Two Muslim men broke into a Catholic convent. After vandalizing the place, they attacked the nuns and began shouting ‘you must convert to Islam’ while praying in Arabic.
Can you imagine if this had been a Christian doing this at a mosque to a group of Muslims? From the report:
On Friday, November 10, two men entered a monastery in Verdun (Meuse) and urged the sisters to convert to Islam. They were arrested the next day.
Two men in their thirties , bearded and dressed “normally”, caused unrest on November 10, 2017 in the Carmelite Carmelite community of Verdun, said the city’s prosecutor, confirming Republican East information.
According to a statement by the Prosecutor of the Republic of Verdun, Guillaume Dupont, these two individuals have entered the monastery and one of them “would have written the words Allah Akbar (God is great in Arabic, Ed) on the book of gold of the church “.
According to the bishop of Verdun, the two men “presented themselves as announcers and told them: if you do not convert, you will go to hell” and “prayed in Arabic” during vespers, the Christian prayer evening.
Arriving in the monastery, the two men were not threatening and they even discussed with a sister. The two men left as they had come “thanking the sister for her hospitality,” says the bishop quoted in the regional daily.
According to the Verdun prosecutor’s office, “no violence has been committed” and “no connection with Islamic terrorism” has been established.
An investigation was conducted by Verdun police station, still according to the prosecutor’s office. The two individuals were arrested on November 11 , the day after the events.
“They were brought before the prosecutor of the Republic of Verdun on 13 November, then placed under judicial control by the Judge of liberty and detention” and will be tried next April for “aggravated voluntary violence without total incapacity for work and in meeting ” according to Guillaume Dupont.
For the imam of Verdun, such acts “it is not done (…) This is not normal . We are not going to violate the sacredness of a place of worship, “he responded by saying that he would soon meet the sisters who remain marked by this episode. (source)
