2. China official says Islamists seek to ban laughter and crying

(Reuters) – The governor of China‘s restive far western region of Xinjiang wrote on Monday that Islamist militants were trying to ban laughter at weddings and crying at funerals, as he appealed to people to stamp out the “tumour” of extremism.

Xinjiang, resource-rich and strategically located on the borders of central Asia, has been beset by violence for years, blamed by the government on Islamist militants and separatists.


“They … push the banning of watching television, listen to the radio, reading newspapers, singing and dancing, not allowing laughter at weddings nor crying at funerals,” he added. “They force men to grow beards and women to wear the burkha.”

Extremists are also demanding that not only food, but also cosmetics, medicine and clothing be halal, and push the idea that government-subsidised housing is not halal and to be avoided, Bekri wrote.

  1. 1. Van der Graaf said he murdered Fortuyn to stop him from exploiting Muslims as “scapegoats” and targeting “the weak members of society” The judge must have agreed which is why he is getting out so soon.

    Face it guys we are legal targets now.

  2. I would say that the Uigars of western China are poor examples for the CJ. The Chinese strong armed their way into their land by population shift in order to exploit the natural resources, a typical Communist tactic, and then suppressed the dissent.
    There is no love lost for me re: Islam but, in this case we are talking about an indigenous population that was taken over by the Chinese at the barrel of a gun.
    I saw an interesting old TV documentary several months ago about western China. All the relics were Islamic.

  3. Thinking about it reminds me of the struggle in Ireland; a greater power coming in to exploit the native pop’s resources.

  4. Why does Britain need programs like this one? One has to keep “wondering.”

    Derby College tackles forced marriage (BBC, Apr 7, 2014)

    “A programme to tackle forced marriage and “honour” based abuse has been launched by an East Midlands further education college.

    Derby College is working with charity Karma Nirvana to train personal coaches and “safeguarding officers” to recognise and deal with the issue.

    Karma Nirvana has campaigned to make forced marriage a crime.

    The college will also hold awareness sessions for students, and publicise help lines that support victims.

    It is claimed as the first further education college in the UK to launch such a programme….”

  5. Babs:

    It would be fascinating to know how the muslims became dominant there. What they did to the previous occupants. How they treated their relics and so on.I know that Afghanistan was Buddhist and Hindu and Jewish at various times and through conversion and demography shifts took place. But only the muslims came in and killed masses, forced their religion and destroyed all traces of former organizational principles. This is a central dogma of Islam.

    I hear what you say about the Chinese. They did this in Tibet also. However in terms of quality of life as measured in freedoms, I think the chinese win over the Uigurs even if its a photo finish in some ways.

  6. If there is any justice in this World the bastard who shot Pym Fortuyn would not be just about to come out of jail. He would have been dropped through a trapdoor on the end of a rope years ago.

  7. Van der Graaf shot Fortuyn in the head from behind. Even armed, the killer didn’t have the grit to face his victim.

  8. UK court bans self-flagellation by mourners

    LONDON: The issue of Zanjeerzani (self-flagellation) in Britain has entered into uncharted waters after High Court’s Queen Bench Division issued injunction against [ twenty ] two British Pakistanis restraining them from entering or practicing Zanjeerzani at the Idara-e-Jaaferiya here in Tooting, Europe’s oldest Imambargah.

    The court made 20 British Pakistanis to sign an undertaking agreeing not to perform or encourage Zanjeer in or around the Idara premises.

    The 22 individuals were taken to the court by the trustees of the Idara-e-Jaaferiya after a prolonged and bitter dispute of the Idara with hundreds of Shia Muslim mourners who have wished to practice Zanjeer within the premises of the Idara.

    The High Court has told these individuals they face “contempt of court and may be imprisoned, fined or have their assets seized” if they breached the court injunction or the undertaking.

    The dispute between the community members and Idara started over the performance of Zanjeerzani which has been banned by the trustees in the mosque for “health and safety reasons because the practice involves blades, which cuts and can spill blood”.

    Mohammad Raza, President of the Idara, told The News that the Idara’s insurance provider has insisted that the mosque is not covered for Zanjeerzani and that the Idara would lose both the employers’ liability and public liability insurance should any person practise it inside or in the vicinity of the mosque and it was in the Idara’s and the community’s “best interests to prohibit the performance of Zanjeerzani”.

    He alleged that the banned individuals have engaged in “violent and disruptive tactics to perform and encourage Zanjeerzani in the Idara despite the ban”. He said that these individuals on 14 November 2013 (10 Muharram) without warning began to perform Zanjeerzani in the prayer space. “The carpets, curtains and walls were contaminated and thus needed to be cleaned using industrial methods in accordance with the Council’s strict guidelines.”

    He said that an application for court orders to be brought against 22 people was made because these individuals have been “persistently flouting” ban on the practice of zanjeerzani and have been encouraging others to flout the ban as well.

    When asked why the current committee felt the need to ban Zanjeerzani when it has been practiced for decades in the Idara without any issue, Raza said that the Idara was following the “UK law and the council’s policy guidance”. Zanjeerzani has been practiced at the Idara since it’s inception in the early 1970’s, originally being conducted in a basement room of one of founders’ homes alongside majaalis when the Idara-e-Jaaferiya was originally started in 1968.

    Speaking on behalf of the affected community members, Sharaz Mir told The News that the ban brought by the Idara was an attack on the beliefs of millions of those who believe in Zanjeerzani as part of their faith. He said the new Idara committee members “have tried to impose a differing ideology to that of the rest of the community”.

    He said: “There are roumours of converting the Idara into a faith school, selling the building for financial gain, the list goes on, but what is clear is that their differing school of thought mainly revolves around Azadari, namely ZanjeerZani. They have banned Zanjeer in the Idara under the illegitimate guise of Health & Safety and non-compliant Insurance. They have fragrantly and openly disagreed with the Head of Ulema Shia Europe and the respected Marja’s advice not to ban Azadari and take individuals to court to avoid Fitna within the community.

    He said that the Idara has the backing of an organization that has allegedly mocked Zanjeerzani, calling it a “barbaric act”, equating this form of Azadari to smoking drugs, and calling the Zanjeer a “weapon”. He said that the 22 individuals who have agreed to the courts undertaking will limit their Azadaari to exclude Zanjeerzani without compromise but there was no guarantee about those who have no court orders on them.

  9. Thankyou Martin for the post.
    Sharia Muslims remember their brother slain by the Sunnis.
    What’s to forget in this Religion of Mohammad-Tollerance?

    More to follow when Eeyor picks it up; where Western values are suddenly used to defend one side over the other.

  10. “Many of the male and female participants congregate in public for ceremonial chest beating (matam) as a display of their devotion to Imam Husayn and in remembrance of his suffering.[4] In some Shi’a societies, such as those in Bahrain, Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and Iraq, some male participants incorporate knives or razors swung upon chains into their matam. ” Wiki

  11. I’m so thrilled to see how Diversity has enriched our societies. More Please.

    Can we have MPs and congresspersons flagellate themselves for the fact that they were “not there”.

  12. Apr 8 2014 – Turkey opposition leader punched by assailant in parliament

    The leader of Turkey’s main opposition party was attacked as he entered parliament Tuesday by a stranger who punched and kicked him several times, local media reported.

    The assault occurred as Kemal Kilicdaroglu, the head of the secular Republican People’s Party (CHP), was heading to a weekly party meeting to assess results of local polls on Sunday that were handily won by the ruling Justice and Development Party.

    Kilicdaroglu’s bodyguards immediately overpowered the attacker, who was taken to a police station for questioning, the newspaper Radikal reported.

    The assailant was identified as 28-year-old Orhan Oven, reportedly a member of an ultra-nationalist organisation who has been convicted in the past of several charges including an armed attack.

    “I had set my mind to punch (Kilicdaroglu). I waited for him to enter (the parliament) and punched him at the first opportunity,” Oven was quoted as saying. He did not explain his motive.

    After the assault, Kilicdaroglu addressed lawmakers and said he would not be bowed by violence.

    Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan condemned the attack as “unacceptable” in a democratic system.

  13. Thank you again, Martin. What’s the one called when you beat the child in the Madrassa who won’t memorize the Qu’ran? Oh, that’s right, in social work speak, “difficult”, the child doesn’t want to learn.

  14. “(I am all for letting Pim Fortyne’s killer out of jail. Just as soon as he can find a way to bring Pim back from the dead)”

    I’m more concerned whether the murderer had come back from the dead. Otherwise he’ll receive a hero’s welcome and dine with the Queen, the dhimmitude fawning towards such a person rather than themselves change. Moral Relevatism in practice.

  15. Europe made a real big mistake when they banned the death penalty, now that crime is coming home to roost on the descendents of the criminals.

  16. I know, that is why I said it was a crime against humanity and that the descendents of the criminals are now paying the price with a much more dangerous society.
