The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) is reporting on a particularly disturbing string of events throughout Pakistan that neither the Pakistani government nor the international community seem in a hurry to condemn.

Not content with terrorizing women with the threat of honor killings, it seems, a Pakistani cleric in the Baluchistan province has issued a fatwa declaring that any woman using a cell phone can justifiably be attacked with acid, while former Pakistani lawmaker and prominent cleric Maulana Abdul Haleem announced that secular women working with NGO’s can be captured and forcibly “married” to local men if they dare work on women’s education, health, or welfare projects in the district of Kohistan.

Whether the women would be trapped there indefinitely in the conventional meaning of “marriage,“ or if it would be a ”temporary marriage” that sometimes enables affairs, prostitution, or worse, is unclear.

And according to MEMRI, Maulana Abdul Haleem is not just any cleric and former lawmaker.

“A member of the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) party, [he] is known to have nurtured a generation of Islamic clerics in Pakistan.  In 2002 he was elected a Member of the National Assembly, the lower house of the parliament, from the platform of Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal (MMA), an alliance of religious-political parties cobbled together at the behest of then-Pakistani military ruler General Pervez Musharraf.”

The cleric’s other accomplishments, according to a Pakistani daily, include declaring poppy cultivation in Kohistan to be “in accordance with Islam.”

  1. This is only a band-aid to the situation, but do these women know that chocolate stops acid in its tracks? maybe they need to all carry some chocolate bar like others carry pepper spray.

    I don’t know.

  2. By stating that women shouldn’t have an education, they do TAKFIR on Saudi-Arabia and Iran, whether they realize it or not.

    If certain muslims continue to threaten to kidnap women, sooner or later someone will kidnap THEIR women, and “marry” them.

  3. Time for us to do two things … first, re-read Pope Benedict XVI’s Regensburg Address … just google and find it. There’s an easily read version on ewtn, one page. One quote from the address: Violence is incompatible with the nature of God and the nature of the soul.

    The second thing is to counter the islamic practice of 5-a-day prayers with prayers of our own … not just any prayer but the “Our Father” or “Lord’s Prayer” as it is sometimes called. And not just ‘think-praying’ but speaking it, even if in a whisper, five times a day. Why out loud? Because sound waves never end … and sound waves are used to crack stone … they rattle windows like a sonic boom. Whose windows are we rattling? Lucifer … Satan … the enemy, the devil … and if thousands or hundreds of thousands or millions of us speak the Our Father out loud five times a day, we will cause such panic in hades/hell and we will cause Lucifer to have to cover his ears … And whose stone do we wish to crack? The stony hearts who are at odds with our Liberties, with our Constitution, with our ‘Truth, Justice and the American Way.’

    What can it hurt … if you’re not a Christian, you can still say the words as they are ‘universal’ in nature …
    Our Father, Who art in heaven
    Hallowed be Thy Name;
    Thy kingdom come,
    Thy will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread,
    and forgive us our trespasses,
    as we forgive those who trespass against us;
    and lead us not into temptation,
    but deliver us from evil. Amen.

    [Some would add at the end:
    or thine is the kingdom,
    The power, and the glory,
    For ever and ever.

  4. I agree. Religion is the solution to Islam. Do not hesitate to tell Muslims that they are on their way to eternal damnation. The proof is the civil war in Syria.

  5. @Ahmad..let’s see…I should willingly join a cult that hates women, abuses children, and will instantly make me one-fourth a person owned by someone else, subject to abuse or death, not to mention the other wives I never asked for…uh…no, thanks.

  6. Muslims do have a system of respect, mannerisms, conduct, some may call it “honour”. Its values we hold dear and we will hold onto. Go out on a friday night and look at how the English girls behave, drunk, vomiting on the streets, stumble around as they are so intoxicated, do you think this is how Muslims want to behave? Not at all. Its not just Muslims who live by this code of “izzet”, most south asians, orientals, africans hold similar values. I am proud of these values, and proud to say yes, honour is important to me and my family. As for honour killings, these are rare and completely unjustified. But when you talk of honour, trust me when I say honour and izzet is important to many.

    The number of ‘native’ British women killed by their native British husbands in domestic violence absolutely swamps the number of ‘honour killings’. But ‘honour killings’ in the Asian community is given all the attention. British families would give the same responses if you asked ‘would you be tempted to take action if someone had raped your daughter?’. Thus ‘proving’ that most Brits approve of honour killings. Violence against women in one form or another is cross cultural. One only needs to look at the domestic violence statistics. And not to forget that domestic violence against men is quite common too, but not spoken off. This is yet another bash the Muslims article and then everyone wonders why the community feels so alienated. All those who are making references to Islam with respect to honour killings I would just like to point out that it is not an Islamic issue. Honour killings have a cultural basis NOT RELIGIOUS!! the concept of bringing dishonour on the family is a cultural one totally. And honour killings are prevalent amongst all ethnic minorities amongst them are SIKHS, HINDUS, BHUDDISTS, etc!! Stop making Islam a scapegoat!

    The one in 5 (not two thirds) agree that they should live by ‘izzat’ which is morals and respect NOT honour based violence. Anyone who thinks this is wrong is a binge drinking, uneducated, moral-less fool whose opinions most Muslims couldn’t care less about.
    Living by honour is a good thing. Everyone has some honour in thier families

    To be fair, 1 in 5 people from any race, class, grouping or nation will probably be in favour of some sort of violence against people who break a traditional social norm, like wanting to remove the queen, enjoying recreational drugs, falsely claiming benefits. Just saying, every group of people has those that tend towards violence when everyone else thinks it’s a bad idea. Easy for English people to say all they do is sleep around and get wasted when weekend comes, majority of ur children are without parents. Filthy people don’t judge Muslims way of life.

    Also the term ‘honour’ can refer to a great many things ranging from not getting knocked up outside of marriage to living your life according to a set moral standards…respect, helping others, charity…these all fall under Asian honour code. As a muslim, we have a duty to preserve honour in the family in what ever means necessary. Violence should be last resort but can be done if no alternative. Honour allows family members and people to act respectfully and honorably and know the consequences if they didnt. Anyone who doesnt cannot love their family enough

    Honour killing and female infanticide come from Pagan-Hindu-Judeo-Christian traditions. Hindus idolise women as Goddesses on one hand, while downgrading them on the sly at the same time. There is nothing in the Holy Quran and the Hadiths that may encourage people to kill their daughters. Infact, Islam came to abolish the dark ages of Pagan- Hindu –Judeo- Christian traditions. Islam is a matter of choice and there is no compulsion at all. It is a misconception that forced marriage and honour killing are part of Muslim culture. Forced marriage, honour killing and genital mutilation are rare practices among migrant communities. Muslim migrants are worried about institutional racism, binge drinking, drug addiction, incivility, gun and knife crimes, high rate of abortions and teen age pregnancies. An average of 20 English girls under the age of 16 falls pregnant every day. Muslim parents do not want their children to be integrated into such barbarity. Muslim women feel torn between two cultures, thanks to the British education system with non-Muslim monolingual teachers. It makes their lives very confusing.

    Plenty of women have been killed in the UK by men and others, for various reasons. How many articles have been on here about men killing their wives and children for wanting a divorce? How many men have killed their girlfriends or wives for cheating on them? One too many. Those are also all the same. The skin colour of the perpetrator or victim doesn’t change the category of crime. ALL murders have a motive, and you’ve been dealing with domestic violence for centuries now. Why more outraged over this but not the others? Are the other victims less worthy of attention just because they were killed by “white British” people?

    A girl murdered by her boyfriend, happens all over the World, how is that a honour killing? Will you please stop calling murder honour killing

    Western media please do not use the term ‘honour killing’. Thee is nothing to honour in murder.

  7. Why would anyone leave a true religion to join a murderous cult? All you have to do is read the Bible and the Koran (in chronological order) to see that the Koran is a very poor ripoff of the Bible. One that was done by a nut that wanted to make money and get women by starting a religion.

  8. “How many men have killed their girlfriends or wives for cheating on them? One too many. Those are also all the same. ”

    I admit, that would be honor-killing by non-Muslims.

  9. Columnist:

    Not even remotely the same. There is a critical difference between a crime, and policy. Of course, thanks to moral relativism people are no longer capable of seeing it. But here is an illustration.

    When a Muslim murders his daughter for a crime against islam, they throw him a party. In civilization, when a man murders his lover for infidelity, we throw him in jail. See the difference?
