Mormons Riot, Kill Woman & Baby Over "Book of Mormon: The Musical" Blasphemy

Yeah, I know, but if you can think of some other way to snark this without recycling the obvious joke then please feel free to start your own blog:

Rioting erupted as rumours spread that a young Ahmadi man, identified as Saqib, shared a blasphemous picture on Facebook, Pakistan Today reported.

It allegedly included the Kaaba — the cuboid building at the centre of the Grand Mosque in Mecca that Muslims face in prayer – and contained nudity.

A mob reportedly gathered outside Saqib’s house and started protesting.

When they moved to a doctor’s house where Ahmadis were thought to be hiding, someone inside reportedly shot at the mob and injured the man who had started the Facebook rumour.

The group then set five Ahmadi houses on fire, killing the woman and children and injuring several others.

Since these are Ahmadis being murdered in the name of the Religion of Peace, Ahmadis consider themselves Muslim, but some Sunni Muslims do not, then maybe the better headline analogy would be something like, "Mormon Woman and Baby Murdered by Presbyterians Riots for Blasphemous Facebook Post"?

In any event, you get the picture.
