Twenty people who were dining in a restaurant in Dhaka, Bangladesh were killed by Islamic terrorists for not being able to recite Koran and not wearing a veil.

Which verse they should have recited ? Though not born a Muslim , I can tell the English translation of a few, though not by heart.

Should they recite this

Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,              5:33


or this

And you did not kill them, but it was Allah who killed them. And you threw not, [O Muhammad], when you threw, but it was Allah who threw that He might test the believers with a good test. Indeed, Allah is Hearing and Knowing                                                                                         8:17

If those verses were recited, it would have reinforced the belief of the terrorist that heinous cruelty they are doing against those who cannot recite their holy book is for the mythical god and they will land up in heaven.

People may still say it has nothing to do with religious beliefs !

    Not only is Allah a cruel monster, but he appears to be an impotent one as well, because he cannot enforce his will without using human agents. Is he really worthy of worship?
