Human Rights Commission Of Pakistan (HRCP) 2011 Report: ’943 Women Were Killed In The Name Of Honor, Of Which 93 Were Minors’
‘The Murderers Were Mostly Brothers And Husbands’
Human Rights Commission Of Pakistan (HRCP) 2011 Report
The Qur’an says: “Your wives are a garment for you, and you are a garment for them.” (2:187) So a husband and wife complete each other – each one takes on a new aspect of their humanity, a new facet and depth to their personality by entering into marriage and this is symbolized in this verse. Garments also conceal the body and protect the wearer so that a husband and wife are each other’s protectors and helpers and each of them safeguards their partner’s honor shaping the state of marriage into a haven and a sanctuary where each should feel safe and secure, sheltered in one another’s care and guardianship.
– Islam from inside
Here’s one we prepared earlier…
One of Spain’s leading underground artists is due to appear in court today facing up to a year in prison over a film short he made in 1978 on “how to cook Jesus Christ”.
Javier Krahe has been taken to court by a Catholic legal association, the Centro Juridico Tomas Moro, for “offending religious feelings” – a little-known offence. The Catholic association says the law has never before been applied in Spanish legal history.
Banned under Spain’s strict censorship laws in 1978, Krahe’s 54-second film was finally broadcast on television in 2004 as the backdrop to an interview with the artist.
The film uses culinary language and images to show viewers how to “remove the nails and separate him from the crucifix, which we leave to one side” before the white ebony figure of Christ is shown being lightly smothered in butter, placed on a bed of aromatic herbs in a glass tray, and popped into an oven. Another culinary “guideline” recommends using a proportion of “one gaunt Christ” for each two potential diners.
If they jail him my religious feelings will be offended: does that mean the judge has to go to jail too?
