Posted on 06/13/2016 12:41:21 PM PDT by nickcarraway
A group of Pakistani clerics has issued a fatwa, or religious ruling, declaring "honor killing" over perceived damage to a family's reputation against the teaching of Islam, and anyone who carries out such an attack a heretic.
Hundreds of Pakistanis, the vast majority women and girls, are murdered every year by relatives after being accused of damaging a family's honor. Most cases involve young women trying to chose partners against a family's wishes.
The ruling by the Sunni Ittehad Council, which includes more than 100 prominent clerics, comes after a string of particularly shocking killings including the burning to death by a mother of a 16 year-old girl who eloped with a young man.
"It seems were are moving towards an age of barbarism," the council said in its fatwa issued on Sunday, a rare edict on the problem in the Muslim majority country of 190 million people.

Yeah but who listens to “thooose” clerics?
They will either be ignored, beheaded, or depending on who talked to before hand, considered that their statement was taqiya and therefore Halal....
Who are you going to believe? A bunch of Pakistani clerics, or Mohammed?
AFTER 1500 years of this crap, today it only 'seems' like you're moving in that direction?
He’ll end up dead like Al-Khoei in Iraq.
Uh Huh...yeah, that must be it.
It won’t stop honor killings.
Its not like the Muslim World pays a great deal of attention to fatwas when family honor is involved.
That’s just the way they are.
There are countless official and unofficial clerics. Their power and influence extends only to their followers. If they deviate too much from what the followers expect they can be killed or just ignored.
“It seems were are moving towards an age of barbarism,”
Islam never left it.
Masters of understatement.
Good call by those Muslim clerics, 1200 years too late, but better late than never.
It seems were are moving towards an age of barbarism,
Mad Mo based his religion on barbarism
Our forefathers knew all about it.
John Qunicy Adams on Islam
In the seventh century of the Christian era, a wandering Arab of the lineage of Hagar, the Egyptian, combining the powers of transcendent genius, with the preternatural energy of a fanatic, and the fraudulent spirit of an impostor, proclaimed himself as a messenger from Heaven, and spread desolation and delusion over an extensive portion of the earth. Adopting from the sublime conception of the Mosaic law, the doctrine of one omnipotent God; he connected indissolubly with it, the audacious falsehood, that he was himself his prophet and apostle. Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust, by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST: TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.
Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. That war is yet flagrant; nor can it cease but by the extinction of that imposture, which has been permitted by Providence to prolong the degeneracy of man. While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. The hand of Ishmael will be against every man, and every mans hand against him. It is, indeed, amongst the mysterious dealings of God, that this delusion should have been suffered for so many ages, and during so many generations of human kind, to prevail over the doctrines of the meek and peaceful and benevolent Jesus (Blunt, 1830, 29:269, capitals in orig.)
You're just figuring that out?!?!?!?!?!
“It seems we are moving towards an age of barbarism”
So are we here.
Taqiyya for the kaffir dupes.
Moving toward an age of barbarism?? Islam has never moved OUT of one!
...declaring "honor killing" over perceived damage to a family's reputation against the teaching of Islam, and anyone who carries out such an attack a heretic... The ruling by the Sunni Ittehad Council, which includes more than 100 prominent clerics...Well, that should straighten things right out. /s
