Â You must have heard of the Muttaween, the religious policemen in Sowdi Barbaria who run around with clubs beating people into the ‘holy mosques’. In Iran you have these goons from theÂ Â Propagation of Virtue and theÂ Prevention of Vice also. They are forcing women to adopt a Â custom of covering themselves according to the Â Qu’ran. If they fail to comply repeatedly, they get arrested by the ‘morality’ police and raped in prison.
Now we have them in Australia: A man who was
allegedlyÂ held against his bed by four bearded attackers while he was whipped with a cordÂ in Sydney’s west has said he was theÂ victim of sharia law. Â
Not to worry: we can all benefit from sharia:
- Australian Federation of Islamic Councils argues that ALL Australians would benefit if Islamic shari’a laws were adopted as mainstreamÂ legislation.
The 31-year-old man said he was a recent convert to Wahhabism and had been punished by members of his congregation for drinking. Â Police would not confirm whether the alleged attack in a Melton Street apartment in Silverwater was thought to involve sharia law. (More)
Note that Ahmed Kilami doesn’t deny that this is the Sharia punishment for those who drink alcohol. He just objects to the attackers’ taking the law into their own hands. The law is clear: onceÂ Muhammad flogged a man forty times for drinking alcohol. “Intruders whip Silverwater man, 31, for drinking,” fromÂ AAP, July 18 (thanks to JW):
A Sydney man who was held down on his bed and whipped up to 40 times by strangers had recently converted to Islam and was reportedly being punished for drinking.The 31-year-old was asleep in his apartment in Silverwater, in Sydney’s west, when he woke to find four bearded men in his bedroom about 1am (AEST) yesterday.
Three of the intruders restrained him on the bed while the fourth man used a cable to lash him 40 times.
The attack lasted about 30 minutes and left the man covered in welts, the Seven Network reported today.
The man reportedly told police he had only recently converted to Islam and that fundamental Wahabi Muslims were punishing him for having a few drinks with friends.
Members of Sydney’s Muslim community have condemned the attack.
“This criminal act has no place in Islam. As Australian Muslims we are required to follow Australian law, not take the law into our own individual hands,” Ahmed Kilami, from the Muslim Village, told the Seven Network.
“I hope these guys are caught and face the full force of the law.” Â (which law? Sharia?)
The victim has moved out of his home butÂ hopes what happens to him will not distort people’s view of his adopted religion, the network said.
But of course. To ‘distort’ Islam Â would be the worst thing.
