Islamic Acid Attacks - More Muslim Barbarism
Acid, the new weapon for disfiguring women
It's happening in Bangladesh as well as in Pakistan and Gaza. There is, of course, nothing in the Qur'an to the effect of "Throw acid on her" if a woman is disobedient -- there is just "beat her" (4:34). But the horrible attacks on these women are an indirect result of the reduction of women to the status of commodities in Islamic law. They are not seen as equal human beings with rights they were bound to respect, but as animals to be punished harshly if they get out of line. http://www.jihadwatch.org/2008/10/acid-the-new-weapon-for-disfiguring-women.html
Mob in Pakistan Burns Down Houses and Throws Acid on Christian Women and Children
So far 9 burned women and 4 children have been transferred to Lahore for further medical treatment. All of them have been injured by throwing acid on them. Local police have arrived on the scene but the situation is out of control as thousands of Muslims have gathered for this purpose.
Acid attack on Afghan schoolgirls
Attackers in Afghanistan have sprayed acid in the faces of at least 15 girls near a school in Kandahar, police say. They say the attack happened shortly before at least six people were killed in a bomb blast near a government building in the city.Doctors say the six girls were wearing Islamic burkas or veils which provided them with some protection. Correspondents say the attack is likely to have been carried out by those opposed to the education of women. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/south_asia/7724505.stm
Bangladesh acid attacks
The acid victim, most often a woman, found herself grotesquely disfigured, perhaps blind, deaf, or disabled in other ways. She could no longer work or study, not only because of her disabilities, but because of the massive disgrace she was often perceived to have brought upon her family. It was widely believed that the woman had provoked the attack herself by her flirtatious behavior or unseemly outspokenness. A single woman would have no chance of ever finding a husband and would remain an eternal burden on her family. The life of a married woman was many times even worse. Not only would she have to continue living with the perpetrator, but in many cases, her children would refuse to have any further contact with her. http://www.spiegel.de/international/0,1518,406485,00.html
Acid attack on boy who 'refused sex with Muslim cleric'
The teenager talked, with difficulty, of how his life had been destroyed since the fateful day in June 2002 when he refused to have sex with his teacher at a religious school in Pakistan. The boy was horrifically injured in an acid attack after he rebuffed the Muslim cleric's sexual advances. Now, he has alarmed Pakistan's powerful religious establishment by pressing charges against his alleged assailants. A teacher at the school, who cannot be named for legal reasons, and two of his friends are in prison awaiting trial for attempted murder and rape. All three deny the charges. A fourth alleged attacker is still at large. It is the first such case to be brought against a Muslim cleric and threatens to expose a scandal of sex abuse within Pakistan's secretive Islamic schools. Abid was blinded and maimed in the assault, which he says came shortly after he rejected sexual demands from the Islamic teacher at a madrassa in a crowded, lower middle-class district of Karachi. "He threatened to ruin me for life," Abid recalled, "but I didn't take him seriously. I just stopped going to the madrassa". http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/pakistan/1453786/Acid-attack-on-boy-who-refused-sex-with-Muslim-cleric.html
Pakistan: Acid thrown over women in ‘blasphemy’ attack on village
An angry mob petrol-bombed homes and threw acid over Christian women, after mosque loudspeakers accused the Christians of blasphemy. The attack took place on 30 June at Bahmani village in the district of Kasur, in Punjab. Partners of Release International, which serves persecuted Christians, say a mob looted and burned the houses of Christians. Lawyers told Release International that one of the victims of the acid attack was Noreen, a young teenage girl. She was taking a bath when a petrol bomb was hurled through the window. “After she ran naked from the room a Muslim boy threw acid on her,” said Katherine Sapna from CLAAS (the Centre for Legal Aid Assistance and Settlement). “The acid burnt her back and a little went on her face.” http://www.inspiremagazine.org.uk/news.aspx?action=view&id=3574
Muslim women, children bear scars of acid attacks
DHAKA (AFP) – At first glance, Bably Akter looks like any other nine-year-old Bangladeshi girl, dressed in a brightly coloured pink and turquoise skirt and top trimmed with silver sequins. A matching headband conceals her left ear, badly deformed and the only obvious sign she is the victim of an acid attack, a practice rampant in the impoverished country, used mainly in domestic disputes and against women and children. As her mother, Parul, recounts the story of how Bably’s father put drops of acid on different parts of her body every day for five days when she was a baby, the little girl lifts her skirt to reveal a large scar on her legs and feet.
“Her father wanted a son. He’d been violent towards me before Bably was born but it was not until day five, when he actually fed her acid I realised something was seriously wrong,” Parul, 26, said.
-By restricting women to second class citizens islamic communities encourage violence against them. If islam ever rejoins the rest of the human race in this century it will be the women that force the change.She complained to the police but charges were never laid.-Naturally, she was his property and it was a private family matter. http://doctorbulldog.wordpress.com/2009/03/08/muslim-women-children-bear-scars-of-acid-attacks/
Islam in action - Acid attacks on women
We hear this often - acid attacks on women in Islamic societies. It happens in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kashmir, Sudan etc. - the only thing common to these places is they are Islamic societies in the grip of fundamentalist Islamists (i.e., practising Muslims). The problem is this - Islam simply does not regard women are fully human. They are property, and a man can do anything to property. This is reflected by the terrible state of women throughout Islam. I have always stated clearly that women are the primary reason why it is unethical to keep quiet about Islam. Islam dehumanizes women. And the world keeps silent. I won't. http://dharmaveer.blogspot.com/2009/03/islam-in-action-acid-attacks-on-women.html
And now in Londonistan
A Muslim man is in a critical condition in hospital after having acid poured down his throat in an "honour attack" for having a relationship with a married woman. Police have warned the woman, also a Muslim, that her life is now in danger and are discussing how best to protect her. The 24-year-old man was attacked with sulphuric acid and stabbed by four men. He was blinded in one eye, suffered severe injuries to his tongue and throat and suffered 50 per cent burns. He was also stabbed twice in the back and attacked with bricks leaving him with fractures to his face. The Danish man, who is of Asian origin, is said to have "insulted" a woman's religious family by becoming close to her, although she has denied to officers that the relationship was sexual. He was attacked at about 2am on July 2 in Marchant Road, Leytonstone, east London, close to a bedsit in Mayville Road he had rented a few weeks earlier to be near the woman. One witness who saw the attack from her window said: "I saw four men lashing out and kicking him on the ground. I shouted and they ran off, then one went back and started on him again. "The poor man got up and ran straight into a tree, then staggered back to his house, tugging at his burning clothes and banging on doors shouting for water." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/5894521/Muslim-man-critical-after-honour-attack-with-acid.html
