Tre donne cristiane costrette a camminare nude per strada: Colpevole un latifondista sostenuto dal Governo della Lega Musulmana (N)

e2624d365f[1]
(LAHORE) Secondo Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) tre donne cristiane sono state attaccate e costrette da una folla dei musulmani, sostenuta dalla Lega Musulmana (N), a camminare nude.
Le tre donne cristiana-Arshad Bibi, Sajida Bibi e Sauriya Bibi – la nuova di Sadiq Masih, residente del Sereser Chak N. 21 a Kasur, sono state picchiate brutalmente e successivamente costrette a camminare nude dagli uomini armati che sono impiegati di Muhammad Munir, figlio di Abdul Rasheed, un latofondista che ha il sostegno della Lega Musulmana (N). L’accaduto è del 3 Giugno quando i maschi della famiglia stavano al lavoro. Gli attaccanti erano armati con pistole e bastoni, sono entrati nella casa saltando dal muro e dopo hanno aperto il cancello. A quell’ora le donne stavano dormendo a casa con il loro suocero Sadiq Masih, anni 73 e la suocera Rani Bibi, anni 70.
La folla guidata da Muhammad Munir, Abrahim, Muhammad Rafique e i loro figli Ahmed, Asif, Abid, Wassem, Waqas e Shabir insieme a tre persone non identificate sono entrati nella casa. Quando sono entrati nella casa hanno cominciato a cercare i figli di Sadiq Masih e quando non l’hanno trovati hanno cominciato a picchiare le tre donne.
I membri del Partito a questo punto hanno trascinato le donne cristiano per strada dove le luci erano accese e le hanno strappati i vestiti.
Poi hanno cominciato a urlare per attirare l’attenzione delle persone nelle vicinanze per farli vedere la vendetta e il potere del latifondista. Nessuno ha provato a fermarli in quanto gli uomini erano armati. A causa delle urla delle vittime alcuni anziani del villaggio sono venuti fuori e hanno messo il proprio turbante, segno d’onore, ai piedi degli attaccanti per dimostrarli il proprio rispetto e assicurarli onore. Dopo questo gli attaccanti hanno rilasciato le donne e hanno minacciato che se qualcuno si permetteva a denunciarli allora dovranno subire gravi conseguenze.
Quando tutto questo stava accadendo, qualcuno ha chiamato la polizia che è arrivata dopo un’po. Invece di prendere azione contro gli attaccanti la polizia ha cercato di calmare la folla dei cristiani che protestava contro l’accaduto.
La ragione dell’accaduto sembra che un paio di volte le capri dei cristiani sono entrate nei campi del latifondista Munir che dice che le capre hanno rovinato il suo campo. Visto che le capre erano dei cristiani allora Munir le ha confiscate.
La mattina dell’accaduto, Shaukat, il figlio di Sadiq Masih, è andato da Munir insieme alle cognate e li ha pregato di rilasciare le capre. Munir ha rifiutato di rilasciarle e ha cominciato a pichiarlo. Munir lo ha schiaffeggiato molte volte bestemiato. Quando Shoukat, in difesa, ha dato uno schiaffo a Munir allora lui si è infuriato e lo ha minacciato. Tutto questo ha provocato l’attacco di vendetta durante cui hanno ferito Sadiq Masih e la sua gamba è stata colpita in più punti.

Il 4 Giugno Avvocato Sardar Mushtaq Gill, dopo aver consultato il capo della Polizia a Pattoki, ha registrato la denuncia contro il latofondista e i suoi uomini secondo gli articoli 231/13 delle sezioni 452, 354, 337/FI, 149, 148 del Codice Penale Pakistano. Le vittime hanno ricevuto il certificato che accerta le ferite ricevute durante l’attacco dal Dipartimento della Salute del Governo del Punjab ma la polizia non ha fatto niente contro i colpevoli ne per l’attacco ne per aver umiliato le donne facendo le camminare nude per strada.
Invece la Polizia ha registrato subito una denuncia da parte del Latifondista secondo gli articoli 234/13 della Sezione 440, 379, 148 e 149 del Codice Penale Pakistano. Questo non era una sorpresa per i cristiani del quartiere perchè è una pratica comune che i musulmani in Pakistani aumentano la pressione sui cristiani per farli ritirare la propria denuncia. Un membro del Parlamento Nazionale, Rana Ishaq della Lega Musulmana (N) sta costringendo la Polizia a non agire contro gli attaccanti in quanto sostengo il Partito al Governo.

Outcome of Christian-Muslim unrest in Bheel Nagar, Nazareth Colony, Rahim Yar Khan and emerging issues

images[1]
(report by Fr. Gulshan Barkat)
On 24th June 2013, the elders of Bheel Nagar were invited for a meeting at the residence of Mr. Akbar Sardar in Bheel Nagar. This meeting was called by Fr. Gulshan Barkat OMI, in his capacity as a member of the locality, who had been with the Christians of Bheel Nagar as the unrest took place.
The meeting was attended by around 50 men belonging to Christian and Hindu communities. The notable figures in this meeting were the father of the accused Christian boy Sam, Mr. Patras Sadeep, Sam’s grandfather Mr. Sadeeq Masih, Fr. Gulshan Barkat OMI, Advocate Qamar Iqbal, Pervez Sardar, Dr. Gulzar Rehmat, Akbar Sardar, Khursheed Masih (Driver), Maqsood Barkat Mattu, Shahzad Barkat Mattu, Iqbal Sahotra, Barkat Sardar, Babar Masih, George Masih, Akhtar Sadeeq, Ashfaq Mushtaq, Shamas Iqbal Sahotra, Daleep Kumar, Zahid Ghulam; from Hindu community Mohan Rasham Jee, Ghansham Kanaiya Jee and Khakam Padma Jee.

Three points were on the agenda:
1. Offering thanks to everyone on the scene or behind the scene, figures in and out of the country who offered their moral, spiritual, and diplomatic support.
2. Self-evaluation (on the part of Christians what were the deficiencies that hindered bringing situation under control in the beginning?).
3. Formulation of a plan to avoid such incidents from occurring in future.

1. Offering thanks
On the outset Fr. Gulshan thanked the participants in the meeting. He gave a religio-political environment within the country, the place of Christians in Pakistani society and certain inputs on the recently concluded tension between Christians and Muslims in Bheel Nagar. Mr. Sadeeq Masih, the grandfather of accused Sam on behalf of his family thanked the Christian community of Bheel Nagar, Fr. Francis Akuve Cssp, Fr. Gulshan Barkat OMI, people abroad who had offered their services through diplomatic, moral and spiritual means to calm down the situation. Likewise others also had the same sense of gratitude and thankfulness for all visible and invisible hands to bring the situation under control.

2. Self-Evaluation
This was a touchy and critical issue for discussion. First of all Sadeeq Masih presented his version of the story to the participants. According to him the Muslim party came armed to his house and began the fight. Sadeeq Masih stated, “the physical fight took place because the Muslim party had pre-mediated plan to so”. The others questioned Sadeeq that why did he not give some slaps to his grandson in front of the Muslims who came to accuse him to please them and finish the matter then and there? Why did the family not make efforts to try to take a more mediatory gesture even though the Muslim party came with arms? Why the family of the accused not take things seriously in the beginning that this issue could turn into a religious issue?
After this the whole series of issue came out, namely education of children, their daily life and activities, the role of parents in the education and formation of their children, their co/extra-curriculum activities etc.
3. Formulation of a plan
The participants realized the importance of education. They recognized that one of the root causes for such unpleasant events is education. So it was unanimously agreed upon that children of Nazareth colony should go to school and parents should play their role in educating their offsprings.
Fr. Gulshan proposed to form a ‘Peace Committee’ comprising of Christian, Muslims and Hindu representatives. Each religious community must be represented equally in numbers. The representatives of each religious community must be chosen by their community and must be backed fully by it. This committee will have quarterly meetings whether there are issues or not in order to know each other and share meals etc. The meetings will be hosted in turns by Christians, Muslims and Hindus so that an atmosphere of trust be built and further enhanced.
This proposal was welcomed by all the participants. Christians and Hindus have already agreed to form such a committee. There are also positive signs from the Muslim community of the locality to accept the proposal.

Issues emerging from tension between Christians and Muslims
It is noted that only 30 per cent of Christian children go to school in Bheel Nagar, 20 per cent go with their parents or are sent by their parents to earn money while other 50 per cent roam on the streets whole day and are found engaged in activities like drinking, using drugs, immoral behaviors etc. The education ratio is drastically low in Bheel Nagar among Christians which has given birth to different vices in the locality as mentioned above as an example.
In the meeting some participants were of the view that there are some parents who cannot afford to send their children to school while some who can afford to send their children to school have an indifferent attitude towards education. Some were of the opinion that even if their children get education, they will not be able to get government jobs since they are discriminated against by the Muslim community when they apply for it. On the other hand some said, “they can afford but their children do not listen to them and refuse to go to school. So how can we send them to school? We cannot be beating them all the time since they become very adamant and difficult to handle.”
The issue of education has emerged very strongly in this episode of tension. If children are in school, they will spend about five morning hours in school. They will come back home tired, will eat and take rest. After siesta they will begin their homework. In the evening they will go out to play for some time and come back home. Here given the locality situation, there is no play-ground for children. Children like to play and make fun. In Bheel Nagar one will find all houses, no open space where children could play cricket, football or take physical exercise to release their tiredness and energies. So even if children go to school and have no place to play, one may find them engaged in certain other activities with their friends which can displease others.
Economic issue
About 97 per cent of Christians living in Bheel Nagar work for daily wages. They have no government jobs. About 40 per cent women work in the houses of Muslim families in the city of Rahim Yar Khan. Quite a number of them undergo physical and sexual violence at their work-place in Muslim houses. Majority of men are engaged in carrying flour bags, loading and offloading carriers in Flour Mills around the locality. Bheel Nagar is surrounded by three big Flour Mills. In front of Bheel Nagar, across the major bypass road there is a Cotton & Ginning factory. During cotton season, men of Bheel Nagar find work in there. Those children who do not go to school will find themselves with their parents at workplace; boys with their fathers and girls with their mothers . It opens another huge issue of child labor. There are only few Christian families who have come up in social and economic mobility.
Religio-social issue
About 15 years ago there were only two religious communities living in Bheel Nagar namely Christians and Hindus. Bheel Nagar locality was chalked out at the request of a Member of Provincial Assembly (MPA) of Punjab, Lala Mehar Lal Bheel to the government of Pakistan, in 1973 for the Bheel community when a major flood hit the district of Rahim Yar Khan and displaced many. At that time 8 acres were allotted for the displaced Bheel community on sand-dunes. Out of 8 acres, 2 acres were reserved for a graveyard. Fr. Timothy Carney OP, Pastor Umar, Miss Rita and Khursheed Masih (Driver) went to Lala Mehar Lal and requested for a portion of land out of 8 acres for the displaced Christians too. He granted their request and gave away 2 acres, meant for graveyard, to Christians. For some time Christians and Bheels lived in harmony but it did not last long and there was a severe fight between both communities over a dispute of a piece of land in Bheel Nagar. At this Lala Mehar Lal tried to put out Christians from Bheel Nagar but all attempts failed. Gradually Bheels began to leave the locality and sold their properties to Christians. This way Christians became majority and began calling the locality ‘Nazareth Colony’ instead of Bheel Nagar, although the name in the government papers remains ‘Bheel Nagar.’.
According to the 1956 Pakistan government (East and West Pakistan) statistics, there are about 32 Scheduled caste tribes of Hindus living in the country. The Scheduled caste Hindus are considered untouchable. They include Kohli, Menghwar, Bheel, Bagri, Balmikis, Jogi and Oad. The majority of Scheduled caste Hindus, like Bheels are living in Tharparkar and Umerkot districts of Sindh and Rahim Yar Khan and Bahawalpur districts in Southern Punjab.
In 1990s there were only few Muslim houses outside, little far from the 8 acres land meant for the Bheels. Early 2000s saw the influx of Muslim community around Bheel Nagar who bought land and settled there. Today there is a sizeable population of Muslims sharing walls with Bheel Nagar. There are about 150 Christian families, 200 Muslim families and 50 to 60 Bheel and Menghwar families living in and around Bheel Nagar. The social and religious spectrum has changed dramatically during the past decade. In this atmosphere inter-religious dialogue among these three religions of Bheel Nagar has become very imperative for harmonious co-existence of Christians, Muslims and Bheels.
It is possible that Christians will hear from Muslims that they should not ring the church bells or should avoid using loud-speakers during prayer services in the Church. Keeping in mind the possible forthcoming misunderstanding, it is of paramount importance that the peace committee be formed consisting of Christians, Muslims and Hindus (Bheels and Menghwars). This way an environment of understanding and co-existence can be built and religious tensions will be minimized.

Christian-Muslim unrest in Nazareth Colony, Bheel Nagar, Rahim Yar Khan, Pakistan, June 22, 2013

(Reported by Fr. Gulshan Barkat OMI)
On June 21st 2013 an atmosphere of uncertainty prevailed in Bheel Nagar, named by Christians as Nazareth Colony, Rahim Yar Khan, Pakistan when tension between Christians and Muslims over a social issue occurred. Nazareth colony has around 250 Christian families. There are around 70 Hindu families while about 200 Muslim families.
On June 21st at 5 p.m. a Catholic boy by the name of Sam aged 8 was accused by a Muslim man of teasing his daughter of 8 years old. Sam is studying in a government school in Bheel Nagar in class 4. Sam has another brother namely Ashley of 12 years old. Their father’s name is Patras Sadeeq who is a fodder-seller. The father of the girl by the name of Muhammad Hameed (related to Sipah-e-Sahaba) accusing Sam of teasing her, came to Patras’ house with 7 armed molvis (Muslim religious leaders) who first exchanged hot words with Patras’ family and then started a physical fight. Earlier Muhammad Hameed had accused an Ice-seller for teasing his daughter. Later he accused Sam and called the police. When the Police came, they took Sam’s elder brother Ashley instead of Sam. No FIR (First Information Report) had been registered against Sam or Ashley. The police took the child, put him in a police mobile vehicle and led him to the police station. At this police action, the Christian community of the area blocked the major bypass road in protest of this arrest of a minor. After driving about 2 km, the SHO of C-Division Police Station, Rahim Yar Khan, Muhammad Ashraf phoned the Christian community representative Qamar Iqbal, a Catholic lawyer to take the boy. This way Ashley was released before he reached the police station due to pressure from the Christian community.
Later 8 representatives of the Christian community went to the police station C-Division, Rahim Yar Khan to lodge an FIR against the Muslims for creating trouble for Christians based on false allegations. The Christian community was also of the view that they should lodge a complaint with the police before the Muslims twist the incident and make it a blasphemy case. When the Christian representatives reached the C-Division police station, they found over 100 men already present there of Sipa-e-Sahaba (a Muslim terrorist organization) who had come to lodge an FIR against Christians. Then Christian representatives phoned back home to get more men at the police station. The number of Christians totaled around 60 while there were over 100 Muslims. After lodging the complaint, Christians returned home while two Christians by the names of Maqsood Barkat and Illyas Masih remained behind. They were given a lift by a Muslim by the name of Muhammad Javed living in Bheel Nagar.
They had come about 1 km from the police station around 10 p.m. on a motorbike when they were surrounded by 35 to 40 armed men on motorbikes. These men introduced themselves as men of Sipah-e-Sahaba and started beating them severely. Three of those that were beaten sustained severe hidden injuries. These men accused Muhammad Javed of siding with Christians.
When the Christian community of Bheel Nagar heard the ordeal of this beating, they again staged a protest and blocked the bypass road. DPO, Habib Sohail of Rahim Yar Khan and SHO Muhammad Ashraf of C-Division Police Station, Rahim Yar Khan came to persuade the Christian community to call off the protest and clear the bypass road. The DPO threatened the Christian community of dire consequences if they did not clear the road. Later the Christian community called off the protest after promises of justice from DSP (Deputy Superintend of police) and DPO (District Police Officer). Ishaq Dhilu, DSP of City Circle has given promises of protection and security to Christians of Bheel Nagar but that remains little as he has done nothing in calming down the situation.
On the whole there has not been sufficient cooperation and collaboration with the Christian community on the part of the civil authority of Rahim Yar Khan Fr. Francis Akuve Cssp, the parish priest of Holy Cross Parish, Rahim Yar Khan had a meeting with DPO and submitted his letter requesting the police to provide security to Christians of Bheel Nagar.
On 22nd at 5:30 p.m. there was a peace talk at the house of Mazhar Nisar, the leader of Jamiat-e-Ulma Islami, Rahim Yar Khan. There were five Christian representatives sent namely Qamar Iqbal, Pervez Sardar, Shahid Saleem, Sadeeq Jalal and Illyas Noor. Christian representatives arrived on time there while the Muslim party did not appear.
It was known that the men of Sipah-e-Sahaba were gathering at the house of Malik Ishaq, the Vice president of Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan. The situation is very tense at Bheel Nagar since there has no agreement reached between Christians and Muslims.

“Are we paying security agencies only to shower bullets in Fata and to create target killers?”: Sen. Hafiz Hamdullah (JUI-F)

(Amir Wasim: Dawn)
Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan triggered a debate on the issue of civil-military relationship when he admitted in the Senate that Saturday’s terrorist attacks on Ziarat Residency and Bolan Medical Complex in Quetta were result of “serious security lapse” and “lack of coordination” between security and law enforcement agencies.
The house was shocked to see the minister admitting that terrorists had managed to transport a huge quantity of explosives and arms in vehicles passing through a number of check-posts manned by the police, FC and even army personnel both in Ziarat and Quetta.
Chaudhry Nisar said that no-one could enter or leave hilly Ziarat without being checked by security personnel at limited entry and exit points.
He said there could be no heavier security presence in Quetta where checkposts had been set up every 100 yards and it was surprising how the terrorists managed to carry weapons and tonnes of explosive through these posts.
PPP Senator Farhatullah Babar welcomed the remarks of Chaudhry Nisar that the Balochistan issue was a manifestation of lack of coordination between civil and military authorities as a correct diagnosis and said the civil-military disconnect was indeed the root of the problem. He said parliament would support the interior minister in his efforts to address the issue.
Mr Babar informed the house that the previous PPP-led government had made numerous attempts to bring the country’s security agencies under the ambit of law.
Showing scepticism, the PPP senator said that he doubted that the PML-N government would succeed in doing so. But he offered complete cooperation to the interior minister and said that he was ready to tell Chaudhry Nisar why his party’s government had failed to make any progress and why its efforts remained fruitless.
Mr Babar said enforced disappearances, a core issue in Balochistan, had become complicated because of historical disconnect between civil and security establishment.
“To address the issue of missing persons, we need to bring the operation of state agencies under the ambit of legislation,” he said.
He said the National Assembly, the Senate, the Parliamentary Committee on National Security and the Commission on Enforced Disappearances all had strongly pleaded for legislative oversight of the agencies. During hearing in the missing persons’ cases, the Supreme Court had also observed that there was a need for such legislation, he said.
PPP’s parliamentary leader Raza Rabbani said it appeared that the interior minister had apprehensions that terrorists were being “helped and abetted by some elements within the security apparatus”. He said the situation would not improve until the security apparatus was brought under the parliamentary and civil control.
PML-Q’s Mushahid Hussain said there were islands within the security system. “All (intelligence) agencies are islands itself. There is a need for coordination between intelligence agencies, be it the ISI, MI or the IB,” he added.
The PML-Q senator took exception to a recent reported statement of Army Chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani that the armed forces were prepared to thwart any aggression from India.
He said India didn’t need to show aggression as the country was facing a serious internal security threats resulting in the deaths of over 50,000 people.
He advised the interior minister to visit Sri Lanka to see how a country without having nuclear arms, without a big army and without the US support had crushed the most “ferocious” terrorism merely through the political will of the leadership.
Hafiz Hamdullah of the JUI-F questioned huge budgetary allocations for intelligence and security agencies after their repeated failure in preventing terrorism incidents in the country.
“Are we paying security agencies only to shower bullets in Fata and to create target killers?”
Kalsoom Parveen of the Balochistan National Party (A) said there were a number of reports in media hinting at the “involvement of agencies” in various terrorism-related incidents.

“Se diventi cristiana, ti uccidiamo”. E la vedova musulmana scappa nelle Filippine

e2624d365f[1]
La donna pakistana era stata minacciata dal marito e dai parenti. Dopo la conversione, la fuga con i suoi quattro figli
Mauro Pianta
ROMA

Fauzia, la chiameremo così, voleva abbracciare la fede cattolica. Ma se vivi in Pakistan, se sei una donna nata e cresciuta in una famiglia islamica e hai un marito musulmano, la cosa diventa maledettamente complicata. Lei, 42 anni, una laurea, quattro figli, qualche anno fa era rimasta colpita da una donna occidentale che aveva conosciuto in un negozio della città di Lahore. Erano diventate amiche, Fauzia e l’occidentale. Quella donna aveva una luce particolare, le aveva raccontato del cristianesimo. Ma Fauzia era rimasta affascinata soprattutto dal modo in cui l’amica viveva. Da quel giorno aveva cominciato ad assediarla di domande. Poi la donna occidentale era partita. Fauzia prende la sua decisione: «Voglio diventare cristiana, ci riuscirò». Un giorno prova ad accennare la cosa al marito, lui la picchia.
Anche i parenti, riferiscono fonti locali di Vatican Insider, non avevano gradito: «Se fai una cosa del genere, ti ammazziamo», l’avevano minacciata.
Un anno fa, la svolta: il marito, improvvisamente, muore. E Fauzia si ritrova vedova con quattro figli di 10, 12, 15 e 18 anni. Anche con loro, ormai più libera, inizia un dialogo. E tutti decidono di diventare cristiani. A quel punto esisteva solo una possibilità: fuggire. Sparire.
E’ il momento di usare quel numero che l’amica le aveva lasciato. La vedova e i suoi figli scappano. Di notte. Come ladri. Anche se il vero ladro è uno Stato che ti priva della libertà di coscienza. Un paese nel quale ogni anno circa 700 ragazze cristiane vengono rapite, stuprate e costrette a diventare musulmane. Adesso Fauzia e i suoi figli vivono nelle Filippine. Hanno una casa: lei lavora, loro studiano. Una vita normale. Quella vietata (ai cristiani) in Pakistan.

Matrimonio con il Corano (Haque Bakhish): Donne musulmane dalle famiglie latifondiste, nel sud del Pakistan, sono costrette a dedicarsi alla lettura del Corano per tutta la vita invece di sposarsi!

Matrimonio con il Corano (“Haque Bakhish”, “Haq-Baksh-Wai”, “Haq Bakhshwan”, “Haq Bakhashwain” ) è una pratica comune nel sud del Pakistan. Qui si riporta il contributo di una donna pakistana, di fede islamica, che lo considera peggio di “omicidio per onore”.
(Uzma Mazhar, autrice)
Di recente ho letto di una pratica orribile in Pakistan che è peggio dell’omicidio per onore”. In un report intitolato ” matrimonio con il Corano” nel giornale settimane pakistano “The Friday Times”, c’è scritto:
“Secondo Khabrain (un giornale) una maggioranza dei latifondisti in Sindh ha sposato le loro figlie con il Corano. La cerimonia ha avuto luogo dopo che la ragazza della famiglia ha fatto bagno, dopodiche un Corano è stato messo nelle sue mani e i maschi l’hanno chiesto scusa per il rituale che la condanerebbe a non sposarsi mai ma dovrà leggere il Corano tutti i giorni. In Sindh, la sorella del Membro del Parlamento Regionale Shabir Shah, una sorella e due figlie del ex-ministro Murad Shah, tre figlie di Mir Awwal Shah di Matiari, figlie e sorelle di Sardar Dadan e Nur Khan della tribù di Lund, nipotine di Sardar Ghulam della Mahar tribù e le figlie di Pir di Bharchundi Sharif, tutte sono state sposate con il Corano per evitare che si debba darle parte della proprietà terriera e così per evitare la ridistrizuione della terra.” http://www.thefridaytimes.com/ (N.Jan 17-23, 2003)

Questo fatto è ovviamente abusivo e non-islamico. Questa pratica non ha niente da fare con la religione. Invece è per il potere, controllo e avidità. Le donne non sono valutate abastanza per considerare la loro intera vita, e i sogni e speranze che possono avere … sono rovinate da una “tradizione” che è inumana e fuori da qualsiasi spiegazione razionale. Sotto la veste di dedicare la loro vita al Corano, le vite di queste donne sono marcate e cancellate. In tentativo di legitimizzare il loro attitudine barbarica viene abusato il Corano e l’Islam. Ma loro veramente credono che dandoli una prospettiva religiosa questa pratica può diventare accettabile? Questo non è diverso dalle pratiche Jâhilîyah di seppelire le ragazze vive che l’Islam ha combattuto dall’inizio.

Ovviamente questa non è una pratica recente e solo Dio lo sà da quando sta andando avanti. Ovviamente gli uomini capiscono che questo non è giusto e per questo chiedono scusa prima di rovinarle la vita. Nella stessa maniera sono da considerare colpevoli altre mamme e donne della famiglia che permettono una simile pratica … anche loro sono complici di questo crimine. Immaginare che un padre, fratello, mamma o sorella permette questo a continuare è fuori dalla comprensione. Ovviamente la società in cui questa pratica continua è in silezio è da considerare colpevole nella stessa maniera.

L’Islam NON permette o incoraggia distaccamento dal mondo per la religione. Quando in Islam è scoraggiato diventare monaco o suora, nemmeno è visto come altissimo livello della santità o devozione … come possono considerarlo giusto o permissibile? I nomi sopramenzionati non sono delle persone senza cultura, ma sono gli uomini che hanno posizioni di potere … e fidarsi di loro per fare le leggi umane per le donne è ridicolo e terrificante.

L’Islam NON da il potere senza limiti all’uomo quando li viene conferito lo status di “capo famiglia”. Questo status non legitimizza i loro abusi. Questo mi fa rabbia che gli uomini abusono le donne, ma questo mi arrabia ancora di più quando le donne ci stanno e lo permettono . L’Islam NON vuole le pecore per i suoi adepti. Come capo famiglia gli uomini devono proteggere le donne DAI abusi… non di cambiare il ruolo e abusarle.
