"Sir" Salman Rushdie: Day Two

The saga continues...

Pakistan's protesters chant slogans to condemn the British government for awarding a knighthood to Salman Rushdie in Karachi, Pakistan, Tuesday, June 19, 2007.

"HAND OVER RUSHDEI TO PAKISTAN FOR TRAIL IN SHARIAT" (Bad Protest English-to-Regular English translation: "Hand Over Rushdie to Pakistan for Trial in Sharia!")

That's The Religion of Peace for ya, folks. Death is an appropriate punishment for writing a dreadfully boring book.

If this keeps up, I think we might have yet another DAY OF RAGE on our hands, and if it's going to rise to Day of Rage levels, it's bound to happen this Friday. Keep your eyes peeled for some Grade-A entertainment, folks!

Update: Eagle-eyed reader AMDScooter spotted a familiar face in the crowds! How'd I miss that??

These next two are almost too good to be true. Which, of course, means there's the slightest chance they've been "enhanced."

I'm throwing this last guy in as a "free" bonus. He's not connected to Salman Rushdie in any way, but he's well worth your time.

Thousands of people marched in Indian-controlled Kashmir Tuesday protesting the killing of 17-year-old Bilal Ahmed Dar by government forces, who locals claim had no ties to militant groups. The teen was killed along with two rebels Monday in a gun battle between police and suspected Kashmiri rebels in the village of Chewdara. (AP Photo/Rafiq Maqbool)

They look a little groggy - they are capable of raging much harder. "Rage Boy" from Kashmir has them beat by a mile.
#2 Cheryl 19-Jun-2007
Is Rushdie the official Pakistani Satan or is he just a temp? Who will win the final bid?
#3 Right Truth 20-Jun-2007
Britain's Queen Elizabeth II bestows the title of Sir to author of "The Satanic Verses", Salman Rushdie and the Muslim world reacts with ... cartoon-like anger. "Pakistan's parliament passed a resolution to condemn the action as an affront to Muslim
#4 hajira 22-Jun-2007
the most tragic and really grave incident of this century... is attacks on a religion,directly or indirectly..the focus is just islaam..n the people who highlight and say about this fact are termed as fanatic..
the action starts from 9|11 attacks ,only blames with no evidences..it was definately a bad incident... but actions n just actions on islam..we can only protest and even if we try that..who doesnt want to sacrifice hislife for his religion and,what is the use of those eyes which cannot stop other devil's eye on his religion..that hand which cannot stop otheR attacking HAND....
to raise a voice for just is right on all religion..killing other person for self defence is not a crime in any relifion so how can defending one's religion is crime anywhere...
we are called as fanatist,terrOrorist...
we are attacked various times verbally or by different means.. we respect all religions...
still the topic is unrevealed to you...i m surprised..
the innumerable attacks... including the latest one.GREAT BRITIAN AWARDS SALNAN RUSHDI TILE OF SIR... AMAZING..FROM GREAT BRITAIN..
THE SAME PERSON WHICH HAS TO BE GIVEN PENALTY OR HANGED IS BEING AWARDED...yeah..forgiveness...only comes to muslims..our religion teaches love ANYONE for ALLAH AND HIS prophet,hatred for ALLAH AND HIS LAST BELOVED Prophet..
I HAVE NOT KNOWN AND HAVENT SEEN HIM BUT GOD IS EVIDENT I DONT EVEN WANT TO SEE HIM...I PRAY TO GOD I MAY NEVER SEE HIM.. AT MY PIOSITION ANY ONE WOULD SAY THIS..
WE MUSLIMS COULD HAVE ASKED FOR HIS PENALtY and killing for the devil's companion..but look at us we are just saying not to award him the title "sir'...can't we be granted as that ..y we are being treated like that..give me any example when a muslim Ruler has done this to any other reiligion AWRDING A PERSON WHO HAS ATTACKED OTHER RELIGION ???? still we are fanatist..
in the consequences..sir title would be seen as the most devilish title and people who have got this and will be given..if they would have love for their religion..which is obvious..would never accept it.. people respect other religions..
it is not the world matter... religion is not a personal matter now its for all....IF THIS IS WAY OF GETTING THE TITLE OF "SIR"USE BAD LANGUAGE FOR OHTER PROPHET AND GET A TITLE IS THE RULE????
we muslims are most respectful to other religions...but we dont have tolerance for wrongdoings. religion..
musilm's eyes brought in tears for years...
not an opology would work for it,a promise from all to all people never blame other religion,never use BAD WORDS FOR OTHER PROPHET,..and people who do this would be given penalTy,SEVERE PUNISHMENT just one law to practice,n peace,love for ALL....IT BRINGS TEARS OF BLOOD.....

WHAT SHOULD WE CALL THIS INCIDENT"REWARDING A DEVIL TITLE OF SIR" .THEN IT IS A TIME TO WAKEUP..N SEE HOW GREAT BRITAIN REWARD PEOPLE WHO ARE FANATIST AND TERRORIST..IS IT MY PERSONAL OPINION??? SEE,LOOK WITHOUT BEING BIASED..
I CANNOT EVEN SAY WHAT IF SOMEONES DOES TO UR RELIGION
N HE IS BEING WARDED LIKE THAT...??TO ME ITS EVEN VERY HURTING..BUT ONCE THE FINGER IS AT UR POSITION..U MIGHT HAVE WRUITTEN MORE THAT THAT... BUT MY IDEA IS NOT TO MAKE ANY ONE FURIOUS,MY BELIEVE IS THAT THE WORDS I HAVE WRITTEN MAYBE MY WAY OF CLOSER TO ALLAH'S PROPHET,HIS LOVE..AS IT IS WRITTEN THERE
WHEN HAZRAT ABRAHIM{A.s}WAS BROUGHT TO FIRE ,TO EXTINGUISH THE FIRE THERE WAS A BIRD WHO HAD A WATER IN HIS BEAK TO EXTINGUISH FIRE,HE SAID I MIGHT NOT ABLE TO EXTINGUISH THE FIRE,BUT WHEN ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT GOD WOULD ASK FOR MY WORK? WHERE WAS I? I CAN ANSWER I HAVE MY CONTRIBUTION TOO...
SEE THIS IS A SMALL DROP..BUT REALLY THE DROPS MAKE SEA..ONE DROP BY ALL OF US WOULD STOP SUCH EVILS FOREVER....

Haji,

I am a devout, if somewhat irreverent, Christian. Not a single word of what I write here at Snapped Shot is "anti-Religion."

That being said, you're welcome to find the rest of my reply over here...

Salaam,
Brian

Does converting to islam destroy brain cells or otherwise impair thinking? Almost every post (not all granted) I read from angry muslims reads like the one above

Persons like rushdi and any other who tries to dimolish religious norsm of any relegion, should not be given shelter in any country. These persons should be handed over to the contry whom they are culprits.
