Forced Conversions to Islam and Marriages for Pakistani Females

wedding-in-PakistanMovement for Solidarity and Peace in Pakistan (MSP) is issuing an appeal for action by releasing an investigative report detailing forced marriages and conversions of Christian girls and women in Pakistan.

[ . . . ]

The prevalence of forced conversion and marriage are difficult to accurately estimate due to reporting deficiencies and the complex nature of the crime. Estimates therefore range from 100 to 700 victim Christian girls every year (conservative estimates for Hindu girls are on the order of 300 per year).

MSP’s investigations find that cases of forced marriages/conversions follow a distinctive pattern: Christian girls — usually between the ages of 12 and 25 — are abducted, converted to Islam, and married to the abductor or third party.

Women Should Cease to Exist Says Council of Islamic Ideology

Anime style picture of womanThis is not a spoof.  This is the Islamic doctrine taken to its (il)logical conclusion in the Pakistani honor/shame misogynistic tribal society. 

The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) concluded their 192nd meeting on Thursday with the ruling that women are un-Islamic and that their mere existence contradicted Sharia and the will of Allah. As the meeting concluded CII Chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani noted that women by existing defied the laws of nature, and to protect Islam and the Sharia women should be forced to stop existing as soon as possible. The announcement comes a couple of days after CII’s 191st meeting where they dubbed laws related to minimum marriage age to be un-Islamic.

Officials told Khabaristan Today that the council members deliberated over various historic references related to women and concluded that each woman is a source of fitna http://www.yanabi.com/index.php?/topic/348387-what-is-the-meaning-of-fitna and a perpetual enemy of Islam. They also decided that by restricting them to their subordinate, bordering on slave status, the momineen and the mujahideen can ensure that Islam continues to be the religion of peace, prosperity and gender equality.

Giulio Rosati painting of a woman being sold into sex slavery by MuslimsA 16-year-old girl cried when she confronted her father and mother in court for pressuring her emotionally to sell her body for Dh16,000 in order to become rich and overcome poverty.

“My father sold my virginity because he wanted me to help our family not to stay poor anymore. He and my mother forced me to work in prostitution… I was coerced to yield because my father got angry when I first refused to sell my body,” said the tearful Pakistani teenager when she testified against her parents before the Dubai Court of First Instance.

The 16 year old stood face-to-face and testified about how her 38-year-old father, K.A., and her 35-year-old mother, S.K., exploited her sexually and coerced her [emotionally] to have sex with strangers.

With the parents looking down, the girl told presiding Judge Ezzat Abdul Lat: “We are poor and my father coerced me to come with him to Dubai… he told me that if I work in prostitution, we would become rich quickly. He first asked my mother to convince me, but I totally rejected. He became angry and spoke to me rudely. I was forced to accept because I was under severe emotional pressure especially when dad told me that we needed the money.”

Pakistanis for Child Brides and Polygamy

Muslim man and four wivesThe Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) on Tuesday ruled that Pakistani laws prohibiting marriage of underage children are un-Islamic.

At the end of its two-day session on Tuesday, the CII said that according to Islam there is no minimum age of marriage. Islam does not forbid marriage of young children, the council said. However, the rukhsati (consummation of marriage) is allowed only in the case that both husband and wife have reached puberty.

The CII’s ruling comes a day after its chairman, Maulana Muhammad Khan Sheerani said laws regarding second marriage of a man in the presence of the first wife were against religious principles.

“Sharia allows men to have more than one wife and we demand that the government should amend the law,” he told reporters after a CII meeting.

Pakistan’s Child Brides – OK in Islam

two-child-bridesOne sunny afternoon as she skipped home from school, Saneeda was accosted by her estranged father, who wanted to marry her to a man she’d never met to settle a debt of “honour”. She was five years old.

A few months earlier, Saneeda’s father Ali Ahmed had eloped with a girl from another valley. To avoid violent revenge from her family, he promised to give them his daughter and niece Sapna in marriage.

Offering young girls as brides in compensation to settle disputes persists in many areas of the country. In Saneeda’s home district of Swat, the practice is known as “swara”.

Government data show that it is on the rise in Swat, four years after an army operation ended the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s brutal two-year rule in the scenic valley once known as the “Switzerland of Pakistan”.

Nine cases were registered in the area in 2013, up from just one in 2012. Rights groups say the true number is much higher.

In Islam, it is permitted for a man of any age to marry a girl from the age of nine years since Mohammed, the perfect example of a Muslim man, married Aisha at six and consummated the marriage when she was nine.

Sunnah

The Prophet Muhammad is considered an example for Muslims to follow. His life example is known as the sunnah, and is a valid source of Islamic law. The things that the Prophet Muhammad said and did have been gathered together in texts called hadith.

Step daughters Refuse To Be Sold – Get Acid Thrown in their Faces

Kanwal, acid burn victim.A man in Pakistan’s Punjab province attacked his two young step-daughters with acid for refusing to marry men chosen by him, police said today.

Muhammad Aslam, a mason from Pattoki village, located 70 km from provincial capital Lahore, threw acid on his step-daughters Malaika, 19, and Javeria, 23, while they were asleep last night. Both victims were brought to Jinnah Hospital in Lahore, where doctors described their condition as critical.

Police said Aslam often quarrelled with his step-daughters on the issue of their marriage. “He wanted to marry them with men of his choice,” police official Bashir Ahmed said.

Aslam had allegedly accepted money from a man in his neighbourhood after promising to marry one of the step-daughters to him.

“When both girls refused the proposal, Aslam threw acid on them to teach them a lesson,” Ahmed said.

(h/t to The Religion of Peace)

Facial mutilation and disfigurement by acid attacks are common in Pakistan and Afghanistan. The wife or daughter or other female family member must be kept under control by the men, for the men’s honor is all placed in the sex of the female. If she remains pure, the family has honor.

The woman’s body, even her hair, is seen as so powerful that it must be covered up because the men seeing them can’t control their sexual urges. These men are still at the level of beasts that function totally on instinct. Pity them and pray for their evolution.

But what did these women do wrong? Dawn Perlmutter with the Middle East Forum  has done an outstanding job of defining, explaining and documenting the violent attributes of the honor/shame Islamic culture.

In “The Semiotics of Honor Killing and Ritual Murder” she explains that when the woman has broken the greatest tribal codes – disobeying the man – she must be punished to atone. So as punishment, her body is burned with acid as a symbolic “purification through fire” by the family that restores their honor. Since her face is the only part of the woman’s body that is seen publically, her scars are a visible sign of her dishonor to her community. Other girls see this and it is a deterrent for any disobedient actions.

Yes, what a horrible thing to marry for love. How could these young people do that to their family? Obviously they didn’t understand that the honor/shame culture trumps love and that marrying for love was a concept that is promulgated by the satanic Kafirs who are ignorant of the beauty of Islamic misogyny.

This is not sunnah. It is not in the Koran. But it is the result of a society that idolizes males and denigrates females. It is the result of the Arabization of Pakistani Muslims and ignorance of the honor/shame tribal civilization.
