Shut Your Facebook: British Muslim Facing Serious Charges for Anti-Occupation Rant
SHUT YOUR FACEBOOK
ANTI-OCCUPATION RANT LEAVES ONE FACEBOOK USER FACING SERIOUS CHARGES
16th March 2012 - SchNEWS Issue 809
“Troops Out” you say? You're fokkin' nicked then. If you're Muslim, live in the UK and say it on Facebook that is. This was the fate of Azhar Ahmed, 19, who chose Facebook as his medium to express his disgust that the deaths of 6 British soldiers serving in the occupation of Afghanistan was treated as a much more solemn and grief stricken event than the regular killings of Afghan civilians. In language not much more colourful (well, maybe just a bit) than you'd find in the pages of SchNEWS.
“People gassin about the deaths of Soldiers! What about the innocent family's who have been brutally killed.. The women who have been raped..The children who have been sliced up..! Your enemy's were the Taliban not innocent harmful families. All soldiers should DIE & go to HELL! THE LOWLIFE FOKKIN SCUM! gotta problem go cry at your soldiers grave & wish him hell because that's where he is going..”
As a result of his internet diatribe (hardly the first angry anti-imperialist posting the internet has ever seen), Azhar has been arrested for a "racially aggravated public order offence".
As astute readers will no doubt be aware, “soldier” is not a race. There's no mention of race or religion in his post, but, if you're Muslim in Britain, you can pretty much forget any freedom of speech niceties that we bandy around when we compare ourselves to despotic foreign regimes that crush peoples' human rights.
Azhar will appear at Dewsbury Magistrates Court on 20 March 2011. Other Facebook commenters have decided to pitch in their two-penneth over his allegedly racist rant with actually racist comments such as ”Dirty smelly greasy bastard needs f*king torturing the dirty paki bastard!!” and “Cheeky smelly pakki c*nt wants tying to a tree n shooting …Smelly f*kker..Lock him up n throw the key away ..Grrrhhhh….SKUM…!!” Needless to say, there have been no arrests in connection to these posts.
