Decision followed demand by the Kingdom’s top Islamic scholar
Saudi Arabia has told its hospitals to prevent male doctors from checking dead women following a demand by the Gulf Kingdom’s top Islamic scholar.
Sheikh Abdul Aziz Al Shaikh, Saudi Arabia’s grand Mufti, sent a letter to the health ministry asking it to ensure male doctors at all hospitals in the country of 29 million people will not be allowed to check dead women either in medical or criminal cases.
<b<“The Mufti made clear that the body of a woman whether alive or dead must be respected and should not be seen by males,” </b>Arar newspaper said.
It quoted health ministry undersecretary Abdul Aziz Al Humaidi as saying the ministry had sent a circular to all hospitals upon receiving the Mufti’s letter.
“We have asked all hospitals and medical centres in the Kingdom to ensure that dead women would be checked only by female doctors,” he said.
ISLAMABAD: After 23 years, the Federal Shariat Court (FSC) has issued orders to remove the provision of life-imprisonment from the blasphemy law, stating that only death is punishment for blasphemy and sought a report from the government for implementation of the order within a couple of months.
4. Some discussion on the early home of the Catholic church, the Hagia Sophia, being turned into a mosque only. (Frankly, this should be grounds for war in the conventional sense. But the West has lost its compass. The video fails to mention that it was the original ‘Vatican’ built in the city named after the first pope, Constantine)
5. So how is it in Pakistan?
6. People in the area in Australia where the muslim mass mosque stabbing took place (classic islamic alliteration there) say that it is common for many cars in the area to sport Muslim -Brotherhood stickers in the windows and its not a good area for non-believers to visit.
***UPDATE*** The attacker asked everyone at the mosque if they were “Jewish” before he went on a stabfest. The article just says racist remarks after that but I bet we know what kind.
Thank you M, Richard, Fluffi and all who sent in material.
