A lorry driver intentionally ploughed through a crowd in Nice, France during the Bastille celebration. According to news reports, the driver deliberately crashed into people and emerged, shooting sporadically. There were reports of guns and grenades inside the lorry. Also, identity papers of French-Tunisian were said to be found in the lorry.
According to various news reports, the death toll has reached 77 and rising. Many of the victims were children.
The murderer was shot dead by police officers.
This is beyond appalling. I am lost for words to describe these senseless killings.
And to think some despicable religious monsters are celebrating these latest killings on social media, happily counting the number of rising victims and praising Allah on Twitter!
Really, This world is not my home.
The French President, Francois Hollande, in a press conference said-
France as a whole is under the threat of Islamic terrorism. We have to demonstrate absolute vigilance and show determination that is unfailing.
France has been hit by tragedy once again. This monstrosity of using a lorry to deliberately kill people, many people who only came out to celebrate their national day.
France is in tears; it is hurting but it is strong. And She will be stronger. Always stronger than the fanatics who wish to hurt us.
We’ve really got a long way to go to rid this planet of monsters who live amongst us whose only ambition is to inflict pain and sorrow on innocent people under the guise of their religion and politics.
Yes, Religion is a cancer that we must tackle.
Yes, religion is an instrument of oppression, very useful in convincing people to commit atrocities especially with political incentives. After all those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. As Blaise Pascal said, “Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.”
