Welcome to Bowling Green, Kentucky, the latest front in the Sunni – Shiite unholy war tearing apart the Middle East.
A Bowling Green man who is a Shia Muslim told the Bowling Green Police Deparmtent that another man, a Sunni, assaulted him during an argument over their respective religious beliefs.
The man who reported the incident did not have visible injuries but told police he was attacked and pushed to the ground.
The alleged assailant, whose name was redacted from police records pending prosecution, made statements to police about “taking care of business like a man” if the victim continued to cause problems for him. He denied that anything physical occurred during the argument.
A witness told police that the two men were arguing over religious beliefs with the assailant criticizing the beliefs of the Shia Muslim man, and the argument progressed to a shoving match.
Now how many Sunnis and Shiites do you need for there to be enough critical mass for these conflicts to turn violent? There already have been violent clashes between Sunnis and Shiites in the UK and Canada. Now Kentucky.
