Teacher's hand cut off for slighting Muhammed...
This is in India...
TWO Indian men have been arrested over an attack on a college teacher who had his hand cut off for setting an exam question that allegedly insulted Muslims.
T. J. Joseph, 52, had his right arm severed at the wrist as he was returning home from church with his mother and sister on Sunday, and since underwent an operation to have the limb sown back on.
Mr Joseph, a lecturer at a private Christian-run college in the southern state of Kerala, was on bail since April after being arrested over a question in internal exams that some Muslim groups claimed included an insulting reference to the Prophet Muhammad.
"An eight-member gang blocked his vehicle and chopped off his right arm," B. Sandya, inspector general of the local police said.
"It was a planned operation. We suspect a radical Muslim group who targeted him before."
Mr Sandya said police traced the attackers' vehicle and made two arrests.
Five doctors worked for 16 hours to re-attach Joseph's hand, but the outcome of the operation was uncertain.
