Hindu Temple Set on Fire in Pakistan over Blasphemy

Syed Raza Hassan, Yahoo! News, March 16, 2014

Hundreds of angry Pakistanis attacked a Hindu temple and set it on fire in southern Pakistan overnight following a rumor that a member of the Hindu community had desecrated the Koran, police and community leaders said on Sunday.

The incident took place just before midnight on Saturday after locals in Larkana district alleged that Sangeet Kumar, 42, had torn out pages of Islam’s holy book and tossed them down on the street from the roof of his home.


Hundreds of students from local Islamic seminaries attacked the temple holding batons, one witness, Javed Shah, said. Police arrived quickly to protect Kumar from the angry crowd.

“They acted smartly and took him out after making him put on a police uniform to save him from the wrath of the crowd,” said Shah.

“It took nearly 20 minutes to break down the doors (of the temple) before they entered the compound and set it on fire. They also set fire to the temple before ransacking it.”

Sindh province, where the attack took place, is home to most of Pakistan’s small Hindu community which numbers about two million among a population of about 180 million.


“The situation is not satisfactory,” Deputy Inspector General of Larkana, Khadim Rind, told Reuters. “Sanjeet Kumar has been accused of desecrating the holy book by the locals. The accused is in our custody.”

Tensions were high in the region following the incident, with Muslim protestors taking to the streets in several towns and setting fire to shops belonging to Hindus in the city of Usta Mohammad.

    All that it takes for whites to be killed, gang rapes or attacked is someone insinuating that Islam was mocked or attacked in any way. Never forget that. It is quite probable there was no Koran desecrated, but that is a convenient excuse and justification for Muslim savagery. Burning down unbeliever’s temples, or churches is par for the course for these enemies of civilized people.

    • Martel

      There have been many such cases even recently where it turned out to be nothing but a rumour. Didn’t help the slaughtered infidels though.

    • I’m delighted all over that a Hindu mob destroyed the Babri mosque in Ayodhya in 1992.

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        Islam is a religion for vile, disgusting low-IQ subhumans. The same goes for Hinduism. It’s win-win for us as long as the savages are busy killing each other off in their own countries.

        • Zaporizhian Sich

          I have to agree with Einsatzgrenadier, the more they kill each other in their own lands the better, I only wish there is a way we can speed the killing along amongst them. As it is, decades of very violent warfare lies ahead for us, which will involve guerilla warfare mixed with the use of weaponry up to and including nuclear weapons.

          • My problem with that is that Pakistan and India both have nuclear weapons and these things can quickly get out of hand. Radioactive strontium-90 in the fallout from above-ground nuclear explosions ends up being incorporated by dairy cattle into milk, which then enters the human food chain and is incorporated into the growing bones of children. I wouldn’t be very happy if my daughter ended up with leukemia because of these idiot maniacs.

    • JohnEngelman

      The same secular liberals who hate the Bible Belt and the religious right make excuses for Muslims.

      • Zaporizhian Sich

        Indeed they do, and they do not realize to the Muslims they are “kaffir kuffars,” read filthy heathens in Arabic as Christians are!

        • Andy

          Indeed, I suspect liberal atheists are even less popular than conservative Christians among Muslims.

    • Ron Cheaters

      I’m reminded of the situation where US Marines were raked over the coals for burning a pile of Korans they discovered in some school a couple years ago. But if the truth be known, I believe the US troops discovered they were writing plots in arabic code in the margins of those books.

  • james AZ

    Last year that City of Reykjavik approved for built new mosque and will start to built this year. Icelandic not realize that muslims are real humanroid locusts. GOOD LUCK to ICELAND.

    Dieversity is our greatest strength. Please repeat that until you get it right.

  • Tarczan

    As big a threat as blacks and Mexicans are, in terms of white displacement, they pale in comparison to the Muslim threat. The blacks and Mexicans basically just want to leach off of the welfare state, the Muslims want to convert you or kill you.

    • So CAL Snowman

      They are all uniquely horrible and equally destructive to the White race. It matters not if they are asian, arab muslims, pakis, blacks, or mexicans, they will ALL eventually result in the destruction of White civilization and the White race.

      • RisingReich

        The sooner we look at them in this light, the better off we’ll be.
        However, I don’t expect to see that until it’s darn near too late.

        Many weaker Whites still lying to themselves will be wiped out with out a single retaliatory action being taken for self-defense by these weak types.

        I pity them, but also see their removal from the equation as necessary. Sad, yes, but necessary never the less.

  • Whites create,
    Asians imitate,
    Hispanics populate,
    Muslims detonate,
    Blacks desecrate.

    It’s not much of a news story when muzzies chimpout over some slight to their sand pedophile religious icon. Meanwhile, the USA keeps importing muzzies and Hindus. Can anyone beside me see what’s coming down the road with that?

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      There has never been a successful multicultural society. Such a thing violates the laws of human nature. We were never meant to get along. Humans have been programmed by evolution to associate with those most genetically similar to themselves.

      The US government has put the country on the road to Sarajevo.

      • IstvanIN

        Multiculturalism can work, at the heel of a boot.

  • dd121

    It just escapes me as to why these religious fables inspire people to these acts.

    • It’s worse, as the accusation is probably a complete fabrication. Muslims in Nigeria have been refusing to get polio shots for their kids because some of those lunatics there spread the word that it is a Western plot to make them sterile. Of course there’s no truth to the rumor, but now their kids are being crippled by polio.

      • IstvanIN

        Don’t they realize that polio prevents spontaneous dancing???

      • dd121

        And this is a problem because…..?

        • Because – as usual – taxpayers in the developed West will be expected to pony-up our hard-earned money to fix the problem.

      • Ron Cheaters

        Shhh. Don’t give away the reverse-reverse-psychology.

  • Max

    Evidently they need more diversity courses in their schools. Maybe more Mexicans and Chinese anchor-babies in the mix would help them settle down.

  • IKE

    I’m going out and urinate on a koran because it’s the devil’s book

    • I read one in federal prison in 2002 and made certain to get crumbs of the pork rinds I was eating inside it.

  • NoMosqueHere

    Stephen Hawking recently stated that humans will have to start colonizing other planets, including the moon and Mars, within around 50 years because life on earth will become intolerable. Forget Idaho, we may need colonize a white planet — no muslims or hindus please.

  • Kenner

    I had no idea there were any Hindus still living in Pakistan. Buried, perhaps, but living? Pakis kill Christians, Sufis, whoever they’re in the mood to kill when they get out of bed in the morning.

  • bubo

    Muslims have been fighting themselves and everyone else for 1400 years straight. It’s unfortunate they’re still around.

    In time they will be thrown out of Europe and America and will hopefully destroy themselves through their eternal infighting so that the world can have peace.

    • The Iran-Iraq war wasn’t a very bad deal, now was it?

      • JohnEngelman

        During the Iran-Iraq War the United States had a clandestine policy of supporting the side that was losing in order to prolong the conflict.

        After 9/11 we could have resumed our clandestine alliance with Saddam Hussein. Al Qaeda was more of a threat to him than to us, and he knew how to keep it under control.

        Lord Palmerston said, “We have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual enemies. Our interests are eternal and perpetual, and those interests it is our duty to follow.”

        • NoMosqueHere

          I guess Lord Palmerston didn’t figure on George W. Bush, who turned Iraq over to Iran on a silver platter. Now we will have to deal with a much stronger, nuclear Iran, unless it somehow self destructs or is outright destroyed.

          • Iran has a big problem with economic stagnation. The sanctions have really hurt, but even before then their economy wasn’t creating enough jobs for young men. Their government has to know that unemployment was a big part of the unrest that got the Shah overthrown in 1979. I suspect that to a large extent President Mahmoud Imanutjob’s noise about Israel is intended to be a distraction for an otherwise fed-up public. I also think he’s a sock-puppet for the clergy who really run Iran. Fifteen year-olds are allowed to vote in Iran’s elections. That say’s right away that the candidates and the outcomes are not important!

            They actually have gasoline shortages there, which seems crazy in an oil-producing country, but they don’t have the refinery capacity.

          • JohnEngelman


            That is the most insightful analysis of contemporary Iran I have read.

          • JohnEngelman

            GW seems to have thought that the Iraqis would greet American invasion troops as liberators and quickly begin setting up a pro American, pro capitalist democracy. Then he thought Iraqi oil would break the power of OPEC, and lower the price of gasoline.

            That is what he got from living in a bubble and surrounding himself with people who told him how wonderful he was and how well he was doing.

          • What they did instead was start an insurgent movement and a Shi’ite-Sunni civil war. I think Iraq should have been partitioned along ethnic lines. That would leave us with three countries: one for the Kurds, one for the Sunnis and on for the Shi’ites. There are a few major obstacles to that, though. Turkey is an ally and is dead-set against any sort of independent Kurdistan. The people running the Big Electric Train Set here in the developed West are also committed to the notion of big, multicultural, multiethnic, multiracial countries instead of peaceful, freer homogeneous ministates.

          • JohnEngelman

            I am not very concerned with what Turkey wants.

            I believe that for at least another generation the Muslims will be in a lethal mood. I would rather they fight each other than Israel and the United States.

            The Muslims may be due for their equivalent of the Thirty Years War. That lasted in Europe from 1618 to 1648. It was fought between Roman Catholic and Protestant countries. It drained Christians of the willingness to kill for their various faiths.

          • I doubt anyone there will fight Israel anytime soon. It would take Egypt, Syria and Jordan all at once to make a reasonable attempt, and that never worked before. Egypt and Israel have no territorial quarrels anymore. The Jordanians might want the West Bank back, but after Black September they wouldn’t want any Palestinians. Syria is busily self-destructing. Nothing is going to happen.

            The next one in that area may be Saudi Arabia versus Iran. The Saudis have been arming up as fast as possible.

          • JohnEngelman

            Another thing to consider about another Arab Israeli war is that in the wars that happened in 1967 and 1973 the Soviet Union helped the Arabs. The USSR is not around any more.

            I have read that the Saudis would quietly assist an Israeli air strike on Iranian nuclear facilities. The Saudis know that they have more important things to do than assist in the destruction of Israel.

          • The Saudis have Chinese-made surface-to-surface missiles that can reach Iran’s nuclear facilities, but not with the necessary precision. I wish congress has approved work on Project Thor. That would have been a real rectal-slammer for anyone who got uppity.

            I suspect that in the event of a Saudi-Iranian war, Saudi equipment would prevail for a while, but Iranian numbers

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            Such as destroying every western nation with the Jihadist they are funding, directing and protecting. Frankly, the world would be a better place if they get bombed back to the camel jockey era.

          • The clergy there merely needs to be convinced that they will not conquer or convert the world. They can’t convert me or Sayaka. I loathe Islam much more than Mr. Spartacus ever did, so what’s the point?

            I’d like to write a long piece here about how we should get along, but I don’t want to get along with Muslims. I want my childhood friends, Brian and Ed Myers to forgive me. I want my gun rights back. I want to have another daughter, “Penelope” and a son “Owen” with my wife, but I do not want to get along with Muslims.

          • Zaporizhian Sich

            I don’t want to get along, I want them eliminated as a threat, one way or another. I will die bringing company along to my maker before they convert me. If it takes re-entry vehicles raining down on Mecca and Medina, than so be it. If it takes them being expelled back to their desert hell holes, than so be it. The photo below is of unarmed re-entry vehicles raining down on the Marshall Islands. If the Saudis see this, it will only mean a whole lot of them are fixing to meet Mohammed.

        • Michael Whalen

          So, we actually were doing something right.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    That’s called a selective immigration policy. They’re obviously not representative of the general population as a whole. You could cherry-pick black Africans and end up with the same result.

  • Zaporizhian Sich

    Precisely, and this is the future for every white nation if things keep going the way they are.
