US: Judge considers that a Muslim can abuse his wife, because “his actions were consistent with his religious practices”

Husband beating his wife

This is worrying: this is no Islamist lunatic who says Sharia Law should be implemented in the US and that every woman should wear a burqa. No, this is a judge that considers that, above US law, there is another one: Sharia Law. At least, the ruling was overturned on appeal.

In S.D. v. M.J.R., the plaintiff, a Moroccan Muslim woman, lived with her Moroccan Muslim husband in New Jersey. She was repeatedly beaten and raped by her husband over the course of several weeks. While the plaintiff was being treated for her injuries at a hospital, a police detective interviewed her and took photographs of her injuries. Those photographs depicted injuries to plaintiff’s breasts, thighs and arm, bruised lips, eyes and right check. Further investigation established there were blood stains on the pillow and sheets of plaintiff’s bed.

The wife sought a permanent restraining order, and a New Jersey trial judge held a hearing in order to decide whether to issue the order. Evidence at trial established, among other things, that the husband told his wife, “You must do whatever I tell you to do. I want to hurt your flesh” and “this is according to our religion. You are my wife, I c[an] do anything to you.” The police detective testified about her findings, and some of the photographs were entered into evidence.

The defendant’s Imam testified that a wife must comply with her husband’s sexual demands and he refused to answer whether, under Islamic law, a husband must stop his sexual advances on his wife if she says “no.”

The trial judge found that most of the criminal acts were indeed proved, but nonetheless denied the permanent retraining order. This judge held that the defendant could not be held responsible for the violent sexual assaults of his wife because he did not have the specific intent to sexually assault his wife, and because his actions were “consistent with his [religious] practices.In other words, the judge refused to issue the permanent restraining order because under Sharia law, this Muslim husband had a “right” to rape his wife.

Pakistan: man kills six daughters for “honour”

In a shocking incident, a Pakistani man has gunned down his six daughters on suspicion that two of them were in relationships with boys in the neighbourhood. Arif Mubashir called his teenage daughters to his room and shot them while the rest of the family, including their mother, watched. His wife Musarrat called the police after the incident, the Express Tribune daily reported today.

Mubashir, a resident of Punjab province, shot the girls after their brother said two of them were in a relationship. He told police officials that he had killed his daughters because they were “without honour”. The man said his daughters Sameena, 14, and Razia, 16, were in a relationship with college boys from the neighbourhood and the sisters had helped each other. “I should have been told immediately but the girls sided with each other. They were both corrupt,” Mubashir told Tandlianwala Police Inspector Javed Sial.

Police officials have taken Mubashir into custody and filed a case against him. “He does not regret what he did. He boasted that he would do it all over again if he had to,” Sial was quoted as saying.

USA: Muslim woman says feds should force mosques to “end gender apartheid”

Asra Q. Nomani, a former reporter for The Wall Street Journal, argues that the Internal Revenue Service should move to deny tax-exempt status to any place of worship that holds to different roles for men and women. In “End Gender Apartheid in U.S. Mosques,” Nomani writes, “I’ve come to the difficult decision that women must use the legal system to restore rights in places of worship…”

“Nomani writes out of her own experience as a Muslim woman in the United States,” reports Mohler.

As she relates in her article, she has joined with a movement that has launched “Pray Ins” at several mosques in the Washington, D.C. area, protesting the practice of separating Muslim men and women for prayers.

Saudi Arabia: woman makes joke about leaving her husband, husband marries another woman

Sword Dance at a Saudi Wedding

An arrogant Saudi woman made the mistake of her life when she retaliated to a heavy joke by her husband with a much heavier one. The husband simply turned his joke into reality and married another woman.

The unnamed couple were visiting the wife’s family when her husband joked by telling her brothers that he would marry again.

“His wife joked back but it was a much heavier joke when she told him ‘I can kick you with my leg any time and marry another one with my money.”

“Her husband got furious and decided to marry another woman…her brothers tried to calm him down but he felt very offended,” Kabar newspaper said in a report from the capital Riyadh on Monday.

“The real joke is that he went ahead with the marriage and the brothers of his first wife paid all wedding costs….that wife paid a heavy price of her joke.”

India: Catholic bishops condemn sex-change operations for infant girls

The state of Madhya Pradesh in India

After gendercide, now they are changing sex on infant girls, because “boys are much more valued”:

The Indian episcopal conference has “strongly condemned” sex-change operations performed on infant girls at the request of their parents. In Indore–a city of 1.5 million in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh–some 300 girls under the age of one have reportedly been victims of the operation.

“We have strongly condemned, as Indian bishops, this horrible practice,” said Father Charles Irudayam, an official of the Episcopal Conference of India. “It is the result of a mindset that favors [the] male as a source of profit and as a son of greater value, mortifying the dignity of women.”

Iran: a rise in the number of gang rapes worries society

Not only Western women are subjected to gang rapes. Of course, “Iranian officials” say that this is because they don’t wear hijabs…, just as Australian imam El-Hilali.

Recent reports of gang rapes in Iran are worrying women and raising questions about social values, reports Mohammad Manzarpour of the BBC Persian Service.

In a religiously conservative town near the city of Isfahan, women at a private party were abducted last month and gang raped at knife point.

One week later, a female university student was attacked and raped by unknown assailants on the heavily-guarded campus in Masshad, a holy city.

In both cases, officials accused the victims of not wearing the hijab or headscarf in the proper fashion and general un-Islamic conduct.

These high-profile cases and the derogatory comments made by Iranian authorities have outraged women’s rights groups who have long complained of the increasingly high rate of sexual harassment.

As the stories dominate newspaper headlines, a political and public debate is raging about the reasons for the apparent rise in sexual crimes in the Islamic state and how to prevent and punish them.

Australia: niqab’d woman wins appeal against police for “mistaken identity”

Silk burqa, 2oth century

Image via Wikipedia

Because who can tell who is under a burqa? That’s of course, why she has a shocking record of driving offences and of not paying the fines:

 judge Clive Jeffreys said yesterday he was not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that it was Mrs Matthews who made the racism accusation because the person who complained to police was wearing a burqa at the time.

The absurdity of the law is that, to reach the level of proof of identity to make the case, Mrs Matthews would have been required to identify herself by lifting her burqa at the police station – what started the uproar in the first place.

More than a dozen Muslim supporters linked arms and began chanting “Allah Akbar” as they stormed out of Downing Centre Court with Mrs Matthews concealed behind them.

Tempers rose and they began jostling with police after several members of the group attacked cameramen.

It marked a stark difference from their behaviour minutes earlier, when they had quietly assembled outside the lifts for prayer shortly after the judge’s decision.

Mrs Matthew’s lawyer Stephen Hopper (what a moron!) defended their actions saying: “They are obviously happy with the result and are expressing it in a way that is culturally appropriate to them.”

A really good reason for banning the burqa NOW. Because anyone who wants to commit some crime would just have to go covered by a burqa to avoid punishment.

Her husband has said that “she is very unhappy and that she doesn’t want to go outside (her home)”. Perhaps, Australian roads are much more safer now.

He is no “saint”, either: Continue reading

Or could it be she wanted some Vitamin D?

“A Jordanian study published this week asserted that 87% of women between the ages of 18 and 70 in Jordan suffer from a lack of Vitamin D as a result of insufficient sun exposure and not enough milk consumption. “

Insufficient sun exposure? Wow, must be the burqas, niqabs or something. Oh, wait, Muslim women (all of them) have huge gardens where they can have some sun exposure (in the comments)…

Yeah, right..

The case of Pakistani Catholic Farah Hatim

People are fearful for Farah Hatim, the Catholic girl abducted and forced to marry and then to convert to Islam in the city of Rahim Yar Khan in southern Punjab. According to Fides the girl’s family is concerned because Farah is constantly drugged and life-threatened. Yet authorities continue to discourage attempts by the family in its battle to request the release of Farah.

Yesterday Qasim Hatim and Huma, a brother and a sister of the victim, were summoned by local police to show them a marriage certificate, a declaration of conversion to Islam and a picture of Farah, with the traditional Muslim robes.

A man married to a Frenchwoman has been refused French citizenship because of his “degrading attitude” toward women.

The Algerian man’s application for French nationality was turned down because “his idea of sexual equality is not that of the republic,” a high-ranking official told French radio station Europe 1, the Guardian reports.

The man – eligible for French nationality as he had been married to a French citizen for more than four years – did not allow his wife to leave the family home freely, it is claimed.

Child brides

In India, the girls will typically be attached to boys four or five years older, an investigation in the June issue of National Geographic magazine has found. But in Yemen, Afghanistan, Ethiopia and other countries with even higher rates of marriage at an early age, the husbands may be young men, middle-aged widowers or even abductors who rape first and claim their victims as wives afterwards.

Spain: Moroccan sentenced to 27 years in prison after sexually assaulting a mentally retarded minor

Police is still searching for his brother:

The fourth section of the Provincial Court of Valencia has sentenced a 36 year old man of Moroccan origin to a total of 27 years in prison for three counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child under 16 years who suffered from a mentally retarded and who was held for three days in his house, located in the departure of the FOIA de La Pobla de Vallbona (Valencia). Furthermore, it should compensate the victim with 30,000 euros.

As recorded in the statement, dated May 9, 2011, the events occurred between 20 and 23 November 2007, when the accused invited the girl to get into his car and drove home, where she was held for three days and where both the offender and two other individuals, one of them being a brother of the accused, repeatedly kept full sexual relations with the child without her consent.

On September 23 the girl was released by the local police, after her mother had filed a complaint because of her disappearance. In the house were both the accused and his brother, who is currently missing.

Then the child was taken to the Hospital La Fe de Valencia, where she was assessed a probable mental retardation and showed the absence of injury. They also found a hair in the vaginal cavity, hair which may belong “to the brother of the accused or any person related to him by the mother. “

The sentence considers that there is sufficient evidence to consider fully proved that both the accused and his two collaborators committed a crime of continuous sexual abuse and unlawful restraint, taking advantage of her mental deficit “to satisfy their lustful desires“.

The police has increased security around Pilar Rahola after the journalist and author received death threats through a video posted on YouTube recorded by a band called “Islam“, as reported e-noticies.com -Death threats against Pilar Rahola-. The song reads, and repeatedly, “I will kill Pilar Rahola” and the recording uploaded to the Internet is accompanied by white photography and denied a woman completely covered by a burka.

She has already filed a complaint with the police.

UK: “No women in mosques, no sermons in English”

This has been the answer given by British Muslims to Minabe, the Advisory Council of Mosques and Imams, created after the attacks of 7 / J in London:

The women “should be home” and stay out of negotiations in the places of worship which, in fact, have even banned their entry. But Mohammed Nadeem’s opinion is not anecdotal nor reporters sought a refractory to illustrate his story.

Both the imams and the governing bodies of British mosques have flatly rejected the attempt by a semiofficial organization composed of Muslims who sought to foster the participation of women at least in the management of places of Islamic worship. It also wanted that at least sermons would be conducted in English and not Arabic.

… “From an Islamic point of view, prayer is invalid if it is not in Arabic. ” End of discussion. Or at least, end of discussion for most of British Islam, but also for the US. There, many young people born or grown from children in the U.S., coming from families who do not have Arabic as mother tongue are very reluctant to spend their time required to learn Arabic to recite.

… in Muslim communities, abandoning Arab language in cults is equated to an intolerable abandonment of Islamic identity. It’s about keeping the difference. And the difference is that it is read in Arabic, the language of Allah. and it also happens in the United States, where supposedly Islam is open to democracy and society in general.

So, who are isolating themselves? Who does not want to adapt to the country they live in? And why are the non-Muslims to blame for the results of this self-isolation?

Chechenya: women who drive face problems

It is not forbidden by law, as in Saudi Arabia. But in Chechnya the tradition prevents women from driving. The few who dare are some weirdos. Not to mention the shots of paint that have received some women for not covering the head with a veil.

… That standard is set, like everything in Chechnya, by Kadyrov, who heads the republic as if they were all his subjects. One of his first public remarks after being appointed prime minister in 2006 (he became president the following year) was to “encourage” women to cover their hair. Today, stories abound of women dismissed from their jobs for not reporting to work with a headscarf.

… In a report on the implementation of Islamic dress in Chechnya, published in March, Human Rights Watch wrote: “paintball attacks came several years ago in a quasi-official, though extra-legal,” campaign under “In Chechnya.

Kadyrov has also expressed its support for honor killings. After seven women’s bodies were found in a ditch on the road two years ago, said he probably had a “loose morals.” If a woman runs around and if a man runs around with her, both are dead. “

The last part of the “campaign of virtue“, according to several women and activists in Chechnya, are the plainclothed state agents, who, standing in the street corners, shout advice to women about dress and behaviour.

Arranged marriages in Spain?

Yes, they exist among Muslim immigrants. Of course, normally women who suffer them, do not report them to the police or the authorities. With a few exceptions such as this one:

Nadia E., is a 21-year-old who moved from Morocco to La Seu d’Urgell (Lleida) two years ago. She reported him to the police after she wasn’t allowed to leave home without the use of clothing that concealed her entire body. He didn’t let her learn Spanish either. They were two of the alleged impositions she suffered from her husband, whom she married in an arranged marriage by parents of both in their native country.

… The victim said in court that he controlled her every move, forcing her to tell him when she exited and entered home, where she was going to and the name of the people she was going to speak to. She said her husband controlled her even when she was going to buy bread and required her to have all the windows closed. She added that her husband insulted and slapped her on a regular basis. He once threatened to kill her also saying he was going to throw her from the balcony.
