'Suspicious' Fire At Islamic Boarding School

Some 128 pupils and staff have been evacuated after a "suspicious" fire broke out at an Islamic boarding school in London.

Police were called to the Darul Uloom School, in Foxbury Avenue, Chislehurst, at 11.50pm on Saturday.

Two men were treated for smoke inhalation and 10% of the building was damaged during the blaze, which was brought under control within an hour.

Sky News' Charlotte Lomas said there would be a police update around 2pm, "which does suggest, perhaps that this fire was deliberate".

It follows a rise in religious hatred crimes after the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby in Woolwich last month.

Last week, a Somali cultural centre and mosque was burned to the ground in Muswell Hill, north London, and the letters "EDL" - the initials of the English Defence League - were found scrawled on the outside.

We are going to be reading about backlashes more often, and not just in the UK.

So why wasn't the killing of Drummer Lee Rigby treated as a religious hate crime, in addition to being a cold-blooded murder?  In addition to smoke, I smell a double standard.

I think it was set by someone in the school.. 99% of all hate crime cases are mostly false.
