    And this is what liberals want to pump into our country by the millions. How any woman can be respectful towards Islam astonishes me.

    That isn't my point, that paper most probably being a tabloid doesn't help either. Some Muslims can be opportunists too.
    Wow, you really are an apologist. Oh and you should know, as far as I know it's a broadsheet - I'm guessing you have evidence to the contrary?

    Christ on a cross - what's wrong with these people?

    To all the people so eager to criticize Islam, give me one way this is connected to my religion? Not even the imbeciles on TSR can say that Islam in anyway allows such acts of atrocities. Quite appalling that everything that happens in a so called Islamic country is automatically blamed on Islam.

    Stories like these sell because that's what people want to read, same with all the Brangalina b*******. Neither story can be deemed newsworthy.

    Actually, I don't think I ever mentioned Islam. Nor does the article itself.

    the sharia courts of bangladesh have been notified - they will sort out the matter, hopefuly the death sentance to the rapist and the idiots that issued the fatwa

    bangladesh newspaper report:

    JUSTICE has been made a farce of once again. In a shocking repetition of misuse of fatwa, a rape victim was at the receiving end of a hundred and one lashes; the punishment was fixed through local arbitration participated by some village elders in a village in Kashba upazilla. And the rapist is roaming scot-free.

    The incident is shocking not only for the gruesome brutality meted out to the 16 year old girl, but also because of the attitude of the law enforcing agency who did not act promptly enough to prevent the whipping or take cognisance of the incident later. It is very clear that the High Court directive to the police, issued in August 2009, to investigate all extrajudicial punishments, has not been fully implemented. Had that been the case the perpetrators would have been brought to justice and made examples of, and this would have acted as a deterrent to others.

    The recent incident is disturbing on two counts. It demonstrates once again that helpless women, who are victims of rape and other forms of torture, not only cannot seek redress of law, they and their parents are further subjected to physical and mental torture including social ostracisation, as in the recent case in Kashba.

    The other disturbing aspect is the role of the police. We cannot comprehend the statement the OC of Kashba PS that he would take appropriate action if the victim filed a case in this regard. He is in clear breach of the High Court directives in this regard. It is even more disturbing because three women have been victims of lashing as result of fatwa in this very district during the current month.

    One cannot speak too strongly against this kind of aberrations that is being used to perpetrate violence against women. This practice must stop immediately. We join with the conscious segment of the society in calling upon the government to take steps to stop the parallel system of justice that misuse the name of religion. While the highest court has taken cognisance of the matter the police have not been quite up to the task earnestly as yet.

    We suggest that the perpetrators of torture on the hapless girl be proceeded against immediately, and the OC, who is waiting for the victim to lodge a formal complaint to take action, act without delay.

    Islam encourages the kind of views which lead to these kinds of acts.

    Her rape emerged after her pregnancy test and Muslim elders in the village issued a fatwa insisting that the girl be kept in isolation until her family agreed to corporal punishment.
    Her rapist was pardoned by the elders. She told the newspaper the rapist had "spoiled" her life.


    A fatwā (Arabic: فتوى‎; plural fatāwā Arabic: فتاوى‎), in the Islamic faith is a religious opinion concerning Islamic law issued by an Islamic scholar

    Islam may not go 'you may rape a woman and then give her 101 lashes if she becomes pregnant' but it certainly encourages the subordination of women which, in turn, leads to these sort of things.

    So what if they issued a fatwah? Fatwahs are being handed out like sweets by ignorant people. They probably issued an opinion but arabic words sell newspapers.

    Still it's too exorbitant to be believable so my point still stands.

    So it is connected to Islam as it is a "religious opinion concerning Islamic law issued by an Islamic scholar".




    You know what I love?

    How very few people have actually come on this thread and said - No, those are imbeciles, they shouldn't be considered muslims, **** them, this isn't true Islam.


    No, most people go - OMGGG STOP HATIIIINGGG IZ LIKE A LIEEEE JUST SENSATIONALIST STORYYYY


    You don't see a problem with that?


    WRT your edit:


    So what if they issued a fatwah? Fatwahs are being handed out like sweets by ignorant people. They probably issued an opinion but arabic words sell newspapers.

    The point is everybody is quick to defend Islam and the veracity of the story, few have bothered denouncing the actions of the supposed muslim elders.


    The fact that it is a fatwa simply makes it connected (even if loosely) to Islam.

    Absolute ignorant imbeciles and the fact that one of you is Pakastani just makes it more disgusting. Don't talk about Islam if you don't have a single clue what your on about. SHARIA LAW?? Give me one source where a raped woman gets flogged. You must have be and idiot to even think such a thing.
