Child Abuse – The Scourge Of Our Times

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, David Cameron, European Union, Extradition, Immigrants, News, Religion, Teens with tags , , , , on 05/03/2015 by floroy1942

Is it mere coincidence that along with the influx of so many Muslim immigrants the rate of child abuse and rape has risen beyond anything previously ever known in our history?  I think not!

Tony Blair certainly did irreparable harm to this country in more ways than one when he introduced his ‘Multi-Cultural’ Britain policy. Now young women, girls as young as eleven, and even boys are being systematically snatched, raped and trafficked by these people.

Coercion Of The Worst Kind

Coercion Of The Worst Kind

One young girl told of being doused in petrol and the gang threatened to set her alight if she told anyone what was happening. Others were made to watch as other girls were raped by several men and told they would be next if they talked.

In Rotherham two fathers actually tracked down a Muslim gang who were abusing their daughters, and when they tried to rescue them were promptly arrested by the Police.

Fancy Going To A Party Girls? – A Muslim Pick-up.

Experts say  that as many as a million children are sexually abused every day in the U.K. and yet in most cases they are either too scared to report it, or when they do, are not believed by the authorities. Local councils, Social Services and the Police are all guilty of not doing enough to combat this tragic crime.

One of the worst areas in Britain is Rotherham in South Yorkshire where this crime is rampant. At least 1,400 children were sexually exploited in Rotherham by gangs of men who were predominantly of Pakistani origin between 1997 and 2013. Oxford has also hit the headlines when a serious case review into abuse of children found as many as 373 children may have been the victims of sexual grooming in the county over the past 16 years.

Girls as young as eleven have been abducted by these gangs who then rape them, often many times, and then pass them on to other gangs. That the people doing this are Muslims can be in little doubt because rape is allowed under the Qu’ran, despite what some Muslims will tell you to the contrary.

The Qu’ran states: Qur’an 23:1-6—The Believers must (eventually) win through—those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess—for (in their case) they are free from blame. This means in effect that any female who is ‘captured’ by a Muslim is open to such abuse and it is allowed.

A Victim

Another verse says: Qur’an 70:22-30—Not so those devoted to Prayer—those who remain steadfast to their prayer; and those in whose wealth is a recognized right for the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); and those who hold to the truth of the Day Of Judgement; and those who fear the displeasure of their Lord—for their Lord’s displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquillity—and those who guard their chastity, except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess—for (then) they are not to be blamed. 

It is common knowledge that Muslims feel free under their religion to groom young women and children in their own countries, so why should it be any different here, especially when our government and law enforcement agencies turn a blind eye because of Tony Blair’s Racism Laws.

Rape Gang Members

As The Qu’ran says, there is nothing in Muslim Law to stop these creatures from ‘capturing’ a girl, or boy, and raping them at their leisure. All this is far removed from the laws of any western nation, but few people in government, local councils or the Police seem to appreciate this. Everyone has turned a blind eye to it because they could be called racist.

What on earth has gotten into these agencies that they can just sit on their hands while young British children and girls are systematically snatched from the pavement and made to suffer this horrendous torture? Have we, the British people lost our humanity completely in the name of racism!

Hmmm - Perhaps I should Have Done Something Earlier!

Hmmm – Perhaps I should Have Done Something Earlier!

FINALLY, Cameron has got off his backside and is now introducing new laws to punish those who ignore such events. This will cover Social Services, Councils, Teachers and the Police who fail to protect the lives of children, and its not before time. Anyone who fails in their duty could face up to five years in prison.

In an interview the Prime Minister said, “Young girls – and they are young girls – being abused over and over again on an industrial scale, being raped, being passed from one bunch of perpetrators to another bunch of perpetrators. All the while this has happened with too many organisations and too many people walking on by (Yes –  including the government). We have got to really resolve that this stops here, it doesn’t happen again and we recognise abuse for what it is.” Brave words Mr. Cameron, but why didn’t you say this years ago.

The Shame Of Political Correctness

The Shame Of Political Correctness

It is a fact that the previous Labour Government knew all about this problem when it started under their rule, but chose to ignore it so as not to appear racist. The Labour Party has many such failures in its portfolio but because election time is near they are all kept secret or brushed under the carpet.

I have often commented that the last period of Labour rule under Blair and Brown is without doubt the darkest in the history of Britain. No-one in the entire history of this nation has done so much damage. The sad thing is, there are still idiots in the country who want to elect them to power at the next election. Talk about the blind leading the blind!

Anyway, I digress. Without doubt it is the responsibility of the government to take such measures as necessary to stamp out this vile and evil trade of abuse and trafficking by immigrants. The Police need to be mobilised to track down and arrest anyone involved in this ‘business’, for this is what it has become.

Deportation - The Only Answer!

Deportation – The Only Answer!

The government and Justice Department must ensure that after a stiff prison sentence they have their passports revoked, are deported along with their families, and NEVER allowed back in the country. But, just as important, all relevant information must be shared with every other European Union country so these people can never step foot in Europe again.

It would not be satisfactory for these people to be deported from Britain and be able to claim French, Dutch or Belgian citizenship for example, for if they gain citizenship of say Holland, they can return as Dutch citizens.

Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil  - All In The Name Of Our Racist Laws

Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil – All In The Name Of Our Racist Laws

In my view this must become a top priority for the law enforcement agencies and must not take a year or two to complete, but be finished within the shortest possible time. I am very sure that many of the participants in this vile trade are already known to the Police and can be arrested within a very short time. We have to show these thugs that Britain will not stand for such treatment of our girls and women, for this is still a Christian country and is not yet under Muslim Law!

The Farce That Is Human Rights Watch

Posted in Afghanistan, Al Quada, America, Children, Human Rights, Insurgents, News, Taliban, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 26/12/2014 by floroy1942

The events in Pakistan last week have convinced me that Human Rights Watch (HRW) are a bunch of sanctimonious idiots, and not for the first time. Just about everyone knows of the tragic terrorist attack on a school in Peshawar in which 149 were killed, including 132 children, and now it seems these idiots are siding with the militants.

In This Case That's All They Are Good For!

In This Case That’s All They Are Good For!

Why do I say that? Well, Human Rights Watch have strongly protested the decision by the Pakistan government to end the suspension of hanging insurgents who have been found guilty of terrorist offences.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif

Last Friday the death sentence of two militants found guilty of terrorism offences in 2003 and 2009 were carried out on orders of the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif who stated that the death sentence, suspended in 2008, would be reinstated. This was in reaction to the horrific killings in Peshawar.

The two terrorist who were hanged last Friday in Punjab Province were Arshad Mehmood, found guilty of being involved in the 2003 assassination attempt on former military ruler General Pervez Musharraf, and Aqil, who was convicted of taking part in an attack on the army headquarters in Rawalpindi in 2009.

The Taliban Killers Just Walked In And Opened Fire On The Gathered Children - 142 Died

The Taliban Killers Just Walked In And Opened Fire On The Gathered Children – 142 Died

Human Rights Watch launched a world-wide protest at the hanging of these two terrorists, calling them  “a craven politicized reaction to the Peshawar killings”, and demanded that no further hangings be carried out.

In a statement the group said, “Pakistan’s government has chosen to indulge in vengeful blood-lust instead of finding and prosecuting those responsible for the horrific Peshawar attack.” This begs the question, when the Pakistan Authorities do find this group of merciless killers and condemn them to death, will the HRW contest their execution as well?

Even SADISTIC Child Killers Amnesty?????

Even SADISTIC Child Killers Amnesty?????

Amnesty International has also jumped on the bandwagon, releasing the following statement: “This is a cynical reaction from the government. It masks a failure to deal with the core issue highlighted by the Peshawar attack, namely the lack of effective protection for civilians in north-west Pakistan.”

Even the United Nations has contested the deaths by saying, “the death penalty has no measurable deterrent effect on levels of insurgent and terrorist violence” and “may even be counter-productive”. “No measurable deterrent”? There’s one thing for sure, neither of them will be committing terrorist offences again!

Islamabad Pirison

Islamabad Prison

Security has been stepped up at all prisons holding militants to prevent an attack to free the thousands of terrorists held in them, for it would not be beyond the realms of possibility that the insurgent groups would make an attempt to free their compatriots.

I am afraid that I agree with the Pakistan governments position in that anyone convicted on terror-related charges should receive the death sentence.  But I would go a step further. Knowing the Islamic fear of pigs, I would cover these people in pig’s blood before hanging them. This means in the Islamic faith that they will not go to heaven, and therefore not get their 72 virgins. That should scare the crap out of them!

Victims from The School

Victims from The School

The one thing I fail to understand is the attitude of groups like HRW and Amnesty International. These do-gooders are always mouthing off at any hint of true justice for perpetrators, but I wonder how they would feel if their children were amongst the dead in Peshawar, or the same thing happened in their home town?

It seems to me that these protest people live in ‘cloud cuckoo’ land, and have failed to recognize the true brutality of these Islamic terrorists. We live in an age where life means nothing to these people who are so bent on sowing death and destruction wherever they can, all in the name of Islam.

Clear How Parents Feel!

Clear How Parents Feel!

I wonder what they would have to say if some of the I.S. militants were to be caught and brought before the court. Remember, these people have beheaded hundreds of innocent civilians in Iraq and Syria! Perhaps HRW, Amnesty and the UN would rather they were imprisoned in a nice cosy cell with waiter service, a TV, game station and library?

It is not until sad people like these are on the receiving end of terrorist brutality that they realize what the world is fighting against. If these people object to the death sentence for such atrocities, the courts could always assign these rabid mongrels to be looked after and cared for by these idiots who are against the death sentence. I would love to see how long their ‘humanity’ would last with a terrorist living in their house, raping their wife and children.

Bin Laden Hideout

Bin Laden Hideout

I must say that to a great extent Pakistan has brought this atrocity on itself, for many members of the government, especially the Intelligence Service, have in my view been in collaboration with the Taliban all along. How else could Bin Laden have lived within a mile of a military base for several years without being caught?

Taliban Strongholds

Taliban Strongholds

Even when the government ordered the troops into the North West Provinces a couple of years ago they did not go all the way to the border and root these terrorists out. No, they stopped before the job was completed and the whole episode was a waste of effort. The government, instead of going all the way and wiping these criminals out, have since tried to appease them for fear they will attack and take over the country.

Where this entire scenario will end, and when, is anybody’s guess. Of one thing you can be sure, many more thousands will die before this sad episode in man’s history is over.

A Sick Truth of Modern Britain

Posted in Al Quada, Benefits, Britain, England, Government Spending, Immigrants, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Terrorism, UK with tags , , , on 07/06/2013 by floroy1942

Would you believe that the UK Social Welfare System is funding terrorism? Neither would I, but if a report from the Wall Street Journal is anything like the truth, and it seems to be,  the government need to wake up – and quickly!

The WSJ reported that Anjem Choudary, a British-Pakistani receiving £25,000 a year from Social Security, preaches terrorism to his followers, and tells them to take their benefits to fund the jihad. Choudrey is a prominent hate-preacher well known in the UK, and was caught on camera recently praising ‘jihad-seekers’ allowance.’ As he explained to his followers, “The normal situation, really, is to take money from the kafir” (an insult for non-Muslims). “Allahu akbar. We take the money.”

Choudrey is well known as a hater of democracy, liberalism and secularism, and openly demands Sharia Law in the UK. There has to be something drastically wrong with the system for it to support such an’ enemy of the state’. Why do the British tax payers have to support someone who so openly hates Britain and all it stands for?  It is long past due this man had all his benefits stopped, was put on a plane and deported back to Pakistan, or anywhere else that will take him.

The British are extremely tolerant by nature, but this surely goes beyond the pale, especially when you consider that, as the WSJ reports, a British soldier gets a mere £16,000 a year starting salary! £9,000 a year less than this parasite! According to the WSJ “if the reported figure is anywhere near accurate, it would surely be the first time in human history that a society has paid its opponents better than it pays its own“.

He is by far not the only jihadist who lives off the backs of the British tax payer, there are other well known ones like the two Abu’s, Qatada and Hamsa, who have received millions of tax payer money for more than ten years in defence costs against continued attempts by the government to deport  them.  You have to ask: How Many More of Them Are There?

Fourteen Year-Old Pakistani Girl Shows What the Taliban Really Are

Posted in Child Abuse, Insanity, Insurgents, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Sharia Law, Taliban, Terrorism with tags , , , on 09/10/2012 by floroy1942

Malala At Age 11

Ever since the Taliban shut down her school, Malala Yousafzai from the Swat territory of Pakistan has been campaigning against the Taliban. She was just eleven years old when she started writing a blog for the BBC’s Urdu channel, telling the world what it was like to live under the yoke of the Taliban.

In 2007, when they seized control of Swat and the other border areas in Northern Pakistan after a ‘peace’ agreement with the government, they began a systematic reign of terror that included strict Sharia Law, mass executions, and the closing down of all centres of education for girls. All this in the name of Allah!

Typical Taliban Execution

Then one small girl of eleven began writing a diary of events as they happened under the Taliban. Her writings covered the sufferings of the people under the sadistic regime of the Taliban, and were picked up by the BBC and put into a blog.

Malala Receives Pakistan’s Peace Prize

She soon became famous, and after the insurgents were driven out of Swat by the Pakistan Army in 2009, she was given the highest civilian award by the government and was nominated for an international peace award for child activists. She had always written under the pseudonym Gul Makai, but when she received the award her real name came out. From that day the Taliban were out for vengeance.

Now aged fourteen, they finally caught up with her yesterday, and although details are not clear, a Taliban gunman shot her in the head, it is thought as she was about to board a school bus. The man even asked for her by name so there is no doubt she was the target.

Ehsanullah Ehsan – Taliban Spokesman

A spokesman for the Taliban, Ehsanullah Ehsan has already made public the fact that his group were responsible. Making a statement via telephone he said: “She was pro-West, she was speaking against the Taliban and she was calling President Obama her idol…….She was young but she was promoting Western culture in Pashtun areas.” The Pashtun area of Pakistan is where most of the Taliban fighters come from.

On the subject of the attack, the Pakistan Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf said: “We have to fight the mindset that is involved in this. We have to condemn it… Malala is like my daughter, and yours too. If that mindset prevails, then whose daughter would be safe?”

My only answer to that Raja is: “Actions speak louder than words my son”! So don’t just sit in your fancy chair pontificating about it, get your army organized and go after the bastards!

Malala On Her Way To Hospital

Although shot in the head, and some reports say also in the neck, encouraging reports are now coming from the hospital to say she seems to be out of danger. There can be little doubt that if she comes out of this episode successfully, the Taliban, by their vicious sadistic act will have created a world renowned  figure capable of doing their cause great harm. It can only be hoped that this brave young girl lives and is able to testify to the world all about the sadistic excesses of this greatly feared group of insurgents, and in particular the incompetent and lazy Pakistan government who have done nothing positive to deal with the Taliban.

All she wanted to do is be allowed to go to school and fulfil her dream of studying law and entering politics, but in the Taliban mind that is a death sentence. So much for the love of Allah and his prophet Mohammed!!!!

Pakistan Girl Arrest – The Clock Turns Full Circle

Posted in Child Abuse, Children, Christianity, Human Rights, Insanity, Islamic Revolution, Prison, Religion with tags , , , , , on 03/09/2012 by floroy1942

Young, Handicapped, and Innocent

It was with a feeling of satisfaction that I read Saturday that a Muslim cleric has been arrested for planting evidence on the mentally handicapped Rimsha Misah, a 14 year-old girl who has spent two weeks in prison for supposed blasphemy. It is well known that these controversial blasphemy laws have been used frequently by Muslims to get back at people they have a disagreement with, and to terrorise non-Muslim populations. Now, thankfully the ‘chickens have come home to roost’ and the scandalous nature of this despicable law is open for all to see.

Pakistan has a very small number of Christians with 97% of the population being Muslim. They have for many years been victimized in attempts to force them out of their homeland just for their beliefs, and in many cases in the past, the blasphemy laws have been used to stir up trouble. On many occasions ‘Mob Rule’ has taken over once an accusation has been made.  In the southern Punjab city of Bahawalpur last July, a mentally unstable man accused of blasphemy was dragged from a police station by an angry mob. Ignoring his pleas of innocence, the mob doused him with petrol and burned him alive. The girl herself would most likely have been given a death sentence under the blasphemy laws.

How Can Anyone Trust A Muslim Cleric?

In this most recent case, the Imam of the local mosque, Hafiz Mohammed Khalid Chishti was arrested Saturday. He already admitted to inciting his ‘flock’ to force out the Christians, and it was a number of his own followers who stepped forward and gave the vital evidence that resulted in his arrest. “He was arrested after his deputy Maulvi Zubair and two others told a magistrate he added pages from the Koran to the burnt pages brought to him by a witness,” said Munir Hussain Jaffri, a police investigator.

The defence lawyer for the girl Rimsha hopes to have her released today, for she has spent the last two weeks in the notorious Adiala jail, and who knows how much trauma she has suffered. Over 600 of her Christian neighbours in the area have fled, fearing reprisals from the local Muslims.

Not The Place For A Young Girl

It without doubt time for this archaic law to be scrapped, and considering the world-wide publicity this case has caused, now might be a good time for the government to step in and repeal it. Let’s hope so!

If Allah Is Merciful, Then Why Do Muslims Hate So Much?

Posted in Al Quada, America, Britain, Child Abuse, Christianity, Human Rights, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, Religion with tags , , on 20/08/2012 by floroy1942

I read with complete horror yesterday about a mentally disabled 11 year-old Pakistani girl who was arrested by the police at the behest of a baying mob of Muslims. They accused her of blasphemy because she supposedly carried a sack of rubbish with some pages of the Koran mixed in. It was probably just a coincidence that she was Christian from a Christian family, or so they will have us believe.

WHAT!!!

At first the police were loath to take action, but a large screaming crowd of Muslims threatened to start burning down Christian homes if they did not arrest her. It was widely known that the girl had a mental condition but this did not stop the Muslim crowd. When the girl, who is dyslexic, arrived at the police station she could not even answer the police questions. As a result of the disturbance some 600 Christian families have been forced to flee for their lives. Even though the police could find no trace of Koran pages in the sack she carried, the girl is currently being held in Islamabad prison “for her own protection”.

Salman Taseer

Pakistan has long fought a battle with Muslims over the contentious ‘Blasphemy Laws’ currently in force. Several politicians have tried to change them but it has cost them their lives. In 2011 Punjab Governor Salman Taseer, who was a prominent critic of the law, was assassinated by his bodyguard, and in March 2011 Religious Minorities Minister Shahbaz Bhatti was shot dead in Islamabad.

The Killer – How Pleased He Looks.

There is no great rush to follow in their shoes by members of the Pakistani government, although most would like very much to see these laws repealed. Part of the problem is that the blasphemy laws are often mis-used by Muslims to ‘get even’ with anyone they see as having offended them. The head of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, Zora Yusuf is quoted as saying: “It has been exploited by individuals to settle personal scores, to grab land, to violate the rights of non-Muslims, to basically harass them”.

The laws originated in India in 1860, were expanded in 1927, and eventually carried over into Pakistan Law when the country was first formed in 1947. Since that time these laws have been a bone of contention. They were expanded in 1980, 1982, 1984 and 1986, each time getting more discriminatory, with harsher sentences for the most minor infractions of the so-called ‘Muslim Code’. In certain parts of Pakistan, as a Christian you are better staying at least one hundred yards away from any Muslim or copy of the Koran, and keeping your mouth tightly closed. But all this is not the subject of this post.

Killed For Being A Christian?

To put it bluntly, if you ask any Muslim what Allah stands for, they will tell you that he is a peaceful God of mercy. So now comes the big question. If that is a righteous description of Allah and what he stands for, why are most Muslims so full of hate for anyone who is not a Muslim? Why do they demand that a mentally disabled girl of eleven be arrested and tried for carrying a bag full of waste that may or may not have contained a page or two of the Koran? Why are non-Muslims hung from street lamps, stoned to death, or spend the rest of their lives in a prison cell on some trumped up charge? Why are Christians for example vilified and killed all over the world just because they are not Muslims? Questions, questions, but never any satisfactory answers.

Do they think that this is what their wise, peaceful, and merciful Allah wants? Because I have to admit, it certainly doesn’t sound like it to me. Non-Muslims live in perpetual fear in countries with a large Muslim population, and many have been killed in his name.

Typical Muslims Who Follow the Teachings of Allah?

So what does this all mean? Is it that the Muslim perception of Allah is wrong and that he is in fact a merciless God who wants control of the world at any price? This I doubt. Could it be that there are evil men who profess to be Allah’s messengers (you know who I mean), who delight in seeing such destruction and death because it makes them feel powerful? Control over a blind, mindless mob is still power! I think this comes closer to the truth. How could bin Laden have said he is doing the work of Allah on 9/11 if his God is wise, merciful and peaceful?

I would be more than happy to hear the real truth behind Islam if any Muslim cares to comment. I am also sure there are many millions of non-Muslims who would too! May the peace of Allah be upon you.

A Question of Honour? – The Killing of Shafilea

Posted in Arab, Britain, Child Abuse, England, Human Rights, Justice, Muslim, Parenting, Religion, Sharia Law, Teens with tags , on 04/08/2012 by floroy1942

In your family does the ‘honour’ of the family rate above the life of one your children? No of course not, I would be surprised if it did. But strange though it may seem, in some cultures it is like that. This last week in Britain, Pakistani couple Iftikhar and Farzana Ahmed were jailed for a minimum of 25 years for killing their own daughter because she was ‘too westernized’ and thereby brought dishonour to the family name.

Shafilea

Their daughter Shafilea was a bright, ambitious seventeen-year-old who dreamed of being a lawyer, but she had one fatal flaw, she enjoyed the western way of life in a culture she had grown up in since birth. This was in direct contradiction to the strict Muslim upbringing forced on her by her parents. Shafilea liked to dress up in western clothes, buy things for herself and have boyfriends, but this is not the Muslim way. In the words of Justice Roderick Evans, at Chester Crown Court who passed sentence: “She [Shafilea] was being squeezed between two cultures, the culture and way of life that she saw around her and wanted to embrace, and the culture and way of life you (the parents) wanted to impose upon her; an expectation that she live in a sealed cultural environment separate from the culture of the country in which she lived was unrealistic, destructive and cruel.” He added, “Your concern about being shamed in your community was greater than your love of your child.”

Iftikhar and Farzana Ahmed had always told Shafilea she would be married off to a stranger in Pakistan in a so-called ‘arranged marriage’ but in early 2003 she rebelled and fled the family home. Her freedom did not last long for she was captured, drugged, and taken to rural Punjab in Pakistan where she was to be married to a man ten years her senior. In a desperate attempt to forestall the arrangement, she drank a quantity of bleach and became very ill. Her throat was very badly damaged and the ‘suitor’ declined to marry her. After this she was immediately shipped back to the UK and her parents, who locked her in her room, beating and starving her into submission.

Family Honour Was Worth More Than Their daughter

On October 11th 2003 Farzana Ahmad picked up her daughter from school and saw her in clothes she considered indecent. In her opinion, Shafilea had brought shame on the family and once home she was killed in front of her brother and sisters. This presumably as a lesson to their other offspring. In court the two were found guilty of ramming a plastic bag in her mouth and covering her nose until she choked to death. They then dumped her body beside the River Kent in Cumbria, England, in February 2004.

Iftikhar Ahmed arrived in the UK at the age of ten and was therefore fully aware of western culture and habits. He was previously married to a Danish woman and was known to ‘socialize’ while living in Denmark, however, he married his current wife, Farzana in 1985 in Pakistan.

Alisha Ahmed

In the years that followed, Iftikhar and Farzana Ahmed strenuously denied having killed her, claiming she had run away. It was not until August 2010 that Alisha, the younger sister of Shafilea was arrested by the police on charges of organizing a robbery at her parents home that the truth came out. She told police what had happened that evening in 2003 for she and her brother and sisters had been made to watch the entire spectacle.

Justice Roderick Evans summed it up by saying:  “and a truly horrifying feature is that you killed Shafilea in the presence of your other four children”. He added, “you also made your surviving children put forward an account which was intended to hide what you did”.

A truly despicable crime, but not uncommon in the Muslim enclaves of rural Pakistan, and in fact the rest of the Muslim world. In 2011 there were 943 deaths among women associated with ‘honour’ killings in Pakistan alone, and 2010 saw a 47% rise in honour related crimes in the UK, although not necessarily ending in murder, a with a total  of 2283 registered.

Muslim Justice

This tradition, if you can call it that, goes way back in Muslim history and stems from the fact that the Muslim male is paramount in Muslim society. Women are nothing more than a means to produce more Muslim men, and girls are only tolerated because they are needed to father the next generation of men. For this reason they rank very low in Muslim society, and are nothing more than chattels that must be covered from head to toe and be subservient to men at all times. Any act, by any Muslim woman that goes against this code is deemed to have ‘stained’ the ‘family honour’, and the only way for the family to regain that ‘honour’ is to remove the stain, permanently. This ‘stain’ can be as little as a young girl talking to a boy or even wearing the wrong clothes.

Personally, I find it despicable that such a thing is still allowed in this century and would urge all governments to make an example of parents guilty of such crimes, as has just happened in England. It is time to stamp out this hideous crime, and if necessary, force all those who condone such acts to outlaw them completely. It must start with Muslim clerics who approve, and often encourage such acts, to start telling their people that it is wrong. Governments can only do so much, but they should do what they can.
