The dynamiting of the 1,500 year old Buddha carvings at Bamian [March, 2001], the largest in the world, by no-less than Abdul Wali, the Taliban Minister for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice.

The demented enforcement of the decree of Namelessness, of ‘No-re-presentation’, in Literal Islam.
