A Taste Of Bizzaro World

I don't know much about the relationship between India and Pakistan, or between Muslim and Hindu. I just know that it ain't good.

However, I find the Muslim sentiment concerning the horrific rape of two muslim women in the Kashmir region to be a bit on the hypocritical side.

From AFP:

Thirty protesters were hurt Tuesday when police fired shots in the air and teargas during fresh protests in Indian Kashmir over the alleged rape and murder of two Muslim women, police said.

Earlier in the day hundreds of Muslim students marched through the streets of Indian Kashmir's summer capital Srinagar.

Chanting "We want freedom" and "punish the killers", they later dispersed without violence.

Anger over the deaths last month of a 17-year-old girl and her 22-year-old sister-in-law has effectively shut down much of Kashmir valley, including Srinagar, for nearly two weeks.

Is this act contemptible? Of course, by almost anyone's standards. But when one looks at the way in which women, who have made an accusation of rape, are mis-treated in Muslim countries by muslims under Islamic law, the hypocrisy is pretty disgusting.

Usually, rape victims are automatically accused of adultery in Islamic courts. Rape can only be proved if the rapist actually confesses, or if there are four muslim males who are willing to testify that the rape took place.

If neither of these scenarios occur, then the woman is accused of having consensual sex. If either the man or woman is married, then it is automatically considered adultery by the woman.

Just sick.
