When a group of pranksters read out passages of the ‘Holy Quran’ to people in the street, they had a twist in store.
The group, Dit Is Normaal, were actually reading passages from the Holy Bible, after having covered the book to make it look like the Quran.
Now while you might like to think the people involved would at least question the words, they were not only quick to believe exactly what they’d been told, but also condemned the passages and concepts like an eye for an eye.The role of women also came in for some flack, along with the fact the passages are seen as ‘the absolute truth’ in the eyes of some people.
Because it’s never Christianity that could do anything wrong, it must be Islam where the brainwashing occurs. Obviously.
So basically, it turns out that not only do people not actually know the difference between what’s in the Bible and what’s in other religious books, they are pretty quick to believe anything they’ve been told.
The video is brilliant, and unsurprisingly has now gone viral.
