Ah, young love. Romeo and Juliet died in self-inflicted stupidity. But in the Muslim version, Raafi and Jabarah are tortured to death by their relatives (see Family Arranges ‘Honor Killing’ of Daughter. Guess their Religion… and Religion of Peace: Pakistani Model Killed by Brother in ‘Honor Killing’…). Romantic. Peaceful. Hallmark is bidding for the movie rights as I type.
Two teens making eyes at one another were recently fried by the sparks of Muslim family love. Warning: the following story will ruin your day. But not as much as these two lovers.
Two Pakistani teenagers who tried to elope were brutally murdered by relatives with electric shocks last month as an “honor killing” in the southern port city of Karachi, police confirmed.
The tribal boy and girl accused of falling in love with each other were declared by the local tribal council, or jirga, as a symbol of “dishonor” on the Pashtun community.
I love how “love” is a crime worthy of accusal.
Sorry, let’s carry on.
On the orders of the influential tribal council, the teenage girl was murdered first, and the boy was killed the next day. The bodies were buried secretly at night and no funerals took place.
“The innocent souls were tied to a charpai (rope bed) and given electric shocks,” said Aman Marwat, the police officer who arrested the two fathers and two uncles and is pursuing some 30 members of the jirga who have gone into hiding.
As the saying goes: It takes a village to kill two children. Or something like that.
Let’s note this didn’t happen in Ohf*ckistan, a random country you’ve never heard of. No, this happened in Pakistan. In an Islamic country such as Pakistan, forbidden love isn’t just a 24 year old professor falling for a 17 year old student of the same sex. Forbidden love in an Islamic country such as Pakistan isn’t just a woman who bats her uncovered eyes at a man she’s not married to. In Islamic Pakistan, forbidden love takes the form of two heterosexual teenagers who dared run off to get hitched.
In a western nation, two teens eloping would likely cause a bit of a stir. There might be a family meeting. They’re may be yelling. There may be calls of “you’re throwing away your future you young twits what have you done?” But in a western nation, there likely isn’t a suggestion in the family meeting to “light these mother f*ckers up like a Dave Clark’s New Years Rocking Eve.”
At least none that I’m aware.
Because as stated more often than a stone is thrown at an adulteress, Islam isn’t the religion of peace. It’s not even a culture of peace. In fact “peace” and “Islam” go together as well as “Hillary Clinton” and “Presidency.”
I apologize for nothing.
But the left refuses to see the horrors of Islamic cultures. Which is why, sadly, we must keep exposing it.
