The Mob (fellow students) accomplished this heinous and Barbaric act in the name of allah...
This certainly, is not in the name of God.
If your belief system tells you to kill another Person for your god, then your god is TOO SMALL.
And if you, without understanding subscribe to such a system, It is time you ask yourself pertinent questions; is this faith LIVABLE?
