These were the same images that sparked a rampaging Muslim mob that torched a dozen Buddhist temples.
Via Daily Star:
Police on Tuesday night detained Abdul Moktadir, a key player in displaying and distributing among locals some Facebook images insulting the Quran on the evening of September 29 in Ramu.
It was the spreading of those images by Moktadir and his friend Omar Faruk that apparently provoked Muslims to torch a dozen Buddhist temples and pagodas and damage six others in Ramu that night.
The mayhem begun soon after the two showed those images, tagged in a Buddhist youth Uttam Kumar Barua’s Facebook account, to locals at Faruk’s mobile servicing shop at Fakirabazar in Ramu.
His friend Faruk, also 18, was detained on October 6, and is now being interrogated by law enforcers over the duo’s role in distributing the photos, police said.
Three days before his detention, Faruk described to this correspondent at the shop how he and Moktadir showed and distributed among people a number of images derogatory to Islam.
