Joseph Alois Ratzinger aka Pope Benedict XVI, is 256th head of the Roman Catholic Church. Shortly after his election, he came under fire for issuing derogatory remarks against Islam. However, it seems that the highest office bearer of the Church is still not trying to mend fences.
In his first ‘pilgrimage the the Holy Land’, the Pope landed in Jordan and was taken to the tour of the King Hussein Mosque in the Jordanian capital Amman. Indifferent to Muslim customs, he did not removed his shoes while “touring” the mosque. Vatican sources state that a thickly carpeted walkway was laid for him to walk across the mosque with his shoes on. He did not removed the shoes as he was not asked by his hosts.
We can’t really blame others when Muslims themselves are so hell bent to please Non-Muslims that they even throw the sanctity of mosques on one side.
