Inspiration For Taliban Attack on Women’s Rights Group is Islam
23 Oct, 2007
The latest of
long series of vicious attacks on women’s schools and
institutions came on Sunday October 22nd when
Taliban Mujahideen attempted to blow up an NGO promoting women’s
education and rights, Khawando Kor (Sisters' Home).
Fortunately they only managed to blow up one of their own and the other two accomplices have been arrested. However the campaign of terrorization is often successful and continues.
The politically correct wisdom is always parroted that Taliban’s treatment of women is nothing to do with Islam but due to some local cultural factors only and the real Islam is supposed to be a progressive dream for women. Whilst this whitewash might be diplomatic a look at the behavior of the prophet of Islam and Islam’s perfect holy book the Qu’ran reveals the absolute antithesis of women’s rights.
Women according to the Qu’ran: can be beaten to make them obedient Q.4:34, Women’s witness is only worth half of men’s Q.2.282, women receive only half of the inheritance of men Q.4.11, Women have unequal rights to divorce, Men may have 4 wives at a time and unlimited sex slaves. Even married women slaves who they capture are permitted for their enjoyment by the Islamic God Allah: Q.23:05-06, Q.4:24 “Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess…..”Q.33:50 “O Prophet! We have made lawful to thee thy wives to whom thou hast paid their dowers; and those whom thy right hand possesses out of the prisoners of war whom Allah has assigned to thee…..” Their marriages would be immediately dissolved by the Merciful Allah.
Allah’s Prophet Mohammad had no compunction in getting women murdered as in the case of Asma Bint Marwan, so violence against women wouldn’t be problematic on that front.
The patriarchal and retrogressive Taliban are only following their ideal role model who had all the morality of an alpha male monkey. Let us consider his ideal life:
Inspite of the Qu’ranic restriction of only 4 wives (at a time) and unlimited sex with ‘right hand possessions’ he notched up an impressive harem of wives, even trading 7 of his captured slaves for an attractive female: “Allah, the Majestic and the Glorious, defeated them (the inhabitants of Khaibar), and there fell to the lot of Dihya a beautiful girl, and Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) got her in exchange of seven heads….” Sahih Muslim 8:3328, Allah’s prophet at the age of 50 married a young girl of six and consummated that marriage when she was 9 years old Bukhari.5.55.236 “Khadija died three years before the Prophet departed to Medina. He stayed there for two years or so and then he married 'Aisha when she was a girl of six years of age, and he consumed that marriage when she was nine years old.” This is the prophet who Muslims are to emulate faithfully Q.33.21 He traded slaves, launched aggressive wars to spread his religion, and ordered his followers to fight non-believers until they accept Islam or an inferior humiliated status and pay a toll tax for the privilege of practicing their own religious belief and not being killed by his followers: Q.9:29 “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
Here are some of Allah’s last and final Prophet’s views on Women:
Majority of hell’s residents are women [Sahih Bukhari 1.6.301]
Like dogs and donkey’s women annul prayers [Sahih Bukhari 1.9.490]
Islamic Women Should be prolific baby factories so that Islam can outnumber non-believers with their help [Sunaan Abu Dawood 11.2045]
A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife [Sunaan Abu Dawood 11.2142]
Suggested ‘moderate‘ female circumcision [Sunaan Abu Dawood 41.5251]
Women are deficient in intelligence [Sahih Bukhari 1.6.301]
Islam is a power doctrine to subjugate into submission gullible followers. Women’s rights are its anti-thesis and a threat to be mercilessly crushed. Women can only expect slavery and second-class citizenship under Islam. Human rights are rights fought for by humans and are not to be surrendered to unproven claims of divine revelation.
