• “Convert or we’ll cut your tongue.”


    I’ve sat through many an altar call, enticing me to join one religious group or another, but none were quite like this.

    A 24-year Indian student in Bonn was brutally attacked by Islamic extremists who slashed his tongue when he refused to convert, German police said today.

    The Indian student was attacked on Christmas eve when he was on the way to his place in Bonn.

    The men enquired about his religion and asked him to convert to Islam, warning him that they would cut his tongue if he refused to do so, Der Spiegel reported.

    The student, who was not identified, told the police that he was attacked by two men from behind after he ignored them.

    The attackers beat him up and slashed his tongue and flew in a car.

    The police didn’t release any injury details. The student was hospitalized for one day, then released.
