Violence

Saturday Night

Why is there is there violence all over the world? In every country it’s crazy, for all countries have attacks on humans and there is no stopping it. The police do their best to stop the violence but they are not having enough clout. In most countries there is attacks against the police and innocent civilians and I wonder if it will ever stop. The whole world seems to be going mad, for we have demonstrations on the southern continent of America and it will not stop. We have mass killings in Britain, especially in London and the police are not able to stop it. What is wrong with mankind these days.

When I was young there were very few killings, and perpetrators were hung by the neck. This has been outlawed through most of the world except America. But in America those on death row are getting less and less. We need to bring back hanging for killers, and the deaths of innocent people will get less. I hope when Britain leaves the EU that we will bring back hanging. Killers are sentenced to 10 years in Britain but are out in three to four years.

This will not stop the killings so long as this law is in place, and it will get worse. Violence on the streets is getting worse as the youth feel they can do this without a long sentence, even if the police catch them. Old folks are are robbed and killed even in their own homes, and not much is done about it. We need more police on the streets to stop this.

It is not only in England but all over the world as gangs do what they want. In Brazil and Venezuela there are mass demonstrations and people are getting killed. The police fire tear gas but this does not stop the violence. Since the 50’s we have become a more violent people and the governments are to blame. They rob the poor and middle class to make themselves richer. This has to stop.

In the future we will see anarchy as the violence gets bigger. We will see the governments all over the world ousted once and for all as the situation gets worse. I am glad I am 74 and not see this, for the young will have a difficult time in the future.

Demonstrations

Arrest Of A Suspect

We see demonstrations all over the world and it is getting worse. Why are people not happy with what they have? Governments are under pressure to change the way we live and give more money to the poor. It is up to people to make their lives better and get an education so that they can at least earn more money. But this is not an option for they want money without doing anything.

The poor people of the world must make themselves able to do work that will earn them more money, but that is too difficult for them. We all have brains and we should make the most of an education. Some cannot be bothered to study at school and turn to crime to get what they want. Education is the keystone for being successful in the world, but they prefer to rob shops and passers-by on the streets to get money, and very many of them spend it on drugs.

Violent attacks and killings are becoming more and frequent in England, and the police are overwhelmed by the number of those being killed on the streets of London and elsewhere. We are getting close to the number of killings in the United States as we see more and more every day.

All these killings are mostly by teenagers who try to get money from those they have murdered. Unless the police clamp down on such things it will get worse. Some of the killings are because of arguments between rivals, and why should they kill someone because they disagree with them. It is monstrous to consider murdering someone because they do not agree with them. Britain is getting more and more violent day by day and it has to stop.

We should be putting these killers in jail for a very long time but all they get is three or four years in prison. Prison does not change the mentality of these killers in such a short time.

Once we get out of the E.U. we should change our laws to be hard on them for a very long time. Bring back hanging will do the trick, and we will see the number of killings drop drastically. No-one wants to be hanged for killing someone on a street or in their own home. Hanging will change the whole of the United Kingdom, and we will see fewer and fewer murders on the streets of our towns and cities.

But first we have to get out of the European Union before we implement this punishment. Once we are free of the European Court of Human Rights and we introduce hanging other countries will follow suit.

The European Union is a farce in this respect for they have banned the death sentence all across Europe. This has led to murders and the only way to stop it is the death sentence. Murderers will be wary of not killing people for fear of the death sentence if they are caught and found guilty.

Once this law has been passed the people can live without fear of getting shot or knifed in their own homes or on the street. Britain will become a safer place as the number of killers dwindles for fear of the death sentence. We only have to hang one or two murderers for it to stop, for all killers will be afraid of what they face.

North And South Korea

Iran With Nuclear Capability?

Will It Come To This! We Hope Not!

After many years of conflict between North and South Korea we have reached an understanding between the two countries. They are now in talks to end the conflict, and it seems it is going well. Kim Jong-Un and his counterpart Moon Jae-In are talking about ending the rivalry between them. It is a momentous occasion that the two countries are talking.

The people in North Korea are ignorant  of the fact that these talks are taking place, but in South Korea it is being greeted with joy, as is the rest of the world. Trump has expressed his desire to talk with the North Korean leader sometime later this year, and we must wait and see how this develops.

Currently the talks between Moon Jae-In and Kim Jong-Un are going very well and we, hopefully, we will see the end of

tensions between the two countries. Kim Jong-Un has promised he will do away with all the nuclear weapons he has developed, and we must wait and see if this comes true.

Later this year Trump will have a meeting with Kim Jong-Un, and it is hoped this all goes well. For North Korea to get rid of its nuclear weapons will a milestone for the world, for Kim Jong-Un has already threatened America with a nuclear attack, and he has missiles that will reach the United States.

If this does not go well we could see a war between North Korea and the USA, and North Korea would be flattened. This will have a major effect on the rest of the world for the radioactivity will spread across the whole globe. This will have a devastating effect on peoples lives, and we may see the end of humanity on this planet due the spreading of the radioactivity.

Let us all hope that the meetings between South Korea, the USA and North Korea all go well.

Killers On The Streets Of London?

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Government, Justice, News, People's Rights, Police, Prison, Teen Violence with tags , , , , on 10/04/2018 by floroy1942

Killer On The Streets

In last few weeks London has become terrible with so many murders in a few short weeks. The Police don’t seem to do anything to stop these killers from roaming the streets and killing people, and it has to stop. We need more of them on the streets to combat this epidemic of bloodshed, and to arrest the killers and put them in jail for a long time.

The trouble is our justice system is not functioning properly, and killers get locked up for three or four years when they should spend the rest of their lives in prison.

Once Brexit is finalised we should change our justice system to put these killers away for a very long time, and we should bring back the death sentence. Currently the death sentence is banned by the European Union Court of Human Rights, but it should not be. How else are we to stop this circle of killing on the streets?

Once the hanging is introduced the rate of murder will drop like a stone, and we will see very few killers on the streets. Once they are captured they will go to trial, and if they are found guilty they will be hanged. The old justice system worked and we saw very few murderers on the streets for they knew they will be put to death if caught.

We have become too lenient with killers these days and that is why the rate of murder is steadily rising, for they have no fear of the justice system. The majority of them are young kids who see a chance to rob money from their victims or get into an argument with them. The number of young kids that carry knives is going through the roof for they are afraid of being attacked.

Once Brexit is completed we should cut down hard on these killers and sentence them to be hanged or spend a long time in prison. It is the only way to stop this cycle of violence on our streets.

Sex With Cows And Chopping Off A Penis

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Justice, Modern World, News, Police, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 02/02/2018 by floroy1942

I read today in the news of two interesting facts about humans. The first one is all about a man who had sex with cows. John Curno is charged with sexually abusing cows in a field. It would seem that he strolled around a herd of 150 cows and decided to have sex with them. He was seen by farmer’s wife Susan Howie with his trousers around his ankles and shoving his penis up the cows backside. I wonder what the cow thought of this?

He also thrust his arm up to the shoulder into the cows vagina and perform a sex act. This was seen by two sisters. After his third alleged act the sisters called the police. During his arrest the pensioner, who was wearing a woolly hat, a dark grey jumper and jogging bottoms, told police: “I’m not a violent person, I have a weakness with animals.”

Curno of North-west London was chased after he was seen having sex with a cow. He pulled up his trousers and underwear but not enough, and as he climbed over a stile he fell into the mud. Mrs Howie said: “He grabbed his trousers and boxers and he ran for the stile and he actually fell over the stile because his trousers fell down when he was trying to get over it.”

He was caught by the police and Curno was charged with public indecency twice between 1 August and 26th last year. During an interview with the police he said he liked to stroke cows but did not commit an act of indecency. He is awaiting sentencing.

A woman has been arrested for hacking off of her boyfriends penis. Zhanna Nurzhanova, 36 was reportedly outraged when her boyfriend made a complimentary comment and sent a picture of a good looking woman to her sister.

7eba02a69b95d82761d3f38ff1f17fa5

She is accused of giving her boyfriend a sleeping pill and waited for him to pass out at their home in the Kazakh capital of Astana. She then injected him with a local anaesthetic and cut off his penis. Nurzhanova then drove him to a hospital where he was looked at by doctors. Surgeons desperately tried to put his penis together but it was impossible. According to local reports, Nurzhanova faced unspecified charges and a sentence of up to six years in jail if she is convicted.

I think six years is far too lenient for someone who ruined a man’s life, for she should have got a lot longer.

You never know what people will do in this day and age.

Should We Bring Back The Death Penalty?

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Human Rights, Justice, News, People's Rights, Political Correctness, Prison with tags , , , , on 29/05/2017 by floroy1942

A Life Of Luxury

The number of murders being carried out these days has gone through the roof and the Law  is not dealing with it properly. When I was young murderers were sentenced to death by hanging and that insured they would never commit such a crime again. Nowadays, murderers are sentenced to little more than ten years and are released after three or four. Many have gone on to commit murder again.

There can be little doubt that with the interference of the European Human Rights Commision and our ‘home-grown Do-Gooders’ our justice system has become a disaster. Every day we hear of murders being committed and the law cannot handle it. Britain has become a nation of killers, and that is sad. People are not even safe in their own homes.

When we leave the European Union I hope that the government will do something to stop this disease once and for all. We need to get back to the laws of the 1940’s and 50’s if this country is ever to become peaceful. It is despicable that you cannot walk down a street in the evening in most towns and cities without being robbed, attacked, or murdered.

I wonder how the anti-death sentence people would feel if one of their family were to be killed? I think they would rapidly change their minds if it was someone dear to them. It is a sad fact that these people have come to rule the law system and made it impossible for our judges to give a proper sentence. Our legal system has become so soft that killers, rapists and thieves get away with their crimes, serving only a very short sentence that does nothing to dissuade them from committing more crimes.

It is also evident that the comforts of a prison sentence are hardly a dissuader for these people to ‘go straight’. In all prisons in Britain they have all the comforts of home with each cell having a TV, music centre, computer games and the like. This is not the right way to handle serious criminals, for the only thing they miss is their freedom. They should be made to work every day and have all their ‘toys’ taken away, leaving them with just a bed, washbasin, and toilet in the cells.

Naturally, this would cause a tremendous upset among the criminals and the Army should be brought in to control them for the prison guards could not handle it. Among the prison guards there are many who are in the service of the prisoners and allow them free reign in the prison. These people should be sacked and properly disciplined guards brought in.

If the death penalty is reintroduced for murder we can be sure that the number of killers would rapidly decrease, and people will be much safer on the streets and in their own homes. I just hope that Theresa May’s government will do the right thing, for if she does we will get back to a peaceful existence once again.

Israel – The Slow But Sure Land Grab.

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, European Union, Israel, Justice, Netanyahu, News, Palestine, United Nations with tags , , , , on 03/02/2017 by floroy1942

What would you say if your neighboring country slowly, bit by bit, started taking over your land and built settlements in your country? Naturally you would be outraged and start doing something about it. So why is the world not doing something about the gradual takeover of Palestinian land by Israel?

Ever since 1947 Israel has expanded its territory into Palestine by building settlements and towns on land that does not belong to them. The Palestinians have complained to the United Nations, and every major country in the world, but all complaints have fallen on deaf ears. If this keeps up, within a few years Palestine will no longer exist because it will have been taken over in its entirety by the Israelis.

In excess of 600,000 Jews live in about 140 settlements built since Israel annexed the West Bank and East Jerusalem after the 1967 war, all on Palestinian land. On Wednesday Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was moving ahead with plans to set up a new settlement on the West Bank ‘for the first time in more than two decades’.

The announcement came as Israeli police cleared protesters from the unauthorised settler outpost of Amona. Israel’s Supreme Court has ordered Amona to be dismantled because it was built on private Palestinian land. So why have they not done this before?

The United Nations has for years condemned the land grab by Israel, but they have taken no action to put a stop to it except to vocally condemn the actions of the Israeli government.

How would the American’s feel if Canada or Mexico began building settlements over the border and claiming it for themselves? You can bet your life there would be an uproar of protestation, and it might even get to the stage of military action.

No such thing is taking place in Israel and Palestine, for the Palestinian cries of protest have all fallen on deaf ears for years, thanks to the backing of the United States who are solidly behind Israel. Now with Trump in charge we may see a change in attitude by the United States.

 

The Shrinking Map Of Palestine

The Shrinking Map Of Palestine

When Israel went to war with the surrounding Arab states in 1967 and 1973 they won convincingly and claimed the Sinai desert as their own. Even when Palestinian fighters fought against Israel to try and save their land they were called terrorists and quickly defeated. Since that time the Israeli borders have pushed back steadily until today, Palestine has all but disappeared.

You can be pretty certain that the small areas still under Palestinian control will disappear in the next few years, and Palestine will be wiped from the map completely to become the State of Israel.

Don’t for one minute think that I am a Palestinian sympathiser for I am not, but this injustice has to have a voice somewhere.

Time For Reform In Our Prisons

Posted in America, Britain, England, Government Spending, Justice, Modern World, News, Police, Politics, Prison with tags , , , , on 17/12/2016 by floroy1942

I read with interest about the prison riot in HMP Birmingham England yesterday, and I was shocked that such a thing could still happen in our prisons. I have always thought that the British prison system is far too soft on those who commit crimes, especially murder and rape.

All The Comforts Of Home

All The Comforts Of Home

These days a killer will be sentenced to ten years and be released in three or four. Surely that is not a just sentence for someone who has murdered an innocent person. Not only that, but prisoners these days live in  better conditions than most of our poorer people. With a TV, Radio, disc player and many other luxuries in their cells, plus snooker tables and chess sets, all paid for by the taxpayer.  There can be little doubt that the ‘Do-Gooders’ in our society have turned prison into a holiday camp. Long gone are the days when you were locked in a cell with just the bare minimum like a bed, wash bowl and toilet. They are more like hotel rooms these days.

The riot in Birmingham lasted twelve hours and a significant amount of damage was done. Again, the taxpayer may well foot the bill for repairs. The trouble has been quoted as being the worst since the Strangeways jail riot in 1990. UK prisons chief Michael Spurr said there were “serious problems” in jails that would not be solved immediately. Justice Secretary Liz Truss said  the rioters would “face the full force of the law.” Now what did she mean by that? An extra three months added to their sentence? I cannot see much coming out of her statement to the Press.

The rioting was said to have involved up to 600 inmates with some severe damage to parts of the prison. Currently it is said that the company that runs the prison, G4S, will be made to foot the bill for repairs although I doubt that. A G4S spokesman said,  “Our teams have worked tirelessly throughout the night to assess the damage caused, start the process of clearing up and capture any evidence that could be used by West Midlands Police for any subsequent prosecutions.”

Mike Spurr

Mike Spurr

This is the third prison violence episode in six weeks following trouble at Lewes and Bedford, and the authorities are worried that it could spread to other prisons in the country. Michael Spurr, who is chief executive of the National Offender Management Service Agency, said overcrowding, reduced staffing and drugs had put pressure on prisons.

In my view the authorities should draft in many more wardens to keep control, and ensure that the prisons are so constructed that it will be impossible for inmates to gather in large numbers. When such an occurrence takes place there should be sufficient wardens to quell the violence, using water cannons and tear gas if necessary. Prisoners need to have all their ‘goodies’ taken away so that they really know the meaning of punishment.

An Easy Time In Prison

An Easy Time In Prison

To allow a murderer or child rapist out of prison within three or four years should be done away with and they should serve a very long time in prison under a harsh regime. Today, killers etc. think nothing of it if they are caught, because they know they will be out in just a few years, and on top of that, have an easy time in prison.

There can be little doubt that the Justice System in Britain has gone soft on criminals, and for that we are all paying the price.

Theresa May On The Right Track

Anjam Choudrey Message To All Non-Muslims

Anjam Choudrey Message To All Non-Muslims

For years radicals have been spreading their poison in jails trying to convert British prisoners to join their jihad, and in many cases they have been successful. Prisoners who don’t wish to participate in jihad-ism live in fear for their lives from the Muslim radicals. Even the prison staff themselves are afraid to challenge them for fear of being labelled racist.

The Queen? My Goodness

The Queen? My Goodness

Now, after the arrest of Anjam Choudrey Theresa May has come up with a plan to separate these radicals and isolate them from the rest of the inmates. She is also banning radical literature in prisons. Not before time! It is good to see that our new Prime Minister is taking the necessary steps to stop this.

Her plan is for all extremists to be housed in a separate section of the prison where they can have no contact with the mainstream prisoners. We must wait and see how far this goes, and how effective it is.

Another necessary measure she is taking is to ban Islamic hate preachers from Mosques and Universities. This is an action that David Cameron should have taken years ago, for many of the bombers who have killed innocent people have been radicalized by hate preachers in these places.

Choudrey

Uh Huh!

Ideological young Muslim men are an easy target for the hate preachers, who over the years have persuaded many to go to Syria to fight for ISIS. The well known ‘Underwear’ Bomber was radicalized in a University in London by a visiting radical Muslim priest, and he is just one example.

There can be little doubt that when the traitor Tony Blair opened the doors of our country wide to any and all immigrants he put this country in great danger. I have to say that it surprises me that this man is still walking around free.

The Message To America!

The Message To America!

Radicalization is the biggest threat Britain has faced since the Second World War, and its a long way from being over yet. Muslims are so entrenched in their laws and way of life that they will never assimilate into our society. The same goes for the rest of the European nations.

At this point I would like to reiterate, as I have done in past blogs, that I am not against the Muslim faith provided they assimilate into our society, respect our Laws, and learn our language. Sadly they have done none of this.

They are brainwashed from childhood in the ways of Allah and have no freedom of choice. If they try to leave the Islamic faith they are put to death. Islam is the most dictatorial religion on the planet and has remained unchanged for two thousand years, such is the control of the Imams. I am not saying that all Imams are bad, not by a long way, but those who are wield the big stick.

bin Laden - Dead!

bin Laden – Dead!

This whole debacle began when bin Laden organized the attack on 9/11 which started a wave of bombings and attacks world-wide. To date we have Muslim extremists in 165 countries around the world although all are not as active as ISIS. There have been attacks in countries as far away as China, Thailand, Malaysia, Pakistan, Africa, and of course not forgetting Europe. We in Europe have not seen the full force of the jihadist rage as yet, for attacks have been relatively small in number compared with other nations, but you can be sure they will get worse.

The major problems will come in twenty or thirty years time when they get close to outnumbering us due to their high birthrate. This is one of the reasons why we have to put a stop to this Jihad idea now, once and for all.

If we leave it too late there will blood on the streets as predicted by Enoch Powell.

Why Is Everyone So Violent Today?

Posted in America, Britain, Child Discipline, England, European Union, Football, Justice, News, Parenting, Teen Violence with tags , , , , on 11/07/2016 by floroy1942

Apart from previous wars, the general public have never been as excessively violent as they are today. I wonder why? What is it that drives people at, for example, football matches to become so angry that we see running street battles and fans attacking each other or the police in the stadium? Something has changed in the psyche of many people today that I just fail to understand.

Fan Violence

Fan Violence

When I was young fans always respected each other, and just because their side lost didn’t mean that they would turn to violence against those who supported the winners. And yet today we hardly see a football match that doesn’t turn to fighting among fans, especially at international matches.

We have seen violent demonstrations in America where the blacks are having a go at the police because they feel that they are hard done by, and yes, I fully realize that there have been three killings of Black people in dubious circumstances in recent days. But instead of having a peaceful demonstration there is always someone who wants to turn it into a violent confrontation with the police.

We have seen the same thing in France, Germany and other European countries for a variety of reasons ranging from football to political differences. Today in Britain street violence, especially between teenagers particularly on a Friday and Saturday night in many towns and cities across the U.K., has risen out of all proportion, Why?

In my view it is because most parents do not have any control over their offspring anymore. When I was growing up my mother was always at home and always there when I needed her, but that is not true today. Most parents see their children for maybe two or three hours a day because they are both working. As a consequence, there is nobody at home to make sure the children are brought up properly, and by that I mean, being respectful of others and being honest. This makes them ‘loose cannons’ whenever they have to interact with others.

Young Murderer Kills Teacher

Young Murderer Kills Teacher

In Britain in particular we have children and teenagers who will murder an old person for the few pounds they have in their pocket, and you can’t deny this for it has happened time and again. In a previous post I relayed the news item that a young man had stolen the wallet from an accident victim who lay badly injured and then walked away and left him on the street. In my youth that would never have happened, for the person concerned would have done everything to help and not just stolen the money and walked away. Oh how times have changed!

To me it seems that we have entered an age where many people put themselves first and to hell with everyone else. Of course I do not mean those of us who still care and behave properly. Naturally I am not saying that everyone is like this, and not everyone would get into a fight because their team lost, but the numbers are growing with our youth and young people. In maybe ten years time I can see a period where complete anarchy reigns across many countries in the world, for it takes very little to get some people’s blood boiling and they take to violence.

Riots In Venezuela 2014

Riots In Venezuela 2014

The history of riots tells us that things have got much worse in the twentieth Century than they ever were before. For example, from 1900 until 1920 there were thirty riots across the entire world. From 2001 to 2010 there were 113 riots across the world, and from 2011 until now we have seen 288. It is good to remember that these are riots by the people and not just incidents at football stadiums, for many got killed during these confrontations.

Life Of Luxery

Life Of Luxury

Part of the problem is that the legal system in many countries is failing. I can only talk about Britain for that is my country, but the justice system is very weak in Britain because of the continued interference of the European Human Rights Council. It has weakened our laws to the extent that a stay in jail for a couple of years for murder is like staying at a holiday camp.

This is partly the reason why many do not fear going to jail for acts of murder, rape or just sheer brutality. In most cases those involved in street fights or at football matches couldn’t give a damn, for they know they will most likely be told in court not to misbehave anymore and are let off with a warning.

Whichever way you look at it, and whatever country you reside in, general violence is becoming more of a daily thing and it makes me wonder where it will all end.

Pakistan – The Devil’s Playground

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Equality, Justice, Muslim, News, Pakistan, Religion, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 05/07/2016 by floroy1942

I was shocked to read in today’s news about the brutal death of a young girl who married against her mother’s wishes, and was brutally murdered because of it. The girl, eighteen-year-old Zeenat was choked by her mother, and while still alive, burnt to death with kerosene. After this despicable act her mother, Parveen Rafiq screamed from her rooftop, “I have killed my daughter. I have saved my honor. She will never shame me again.”

A Victim Of Sharia

A Victim Of Sharia

The whole saga began when Zeenat decided to marry her childhood sweetheart and not a man whom her mother had chosen in a so-called ‘arranged marriage’, a member of their own social caste, the Rajput. Zeenat had her heart set on a childhood friend, a 20-year-old motorcycle mechanic named Hassan Khan who lived nearby in their crowded Lahore shantytown. Her death on June 8 was the latest in a series of increasingly gruesome “honour” killings in Pakistan, which has one of the highest rates of such killings in the world.

After they married Zeenat went to live with Hassan and his family, but her mother and uncle came to the door many times begging her to come home at least for a few days because they forgave her. Her mother wanted to arrange a proper marriage for the pair to dispel the idea held by the neighbours that she had eloped. She eventually agreed, but on the fourth day was killed by her mother in the aforementioned despicable way.

Neighbours outside Rafiq’s home all agreed that the mother was driven to kill Zeenat, and she should go free. “Daughters are duty-bound to maintain the honor of the family,” said Muneeba Bibi. “It’s better to have no children than to have a daughter who brings you shame. Zeenat’s killing was a good lesson for all the girls here to protect the family honour,” she said.

Zeenat’s mother has been arrested as police and prosecutors found a way around the forgiveness loophole. Rafiq and one of her sons suspected of helping in Zeenat’s killing have been detained and face charges under the anti-terrorism law, which defines any act that causes general panic as terrorism. We will have to wait and see how that goes in court.

A Girl Who Assisted Her Friend To Get Married

A Girl Who Assisted Her Friend To Get Married

In another such case a mother in Abbottabad slit the throat of her pregnant 22 year-old daughter who married a man she loved. The victim’s girlfriend who helped her, was systematically tortured and then injected with poison. After that she was strapped into the seat of a car which was then set alight. She died in absolute agony.  The council of local elders, ordered her killing as a message to others.

Last year, 1,096 women and 88 men were killed in “honour” crimes in Pakistan, according to the independent Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. The fact of the matter is that the numbers are most likely far higher, as not all get reported. Those who kill for “honour” are almost never punished in Pakistan.

Both Stabbed As Torture Before Being Killed.

Both Stabbed As Torture Before Being Killed.

This country has the highest rate of honour crimes in the world, and the sad thing is, the perpetrators of these killings are very seldom punished for their crimes. It’s all to do with the savage Sharia Law that allows such actions. The law, based on Islamic Shariah allows the family of a victim to forgive a killer, and in these cases the killers are almost always family. So other relatives give their forgiveness, unwilling to see loved ones jailed.

It is a fact that more than 70 percent of Pakistan’s 180 million people are under 30, and many are challenging these traditions to an unprecedented degree. Marvi Sermid, a women’s rights activist said, “The old order of misogyny and extremism is falling apart, is really crumbling.” The campaign has been assisted by women going to school and working outside the home, and social media has helped women raise their voices.

The government proposed a law aimed at protecting women against violence, but in May the council put forward an alternative allowing men to “lightly beat” their wives. On TV talk shows, guests denounced the council as misogynist and out of touch. Some lawmakers called for it to be disbanded.

I have a feeling that this argument will rage on for a very long time, for although the younger generation in Pakistan seem to be more enlightened, the old are not, and stick fast to their ancient traditions.

To me these people are still living in the stone age and it all has to do with the Muslim Sharia Law. It is not the same in all Muslim countries, but we still get to hear about stoning to death, the chopping off of a thief’s hand and hangings in the street.

By comparison I will not say that our western justice system is better, for many killers and thieves get ridiculously short sentences, and have an easy time of it in prison in many countries. But it is better than the sheer savagery of Sharia Law.

Will it ever change, I doubt it!

Roy.
