Two pig heads were found hanging at the entrance to a mosque in southern France, leaving a pool of blood on the ground, on Wednesday, in the latest incident in what Muslim leaders say is a rising tide of Islamophobia in the country.
The mayor of Montauban denounced what she described as intimidation of Muslims after the heads were discovered in the early morning attached to two pillars at the entrance of the Salam Mosque. Pigs are considered unclean by Muslims, who are prohibited from eating pork.
This type of discrimination happens in every sort of situation: in the work environment, at school, at universities, in restaurants and cities. So Islamophobia as a phenomenon continues.
The anti-Islamic movement in Europe cannot by any reason justify their behavior at all. No matter what extremist Islamic powers in Tehran or those Islamic extremists around Europe and elsewhere have done.
If Martin Luther King was still alive, he certainly would have a dream of the Bell of Freedom ringing in Mecca, Tehran, Damascus, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Nigeria and many other places around the world. In Nigeria terrorists burn churches and kill Christians in the name of religion.
Those hanging pig heads in front of a mosque are not Christian or indeed religious followers. They are just mentally sick people. No Muslim or Christian, Hindu or other civilized religions permit such behavior.
While hanging pig heads outside a Mosque is totally uncalled for, we must not lose perspective in regards to all the atrocities enacted by the Muslims in France.
France’s Muslim immigrants block the streets of France and downtown Paris for prayers as a political statement and one of their favorite pastimes is torching vehicles.
The majority of Muslims living in France refuse to follow the secular laws of France and only adhere to Sharia Law which is illegal in France, I suspect it will only get worse in the short and long term.
No need to put the blame on Muslims. Instead, we need to blame ourselves! So I appeal to those who aren’t familiar with French society to stop fabricating stories.
