Kashmiri Earthquake

Following the Asian Tsunami, Muslim cleric Dr Yusuf al-Qaradawi suggested that it was "punishment from Allah". "People must ask themselves why this earthquake occurred in this area and not in others. Whoever examines these areas discovers that they are tourism areas . . . where the forbidden acts are widespread, as well as alcohol consumption, drug use and acts of abominations."

Hopefully, he doesn't consider the Kashmiri earthquake to be "punishment from Allah" but another catastrophic natural disaster leaving many thousands of people dead or homeless.

"God told me to invade Iraq, honest!"

It seems God's got it in for Asia/Middle East.
