Muslim places and Shops attacked In Central Africa

 

Thousands of Muslims forced to flee their homes in Central Africa Republic to escape militia attacks, Christian militias looted and burnt a mosque in the capital city of Bangui. Amnesty International said in a report that mosque is partially damaged and some mobbish people have burned a part of it. They have also burning down the home of the imam, and they were really dismantling it stone-by-stone. The attackers were also yelling anti-Muslim slogans, making the sign of cutting somebody's throat and demanding the president to step down. The country has been thrown into violence after President Michel Djotodia declared himself the country’s first Muslim leader after ousting President Bozize on March 24. Taking the helms of power, Djotodia has struggled to rein in members of the now-dissolved Seleka group that swept him to power nine months ago. According to news reports, rogue former rebels turned warlords have set up little fiefdoms and sown terror in villages. As a result, Christian militiamen known as "anti-balaka" launched reprisal attacks against Muslims, killing scores of Muslims and forcing thousands outside their villages. Chanting 'kill the Muslims', gangs have launched attacks on Muslim properties and mosques, vandalizing all shops that were believed to be belonging to Muslims..
