In Islamic law, a Muslim man may marry a non-Muslim woman. But a Muslim woman may not marry a non-Muslim man. From the London Paper, June 19 (thanks to Twostellas):
Thursday, 19 June 2008 Police were appealing for witnesses today following the attempted murder of a man who was doused in petrol and set on fire in east London.
The 20-year-old, who is fighting for his life in hospital, was torched as he sat in his car in Forest Gate.
It is believed the Hindi victim, who suffered 65 per cent burns in the attack, was targeted because he was dating a Muslim girlfriend.
He had just parked his car, a green Honda Prelude, in St George’s Road when he was approached by the suspect or suspects and had petrol poured over him before being set alight....
