How Barbaric Can You Get!

The Message

The Message

I just read a news piece about an eighteen-year-old Pakistani girl who was burned to death by her mother for marrying a man she loved. Just another example of the so-called ‘Honour Killings’ which take place in Pakistan on a regular basis. From the report it seems that the mother strangled her and set her alight even though she was still alive. Its hard to imagine the pain this young girl must have gone through before she died.

The Aftermath

The Aftermath

When the case came to court the mother was sentenced to death for this outrageous crime, a decision I agree with totally. The woman confessed to killing her 18-year-old daughter, Zeenat Rafiq for “bringing shame on the family”. None of her family claimed her body for burial, and it was left to the in-laws to perform the burial ceremony.

It has for a long time been the tradition in Muslim lands like Pakistan for the daughter to marry a man who is chosen by the parents. This sometimes happens with children as young a seven or eight and they have no say in it. The marriage can be for a number of reasons, like paying a debt to the man or family of the husband, or simply to cement ties with the family of the groom.

Whatever you may think of this practice, to me it is barbaric, but it is an unwritten law among some societies. The Pakistani government have tried to stop this practice but it still goes on because it is tradition among some sectors of Pakistani society. Numerous honour killings have been carried out in Pakistan, where mainly girls face the wrath of family members for marrying a man of their choice.

A Victim

A Victim

In July 2016, Pakistani social media celebrity Qandeel Baloch was allegedly strangled to death by her brother in the province of Punjab. In the same month, British woman Samia Shahid was allegedly killed by her father and her former husband after she chose to divorce him and marry another man. In Pakistan alone there are over a thousand such honour killings a year, and nine times out of ten no-one is punished.

In accordance with tradition the killers can be ‘forgiven’ by the victim’s family and no further action is taken by the authorities. New legislation was passed by the government in October 2016, but many ignore it for they stick with tradition. The new law provides for a mandatory prison sentence of 25 years to anyone convicted of killing for the sake of family honour, and no longer allows family members to legally pardon perpetrators. The law permits forgiveness only of an “honour” killer who is sentenced to death; if the killer is forgiven, he would still have to serve 25 years in jail.

In my view it just goes to show how backward these people are to have such a tradition. In this day and age you would think that such a practice would be a thing of the past, but it is not.

The Muslim religion is well-known throughout the world for its barbarity, like chopping off the hands of thieves, stoning to death of women and executions with a sword. There can be little doubt that Islam is the most barbaric religion on the planet. Will it ever end? I doubt it for it is so ingrained in their culture.

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. 

Message Of The Young

Message Of The Young

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!

Breast Ironing – The Barbaric Torture Of Young Girls

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, Health, Immigrants, News, Parenting, Torture with tags , , , , on 10/04/2016 by floroy1942

I have come to the conclusion that in many countries some people are still barbaric beyond description. It is unbelievable that in this day and age countries still hold on to torture as a way of life. I wrote some time ago about the genital mutilation of young girls by Muslim families, but now I discovered that there are other forms of torture that are traditional.

Breast Ironing Using A Hot Rock

Breast Ironing Using A Hot Rock

One of these is breast ironing which is prevalent in some African countries and is carried out by immigrants in Britain today. The general idea is to prevent the natural growth of breasts in young girls, and involves them having their breasts beaten, burnt and massaged in order to stop them developing.

The reason for this is to make young girls and women less attractive to the opposite sex so they can concentrate on school work. Really, of all the excuses I have ever heard this must be one of the most ridiculous.

One young woman said, “They put a spatula on the fire and then they press it on the breast, and yes, it hurts. Then it goes weak, it’s like melting, fat melting and you can feel the breast going back.” Once this is completed they often have their breasts bound tightly to prevent any further growth.

All this torture just so they can concentrate on their school lessons, and prevent them being attractive to young boys? What sort of animals are these people?

Tightly Bound To Prevent Natural Growth

Tightly Bound To Prevent Natural Growth

Experts are of the opinion that such torture can lead to cysts, abscesses, and even breast cancer. Geraldine Yenwo, the founder of Came Women and Girls Development Organisation said, “A lot of them have inverted nipples, they’re not able to breastfeed their children. Emotionally and psychologically, your self-esteem is very badly affected. Physically, some of them have one large and one flattened breast.”

Conservative MP Jake Berry is requesting the government make such actions illegal, and so it should be. Those responsible for such acts should be locked away for a very long time, for this type of torture does not belong in the modern age, much the same as genital mutilation.

What Can Often Be The End Result

What Can Often Be The End Result

I know that there are many backward civilizations in the world, but to intentionally mutilate your children seems to me beyond bizarre, and it makes you wonder why this sort of tradition ever became ‘normal’ with some people.

Islam Inhumane – How Is That Possible?

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, Children, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, News, Pakistan, Religion, Sharia Law with tags , , , , on 15/01/2016 by floroy1942

I read a rather disturbing account today of a young Pakistani boy who cut off his own hand because he mistakenly thought he had blasphemed.

Brainwashed From Birth

Brainwashed From Birth

During a gathering at the local mosque the preacher told his congregation that all followers should say their prayers. He then asked his flock who had stopped praying, and the boy Mohammad Anwar, 15, raised his hand by mistake after apparently mis-hearing the question.

The crowd immediately accused him of blasphemy so he ran home and cut off his own hand, placed it on a plate and presented it to the cleric as penance for his supposed sin. It is reported that his parents were very proud of what their son had done to show penance, and he was hailed as a hero by the villagers.

Because he made a silly mistake, he must now live the rest of his life with only one hand, and all because of the inhumane blasphemy laws in Islam. Thank God Christianity is not so barbaric.

A Thief Loses A Hand

A Thief Loses A Hand

Even though it was a mistake, he could well be seen as a criminal under Islamic Law by strangers for the rest of his life, for as we all know, the punishment for a thief is to lose a hand. With this one rash act he could well have destroyed his chances of a normal life.

If Europeans lived under Islamic Law, about 97% of the population would be going through life with only one hand that is for sure. Thankfully we do not have Sharia Law here, well, not everywhere that is! But who is to say it is not coming!

The Return Of The Neanderthal – Kid ‘Cage Fights’!

Posted in Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, Insanity, Modern World, Parenting, Teen Violence, Teens, UK, USA with tags , , , , , on 23/09/2011 by floroy1942

I was to say the least, disgusted at the news that two children, one eight, and one nine, took part in a so-called Cage Fight in Preston Lancashire, England. The fight took place in front of a baying crowd of some 200 members of the Greenlands Labour Club on 10th September.

The Two Boys Fighting In A Cage

A video of the event was posted on-line, which led to many complaints, and shock among people who saw it. The police were notified, but have said today they could take no action because no laws had been broken. According to the latest reports, the local council will be looking into the matter, to decide if any of the licensing laws pertaining to the club had been abused.

The father of one of the boys said in an interview that he thought there was nothing wrong with it, and his son wanted to do it. When asked how he felt about it, the child answered; “it was exciting” and “it was fun”! The whole idea has been defended by those involved “because it got rid of aggression in young boys”. I have to ask what they think such an experience will do to their development, especially if it becomes a regular thing? It is intended by the organizers to hold another such event in about a months time.

No Protection

Many institutions, like The British Medical Association commented on the fact that neither boy wore any protective clothing like head protectors. Even the British Cage Fighting Association said it was totally against children participating in such a “sport”.

Video of boys fighting:

A Battered And Bruised Cage Fighter

To be honest, I fail to see how cage fighting in any form can be called a sport! It is, to say the least, barbaric, cruel, and totally out of keeping with today’s ‘civilized’ world. I just cannot see the attraction of watching two grown men, let alone children, beat the hell out of each other in a cage. The fight between the two children was toned down, according to the organizers, for no punching or kicking was allowed. When two men get in the cage however, anything goes!

Cobra/Mongoose Fight To The Death

We put fighting dogs and cockerels in a small space and make them fight, and in places like India they put a cobra and mongoose together, which are of course natural enemies, but surely we should not do the same with human beings, especially children as young as eight! But what disturbs me almost as much, is the blood lust of those watching cage fights. According to reports, these same bloodthirsty individuals were getting just as excited at the spectacle of two children fighting, one of whom ended up in tears!

I am sorry, but it not the kind of spectacle I would expect to see today. We are supposed to have left this kind of activity behind in the Colosseum of Ancient Rome.

What a Muslim Will Do For Honour! (You may find this Blog disturbing)

Posted in Arab, Britain, England, Human Rights, Insanity, Islamic Revolution, Justice, Muslim, Palestine, Torture, UK, UN, United Nations with tags , , , , , , , on 06/02/2010 by floroy1942

Is the honour of any family worth brutally killing one of their own children? Muslims seem to think so. Honour killings have once again hit the headlines when a man, his wife, and the girl’s grandfather buried their sixteen-year-old daughter alive in south eastern Turkey. Her crime; talking to boys! Following a tip-off, the police found her body buried under a chicken pen in a two metre deep hole. She was in a sitting position with her hands bound, and an autopsy found large amounts of dirt in her lungs and stomach proving she was alive and conscious when she was buried. Her father had previously told friends that he was unhappy she was talking to boys. According to reports, it was decided at a family ‘council meeting’ that she had to die for staining the families honour. It is just one such ‘honour’ killing from an average of two hundred that take place in Turkey, and which account for approximately half of the murders there every year.

A similar case happened in Palestine in September 2008 when a seventy-four-year-old man buried his divorced daughter alive after tying her up and gagging her. A Jordanian, who’s seventeen-year-old daughter was abducted and raped in 2008, finally shot her dead in 2009 because he suspected she had been having a relationship with one of the kidnappers. Even Britain has had its share of such killings. In February 2007 a Muslim father, outraged by his wife and three children adopting western style clothing poured petrol over them while they slept and set them alight. They burned to death!

Honour Killing

Also in Britain in 2006, a Pakistani father forced his two daughters, aged two and four, to watch as he and his cousin carried out an honour killing on his sister who was in love with a man he did not consider appropriate. She had her throat cut three times and was stabbed repeatedly as she lay on the floor.

Official estimates put the number of honour killings at five thousand a year world wide and they take place in Muslim countries like Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Syria, Pakistan and Yemen apart from Turkey. The victims are not always girls, sometimes boys are killed too. Many times the ‘restoring of the family honour’ does not end in death for women since some countries governments, like Turkey, have started to clamp down on the practice. Nowadays, a families honour can be restored by setting fire to the face or burning it with acid to ensure lifelong disfigurement. It is an inescapable fact that the perpetrators of these ‘honour killings’ are seldom brought to justice for the simple reason it is necessary for the families honour.

For Family Honour

This killing and maiming is looked upon by the rest of the village or community of the family concerned with approval, as was amply demonstrated by what happened to a fifteen-year-old girl in Palestine. She was seen chatting to a boy without a male chaperone and as a result a marriage was quickly arranged. She had a child at sixteen and a year later she could not stand the bogus marriage any more and left. In July 1999 her family caught up with her and she was approached by her brother who convinced her to return to her village because everything had been forgiven. As she exited the vehicle in the village square her brother knifed her repeatedly in front of a huge crowd that started to cheer and shout encouragement because they saw the stain had finally been lifted from the family.

What is the reason for such brutality? According to reports there are three main reasons why such things happen: (a) Not respecting the Muslim dress code (b) wishing to marry your own choice of partner or trying to get out of an arranged marriage (c) engaging in certain sexual acts.

Official figures for 2002 in Pakistan for example cite 245 women and 137 men as being the victims of honour killings. Many are killed for having relationships outside their community or religion, but for women in particular the dangers are greater. If a daughter is thought to have stained the family honour for any reason, her own siblings may well demand her death to purify the family name, for if they do not, they may not find a husband.

To Be Stoned for Adultery

This is a side of Islam they would not like us ‘infidels’ to know about. Muslims can make as many excuses as they like but they will never convince me that Islam is not a barbaric religion. The strange thing is, the Koran preaches love, forgiveness and peace, but there is little of that in the current fanatical world of Islam. It is not my wish to insult Muslims, or their faith, and I am well aware that not all Muslims agree with such things, but these are proven facts, and you will not find another religion on the planet that is so cruel. So for me, the facts speak for themselves and each must draw their own conclusions.

May your God be more merciful than your family.

Roy.
