Joked about the Koran - slaughtered?
A terrible story is happening now with video blogger Ilya Maddison. 5 years ago, he was pretty stupid, rude and inappropriate joking about the Koran. I never condone his humor, an intelligent person wouldn’t talk about things holy to others. But then there was still no Charlie Hebdo, there was no public discussion and insult to the feelings of believers, and many allowed themselves to joke like that.
A few days ago, this video was found and the author started a joke. Thousands of Muslims lined up to cut off Maddison's head.
Do you think the state should intervene in such conflicts?
Collected for you a brief help on the situation, if not watched.
Two days ago, there were news on the network that Islamist bloggers threaten murder Ilya Maddison. A day later it became known that because of the threats Maddison had left left Russia.
WHO IS ILJA MADDISON?
A video blogger who is actually named Ilya Davydov. He is 28. He is one of the first Russian video bloggers who managed to gain great popularity. Known as a reviewer for video games and movies, as well as a stand-up comedian and TV host.
BECAUSE THAT HAS HIM BEEN DESTROYED BY MURDER?
In 2012, at one of the stand-ups Maddison joked about the Koran.
“I came to the toilet, sat down, read the suras, and then I understand that, fucking, there is no toilet paper in the toilet <...> I had to wipe my toes <...> This is so humiliating! Well, thank God, nothing happened with the Koran! ”
Recently, someone stumbled upon this video, and an old joke surfaced in the Telegram channel dedicated to Islam. A posting video man stated that Maddison "insults the religion of Islam and the Koran."
AND WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?
The video quickly began to spread across social networks and Muslim online communities. Some particularly recovered Muslims began to threaten Maddison with murder.
As a result, Maddison had to delete all his accounts on social networks: Twitter, Instagram and VKontakte. Later, it became known from Maddison's friends that he left the country: “He quickly collected things, documents and money, changed Simka and the device, plunged into the car and drove away in an unknown direction.”
WHAT MADDISON THINKS ABOUT THE SITUATION?
Portal Kanobu.ru, having contacted Madison's friends, reports from their words that everything is fine with Illya and he does not want to discuss what happened.There are also reports that he did not turn to law enforcement. According to a friend, Maddison takes the situation seriously.
Madison's latest posting on Instagram was a picture of the bible.
“I read the Bible before bedtime and pray for the salvation of the souls of all those who write me terrible threats on instagram. God forgive you for your anger, brothers. And me, for being once young and stupid. All adequate - peace and good. "
WHERE IS NOW MADDISON AND WHEN IT WILL RETURN?
Unknown. He promised to post a video message explaining the situation when he would have the opportunity.
HOW DOES THE PUBLIC RESPONSE TO THE SITUATION?
Assistant deputy of the State Duma Bulach Chankalaev wrote a post demanding to punish the "scum" under the laws of the Russian Federation. The post contained threats of physical violence. Now the publication is already deleted.
For Maddison, only friends and colleagues intervene, in particular, comedian and video blogger Yury Khovansky.
I described my hut: do not think that I want to contain Ilja in the basement. Let's make an impregnable fort out of the living room, as in the "Caucasian Captive"- Yury Khovansky (@RussianStandup) January 19, 2017
His opinion about the incident was expressed by the author of the Telegram-channel D /// IHAD.
“Fatwa about Ilya Maddison and the Mujahideen who attacked him.
1) Speech with jokes about the Quran is just miserable before the impossible.
2) The brainless monkeys are even more miserable, who, seeing a dull video 100 years ago, instantly went to Maddison's instagram invoking, promising and crippling him / killing him.
It is characteristic that not only and not so much the supporters of the IG, who are ardent “Wahhabis”, went to bomb Maddison’s accounts, as the usual Dagestani kayfariki, who never opened the Koran for the last time, and never last performed the namaz ”.
SUCH ALREADY HAPPENED?
With Maddison - no, but in general - yes. Recently, rapper Vyacheslav Karelin, known as MS Purulent, found himself in a similar situation. In October last year, he began to receive threats due to a replica (18+) during the rap battle in 2014.
“Tolerance is my iron skill. *** [I have] Chechen, Asian, Chinese, Armenian. Houmi, I ******* [don't give a damn] what color your mother is. ”
Video with the performance of Purulent appeared in the Publications of “The Terrible Fortress” and “Chechen Video” on VKontakte.
On November 4, the Day of National Unity, Purulent published a video of apologies, after which the conflict was settled.
