Muslim students lynch Christian teacher!

There has always been conflicts in Nigeria between different groups based on ethnicity or religion. But the last couple of years there seems to be a surge in radical violence especially in the Muslim north. Sharia law was introduced in 1999. Make the connection.

Muslim pupils at a secondary school in northeastern Nigeria beat a teacher to death today after accusing her of desecrating the Koran.

Oluwatoyin Olusase, a Christian, was adjudicating an Islamic Religious Knowledge exam at the school in Gombe state when the incident occurred.

The students attacked her outside the school compound after the exam and killed her, witnesses said.

It was not clear exactly what Olusase had done that angered the students.

Police confirmed the killing and said their intervention had prevented the incident from turning into a riot.

"We have received information that a female teacher has been lynched by her students. We are investigating the report," Gombe state police commissioner Joseph Ibi said.

Meanwhile, at least five people were killed and several churches burned down in February 2006 in the neighbouring state of Bauchi by Muslims infuriated that a Christian teacher in a secondary school had tried to confiscate a Koran from a student who was reading it during class.

(Now if we had a story that said "Christian students in suburban Atlanta lynch Muslim teacher over religious remarks," that would really make the news! But it ain't gonna happen folks)

I still reckon we should nuke Mecca when they have their religious thingy......

Maybe then they would think twice..

My biggest problem though is that their leaders of the Muslim Community don't stand up enough.

Always hiding behind that word discrimination.
Biggest discrimination is against us.....well i think so..... soon we won't be able to shit cos it's coloured.....
