Pakistani Christian burned alive, wife raped by police for refusing to convert to Islam

The Qur’an says there is “no compulsion in religion (“ingen tvang i religionen”, et Medina-vers (2:256)) but Islamic law and the Qur’an itself are actually full of subtle and not-at-all-subtle means of coercion of non-believers (e.g., dhimmi status, the jizya tax, and of course, warfare). Add to that a situation where authorities, steeped in hatred of unbelievers (jfr. 98:6, et Mecca-vers med ganske andre boller på suppen) are not accountable, and this is what happens.

002.256 (Mecca):
YUSUFALI: Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.
PICKTHAL:
There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth distinct from error. And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath grasped a firm handhold which will never break. Allah is Hearer, Knower.
SHAKIR:
There is no compulsion in religion; truly the right way has become clearly distinct from error; therefore, whoever disbelieves in the Shaitan and believes in Allah he indeed has laid hold on the firmest handle, which shall not break off, and Allah is Hearing, Knowing.

098.6 (Medina):
YUSUFALI: Those who reject (Truth), among the People of the Book and among the Polytheists, will be in Hell-Fire, to dwell therein (for aye). They are the worst of creatures.
PICKTHAL:
Lo! those who disbelieve, among the People of the Scripture and the idolaters, will abide in fire of hell. They are the worst of created beings.
SHAKIR:
Surely those who disbelieve from among the followers of the Book and the polytheists shall be in the fire of hell, abiding therein; they are the worst of men.

Om Mecca– og Medina-versene: Mecca-versene er kronologisk senere og meget mere krigeriske end de tidligere Medina-vers. Desværre står koranen ikke nedskrevet i kronologisk rækkefølge. Hvis man vil læse koranen kronologisk, skal man læse den i denne rækkefølge:

Sura 96, 74, 73, 93, 94, 113, 114, 1, 109, 112, 111, 108, 104, 107, 102, 92, 68, 90, 105, 106, 97, 86, 91, 80, 87, 95, 103, 85, 101, 99, 82, 81, 84, 100, 79, 77, 78, 88, 89, 75, 83, 69, 51, 52, 56, 53, 70, 55, 54, 37, 71, 76, 44, 50, 20, 26, 15, 19, 38, 36, 43, 72, 67, 23, 21, 25, 17, 27, 18, 32, 41, 45, 16, 30, 11, 14, 12, 40, 28, 39, 29, 31, 42, 10, 34, 35, 7, 46, 6, 13, 2, 98, 64, 62, 8, 47, 3, 61, 57, 4, 65, 59, 33, 63, 24, 58, 22, 48, 66, 60, 110, 49, 9, 5.)

RAWALPINDI, PAKISTAN (BosNewsLife)– A Christian man was fighting for his life in Pakistan’s Punjab province Saturday, March 20, after Muslim leaders backed by police burned him alive for refusing to convert to Islam, while his wife was raped by police officers, Christian and hospital sources familiar with the case told BosNewsLife.

Arshed Masih was burned Friday, March 19, in front of a police station in the city of Rawalpindi near Pakistan’s capital Islamabad, following apparent death threats from his Muslim employer Sheikh Mohammad Sultan, an influential businessman, and religious leaders, said the Rawalpindi Holy Family Hospital.

His wife, Martha Arshed, was allegedly raped by police officers (Frynsegode? AL). Their three children — ranging in age from 7 to 12– were reportedly forced to witness the attacks against their parents.

“Both [Masih] and wife were rushed to the Holy Family Hospital and are under treatment,” the hospital said. He was listed in serious condition with about 80 percent of his body burned.

Local police officials said they were “aware” of the attacks carried out by Muslim leaders and apparently at least some officers and added that an investigation was underway. No arrests were reported yet late Saturday, March 19.

Sheikh Mohammad Sultan could not immediately be reached for comment and it was not clear whether he had been in contact with police Saturday, March 20.

Before tensions emerged about their Christian faith, Masih worked as a driver and his wife as a maid for the Muslim businessman since 2005, Christians said.

The couple apparently lived with their children in the servant quarters of Sultan’s estate in Rawalpindi, a key trade and tourist destination. In January, religious leaders and Sultan allegedly asked Arshed to convert to Islam with his whole family. After he refused, the group reportedly threatened him with “dire consequences

Arshed offered to quit his job, but the businessman allegedly said he would “kill” him if he were to leave. He apparently also told Christian mediators that he would never allow the Christian family to live somewhere else.

This week tensions raised after Sultan reported a theft of 500,000 Pakistani Rupees (5,952$), according to a document seen by BosNewsLife.

The Christian family members were not named as suspects in the so-called ‘First Information Report’ from police.

Sources familiar with the situation, who asked not to be identified for security reasons, told BosNewsLife that the businessman had offered the couple to drop the case if they convert to Islam or “else that both would not see their children again.”

However, “Arshed refused to convert and stood firm in his faith. Arshed`s wife was raped by the police and he was burned alive,” Friday, March 19, local Christians said, speaking on condition of anonimity.

The case comes at a time when church groups have complained about growing attacks against minority Christians by Muslim militants, often with the alleged support by local law enforcement officials and other authorities.

Biskoppens religioner

En bog, Biskoppen ikke kender - eller i det mindste ringeagter

Den islamistiske hykler-biskop fra Århus har følgende indlæg i KrDb – han gør os her bekendt med den ene af sine religioner, politisk korrekthed:

Når vi i tænder julelysene på træet i stuen på selve juleaften, tænker jeg også lidt på en anden fødselsdag, men det er jeg nok stort set ene om. Den aften er der jo så meget andet at tænke på og fornøje sig over.

Har du hørt om Jesus Kristus, for eksempel? ved – ham, du er ansat til at styrke, og være hyrde for hans får – Eller fylder materialisme, griskhed, Muhammad og Al Gore mere i din bevidsthed?

Ikke desto mindre kunne vi godt sige til hinanden, at det i aften er fjorten dage siden, vi kunne fejre noget andet end vor hygge, vore gaver og sikkert også vor selvtilstrækkelighed. Nemlig FN’s deklaration om menneskerettighederne, der den 10. december fyldte 61 år.

Jo, men hvorfor tænke på det – igen? Det har da i hvert fald ikke noget med julen at gøre! Men det er netop, hvad det har! Det vil sige, julens budskab begribeligvis (snip)

Menneskerettighedserklæringen i lyset af julen
Det er en tankegang, der ofte er gået i glemmebogen, også i kirken. Men uden at kunne udforske til bunds den historie, der førte frem til, at man nedskrev for 61 år siden, at et menneske var af enestående betydning blot i kraft af sin menneskelighed, og uden at skulle psykologisere de personer, der skrev erklæringerne ned, så var det altså, som om de skrev på baggrund af julens fortælling og dens erfaring.

Det er nok fra min side en uhyre naiv tankegang. Men jeg bliver ved mit. Menneskerettighederne var den sene, altfor sene, virkning af julens budskab. Et stykke praktisk virkningshistorie.

Menneskerettighederne har intet – IN-TET med kristendom at gøre. Det har næstekærlighedsbegrebet derimod. Desuden er UNHRC besat af islamistiske diktatorer og obscure diktatorer, som gør, hvad de kan for at stikke en kæp i hjulet for den vestlige verden, lige i biskoppens ånd.

Ytringsfriheden for retten

Geert Wilders skal i retten for “hate speech” den 20. jan. 2010:

Geert Wilders

Free speech goes on trial in the Netherlands on January 20, when Dutch politician Geert Wilders appears before the Amsterdam District Court on charges of having “intentionally offended a group of people, i.e. Muslims, based on their religion,” as well as having incited to hatred and discrimination.

What did Wilders do to warrant such charges? He told the truth about the global jihad and Islamic supremacism, and their roots in Islamic texts and teachings, in his film Fitna and elsewhere. But nowadays truth-telling is at such a premium that those who still dare to engage in it are threatened, harassed and prosecuted.

But Wilders is defiant: “On the 20th of January 2010, a political trial will start. I am being prosecuted for my political convictions. The freedom of speech is on the verge of collapsing. If a politician is not allowed to criticise an ideology anymore, this means that we are lost, and it will lead to the end of our freedom. However I remain combative: I am convinced that I will be acquitted.”

Wake up, America!

Imamer vier teenagere

Af ORLA BORG | CARSTEN ELLEGAARD

Et voksende antal muslimske teenagepiger indgår uregistrerede giftermål, foretaget af imamer i private hjem.

Unge muslimske piger risikerer at havne i både økonomisk og social isolation, fordi de ingen lovmæssige rettigheder har i en type muslimske ægteskaber, der bliver mere og mere udbredte, advarer socialarbejdere og forskere.

Konfliktmægler Farwha Nielsen, der i årevis har arbejdet med konflikter i indvandrerfamilier for bl.a. kommuner, kvindekrisecentre og politiet, siger:

»Stadig flere unge muslimske teenagepiger indgår ægteskaber, hvor de ingen rettigheder har i forhold til dansk ægteskabslovgivning. Hvis ægteskabet brydes, er det sharia-loven, der gælder, og der står pigerne svagt. Denne type af ægteskaber er rimeligt udbredt, og de er især steget efter indførelsen af den danske 24-års-regel.«

Når ægteskaberne ikke er officielt registreret, er det typisk imamen, der afgør, hvad der skal ske ved en skilsmisse.

Bestyrelsesmedlem i Danske Familieadvokater Poul Gudberg siger:

»Hun har ingen rettigheder. Har de boet sammen længe, kan man få lidt penge, så tæppet ikke bliver revet væk under hende. Men man har ikke nogen krav. Det er op til parret at finde ud af, hvad der skal ske.«

Poul Gudberg siger, at en vielse foretaget af en imam har lige så lidt gyldighed, som hvis det var købmanden nede på hjørnet, der havde viet parret.

Sex før ægteskabet

Ekstern lektor på Center for Mellemøststudier på Syddansk Universitet Saliha Marie Fettah, der har lavet studier i børneægteskaber i Mellemøsten, siger, at der er flere årsager til teenageægteskaberne. Forældrene er bange for, at pigerne har sex før ægteskabet. I andre tilfælde ønsker de unge selv at blive gift, fordi det ifølge islam er den eneste måde, de kan være sammen med en partner på.

»Det er naivt, hvis danske politikere tror, at sådanne kulturelle forkvaklede forhold forsvinder, bare de unge piger tager sig en uddannelse eller får et arbejde,« siger Saliha Marie Fettah.

Ingen ved, hvor mange muslimske teenagebrude, der er i Danmark. Fahrwa Nielsen og nogle af hendes kolleger taler om et udbredt fænomen. Jacques Royal, socialarbejder på Københavns Vestegn, har alene haft med 11 sager at gøre. Flere af dem har været etnisk danske piger.

Loven – hvem bryder sig dog om den, når islam er involveret?

Tre iranske konvertitter beordres til at ophøre med deres ‘kristne aktiviteter’
Af Compass Direct, via Åbne Døre

De iranske kristne har en hverdag, hvor det i stigende grad bliver gjort vanskeligt at praktisere deres kristne tro. De iranske myndigheder barsler med en lov, ifølge hvilken alle muslimer, der bliver kristne, vil blive tildelt dødsstraf. Men allerede nu mærker de iranske kristne, at de bliver presset af myndighederne. Nu er fx tre kristne blevet fængslet, alene fordi de praktiserer deres kristne tro.

Resumé:
LOS ANGELES, 31. marts (Compass Direct News) – En domstol i Shiraz erklærede den 10. marts tre iranske kristne skyldige i at samarbejde med “anti-statslige bevægelser”. Domstolen beordrede konvertitterne til at ophøre med deres kristne aktiviteter, herunder at udbrede deres tro.

En dommer fra den Islamiske Revolutions-domstol dømte Seyed Allaedin Hussein, Homayoon Shokouhi og Seyed Amir Hussein Bob-Annari til otte måneders betinget fængsel med en femårig prøvetid. Dommeren sagde, at hvis de overtrådte betingelserne for deres prøvetid – herunder et forbud mod at kontakte hinanden – ville han håndhæve fængselsstraffen og sigte dem for at være “frafaldne”, som personer, der forlader islam.

En ny straffelov, som er under behandling i det iranske parlament, omfatter et lovforslag, som kræver dødsstraf for at forlade islam. “Den advarsel, at de vil blive ‘arresteret og dømt som frafaldne’, hvis de fortsætter deres kristne aktiviteter, er ganske skræmmende,” sagde en regional analytiker, som har anmodet om at forblive anonym.
