OMG! ISIS publicly crushing babies of Christians to death!
ISIS publicly crushing babies of Xtians to death who fail to convert.
Hoax or Fact:
The set of three pictures going viral on the internet claims to show a 'horrific' incident where an ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) cleric is about to crush the Baby of a Christian family who refused to convert to Islam. The story isn't a fact, thankfully!
Source of Story
Although there have been some messages on social media sites about ISIS militants crushing babies, there are no credible reports to validate the claims. The set of pictures and the story in question appear to have originated from a 25 September 2014 article on website politicalears.com, wherein the three photo slide show is said to depict an ISIS cleric killing a baby belonging to a Christian family who refused to convert to Islam. According to the article, the followers of "religion of peace" (ISIS) have become barbarians, started another crusade and want to take over the world.
About Political Ears
The Political Ears website has been publishing too good to be true stories, most of which appear satirical, although their about information says otherwise. A 15 Sep. 2014 article on politicalears.com titled "Three of Five Detainees Swapped are now ISIS Leaders" is a reproduction of satirical article on nationalreport.net published on 13 Sep. 2014. Another 31 Mar. 2014 article on politicalears.com titled "Barack Obama Announces His Plan to Run for Historic Third Term" is again a reproduction of satirical article on nationalreport.net published on 23 Oct. 2013. Here, they tried to wend off the non-believers saying the article was filed under satire and that it was an April fool’s joke. So Political Ears website does publish attention grabbing satirical stories, and notably, the website has a Political Ear Store that sells various stuff.
About the Pictures
The picture showing a Muslim kicking around a small baby is not because of refusal of the parents to convert to Islam, it actually shows a cheat "spiritual healer" in a rural village in Dhaka of Bangladesh, who was arrested by local police for his horrendous treatment methods (see Image Gallery). During investigation, the so called Pir (spiritual healer) Amzad Fakir and his assistants accepted that they tortured defenseless women and children in the name of 'spiritual treatment' only to pocket money. Unfortunately, superstitions still dominate rural Muslim areas in Bangladesh and some other countries as well.
