Voice of sanity...

...The paradox of protest

The movie―reportedly made by a Los Angeles-based Copt, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who has been in and out of prisons since the 1990s,―has been on YouTube for weeks. But in the last few days, apparently in a bid to show that it is all a big lie, Muslims have absurdly decided to behave much in line with how the movie represents them.
It's funny how the article's intro repeats the only line in the column where the author is laying the blame on Islamophobics (that too not as a defensible cause of the violence that ensued). But for Mint's sub or web editor to have chosen that line tells us something about the state of journalism today.
