Police in riot gear were called to a so-called refugee camp over the weekend after hundreds of men brawled violently over different interpretations of the Quran, resulting in five hospitalisations.
The brawl in the early hours of Sunday morning in the Leimen camp in Baden-Württemberg, Germany was triggered by inter-Islamic friction between different interpretations of the faith. Pakistani Muslims at the migrant centre had discovered that a group of Muslims from Afghanistan had been drinking alcohol and accused them of being “bad Muslims” for doing so, reports the Stuttgarter Nachrichten.
The situation quickly escalated from this point and resulted in a violent riot. Two squad cars initially responded to reports of a fight, but a call for backup resulted in a total of 32 police vehicles on the scene, with attendant officers.
Remarkably, there were no arrests, but a police spokesman said ten Afghans were taken to a nearby police station to sober up. Of the 500 reported to be living at the migrant centre, some 200 were involved in the brawl, reports Focus.
This is not the first time religious differences between Muslims has led to blows among co-religionists in Germany’s overcrowded migrant camps.
Breitbart London reported in August on another such riot, the intensity of which forced riot police to take cover in a nearby building as the warring Muslim groups united to face their common enemy, the forces of law and order in Europe.
The violence started over differing interpretations of the Koran, which was exacerbated by one Muslim tearing out the pages of a Koran and stuffing them down a toilet to demonstrate his strength of feeling. The friction manifested itself in mass demonstrations and unbridled violence, as the migrants trashed their own home, tearing down partition walls, smashing windows and breaking down doors while setting fires.
As the rioters turned on police officers and journalists alike fled the scene as rampaging men with iron bars charged while screaming “Allahu Akbar”. Six police officers were hospitalised, along with 12 rioters. The same migrant camp has now risen in protest three times.
