40 Women Killed for 'Violating' Islamic Teachings...

Religious vigilantes have killed at least 40 women this year in the southern Iraqi city of Basra because of how they dressed, their mutilated bodies found with notes warning against "violating Islamic teachings," the police chief said Sunday.

Maj. Gen. Jalil Khalaf blamed sectarian groups that he said were trying to impose a strict interpretation of Islam. They dispatch patrols of motorbikes or unlicensed cars with tinted windows to accost women not wearing traditional dress and head scarves, he added.

"The women of Basra are being horrifically murdered and then dumped in the garbage with notes saying they were killed for un-Islamic behavior," Khalaf told The Associated Press. He said men with Western clothes or haircuts are also attacked in Basra, an oil-rich city some 30 miles from the Iranian border and 340 miles southeast of Baghdad.

    This is not something happened in accordance with the Islamic teachings. This punishment cannot be given for not wearing the Hijab. So this action is unislamic. Islam has nothing to do about this.

    I challenge anyone to show evidence from the Qur'an or any authentic hadith which prescribe this punishment!!

    Therefore it is very foolish on your part to post these kind of news involving some ignorant Muslims to give a wrong picture about Islam. This also shows that you fail to show any fault in Islam so you go on attacking Islam by bringing these kinds of news! Shame...shame..

  2. i am only trying to point out ignorant Muslims so that more people do not do this kind of thing

    By bringing these kind of news we can stop some ignorant Muslims

    please help fight this kind of cruelty

    I thank for ur good job, if this is ur intention! But why are you always posting news involving Muslims? ARE YOU TRYING TO SAY THAT IT IS ONLY MUSLIMS WHO DO THESE KINDS OF REPREHENSIBLE ACTIONS?

    Your intention maybe good when you post the news, however I see nothing but ur hypocracy when u slander Islam while commeting!

    Why don't you bring the news about inhuman teachings of the Bible?(such fingering daughters vaginas, punishing rape victims etc..?)

    Recently there was a news that some one chopped off his own
    penis to follow this biblical teaching!

    Bible...Gouge out Your Eye "If your right eye causes you to
    sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to
    lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be
    thrown into hell." Matthew 5:29

    Bible...Cut your Right Hand "And if your right hand causes you
    to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to
    lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into
    hell." Matthew 5:30

    Bible...Cut Your Foot "If your hand or your foot causes you to
    sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to
    enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire." Matthew 18:8

    Why don't you post these kinds of interesting news as well?

    I know the reason why the religion haters single out Islam.

    Because those ones who hates and are jealous of the religion of
    Islam, for jealousy and hatred only come to a person when he
    sees an obvious blessing, which gives rise to hatred and envy
    in his heart. When those who came up with this claim saw the Muslims and the obvious blessings that they enjoy such as peace of mind and tranquility of heart, and the rare occurrence among the Muslims of evils such as adultery and alcohol consumption, and the low numbers of Muslims afflicted by physical and mental diseases which are rampant among them (the non-Muslims), such as AIDS and other illnesses, and when they saw the glowing history of the Muslims and how they were masters of the world
    when they adhered to Islam, and other manifest blessings to which everyone attests, and they saw how many people were becoming Muslim every day throughout the world, that upset them and they feared the spread of Islam, but they could not resist it except by using the feeble trick of slander.

    So continue with your fruitless work! Your thirst will only continue to grow in this world and in the hereafter you will be the amoung the losers!

    As for those who disbelieve, their deeds are like a mirage in a
    desert. The thirsty one thinks it to be water, until he comes up to it, he finds it to be nothing, but he finds Allah with him, Who will pay him his due (Hell). And Allah is Swift in taking account. [An-Noor 24:39]

    Today you can easily say that I don't believe in the Hereafter, but if there is (surely there is) Hereafter without doubt you will be amoung the losers!! Think once more! Death is near! Open your eyes and see the reality! When you die is the end of the game?
