The following fictional report is modeled on this BBC story about Wednesday’s attack in Norway, with relevant nouns and adjectives changed:

Rawalpindi: Knife Attack Appears to be Terrorism — Officials

A deadly knife attack in Pakistan which left five people dead appears to have been an act of terror, Pakistan’s security service (ISI) said.

However, a motive has not yet been determined.

The suspect, a 37-year-old Afghan citizen, had converted to Christianity and there were fears he had been radicalised, police say.

He is accused of killing four women and a man on Wednesday night in the northern town of Rawalpindi.

Why do Christian converts not carry out violent attacks?

Why is it that nobody ever has to be concerned about the “radicalization” of a convert to Christianity?

When is the last time you heard of a convert to Christianity killing someone for religious reasons?

The situation is not at all symmetrical. Contrary to what the media and your political leaders keep telling you, Islam is not a “peaceful religion just like other religions.”
