A student who mocked Isis on Facebook is being investigated over claims his post put "minority students at risk and in a state of panic and fear," the Independent reports.
Robbie Travers, a 21-year-old third-year law student, is being probed by the University of Edinburgh over claims he committed a "hate crime," even though no criminal investigation by the police has taken place.
The complaint came when he shared a comment after the US Air Force dropped a massive ordnance air blast (MOAB, or "mother of all bombs") on a network of Isis tunnels in Afghanistan in April.
Mr Travers wrote on Facebook: “Excellent news that the US administration and Trump ordered an accurate strike on an Isis network of tunnels in Afghanistan.
"I'm glad we could bring these barbarians a step closer to collecting their 72 virgins".
Esme Allman, a second-year history student, accused Mr Travers of "blatant Islamophobia."
Here is a question though:
Didn't they tell us that ISIS had nothing to do with Islam. So how can insulting ISIS be inferred to be Islamophobic? ;)
