The Inhumanity Of Sharia Law

Like millions of others, I was shocked when three years ago I read about the mutilation of a young Afghanistan girl whose husband had cut off her nose and ears as punishment for

running away from his abusive family while he was away fighting with the Taliban. Such a tragic story is almost beyond belief, but like so many unbelievable things, it happened.

Now after three years the girl Aesha Mohammadzai, now a young woman, has a new nose. It is a modern success story that will gladden the heart of many, for she will no longer have to bear the despicable scars of her inhuman treatment at the hands of her husband.

This is just one of the horror stories that emerge on a regular basis from Islamic nations that carry the torch for this despicable form of justice. We condemned with all our power the barbaric acts of the Nazi’s with their death camps so long ago, but it is evident that in the Islamic world, barbarity is still common practice. It is embedded in Islamic culture, for it forms an integral part of their religion. We in the west can do nothing to stop this barbarity under those circumstances. We must stand by on the sidelines until the Islamic people themselves decide to change.

Afghan Women Beaten By The Taliban

The dangerous side to this ideology, is that they want to subjugate the western world with it too, and have Sharia Law imposed in every country across the globe. They will never achieve this of course, but they will willingly die trying. You could argue that the people of the western world will never bow down to this disgraceful rule of law, but on the other hand, the rule of the gun is a powerful persuader.

To Be Stoned To Death

To Be Stoned To Death

By far the worst perpetrators are the jihad groups like the Taliban, who interpret Sharia to suit their own ends. They have been guilty of hundreds of atrocities during the time they held power in Afghanistan, and still do it today when they descend on villages, even though they are a hunted group. They have disfigured women with acid and beaten women half to death for so-called infractions of the strict laws that women must submit to in the Islamic world. A woman only needs to be accused of adultery for them to bury her up to the waist and have the villagers throw stones at her until she dies. Many husbands have used this excuse to get rid of unwanted wives.

Public Hanging

Public Hanging

Even in the state of Saudi Arabia there have been instances of public beheadings, and in others, criminals and homosexuals are hung from any convenient lamp-post or crane in full public view.

The plight of women in Arabic states is particularly distressing however, for they have no redress against whatever they are accused of. Women are, more often than not, chattels with less standing than the village dog, and are wholly dependent on the goodwill of their menfolk. A daughter has no choice but to obey to the letter what her father tells her and must marry whoever he chooses.

American Honour Killings

American Honour Killings

There have been numerous cases of young women, and even children, who have been slaughtered by their parents for doing things like talking to a boy without a chaperone. Even the UK and America have had cases where young women have been murdered for wearing inappropriate clothing i.e. western attire, or refusing to marry their father’s choice. In some instances a father will promise his daughter to someone to pay off a debt, such is the depths to which these people will stoop.

Until the women of the Arab world stand united and demand their rights as human beings, things will never change in this barbaric society, and the women in particular will continue to suffer.

    Well, there are thousands of such cases, if you google the news you find it happens everyday. It is a bit too convenient to say:It is against the Islam, when in fact, it is daily practice in Islamic states and the Islamic government are not punishing men for doing this, but allowing it.

    • Hi CV,
      Nice to have you back. You are perfectly right of course, it happens every day. If you read the Koran you will find that none of this is allowed. Passages in the Koran, and thereby Sharia, have been twisted by Imams and clerics depending on which group they support. The Koran also says it is forbidden to kill a fellow Muslim unless he is a criminal, but the insurgent groups do it daily. The book says women should cover themselves, i.e. not wear revealing attire, it does not say they must also cover their faces with a burka, but such is the interpretation of Muslims. The fault lies in certain peoples interpretation of what is written, and therein lies the problem. We should also not forget that much of the killing these days is inter-sect i.e. Sunni verses Shia. I hope this helps.
      Best Regards,

  2. How accurate is your information? From what I understand these things are NOT allowed in sharia. Killing ones child for disobeying is against Islam. If you want to criticize the cultures of certain middle east or south asian countries then sure, but I don’t think you should just assume these horrific acts are in line with sharia law.

    • Hi and welcome,
      These acts of barbarism are against the Koran, but Sharia is being used by insurgents like the Taliban to instill fear in the population because they rule by fear. It was against the Koran for them to mutilate Aesha, but their twisted interpretation allows it. It was against the Koran for them to shoot the young Pakistani girl in the head just because she wanted an education, but they did it anyway just to make a point. They certainly did not expect the national and international condemnation of this act. Everything in this post is readily available on the internet. Thanks for the comment.
      Best Regards,
      Roy.
