Muslim Taxi Driver Shot At For Being Muslim

Donate To Discover The Truth

Here we go again! Another American terrorist attack. An innocent taxi driver was shot at just for being Muslim.

A Passenger in a taxi was ranting on about ISIS (Daesh) terrorists. Instead of paying the taxi driver his fare when he was dropped off at his house, the attacker went inside his house came out and as soon as the taxi driver saw what the man had in his hand he sped away. While driving away his car was shot at multiple times. Shooting him in the back.

Those who rant about Isis and then attack innocent peaceful Muslims, are exactly same as Daesh (ISIS) extremists in the Middle-East. There is no difference between the two.

Raw Story reports:

A Muslim taxi cab driver was shot in Pittsburgh by a man who ranted against Islamic State militants before running into his house to grab a rifle instead of paying his fare.

The 38-year-old Moroccan immigrant said he picked up the man about 1 a.m. Thanksgiving outside Rivers Casino, and he said the passenger began questioning him about his background, reported the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

“He started the conversation and began to ask questions like, ‘You seem to be like a Pakistani guy. Are you from Pakistan?’” said the driver, who asked to remain anonymous because he feared for his safety.

The driver explained he came from Morocco but insisted he was “an American guy” — but that didn’t satisfy the passenger.

“Then he continued the conversation,” the driver said. “He began to speak about ISIS killing people. I told him ‘Actually, I’m against ISIS. I don’t like them.’ I even told him that they are killing innocent people. I noticed that he changed his tone and he began to satirize Muhammad, my prophet, and began to shift to his personal life. He mentioned that he has two kids and was in prison for some time.”

When they arrived at the man’s house in Hazelwood, he asked the driver to wait because he had left his wallet inside.

“I waited for just five minutes, I think, and I noticed that he came out of the house carrying a rifle in his hand,” the driver said. “I noticed him coming toward me. I didn’t hesitate. I [made] a fast decision to leave and drove my taxi away because I felt he was going to do something, there is danger he would shoot me or something. I felt like he had the intention to kill me.”

The man fired multiple gunshots at the driver’s cab, blasting out the rear window and shooting him in the back.

The driver drove several blocks before pulling over and flagging down another driver to ask for help.

He remains hospitalized in stable condition, the newspaper reported, but the bullet is still lodged between his shoulder blades.

“In our religion, Islam, we forgive, even in such conditions,” the driver told the Post-Gazette. “I learned this from our prophet Muhammad. We don’t take revenge. I could forgive this, but I still want my rights.”

The Cranberry Taxi Service cab was equipped with a video camera, but no arrests have been made.
