Don't Even Think About Drawing Muhammad

New Muslim intimidation tactic: preemptive violence.

There was panic in Tudun Wada Local Government area of Kano State yesterday as youths unleashed terror on Christians living in the area. The action was as a result of speculations that a Christian teacher in the area drew a cartoon of Prophet Muhammad and displayed it in his sleeping room in the area.

The protesting youths caused serious pandemonium. Ten shops belonging to Igbo traders in the area were set on fire.
