University of Texas Reopens After Bomb Scare Event: Two major universities in the United States including the University of Texas were evacuated after a bomb scare. The university located at Austin and one other was evacuated in a state of emergency after a caller threatened about bombing on the phone. According to reports, the caller was linked to the Al Qaeda.
Both universities received the bomb-threatening phone calls within minutes of each other, and on a day when tension was at its peak in the US. Another university had received a similar bomb threat when it was reported that there was a bomb in a parked car.
The Universities were opened on Friday at noon. President of the University of Texas told the media that he is very confident that the campus building is safe from any threat. He added that the situation is assessed by local, state and federal authorities to assure safety of the students and other personnel. The campus has about fifty-one thousand students enrolled.
These bomb scares could be a part of the Muslims’ reaction to a film that insults their beloved Prophet. Throughout the week the Americans took images of burning flags and news of US embassies under attack. The US Ambassador to Libya was also killed in a similar attack. The authorities and security officials have said that there is no proof yet that these bomb scares are part of these protests.
The Muslims are not all abiding by this form of protest. Peaceful protest or ‘reaction’ has been seen by American Muslims, who distributed pamphlets and giveaways to enlighten people about their Prophet. According to the Muslim community, the main reason for these events in misinformation and miscommunication – thus they chose to inform people about the life of their Prophet, who some Americans insulted in a recent film.
