Johannesburg (AND) Sheikh Abubukar Hassan Malin, a muslim cleric in the Somali Islamic Courts has urged muslims to kill Pope Benedict XVI after the later made controversial comments about the Islamic faith.
Malin equated the latest controversial comments by the Roman Catholic Church Pope to Salman Rushdie's novel "The Satanic Verses". Rushdie was sentenced to death after the release of his book and has been living in hiding ever since.
Malin said the Pope had to be punished for insulting Prophet Mohammed (the Islamic faiths spiritual leader) and Allah.
"We urge you Muslims wherever you are to hunt down the Pope for his barbaric statements as you have pursued Salman Rushdie, the enemy of Allah who offended our religion," Malin was quoted in the local media as having said during his Friday prayers.
"Whoever offends our Prophet Mohammed should be killed on the spot by the nearest Muslim," added Malin whose Islamic Courts recently took over much of Somalia and introduced Sharia law.
The furore stems from the Popes comments at a lecture on Tuesday in which he denounced links between Islam and violence. The pope further quoted a 14th-century Byzantine emperor who said innovations introduced by the Prophet Mohammed were "evil and inhuman."
There was no immediate comment from Rome, where the Pointiff is based.
His mistake: He let the cat out of the bag.
(Though it was never really in the bag to begin with)
Animals living down to their stereotype.
Don't get your hopes up!
"Paging Tomás de Torquemada, paging Mr. de Torquemada. You have an urgent call on the red courtesy phone."
.Mohammed must be a insecure, weak and petty figure if he is offended so much.
Why the Muslims religion is soooo peaceful....and I can tell you I know that because MSM says so all the time....
Mohammed was a child molester!
Once again Islam shows it's true self to anyone willing to open their eyes and ears.
I for one have had it with islam and their s**t. It is time to deal with them once and for all. Islam and islamic 'culture' must be destroyed. We should act sooner rather than later. The choice is ours.
They get the definition of peace out of the same dictionary as Bill Clinton looked up "is" in. He alsofound "Sexual relations" in that book.
A religion of peace. Who would have believed it.
The world is polarizing, mark my words. It will be us against them.
Imagine if it ever happened? Holy crap would there be a war over that!
This religious leader has objected to the reading of a quote that implied his religion uses violence to spread itself, by asking that his religious followers kill the person who read the quote - in the name of his religion.
