India: Hindu priest dies after brutal beating by Muslim cleric over music on temple loudspeakers

All over the world, the Muslim call to prayer (adhan) blasts out over loudspeakers, sometimes to the annoyance of local citizens, waking them up at all hours. Take, for example, last January in Israel, when the Knesset proposed bills to limit the use of loudspeakers for the adhan. The initiative was met with fury in the Islamic world, which saw it as “an attempt to muffle the Muslim call to prayer.” And Last August, a woman was jailed for 18 months in Indonesia — the nation with the world’s largest Muslim population — for merely complaining about the volume of a mosque’s call to prayer.

Now, in a signature example of Islamic supremacy, a Hindu temple priest was beaten so badly by an imam over the volume of the music on his temple loudspeakers that the priest suffered a ruptured liver and broken ribs, among other injuries. Days later, the Hindu priest died.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
