Egypt: Islamist Feelings Hurt After Being Denied Use Of Private Toilet, Seeks To Cut Off Owner’s Hand, Brother’s Tongue

When Salafists are holding in a number two, the number one thing on their mind is zero tolerance …

AL ARABIYA – “The ‘Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice Authority’ group , in Egypt’s eastern city of Suez has attacked a man for not allowing them to use his private toilet and ordered to cut his brother tongue for ‘cursing’ Islam.

Ahmed Gharib, this week told the online newspaper, al-Mowjaz, that the problem started as he was in his shop, in the El-Arbeen area in Suez, when a ‘bearded man’ rushed inside to use the bathroom.

‘I told him that he needs to ask for permission to use the toilet,’ said Gharib, ‘but he just responded with ‘we do not ask for permission,’’ he added.

A few minutes later, a group of 30 ‘bearded’ men reportedly came to Gharib’s shop and said they wanted to ‘discipline him for insulting a religious figure,’ reported the newspaper.

‘They tied me down and assaulted me,’ said Gharib. ‘They tried to cut off my hand for reaching for one of them,’ he added.

They were unable to cut off his hand, however, as passersby intervened to stop the fight. But Gharib sustained deep cuts.

Gharib’s brother, who had reached the shop later, angered with what had happened to his brother insulted the men so the ‘Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice’ group ordered the cutting of the young man’s tongue as they claimed that he cursed Islam.

‘They tried to catch him to carry out the order but he managed to escape with the help of neighbors,’ said Gharib.

The father of the two men had to report the incident to police after the group refused to leave and remained waiting for the brother outside his home’s doorstep.

A political activist, Fawazi Abdul al-Fatah, also confirmed the incident and said that the group remained in search of the young man and members of the neighborhood had to guard the man’s house.” Read more.

    Religious police, we have our own self-appointed version of such here–they’re such happy and joyous folks with their hateful glares, browbeating, harrassment and such.
