This serves to underscore the need to liberate young people who are indoctrinated every day to believe whatever dogma is conveyed to them by religious authorities. These people need to be taught to use reason, not dogma, to make decisions and to live properly. Of course, this is easier said than done.
Otherwise, you end up with young men and women growing up to become religious fanatics.
Unfortunately, even now, indoctrination in Middle Eastern schools continue, perpetuating the divide between the Arab World and the comparatively reasonable Western world.
It's a shame when you feel compelled to destroy objects, artifacts, etc. because you feel compelled to obey the dogmatic teachings of certain religious authorities. It's quite possibly the biggest imaginable affront to reason and logic.
