Former Muslim, Sandra Solomon, claims she was abused under Sharia law when she lived in Saudi Arabia. She converted to Christianity, and has been a vocal critic of Islam who recently made headlines when she ripped up a Koran and shoved its tattered pages under the wiper blades of cars parked outside a Mississauga mosque.
A video of the incident was posted on Facebook, but has since been deleted, and while it’s her right to do this, I do understand how ripping up any holy book would be grotesquely offensive to adherents of any religion.
I don’t believe such an act should be illegal however, nor would I classify the shredding of a Koran or Bible or Torah as a hate crime but the question must be asked; was this action effective or was it counter-productive?
My gut feeling is that Solomon did more harm than good and may have given a gift to those who dine out on Islamic victimhood.
