Commenting article: Bulgarian Muslims Victimized after Burgas Terrorist Attack - Chief Mufti

Bulgaria's Chief Mufti's Office has complained of the public attitudes against the Bulgarian Muslims in the wake of last week's terrorist attack in the Bulgarian Black Sea city of Burgas.

The July 18 terrorist attack in Bulgaria's Burgas, also known as the Burgas Bus Bombing, killed 5 Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver at the Sarafovo Airport near Burgas. The attack was later discovered to have been committed by a suicide bomber, whose origin is still unknown.

The Bulgarian victim of the Burgas Bus Bombing was in fact from the ethnic Bulgarian Muslim community known as Pomaks, 36-year-old Mustafa Kisyov from the village of Yurukovo, Yakoruda Municipality in Southwestern Bulgaria.

Mr Mufti, can't you issue a fatwa, or something, against people who murder innocent bus drivers and tourists?
