Some people have zero common sense.
PETA activists in India recently took to the streets to call upon Muslims to celebrate Eid by making the responsible choice to go vegan.
You can probably guess how this story ends. The protests became violent and a policeman and PETA volunteer were both injured.
Keep in mind that Muslims in California recently complained about animals being stunned before they are slaughtered. By all means those animals need to feel as much pain as inhumanly possible. We wouldn’t want to kill them without them knowing they were being killed. That is not halal and neither is eating a salad.
As much as one respects some of the things that PETA does, they brought this upon themselves. As Muslim protester Navid Khan remarked, “We are offended by this move of PETA. It is an insensible move which should have been stopped by the district administration, before it took place. This is a direct attack on our religious beliefs.”
The Times of India reports:
BHOPAL: People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (Peta) first shot at religious activism — a call to Muslims to observe a vegetarian Eid this October — has misfired. It met with violent protests here on Monday.
One policeman was injured and a Peta volunteer roughed up by protestors, which included women, and later whisked away by Bhopal police.
Peta woman volunteer “Benazir Suraiya” attempted to make an appeal to Muslims to go vegetarian at the legendary Taj-ul-Masajid, said to be one of Asia’s largest mosques.
Camouflaged in a green hijab, to highlight the importance of vegetarianism, she walked towards the mosque gates with a couple of PETA volunteers holding a placard in Urdu and English which read: “Make Eid Happy for All. Try Vegan”.
With less than a dozen policemen deployed, locals took the opportunity and shouted slogans asking her to turn back. She was forced to take cover along with another PETA volunteer in the market outside the mosque.
Within minutes the crowd swelled and Suraiya was left to fend for herself as PETA supporters fled the scene. …
Seriously, how did they think this would turn out?
Halal slaughter is a seemingly cruel ritual to many who were not raised in the Islamic culture. I am personally not a big fan of these methods. But we have seen what happens whenever the Muslim diet is questioned. In the U.K., Subway no longer serves pork. Universities in Britain have also started secretly serving halal meat to EVERYONE to appease the savages. In California Muslims have pushed for public schools to go halal.
I don’t suggest going that far. We should not bend over backwards to appease these idiots. If you can’t eat a pork chop like everyone around you then go to a country that respects that. We don’t need your whining and complaining in the civilized world.
But a little common sense might be in order. PETA protesters aren’t the sharpest knives in the drawer. Starting a fight is OK if you are prepared to finish it. Fleeing like a bunch of spineless Fire Urchins is just what your opponents want. Islamists prey upon fear and thrive by dominating the non-believers.
PETA solved nothing here, except for maybe giving a bunch of towel heads a woody for a big ole fat slab of camel ribs.
This could have gone much worse.
Let this be a lesson to all flaming liberals who still believe that they can reason with these savages. I like cheeseburgers. If you come protest against my love of cheeseburgers I might get angry but I won’t be chasing you down and trying to beat you up because of your opinions.
People need to understand this. Like it, or not, you don’t simply attempt to reason with those who are beyond reason.
