The Madness Of Muslim–The Commission Of Filicide

killingcycleIt never seems to end, the constant parade of body parts and body bags. An inexorable bloody march towards some unrealistic unattainable goal set by a crazy man in the desert who thought he’d split the moon in half and rode off into the sky on a winged horse.

Witness then, the vicious vicissitudes of faith:

India mothers charged with daughters’ honour killings

Police in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh have filed preliminary charges against two women accused of killing their daughters.

The women, who were neighbours and are both Muslim, were reportedly furious with their daughters for eloping with Hindu men, police told the BBC.

Zahida, 19, and Husna, 26, were strangled last week after they returned home to make peace with their families.

The two mothers are yet to make an official response to the accusations.

One of the accused is quoted by the Indian Express newspaper as saying after being arrested, “How could they elope with Hindus? They deserved to die. We have no remorse.”

Police say they are still trying to ascertain if the women assisted each other.

Zahida and Husna fell in love with two Hindu construction workers and eloped and got married before returning home to the town of Baghpat last week. Their mothers were arrested by police on Friday.

Correspondents say that marriages between Hindus and Muslims are not common in India. In rural areas especially they are frowned upon by both communities.

Last week India’s Supreme Court ruled that people convicted of so-called honour killings should face the death penalty.

“It is time to stamp out these barbaric, feudal practices which are a slur on our nation,” the court said.

According to one recent study, hundreds of people are killed each year in India for falling in love or marrying against their families’ wishes.

Convictions for so-called honour killings usually carry life sentences.

These were two ordinary women – there was nothing special about them, just some more folks who were just ‘trying to get by’. Likelihood is strong that prior to these outrages, they were just faceless individuals blending in with the masses. Chances are also good that their neighbors would never have guessed that either would have committed such heinous crimes. So the next time anyone lifts up a finger, and gets ready to lecture you (or even if it is you yourself) on how most religious folk are benign, remember: this is another of the many prices paid for accommodationism – the watering of the sands with human blood,  the psychotic need to control the womanhood of daughters; the bended knee to their deity is slick with crimson.

Till the next post, then.

    The religions of Abraham are unspeakably evil. I just emptied the “trash” in the queue and tossed out multiple comments from a very crazed person, assumed to be Muslim, talking about death, and saying that Allah has made a terrible place called Hell to torture people forever. But it’s okay to kill young women, children, etc. because of some idea invented by a nutcases thousands of years ago. And what is most disturbing is that so many human beings are willing to believe this stuff that supports evil and violence, that they WANT to believe it. They want to believe in things that allows them to behave in a barbaric way and justify their heinous acts. There is no reasoning with the mentally disturbed. The evil that religion does most is cause brain damage and destruction of peace and compassion towards humankind. The thing with Muslims, and Christian extremists alike, they will even maim, torture, and kill their beloved children and family. That is disgusting and the biggest sign of the mental destruction that the Abrahamic religions cause.

    And I just found this very sad story today:

    Jordan woman killed in hospital over pregnancy

    A Jordanian man was charged on Sunday with killing his 24-year-old widowed daughter in hospital after she gave birth to twins, a judicial official said.

    “Amman’s criminal court prosecutor charged the man with premeditated murder after he confessed to shooting dead his daughter on Saturday,” in Deir Alla in the Jordan Valley, the official told AFP.

    The official quoted the suspect as saying “I was shocked that she was pregnant. I was enraged and shot her dead because she did something shameful.”

    The woman has been a widow for four years.

    “The man claimed he wanted to check on the condition of his daughter … then he shot her in the head,” said Ahmad Hwarat, head of the hospital where the killing took place.

    Murder is punishable by death in Jordan but in so-called “honour killings” courts can commute or reduce sentences, particularly if the victim’s family asks for leniency.

    Between 15 and 20 women died in such murders each year in the Arab kingdom, despite government efforts to curb such crimes.

    What happened to the post that was put up then taken down right before this one?

    A bit OT, KA…well…
    not really! Let me explain…
    The following, total content, is from my facebook entry on 9/3/11 (in 3 consecutive comments) I’m posting all of it here, because only the first part actually showed up, after 2 subsequent attempts at my 2 “follow-up” comments. I’m beginning to think that someone monitors comments, and if it’s too anti-religious in nature, it might get the “Kibosh”. Personally, I think facebook is mostly a bunch of ultra-trivial blathering; not QUITE as bad, though, as twitter! One more item…I may start using AO for posting full comments like these, and just link people on facebook to AO (avoiding the “Kibosh”?); which will have the added advantage of bringing a bit more attention to this very beloved Site…NO? [Kissy-pooh?]
    Then again, who the fuck pays any attention to MY blathering…anywhere? ;) ]:

    Comment 1 (the original entry; with, IMO, an interesting link):
    An excellent Site, by Kenneth Humphreys, that pretty much “nails” (undermines) the oft assumed notion that there ever was an actual flesh & blood, so-called “Savior/god” of the human race.
    Take a gander (if you rationally dare)?:
    “Welcome to the Enlightenment – Religion: The Tragedy of Mankind”…
    http://www.jesusneverexisted.com/

    Comment 2 [Didn't show up on facebook.]:
    [NOTE: The above linked Site, and of my following related comments, are made in reaction to the rather imminent danger to our secular democracy posed by the current batch of Republican “Christian Dominionist” (Theocratic) extremists. It’s certainly NOT the time for us constitutionally aware secularists, whether believers or atheists, to just sit down and STFU! It’s obvious, at least to THIS atheist, that the overwhelming majority of Main (Lame?) Stream Media has a general (rather chicken-sh*t?) “hands off religion” policy; which, I think, needs to be pointed out, if not compensated for…MUCH more often.]

    Comment 3 [This, also, didn't show up on facebook, and IMO, obviously(?) applies to ALL religions!]:
    To continue…
    The old Jesuit dictum, multiply attributed to Jesuits: St. Ignatius of Loyola, St. Francis Xavier, or Baltasar Gracian (huh?) comes to mind:
    “Give me a child until he is seven and I will show you the man.”
    Based on my own, from birth/onward, personal experience, I contend that the ONLY reason anyone EVER believed (and continues to believe for an entire lifetime) ANY religion…without an iota of any actual, Scientific, or indisputable rational evidence…is due to the age-old tradition of Childhood Indoctrination…albeit, in most cases, a form of unintentional, but extremely effective…mental child abuse; which, I also contend, leads to all manner of lifetime mental illnesses, depression, and various substance abuse and addictions. All spawned by the absurd dogmatic notion that “we’re all…born worthless, evil sinners…deserving of Eternal punishment!”
    Talk about a concept of absolute INjustice!!!
    I rest my atheist/non-believer case!

    Manly, which post was that?
    Chuck…nice rant. I think Facebook is just quirky. I have comments disappear and then show up hours or days later. I have seen worse on the site, however, people can report others for “abuse” and then the admins investigate, so who knows. It’s always the fundies and god botherers who cry baby about shit that criticizes their stupid ass beliefs, etc.

    I was thinking of writing a post for my own blog about how I should probably cease and desist from all venomous hissing at my Mexican Catholic family over their benign fascination with The Cult Leader’s Sock. See, just when I reduce the scope of religious insanity to Devotees of the Sock and syrupy self-help books from a creepy megachurch, a post like this one reminds me that the stakes are higher. I’m going to continue attacking the more benign expressions because one day it’s just “sudden fits of holy socks” and in the next Turn of the Screw(balls), someone ends up strangled. Thanks for the post!

    That was me. WordPress and my browser are having probs getting along. It will be back soon.

    What I find heartening yet at the same time heart breaking is how the youth follow their hearts and expect all to be well. What can they really expect from religions that perpetuate fear and terror as part of their code of behavior. Fortunately Many governments are trying to enter the 21st century. It jsut takes time traversing the 16th 17th 18th 19th and 20th getting here.

    really there was a post there for a bit it even asked why it couldnt hyperlink and then it was pulled, after which this new one came up

  9. Stardust says:

    Jimmer, I don’t see your new post in drafts or anywhere.

    Stardust
    Yeah. I am baffled about this. I’ll get it today I hope. I think I may have toggled the wrong yes/no button a month ago. Now to figure out which one????
