Muslim Cleric Gunned Down For Preaching Intolerance

No, wait... He was gunned down for preaching tolerance...

The Express Tribune via Gateway Pundit:

A cleric was gunned down inside a mosque in Rashakai, Risalpur, after he stopped a person from pasting posters igniting sectarian hatred.

Maulana Sirajul Haq Mir was offering prayers on Friday when the accused stepped out from the second row and opened fire, killing him on the spot.

Outspoken moderate Muslims should be a protected species. There aren't many of them left.

And speaking of tolerant Muslims, tens of thousands of Muslims in Bangladesh took to the streets to demand harsher punishments for bloggers who insult Islam.

As many as 94 people have been killed during protests against free speech bloggers. The first death was that of Ahmed Rajib Haider, a blogger who demanded justice for war crimes committed during the country's war of independence in 1971. The accused convicted war criminal is a Muslim and a leader of the Islamist group Jamaat-e-Islami.
