This makes me think that the number of Muslims in the world is not as large as was thought.
 
There are way too many not practising!!

Ohh!! So, if he saw the warning, is it his fault? Is it a reason to kill someone?
 
And I repeat again, where is the problem of drinking tea in the same cup? I cannot understand it!!
No God wants the killing, but the peace.

Already explained earlier.
 
'I cannot understand it'
 
Niether does anybody here. Perhaps one should ask the perpetrator, obviously ppl here dont feel the same way, so cannot help you understand a feeling they are not aware of - or condone.

If you want to talk about any Christian who killed a muslim for drinking tea in a Christian cup, I have no problem to conden it, be sure.
 
In the same way, as Catholic, I denounce the abuses to the children from some pastors, as well as other acts which are quite away from the real meaning of my religion as Jesus explained to us.
 
I just brought here this case because I was really shocked when I read it, but in any place I said that this is my idea of Islam, opposite.

Pati,
 
This is not a part of Islam. To ask us to explain why a person would bahave in such a way is like asking you to explain why the KKK lynched people or why so many people go on murderous shooting sprees.
 
Since it is not a part of our religion nor a part of our mentality regarding non-Muslims we can't possibly speak to his motives or reasoning.
 
Maybe it had nothing to do with drinking from the same cup. Who knows?

This type of behavior is more reminiscent of the Jahiliyah times, the times of ignorance before Islam.  Those people should be arrested and punished.
Say: "Truly, my prayer and my service of sacrifice, my life and my death, are (all) for Allah, the Cherisher of the Worlds. (Surat al-Anaam: 162)
