India: Muslim-Hindu Clash Is Deadly

24 Jul

A small story, but part of an enormous story we need to keep our minds on.

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS — July 23, 2012

A clash between Muslims observing the holy month of Ramadan and Hindus who were offering alms to one of their gods left one man dead and 20 people injured in northern India. The police imposed a curfew on Bareilly, a town in Uttar Pradesh State where the violence occurred. Officials said Muslims offering morning prayers on the second day of Ramadan were upset by devotional singing by Hindus who were on their way to a temple for a regular ceremony offering water and milk to Lord Shiva. The two sides hurled stones at each other, and a 22-year-old Muslim man was shot to death.
