Australia: Sikh bus driver is set on fire


A muslim hate crime related to religion? Sikhs are perpetual targets of muslims. Dousing him in flammable liquid is an indication (it can also be an unknown dispute within his own community).

The fact that Australian police considered to view it as an act of terror, but decided it was not terrorism, should give a hint who the perpetrator may be. No names, of course, mentioned…

Bus driver dead after a passenger ‘threw an incendiary device at him’ causing the vehicle to EXPLODE

  • Manmeet Alisher killed after passenger doused him in flammable liquid
  • 29-year-old driver was pulled up to a stop when passenger, 48, boarded 
  • He poured flammable liquid on him and set him alight just after 9am
  • Queensland bus was on Beaudesert Rd in Moorooka, south of Brisbane
  • Alleged offender in custody and police said there is no apparent motive 
  • Almost a dozen others were treated by paramedics for smoke inhalation 

A bus driver has been killed in a ‘senseless’ attack after a passenger ‘threw an incendiary device’ at him and set him alight in Brisbane.

The bus was travelling along a main road in Moorooka, south of the city centre, on Friday just after 9am when driver Manmeet Alisher, 29, pulled into a stop to allow three more passengers on board, including a man, 48, who police allege started the fire.

Queensland’s police commissioner Ian Stewart said there was no apparent motive for the horrific attack.

A local taxi driver has been hailed a ‘hero’ after he busted down the back door of the bus to allow the six terrified passengers, including three children, escape the inferno.

He said after the front of the bus exploded the driver ran out ‘covered in flames, head to toe’.

‘The people were kicking the window and screaming at me to open the door,’ Aguek Nyok told the Brisbane Times.

Mr Nyok said the six passengers on board were desperately trying to open the rear doors as the front of bus was engulfed in flames.

‘Even when the door opened it kept trying to close on me and it was so, so hot in there,’ he said.

He said the alleged offender was the first person to get off the bus after suffering minor burns himself and appeared to be ‘shaken’.

Superintendent Jim Keogh addressed the media from the scene just after 11am Brisbane time and said they had the 48-year-old man in custody.

He said the ‘compliant’ man was waiting at the scene for officers and believes it was a completely ‘random attack’ with no apparent motive.

‘Words escape me. It’s a horrific incident,’ he said.

‘A bus driver going about doing his business, supporting the community and has taken his life from him in a senseless and needless act’.

The bus was travelling along Beaudesert Road in Moorooka on Friday morning when the 29-year-old driver pulled into a stop to allow three more passengers on board 

Paramedics arrived just after firefighters had contained the blaze to treat passengers for smoke inhalation  

Superintendent Keogh said the bus driver stood little chance of survival as the fire was 'substantial'

He said Mr Alisher stood little chance of survival as the fire was ‘substantial’.

Mr Alisher was a casual worker and it was his second week on the job.

Superintendent Keogh said officers do not believe the incident was an act of terrorism and officers have also ruled out robbery as a potential motive.

Police are working to notify the driver’s family of the death.

Firefighters managed to contain the blaze on Mayfield Road by 9.20am and 11 people were treated on the side of the road by paramedics for smoke inhalation.

They were later taken to hospital as a precaution.

After the 48-year-old man was taken into custody, homicide detectives shut down the street to launch their investigation.

Onlooker Julie Meadley said she saw a mother and child banging on the door from inside the bus when onlookers, including Mr Nyok, jumped into action to pry the doors open.

After the attack, Rail, Tram and Bus Union Queensland state secretary Tom Brown said grief counsellors would be available for other drivers, but many will be ‘too upset to work’.

  1. Having interfaced with Sikhs, I would, with no other evidence, accept the culprit to be a Muslim Supremacist, or some other vicious, homicidal lunatic who arrived at his condition through organic brain disease as opposed to specialized religious training.

  2. The crime was done by a non-muslim man who has mental issues, named Anthony Mark Edward O’Donohue. this is the most unprofessional and completely made up news website that I have ever seen. I agree that in today world their is a lot of bad mouslems, but if you want to evaluate a religion that has existed for 1400 years, you have to review full history, not judge 10 or 20 years period, read about Salah Eldin and other Muslims. Good luck spreading fake hate news…

      • Wow…are you serious, this is your reply. Ok, lets see what you reply shows
        (1) You are completely unprofessional, as I have supplied facts about the person who has done it and anyone can google it, and instead of apologizing and deleting the FAKE news (of course in this case you have to delete the whole website caz all news are twisted), you just say that is published!!!, link for my source below from ABC new Australia.
        http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-10-29/brisbane-bus-attack-man-in-court-charged-manmeet-alishers-murder/7977322

        (2) You know absolutely nothing about Islam (very surprising that you created a website to let people hate islam without knowing anything about Islam), caz Adam is a Moslem name and guess what a very popular one, if you have any basic idea about islam you will understand that all moslems believe in all prophets including Adam and Jesus and Moses…link below showing Adam is islamic name.
        http://quranicnames.com/adam/

        (3) You prove that you fake news: Of course I am a moslem, and I am clearly defending Islam and I never denied this, why you think I made up my name, the only reason would be that you got used to make things up,and you assume everyone is doing same.

        If you have courage to respond, I would suggest to spend 5 minutes of research before replying, or better get someone who have any idea about Islam, not just hate.

      • You’ve been completely duped.

        The only primates with real Head Monkeys live in troops.

        If you think there really is a Head Monkey, you’d be more comfortable living in the zoo.

        And no, I won’t be spending the After Life in Purgatory because a Magic Spirit condemned me there. Nor will anyone.

        There is no After Life, no Purgatory and no Magic Spirit. There are millions of fools who contest this, but they will all die, along with the rest of us, and stay completely dead, exactly like the rest of us.

        So if you have something that needs doing, do it now. You get no other chance.

      • So now after proving that the news are completely fake a new subject… Great… so you are saying no life after death….so you have dead friends who tell you what they saw after they died !!!!!…you are right you only have one chance…just imagine that you had your chance and you believed that there is nothing after death then you died…and you found you were wrong…guess what will happen to you….???? and as you said, it is one chance and you lost it…just think about it… And by the way everyone who talks about islam thinks that we believe only based on spiritual staff, but actually our faith is based on many things in Quoran that were mentioned hundred of years ago and were later discovered to be correct scientific facts…that made us believe that no human can predict that staff… you can read about that, that is if you are interested, at least if you want to prove that we are wrong..

        Regarding the Video that you sent , that was in Iraq as mentioned, before USA go to Iraq to steal oil and kill thousands of people after they said a lie (that Iraq has nuclear weapons), which was later discovered that it is actually a lie to support their visit to steal oil and kill people….

        And about the pigs and monkey thing the guy was talking about, it is also based on ancient history, which you know nothing about, and even if you knew you wont believe it, caz you believe that there is no creator…the whole universe was created alone…!!!!

        good luck…but as you said you have one chance…make use of it….and read Bible, Quoran, tawra….and history…then decide …

      • I “decided” many decades ago, sixty years ago this year, in fact. Start demanding proof and you will be apprised that there is none, but there is sanction for demanding to see it.

        And I needn’t prove anything. The brain-dead religionists are the ones promulgating the bizarre spirit world hypotheses. Where’s the evidence? If any of it were true, then why cannot any of it be proven?

        That religion is evil is obvious to open-minded children. And Islam, the eraser of history and culture, is the proof. Just to be Muslim is the moral equivalent of swinging a sledge hammer at statuary at Palmyra.

        Clearly for you, religion is a mental prison. And it is time for your escape.

        It is time for religion to be tossed upon the ash heap of history. And for all religionists to start thinking for themselves. As distasteful as that may seem, it soon becomes a pleasant habit.

        So join the human elite. Stop believing and start thinking.
