Pakistani girl loses nose, lips for seeking divorce (7th century barbarian alert)

Here is yet another case of savage butchery committed against a woman for offending the honor of a man. From the New Brisbane's News:

MULTAN, Pakistan - A Pakistani man cut off the nose and lips of his 19-year-old sister-in-law after she went to court for a divorce in a tribal area of the central province of Punjab, police said on Thursday. Abbas then attacked the girl, hacking off her nose and slicing off her lips.

A doctor treating the girl said her nose had been cut off from the bridge and her lips partially severed.

Numerous cases have also been reported of women being disfigured as punishment for offending a man‘s honour.

Shaista Bukhari, coordinator of a women‘s rights group in Multan, said that until courts handed down death sentences for such crimes, violence against women would continue.

Sub Inspector Shafiq said the girl‘s attacker, once caught, would be tried in a anti-terrorist court, which are meant to deliver justice rapidly.

It's not like they're just going to let him get away with it.

Since she's a woman, how many witnesses will she need to get a conviction? Crimes are fine within Islam, as long as there aren't witnesses or it's a crime that is supported by the quran.

Where are the feminazi groups? I would've thought they'd be running out there to join in the fight against evil male oppressors...

As opposed to them sitting safe at home in America claiming they're being abused here.

I know it's been asked 100 times, but has to be asked again. Why isn't this stuff picked up by MSM? They could run these stories everyday. The MSM and Dems say they care for people, but apparently only if it suits their needs. This definitely goes for Amnesty International.

She offended the man's sense of honor and got what she deserved according to her culture.

Who are we to judge an equally valid culture?

Was someone sleeping during multicultural class again?

(Yes, I was being sarcastic ...)

No, it's exactly like he got away with it. It's done. She cut up. The fact that he thought it was acceptable is the problem. Religions and countries where these type of crimes occur need to be gone.

Ted Kennedy killed a person for less and he is their poster boy for justice.

I hope their special anti-terrorism court, deals swiftly with this creep. It must be some court that is not beholden to the religion of peace.

Just about the time I start getting real critical or down about the way things are going here in the US, I read a story like this and THANK GOD (literally) that I was soooo blessed to live such a safe, comfortable life in a rich country like this. And I wonder, "Why me?" When I'm tempeted to complain that "Life's not fair", I remember where I live and what I have and think, "Yeah, life's not fair cause I have it so good and most people don't. That's not fair either." I don't deserve this more than anyone else, I'm just fortunate to have it.

**A doctor treating the girl said her nose had been cut off from the bridge and her lips partially severed. ***

Many years ago I saw photos of Algerians who had their nose and lips cut off by Algerian rebels during the revolt against the French.

It was not pretty.

Would someone explain to me why in tarnation this does not upset the likes of NOW and those interested in equality and tolerance ?

I'm seriously starting to believe that there IS a mind control ray. I mean how else do you explain the mass stupidity of the left ? No one is that stupid naturally.

You can't be against all wars overseas, and then attack the atrocities of the ones we are fighting. It is the ultimate of hypocrisy.......I wanna go beat up a left wing media dude now....:-)

There is a movement in Islam finally...
Women realize they have the children and that these men (whether imams or mullahs), were born of women.
The women are finally rising up, do not fear... while they think they can tell Allah what to do and that hurricanes are their sisters... their own women are saying it's enough. This is happening before their own eyes.

Maybe the women should start watching 'The Burning Bed' or 'The Elena Bobbitt Story' in Arabic... then we'll see a change.

Here's a challenge to the MSM and ABC. Put this poor girl on Extreme Makeover. Show the world what Islam is, and what plastic surgery is really for. Show the world the real benefits of a free society.

".....until courts hand down death sentences for such crimes, violence against women will continue."

Enforceable death sentences for murder must be initiated concurrently, or the victims of violence will probably be killed. Dead wives tell no tells.

Without witnesses, "trials" of abusive and criminal husbands under Islamic law generally result in the perps walking.

Indeed, being admired in the community, also.

Religion of beasts.

Someone really needs to "go Commanche" on that perp's ass. Staking him to an anthill would be a good start.
