    It's in the Telegraph or are you in such a state of denial that anything bad said about Islam is automatically false?
    No poor journalism that's all, and it being a right wing newspaper catering to such rational minds as Douglas Murray, I can only suspect they had a slow news day.

    I think we can trust the Telegraph to do its research - there is a press code of conduct in case you weren't aware.
    There isn't really, not when it comes to news stories pertaining to Muslims. Anything that bound to cause outrage, hysteria or what not is going to sell irrelavent to its actual accuracy.

    I'm not playing on the relative morality merry-go-round today. It's wrong to flog a woman for getting pregnant as a result of being raped. Period.

    If you're not outraged by this sort of thing you must be a lump of wood.
    I'm just desensitised, this is just the kind of thing the uncivilised world gets up to, and even if we went to show them how to conduct themselves everyone would start moaning about 'unjust' wars and 'empires' and the like. Leave them to it.

    Well, to humour you here is a link to the press complains commission http://www.pcc.org.uk/. Why don't you make a complaint? I'm sure your objections are based on fact, rather then an emotional need for denial of what's carried out in your religion's name.

    I think it's atrocious, but to be honest I don't buy into these media stories anymore. Hardly are ever checked as credible and most are based on hear say aiming to cash in on the whole let's bash Islam every 8 seconds in the West.

    Period.
    She won't be having one of those any time soon. But yeah i think she should be given 101 dalmatians instead.

    Here's the same story in the Bangladesh News.

    That isn't my point, that paper most probably being a tabloid doesn't help either. Some Muslims can be opportunists too.

    No I have better things to do with my life than to complain over a news story, it's not going to change anything anyway so.....

    I think the idea behind it may be that for a girl to get pregnant she too has to orgasm, which was the view in Europe until fairly recently. That thus means she enjoyed it, which is wrong to them I guess.

    Couldn't the time you spend on this thread (and many other similar threads) denouncing negative stories about muslims be better spent complaining to the PCC about all these lies?

    The country is about 100 years behind the times, give it time...you can't just be all high and mighty about it.

    She didn't scream loud enough or didn't successfully fight off the attacker...that sort of mentality existed in the West not very long ago...no?

    No not really with one article you complain about you have several hundred other newspapers pouncing on another story so again it's a waste of time.

    She needs to consider the consequences of her actions. How irresponsible to become pregnant. Could she not have asked this man to wear protection first?
