Treatment of Muslim Women


Taliban executes woman 1999

KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) – Thousands of people watched as a woman, cowering beneath a pale blue all-enveloping burqa, was shot and killed today in the first public execution of a woman in Kabul since the Taliban religious army took control three years ago.   The woman, identified only as Zarmeena, a mother of seven children, was found guilty of beating her husband to death with a steel hammer as he slept. 

According to a RAWA reporter, Zarmeena’s children and the family of Zarmeena’s husband were present in the stadium and all of her children were crying loudly for their mother. Several minutes before the execution, her husband’s family announced to the Taliban that they forgave Zarmeena. But the Taliban said that it was impossible to stop the execution because they had already announced it to thousands of people. Islamic law allows the family to forgive the killer but the Taliban did not pay any attention to the law.

RIFQA BARY – STAY OF EXECUTION of a 17-year-old girl story and video here

Faces Honor Killing.  Her crime?  Converting to Christianity.

Excerpt

The young woman in question is Rifqa Bary, a seventeen-year-old from a family of Sri Lankan expatriates who are part of a Muslim community near Columbus, Ohio that is dominated by the Noor Islamic Cultural Center.  This mosque is renowned for its adherence to the brutally intolerant and repressive theo-political-religious program authoritative Islam calls Shariah.  In fact, counter-terrorism expert Patrick Poole has described the Noor Center as “the premier source of Islamic extremism” in Central Ohio.

According to Shariah, it is impermissible to leave the faith:  Those who convert have engaged in “apostasy,” a capital offense.  As Ms. Bary says she embraced Christianity four years ago, she is– in the words of Tom Trento, a formidable anti-Shariah activist who runs the Florida Security Council– “Dead Girl Walking.”

Pamela Geller’s terrific web site, AtlasShrugs, reports that Rifqa Bary was brutalized by family members even before they discovered that she had converted.  But when the family learned, apparently from others associated with the Noor mosque, that the girl was an apostate, she says her father erupted: “If you have this Jesus in your heart, you’re dead to me. You’re not my daughter. I will kill you.”
