I would like to know what any muslims on here feel about this incident?
Enraged, keen for revenge, indifferent etc?
Was it a muslim who reported the incident as being offensive?
Comparing to incidents in the past few weeks, where islamic "extremists" are burning the highly symbolic poppy on armistice day - yet not one of
that group were arrested for that offence itself, only for assaulting a police officer, which would be the same for anyone?!
Therefore what is with the double standards in this country?
Offend Islam - Get arrested
Islam offend the UK culture - no chance of arrest.
Are police specifically instructed to not allow any offensive actions against islam only?
As another poster mentioned - are the PTB trying to cause some sort of rift in society, because I read things like this and it infuriates me
immensely, and causes me to (irrationally as someone will no doubt say it is not all muslims) dislike muslims and islamic believers as a whole,
because they dont come out and condone incidents like armistice day, yet do come out and complain bitterly about the koran burning!?
It makes me feel that the country is being forced to accept we cannot offend islam, but also that we are forced to accept being offended by islam, and
the government and police dont expect this to cause resentment and anger amongst us "normal" everyday citizens of the UK.
If islam preaches tolerance - then f******g tolerate and accept the culture of the country you live in, it really is not that hard. Dont constantly
expect to impose your own culture upon it (it being UK, what experiences do our USA/Aussie/Canadian etc friends have in their societies?)
