Christian cannibal eats Muslim man’s leg after a gruesome attack in the Central African Republic

THE growing problem of sectarianism in the Central African Republic (CAR) since the installation last March of a Muslim President, Michel Djotodia, was grimly highlighted today when the BBC carried a report of the killing of a Muslim man by Christian vigilantes.

The gang was led by Ouandja Magloire, who calls himself “Mad Dog”. He told BBC’s Paul Wood that he had seen his victim sitting on a minibus and decided to follow him because he wanted “revenge” for the murder of family members.

He said he had been “angry” because Muslims killed his pregnant wife, his sister-in-law and her baby.

More and more people joined him until he was at the head of a mob of some 20 youths.

They forced the bus driver to stop and dragged the Muslim man out on the street, where he was beaten and stabbed before being set on fire.

Footage of the incident shows “Mad Dog” eating the man’s leg. According to eyewitnesses, no-one tried to intervene.

Acts of cannibalism are rare in CAR, where sectarianism is a recent development.

Djotodia’s Seleka’s rebel group has been accused of targeting Christian civilians, leading to the creation of self-defence groups known as anti-balaka.

Those groups have in turn been accused of atrocities against members of the Muslim minority.

There was jubilation in CAR at the weekend when Djotodia resigned. A transitional national council has two weeks to choose a new president.

CAR has huge deposits of gold, diamonds and other minerals but has seen a succession of coups and rebellions since independence from France in 1960, leaving most of its people living in poverty.

    Not only does religion rot your mind, now it can rot your teeth as well. (So remember, kids – always carry a toothbrush if you’re planning on engaging in a spot of inter-religion cannibalism!)

    Ah yes, religion. Destroying minds and bodies for countless centuries. Wonderful stuff that organized religious crap. Nice to see that the xtians are just as vile as the muzzies, re: that video of some lunatic jihadi eating the organs of a dead Syrian some time back. Disgusting crap, religion.

    The central rite of Christianity is consumption of a human body.

    There’s a fuller, more descriptive report here:

    It seems he saved the leftovers to make sandwiches later. No, really, he did.

    Kinda wrong. But very funny.

    Read the post then the comments then the post again.
    Did not see much anti-religion here, it just looked like some hungry guy and some easy to kill food, then dinner. I think the islame part was just some BS reason to choose the target.
    But little does he know that the latest research shows that pound for pound the most toxic meat is human.

    We had a muslim hacking to death a British soldier in London and now a Christian hacking a muslim and eating his leg. The common denominator is not religion. Millions all over the world are religious and would not condone such behaviour. The common denominator is black tribal people who hold to traditional ways and pretend to be part of a world religion. Tribal people whether in Africa, Papua New Guinea, or Australia are still the same and in the past at least practised canibalism. All it has done is make racism rear its ugly head because of the cultures the perpetrators have come from.

    Hang on, isn’t eating jesus a regular normality for these people? Followers of Baby jesus and the pantheon of other ‘prophets’ really do think that munching down on jesus flavoured crackers and gorging on his ‘blood’ (or other chosen prophet and really really believing) are normal things to do, how is eating bits of a perceived enemy any different?
