Message from a former Muslim, now Christian preacher for all the non-muslims of the world. (Nov 2012)

From Yucki:

Christian Pastor in Uganda Attacked by Muslims with buckets of Acid

This man of G-d was born to follow Mohammed and raised to disseminate dawa filth. Then he heard the call of Christ and knew truth. His courage to spread the “good news” was rewarded by a world of pain.

After 2 years in hospital in Israel, he’s ready to go back to his family and his church. But first he’s asked to say a few words to the public.

Starting at 6:03 is a message to Christians – a sermon more powerful than any you’re likely to hear at church tomorrow.

Then he’s asked what he’d tell others watching the video – Jews, secular people in the West. He’s just as direct, just as powerful as a biblical prophet.

A Victoria’s Secret shop assistant was scarred for life when a mysterious figure wearing a niqab threw acid in her face as she walked home from work.

Naomi Oni, 20, was left with severe burns on her head, neck, arms, legs and body after she was attacked in Dagenham, east London.

Her attacker was dressed like a Muslim woman in a niqab, so Ms Oni could not see their face. Police have no idea who was responsible for the vicious attack, or why they did it.

A teenage boy suffered ‘horrendous’ injuries that could leave him blind after acid was thrown into his face as he was enjoying a walk in woodland.

It is feared the 16-year-old could be permanently disfigured after suffering severe burns to his face, including his eyes, and upper body.

The unnamed boy is being treated at a specialist hospital in London with his parents at his bedside.

A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said it was ‘too early for prognosis’ and that they are still investigating what the acid was and what container it had been in.

Two men have been arrested by detectives investigating the chemical attack, which happened in darkness as the boy walked near woods in his hometown of Yateley, near Farnborough, Hampshire.

The 46-year-old man from Yateley and a 33-year-old man from Farnborough have been released on bail pending further inquiries.

 

Police denied the attack was a drug deal gone wrong or over a financial matter or girl. They confirmed the young victim was white and British.

Paramedics were called to the scene and gave the boy immediate treatment for the facial injuries before he was rushed to hospital.

The teenager, who has not been named by police, was left writhing in agony on the pathway as the acid burnt through his clothes and skin.

The attackers, who were wearing dark clothes, ran off before emergency services arrived.

A spokesman for Hampshire Police said that the attacker was a stranger to the teenager, but added it was not a random incident.

The Acid Attack on Reyhan K.

Gates of Vienna:

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Reyhan K., victim of acid attackLast week a young woman named Reyhan K. was subjected to a devastating acid attack at her residence in Germany. She and one of her attackers are of Turkish origin; the other suspect is Syrian.

Our Canadian correspondent Rembrandt Clancy sends a summary of press reports about the incident, including updates from Express.de dated 1 January 2013, and WAZ on 2 January 2013, along with video material. As background for the case, he sends a video by Sabatina James entitled “Women in Islam, Equal Rights or Oppressed?”

He includes this note:

Just a point: The modus operandi of this case has a striking similarity to that of the case of the model and TV presenter, Katie Piper, in 2009 in North London. Her ex-boyfriend, Daniel Lynch put Stefan Sylvester up to throwing the acid. Although this was a brown-on-white attack, I have not been able to discover the origins of the perpetrators.

All the translating and subtitling of this material was done by Rembrandt Clancy.

The Acid Attack on Reyhan K.
by Rembrandt Clancy

The Gates of Vienna news feed of 30 December 2012 made reference to an acid attack on a young Turkish woman in Germany.

The essentials of the press reports of the acid attack on Reyhan K. can be summarised as follows: Twenty-year-old Reyhan K., a Turkish immigrant woman who lives in Hilden near Düsseldorf in North Rhein-Westphalia, has landed in a special clinic in Duisburg with severe burns to her face and body. On Saturday morning, December 29, 2012, the doorbell rang at the residence of Reyhan’s grandparents. A man in disguise quickly sprayed the young woman twice in the face and body with a fluid which turned out to be sulphuric acid. He then fled the scene without having said a word.

A few hours after the attack, police arrested a former boyfriend, a 22-year-old Turkish man by the name of Serhat K. During interrogation the suspect admitted having incited a younger 18-year-old male accomplice to carry out the attack. The name and other background information of this individual does not appear to be available at this point, although the video included here identifies him as Syrian. On the day of the crime he turned himself in to Düsseldorf police in the company of his lawyer.

Here is the news report from Westdeutsche Rundfunk (WDR) of 30 December 2012:

Examination of many media sources failed to turn up any mention of Islam in connection with this crime, although all the principals appear to originate from the Islamic cultural sphere, and the circumstances of the event suggest a crime of the “honour” type.

Survivor: Nurbanu's husband threw acid in her face eight days after she divorced him for being unfaithfulSurvivor: Nurbanu’s husband threw acid in her face eight days after she divorced him for being unfaithful

This woman’s horrific scars serve as a cruel and permanent reminder of the moment her husband of 18 years flung acid into her face.

Nurbanu had divorced her unfaithful and violent spouse after catching him with another woman.

Eight days later, she was cooking at home in Bangladesh when he pulled up on a motorbike and doused her with acid, leaving her blind and disfigured.

The 36-year-old now has to endure living with her former spouse again after his mother forced her to sign an affidavit to have him released from prison following the attack.

Nurbanu’s husband of 18 years went into hiding after mutilating his former wife, but was caught ten months later and jailed for a year, according to a report on The Huffington Post.

‘His mother paid for his release on bail,’ said Nurbanu, who is from Satkhira in south west Bangladesh.

‘She made me sign an affidavit to have him released. She used my sons to convince me to marry him again.

‘People would think a husband would take care of a blind wife. But this doesn’t happen,’ Nurbanu said.

She also said her spouse continues to beat and threaten her, adding: ‘This is how my days go by.’

Nurbanu, who is unable to even prepare a meal for herself following her husband’s devastating attack, is one of thousands of women to fall victim to acid violence in Bangladesh in recent years.

“I cannot sleep and whenever I shut my eyes, I see Anusha’s burnt face…”

Less than a week ago the life of Pakistani teen Anusha Akhtar was snuffed out.

The death of a child is always heart-wrenching, but when killed at the hands of her own parents, that makes the death horrific.

As previously reported by Examiner.com, Anusha’s father, Mohammed Zafar, and her mother, Zaheen Akhtar, were arrested for pouring acid on their daughter for reportedly “standing too close to a boy.”

To further enrage the parents, they later caught Anusha later “looking at two boys.”

Reportedly, her father beat her, then her mother assisted while the father poured acid on her for bringing dishonor on the family.

Only a day later did the parents take the child to a hospital where she eventually died of her acid-caused injuries.

A 26-year-old woman horrifically burned in an acid attack has spoken out about her trauma as she re-builds her life in Houston, Texas.

Julie Aftab was 16 and working in an office in Pakistan when a man walked in and asked her if she was Christian, spotting a small cross she wore around her neck.

She replied that yes, she was and the man became abusive, shouting at her that she was living in the gutter and would go to hell for shunning Islam.

He left and returned half an hour later, clutching a bottle of battery acid which he savagely chucked over her head. As she ran screaming for the door a second man grabbed her by the hair and forced more of the liquid down her throat, searing her esophagus.

 

 

Teeth fell from her mouth as she desperately called for help, stumbling down the street.

A woman heard her cries and took her to her home, pouring water over her head and taking her to hospital.

At first the doctors refused to treat her, because she was a Christian. ‘They all turned against me,’ she told the Houston Chronicle.

‘Life is such a blessing': The incredible bravery of Pakistani women who suffered horrific acid attacks in the name of ‘family honour’

After six years of abuse, Allah Rakhi was walking out of her marriage when her husband struck again. Snatching a knife, he sliced off her nose. ‘You’re no longer beautiful!’ he shouted.

He then slashed at her foot – brutal punishment for leaving the house without his permission.

‘A woman is only a woman inside the home, outside she’s a whore!’ he yelled at Rakhi as she lay bleeding on the dusty street just outside her home.

That was 32 years ago.

While the details of every case of violence against Pakistani woman differ, many are based on a concept of ‘family honor.’

Women can be targeted for suspicion of an affair, wishing to divorce or dressing inappropriately. Hundreds women are murdered each year because of mere suspicions.

The nose is considered the symbol of family honor in Pakistan – explaining why a woman’s nose is often the target of spousal abuse. A popular plea from parents to children is ‘Please take care of our nose,’ which means, ‘don’t do anything that tarnishes the reputation of the family.’

Rooted in tribal ideas that a woman’s chastity is the property of the man, honor killings are practiced in much of the Arab world and South Asia. They have also been carried out by immigrants from those regions to the West.

Pakistani courts have a history of letting off offenders or giving them only light punishment, assuming the cases get to trial at all.
