Not again...Father guns down 6-daughters in Islamic "honor killing"

While the tragedy in Norway happened by a lone wolf - let's not forget the true horrors of Islam. Please tell me people - when does something like this happen among Christians? Let's not be politically correct in realizing the real threats facing humanity as a whole is not "Christian" or "right-wing" terror but Islamic terror...

Honour killings: Man guns down six daughters

A man gunned down six of his daughters on suspicion that two of them were in relationships with boys in the neighbourhood.

On Tuesday morning, 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.

Mubashir 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 both “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 told reporters.

Pakistan has repeatedly been termed as one of the least women-friendly countries. In June, the Thompson Reuters Foundation ranked Pakistan as the world’s third most dangerous country for women.

This article makes me think of those atheists who feel that it's racist or hate-mongering to hammer away at all these insane symptoms of Islamic influence on the mindset of Muslims and the cultures of Islamic countries.  How can anybody make excuses for the misogynistic male domination of Muslim men?  Why don't we see more criticism from feminist atheists?

I consider myself a freedom-loving democrat who has moved to the political center over the years.  But the deafening silence of feminist atheists suggests to me that they're more liberal than they are feminist, atheist, or democrat.  The liberal desire for inclusion is a noble ideal and has led to reforms in race and gender discrimination.  But common sense tells me that being "liberal for liberal's sake" contradicts the values such liberals are supposed to hold dear.  What's not to criticize -- and criticize loudly -- about all the misogynistic realities of everyday life for Muslim women?

It's about time someone stood up to their bratty teenagers. I for one am appalled that they would do this to their father. I mean if I had a nickle for...

...oh, crap. I may have missed the point of the article.

You beat me to the punch.

And if memory serves the inquistion did not officially end until near the end of the 19th century-not so long ago. The explanation I have for the severity of Islam today compared to Christianity today is the diminution in power of the latter and the failure of modernity to impact the former.

But christianity is anything but benign. And as I pointed out in Africa where its power is great we have parents who murder their children.

And political ideologies are explosive whenever blind observance and suspension of rationalism occurs.

Islam is a very true religion of the world but its also a bad true that many people are misusing the religion in wrong way on the name of Allah.

Its really very miserable condition and we are doing nothing  except discussing..its the time to do something...its not only the duty of a Muslim but creating the peace in all over the world is the responsibility of all of us.

So we have to create the unity between all of us to make this world peace full.

Just come & participate to act your part.

Pakistan already posesses nuclear weapons, and it scares the bejesus out of me to think that such a backward national has such power to destroy.  It's only a matter of time before it chooses to use that power, or that power somehow gets into the wrong hands.  Hands with a mind controlled by a violent religion hell-bent on world domination.

But it is true Christianity of today has become mostly benign - again, my fight is against all religion but what makes me sick are those atheists who are using last week's tragedy to make the claim "Christian terrorists pose the same threat as Islamic terror" - which is just false, naive, and a threat to the rest of us who see the very real dangers Islamism poses to humanity in the 21st century - particularly should an Islamic Republic acquire nuclear weapons.

I was reminded of that quote by someone else on this site. It stayed with me since I first saw the paintings.
