“Feminist Hero” murdered by her brothers in Pakistan

A belief system that calls the murder of an unarmed woman an “honour killing” is a belief system that has no honour.  A legal system that allows murderers to escape justice if a family member forgives them, also has no honour. The latest woman murdered in the Islamic country of Pakistan described herself as a modern-day feminist.

“As women we must stand up for ourselves. As women, we must stand up for each other,” she told her 758,000 followers on Facebook, days before her death.

There is clearly no place for feminism in a society with a misogynistic legal system and misogynistic beliefs. Fauzia Azeem, like many Muslim women before her, has learned this the hard way – sadly. I wonder when Western feminists will finally get it? Islam is incompatible with feminism. The Muslim women in the West who claim to be feminists while wearing their hijabs, only have the freedom to say those things because they live in the relative safety of the West. It isn’t Islam that gives them feminist freedom, it is Western civilization.

She had to call her Ahmadi best friend an infidel to get a Pakistani passport

This is a post written by a Muslim woman who is best friends with a Muslim from the Ahmadiyya sect. The Islamic country of Pakistan does not recognise the Ahmadiyya as true Muslims so she was forced to make a choice.

If you are a conscientious , or if you don’t live under a rock, it is hard to ever forget or ignore the kind of infuriating discrimination and shameful persecution that members of the Ahmadiyya community suffer in our country.

You console yourself by thinking, “at least I personally don’t discriminate or persecute”.

And, if you’re outspoken, you think, “I won’t and don’t ever let it happen in front of me”.

But then, there is a point in time when you are forced by the lottery of birth, and the Constitution of Pakistan, to become party to the state-sponsored discrimination of Ahmadis.

This is the time when you go to perform a simple act of citizenship: get or renew a passport.

The last time I got a passport back home, I was able to duck the question: you know the one right at the end where you have to sign to attest to the accuracy of all information on your application form — and that Ahmadis are infidels.

There should be no compulsion in religion, but wait – what about Pakistan?

Islamic Pakistan:

  • Pakistan’s persecution of Christians escalates
  • Government makes Islamic study compulsory in all schools and colleges
  • Kidnapping, forced marriages and forced religious conversions of Christians
  • Blasphemy charges and violent assaults on Christians and their churches
  • British Pakistani Christian Association reports grave abuses of Christian communities.

Jewish Israel:

  • Religious tolerance
  • Compulsory military training for all Israeli citizens over the age of 18 who are Jewish, Druze or Circassian; other Arab citizens of Israel are not conscripted. Other exceptions are made on religious, physical or psychological grounds.

Pakistan was formed to give Muslims their own country  but, unlike Israel, they show no tolerance for other religions. Even compulsory military training in Israel doesn’t apply to everyone. In Pakistan, on the other hand, there is forced religious conversion to Islam and compulsory study of Islam in all schools and colleges. Clearly, the religion of peace as practised in Pakistan is not a tolerant religion and does not follow Islam’s own precept that there should be no compulsion in religion. The regular kidnapping, rape and forced marriage and conversion to Islam of young Christian girls is a horrific but common practice in Pakistan. They also have modern-day slavery, known as bonded labour in Pakistan, despite a 1992 law being passed against it.  Also practised in Pakistan is the payment of a Jizya tax (Islamic protection money), which is a payment demanded from non-Muslims living inside an Islamic State.

“The government of Pakistan has announced plans to force Islam on young people by making Quranic study compulsory for all school and college students, which is contrary to the country’s constitution and the Islamic precept that there should be no compulsion in religion. This is the latest escalation of the country’s bias against Christians, other minority faiths and non-believers,” said Peter Tatchell, Director of the human rights organisation, the Peter Tatchell Foundation.

“Beat me with your intelligence, if you may. Beat me with your wit. Beat me with your smile. Beat me with your kindness. But if you dare to beat me even with a feather, I’d really beat the shit out of you. With love,” says Sadiya Azhar. PHOTO: FANHAD RAJPER

In a world where modern day feminists seem more focussed on made up issues like microaggressions it is refreshing to see a legitimate feminist battle being fought.The women’s rights campaign was started by Pakistani photographer Fanhad Rajper, in response to a bill drafted in Pakistan that says that a husband can “lightly beat” his wife if needed. The bill was proposed by the Council of Islamic Ideology which is a constitutional body of clerics and scholars that advises the government. Part of Fanhad Rajper’s campaign is a social media campaign with the hashtag #TryBeatingMeLightly.

Some of the tweets are hilarious:

The Genocide of the Hindus, a story you haven’t heard about

I know very little about Pakistan. I recently learned during my visit to New Zealand’s largest mosque that many Ahmadiyya Muslims have been killed there and their worldly goods stolen without repercussions but other than that I knew nothing about the country.

Pakistan was carved out of India to create a Muslim country. In 1971, Muslims murdered 2.4 million Hindus and raped 200,000 Hindu women but in the West very few of us know about this attempted genocide.So why is it that we are so ignorant of these historical facts?

…The Israeli’s and Hindus are the largest victims of perpetual Islamic invasions and violence lasting for more than 1,000 years. Muhammad Ali Jinna, a member of the Indian National Congress and later of the All-India Muslim League (a Khilafat movement that also germinated the Palestine conflict), demanded a two-state partition, creating the Lahore Resolution, which formed the separate creation of Pakistan.

The only reason the refugee quota is back on the agenda is because Helen wants the top job

Helen Clark wants the top job at the UN…and I want her to get it too…so she doesn’t ever come home.

But it explains the full-court press by the left-wing and their enablers in the Media party for an increase in the refugee quota.

Clark will need the credit of NZ being seen to be doing something.

As Europe embarks on its first major, combined attempt to combat the migrant crisis, New Zealand has been urged to take more refugees.

Hundreds of asylum seekers have been deported from Greece overnight, sent back to Turkey as part of a deal that aims to ease mass migration to Europe.

It is Europe’s much-lauded solution to a migrant crisis the likes of which the world has never seen — refugees deemed illegal, deported at dawn and sent back to Turkey.

Anticipating trouble and violence, one guard was deployed for each of the 202 migrants.    Read more »


More Islamic terror against Christians

So much for peace and goodwill.

Another Islamic terror attack over night has killed Christian women and children celebrating Easter.

A suicide bomber has killed at least 65 people, mostly women and children, at a public park in the Pakistani city of Lahore, striking at the heart of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s political base of Punjab.

The blast happened in the parking area of Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, a few metres away from children’s swings. More than 280 people were injured in the explosion, officials said.

Local police chief Haider Ashraf said the area was crowded with Christians celebrating the Easter holidays on Sunday (local time), and many families were leaving the park when the blast occurred.

A Taliban faction has claimed responsibility for the attack, saying Christians were the target.

Treating women with respect is un-Islamic, says Pakistani religious body

While some Muslims claim acts of terrorism by Muslims have nothing to do with Islam, in Pakistan an Islamic group has declared that violence against women is very much Islamic. Yes, you read that correctly. Despite religious groups like the one in Pakistan being upfront and honest about Islamic law, the apologists of Islam will ignore it. All over the West, Imams in public, on You tube and in the media, have clearly stated Islam’s goal is to bring Sharia law to the west and to create an Islamic caliphate.

A powerful Pakistani religious body that advises the government on the compatibility of laws with Islam on Thursday declared a new law that criminalizes violence against women to be “un-Islamic.”

The Women’s Protection Act, passed by Pakistan’s largest province of Punjab last week, gives unprecedented legal protection to women from domestic, psychological and sexual violence. It also calls for the creation of a toll-free abuse reporting hot line and the establishment of women’s shelters.

The real Islamic states get together to combat Islamic terrorism

Window dressing or a genuine attempt at solving the problem?

Given Muslim nations tend to march backwards almost as fast as the French, especially when confronted with the IDF I don’t hold much promise in this.

Saudi Arabia has announced the formation of a 34-state Islamic military coalition to combat terrorism, according to a joint statement published on state news agency SPA.

“The countries here mentioned have decided on the formation of a military alliance led by Saudi Arabia to fight terrorism, with a joint operations centre based in Riyadh to coordinate and support military operations,” the statement said on Tuesday.

A long list of Arab countries such as Egypt, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, together with Islamic countries Turkey, Malaysia, Pakistan and Gulf Arab and African states were mentioned.   Read more »
