Angry Muslims burn two churches in Pakistan

A crowd of about 1,500 Muslims attacked and burned two churches in eastern Pakistan on Saturday following reports that a man of the Christian community had desecrated Islam's holy book, the Quran, police said.

A school, student hostel and the home of a priest were also torched in the incident near the town of Sangla Hill, about 130 kilometers northeast of Lahore, said area police official Ali Asghar Dogar.

The attacks came a day after a local Muslim resident accused Yousaf Masih, a Christian, of burning a one-room Islamic school along with copies of the Quran.

Dogar said no one was injured in the attacks, which were being investigated. About two-dozen people had been arrested over the incident, he said.

Protesters also burned tyres on village roads and blocked traffic for several hours.
Shahbaz Bhatti, head of the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance - which promotes the rights of minorities in mainly Sunni Muslim Pakistan - denied the charges and condemned the attacks.

"No Christian burned copies of the Quran," he said. "No Christian even can think of doing it," he said. "We have maximum regard and respect for the Quran and Islam's Prophet Muhammad."

Local Muslim leaders used mosque public address systems to urge Muslims to attack the churches, Bhatti said.

Dogar said police were also investigating the burning last night of the Quran school.

Thanks, D.

Wow! Paksitan! Would have thought! I mean, Osama is there and all, courtesy of President Bush - you'd think he'd be keeping a lid on the place for his number one pal, George Bush.

Hey, did any of you guys know that Bush's dad serves on the board of the Caryle Group with Osama's UNCLE? bad Osama! bad! how dare you!

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

The Bush and Bin Laden families were(/are?) quite tight, contracts and money flowing freely, but Osama's not close to his family's hearts.

"Local Muslim leaders used mosque public address systems to urge Muslims to attack the churches, Bhatti said."

Then they made all the Christians wear cross arm bands and round them up and put them on trains.

At least that sounds like what comes next....
