This mosque demolition strangely stirred extremely feeble protests–if you can call them that.
Chinese authorities in the restive far western region of Xinjiang have demolished a mosque for refusing to put up signs in support of this August’s Beijing Olympics, an exiled group said on Monday.
China has characteristically cared a whit for the dreaded PR impact. Like it did in the case of Tibet. This incident has re-exposed worldwide hypocrisy. Check the worldwide reactions:
- The US: Mum
- Europe: Mum
- Indian Muslim leadership: Mum
- The Secularia: Shh! You don’t dare criticize the neo-Fatherland.
But the entire Muslim ummah has delivered the most merciless cut. My news-scouting did not show even an acknowledgement that the demolition was a heinous act.
Did you say Babri Masjid?
