Can you guess?

The following brief news story appeared in the New York Post:

A Queens teen was arrested yesterday after placing fliers in his teachers' mailboxes asking them to convert to Islam - then made threats once he was caught, authorities said.

Yaseen Chowdhury, 17, of Woodside, wrote the fliers himself and put them in the mailboxes at the Renaissance Charter School in Jackson Heights, sources said.

When confronted there about the fliers, he made unspecified verbal threats, according to the sources.

Chowdhury was charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime.

A Department of Education spokesman did not return a call seeking comment.

The student's religion was not immediately known,
Not immediately known?

Maybe not, but I think we can all guess.

In any case, let’s see if the Post reports Yaseen Chowdhury's religion when it – you know – finds out what it is.

Thanks John

First, I like the law to be equal for all, and I understand that's a fantasy, but why were they chasing him down in the first place?

For putting a religous flier in the mailboxes is a problem?

Must be more to this story.
