71% Pak males justify beating women


Lahore, Dec 11: A recent survey on violence against women in Pakistan has found that 71 per cent males consider slapping and beating women as justifiable.

According to the survey, 80 per cent of women are victims of domestic violence in society.

Addressing a seminar on the occasion of the International Human Rights Day at the Punjab Law College (PLC) here, participants said that sustained and collective efforts were needed to end domestic violence in Pakistan.

“Islam and the country’s legislation give equal rights to women. The only need is to implement Islamic rules and legislation, and create awareness in the society about women’s rights.”

Presentations were given on women rights in Islam, the Women Protection Bill and sexual harassment scenario in the country.

Government College University Clinical Psychology Department director Dr Zahid Mehmood was the chief guest.

WRCP Country Director Omer Aftab and Punjab Law College principal Dr Hadia Awan were among the speakers, the Daily Times said.

Dr Mehmood highlighted the psychological aspects of violence against women, and said it was a global problem, but of a different magnitude in Pakistan.

He claimed that the ratio of violence against women was comparatively higher in Pakistan.

Aftab said that women’s rights was declared as a human right in 1993 at the Vienna Conference on Human Rights.

The mindset of the male member of the society should be changed, he added.

* That, however, is impossible because of the ‘immutable’ Koran:

Koran 4:34 tells men to beat their disobedient wives after first warning them and then sending them to sleep in separate beds. This is, of course, an extremely controversial verse, so it is worth noting how several translators render the key word here, waidriboohunna:

Pickthall: “and scourge them”

Yusuf Ali: “(And last) beat them (lightly)”

Al-Hilali/Khan: “(and last) beat them (lightly, if it is useful)”

Shakir: “and beat them”

Sher Ali: “and chastise them”

Khalifa: “then you may (as a last alternative) beat them”

Arberry: “and beat them”

Rodwell: “and scourge them”

Sale: “and chastise them”

Asad: “then beat them”

* Muslims, when confronted with the text, lie and deny and attack the messenger for “incorrect & offensive hate speech.” Pickthall, Yusuf Ali, Al-Hilali/Khan, Shakir, Sher Ali, Khalifa and Asad are Muslims. Are their translations all “incorrect and offensive?”

* Here you can get it from a respected Muhammedan cleric:

* “Islam elevates women..”

* Fitzgerald: Islam respects women?

Pope Tells Warmonista’s to Shove It

Pope on global warming: Don’t get hysterical

* What he really should have said is that ‘carbon-trading’ is the biggest fraud in human history, since the whole concept is based on the biggest transfer of wealth from developed nations to 3rd world crap holes who destroy their environment and hold us to ransom over it. Making the strong weak doesn’t make the weak strong, it just destroys reason and sanity, and our own civilization…


Pope Benedict XVI has launched a surprise attack on climate change prophets of doom, warning them that any solutions to global warming must be based on firm evidence and not on dubious ideology.

The leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics suggested that fears over man-made emissions melting the ice caps and causing a wave of unprecedented disasters were nothing more than scare-mongering.

The German-born Pontiff said that while some concerns may be valid it was vital that the international community based its policies on science rather than the dogma of the environmentalist movement…

“It is important for assessments in this regard to be carried out prudently, in dialogue with experts and people of wisdom, uninhibited by ideological pressure to draw hasty conclusions, and above all with the aim of reaching agreement on a model of sustainable development capable of ensuring the well-being of all while respecting environmental balances.

  1. of course he would say that. After all it is God that determines the weather. (sarc off ) …
    I love this current pope. He could single handedly bring down the Catholic church with his archaic and bigotted ways…….

  2. if the politicians listened to this we might get some sense into the arguement and realise that we can’t stop global warming but we can adapt to it!
    funny how’s there’s no plan B and they’re all sure that reducing carbon emissions will save the world while they never discuss population control or reducing cow farts…..

  3. Global warming: the lunacy of these times!

    This is set to be the coolest year on record.

    Climate change has been going on forever. And now our stupid leaders think they can fight Mother Nature and influence the weather??? Like those other primitive sun worshippers?

    Yes,, something in common with old religions: buy “indulgences”,,err,,,carbon credits to ease your conscience!

    Gore is making heaps out of this. Follow the money trail!
    OZ puts out 1.5% of total carbon dioxide which isn’t even dangerous.
    Let’s wait and see what China and India do,,nothing I bet!

    frakked: you have a point – too many people.

    “The end is nigh”!!!!

  4. I wonder what percentage of the Pakistani Muslimas think they deserve to be beaten-probably a sizable one thanks to the thorough brainwashing techniques of the cult of death.

  5. The second from the left Muslim ‘scholar’ bears an uncanny resemblance to Sheikh-Cat-Meat-Hilali. Is it my imagination? Or is it a case of ‘they all look alike’.

  6. ‘Dr. Mehmood highlighted the psychological aspects of violence against women, and said it was a global problem, but of a different magnitude in Pakistan’.

    It is not a ‘global’ problem. It is a problem only in mohammedan communities and countries.

    On second thoughts, he may be correct seeing as the scourge of Islam has infiltrated just about every country on the globe!

  7. Hey people-quit picking on Al Gore. Don’t you know he’s the brilliant scientist of our era-expert on global warming, inventor of the Internet, etc. It’s amazing he’s not an Islamaniac with such great achievements in the scientific world.

    Or is he?

  8. [Gore] I suspect he follows the “Earth Goddess” Gaia, rather than “Prophet” Mo. “Earth in the Balance” lying around here somewhere – great for insomnia – “Gaia Hypothesis”, Lovelock etc.

  9. Mullah Lodabullah
    I’ll believe Gore when

    1. he stops charging $200k per speech,and spreads the ‘gorespell’ for free,
    2. he gets rid of his private plane,
    3. moves into a cave. (OBL is more of a greenie than Gores is,lol!)

    I saw that picture on the train: good photo op.
    I bet he actually worships the almighty greenback!

  10. I would feel extremely justified in beating 71% of Pakistani men : ) Oh hell, throw in the other 29% too. As for violence against women being global, it may be true that women are abused all over the world, the difference is that the Muslims think it is a normal thing to do. The rest of us do not. That remark was left wide open for my response, I think.
