir.
Pakistan declared Ahmadis non-Muslims in 1974 and 10 years later they were barred from calling themselves Muslims.
The biggest killers of Muslims (other Muslims) strike again in charming Pakistan – luckily no-one died this time, but the story underlines the truism that if ‘pious’ Muslims can’t find any kuffar to harrass and violate, other members of the Ummah will always do.
