Woman Dismembered by Imam for Wearing a Bathing Suit
An imam named Muhammad Zulkifal is on trial in Italy for murdering two of his fellow Pakistanis for the crime of wearing bathing suits at the beach. At least one of the victims, a woman, was dismembered.
He had condemned a Pakistani couple to death because they wore bathing costumes to go to the seaside. Today the imam goes on trial.
In 2011 in the area of Gardone Val Trompia (Brescia) two Pakistanis were killed because they had violated Islamic law: they had worn swimsuits on the beach. Condemning them was the imam of Zingonia (Bergamo) Muhammad Zulkifal, a member of a cell of Al Qaeda with its operational base in Olbia. Zulkifal has always claimed “the role of moral guardian of the community and the right to inflict exemplary punishment to enforce divine law.”
One of the chilling side-notes in this article from Il Giornale is the fact that Mr. Zulkifal’s terror cell, which is based in Italy, has significant influence in Pakistan — the opposite of what you’d normally expect. Does this mean that AQO (Al Qaeda in Olbia) will use their Italian stronghold as a base from which to launch terror attacks in Pakistan? (More from the Gates of Vienna)
