A Minneapolis man who went viral for supporting the anti-police rioters who burned down his restaurant has had his new restaurant robbed.
Liberal tolerance of riots and looting in the name of social justice has backfired.
Then: “Let my building burn, Justice needs to be served, put those officers in jail,” Ruhel Islam, a 42-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant, said last May of his restaurant being destroyed by rioters following the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd, per a viral Facebook post by his daughter.
- Islam’s daughter, Hafsa Islam, later wrote a Washington Post op-ed headlined, “My Family’s Restaurant Caught Fire in the Minneapolis Protests. Let It Burn.”
Now: Ruhel Islam said Wednesday his new restaurant, “Curry in a Hurry,” located two miles from the ruins of the first one, was earlier in the week burglarized by thieves who also stole his company van.
- Islam told Fox 9 he will not press charges if the van is returned and offered the thieves food and employment, saying, “Come work with us and solve the problem.”
A Circle K owner went viral last September for telling looters “I was protesting with you all” as they destroyed her business.
