Islam forbids Muslim women from marrying non-Muslim men. This is a supremacist law, since Muslim men may marry non-Muslim women. The idea is that the woman will join the man’s household, and thus the Muslim community will be ever growing and the non-Muslim community ever declining. Attempted honor killing in India: “Man throws acid on daughter for love outside faith,” from The Siasat Daily, June 1 (thanks to Puneet):
Bulandshahr (Uttar Pradesh), June 01:In an alleged attempted “honour killing”, a man poured acid on his daughter and threw her into a canal for planning to marry a man from another religion Tuesday, police said. The girl is in critical condition in hospital.
Gulistan, 18, daughter of Asghar Ali of Charaura village in Bulandshahr district, 350 km from Lucknow, fell in love with Ravinder, 20, who ran a medical store in the village and often came to their house to deliver medicines.
The couple eloped 10 days back but were traced to Delhi and Gulistan was taken back to the village. Her parents then pretended that they had agreed to let her marry Ravinder and asked her to come with them to Delhi to buy clothes for the marriage.
War Is Deceit, after all. And make no mistake: as far as this family is concerned, this is war.
The girl left with her father and brother. When they reached near the upper Ganges canal on Grand Trunk Road, they stopped and dragged her out. First they poured acid on her face, strangulated her and then threw her in the canal. Assuming that she had died, they left the place.
However, Gulistan revived in the water and shouted for help. Some local boys of nearby villages, playing there, rescued her and informed police, who admitted her to hospital.
Asghar has been arrested and a search is on for his son, Superintendent of Police (City) J.K. Sahi said.
“On the spot from where the girl was rescued, she said her father was annoyed over her love affair with the local Hindu boy but when her statement was recorded before the magistrate in the hospital, she shifted from her original statement made before the police and said after getting angry at her father’s objection, she poured the acid on herself,” Sahi said.
It seemed she was trying to mislead police with her declaration, he added….
No kidding, really? And why might she be interested in doing that?
