Govt asked to explain failure to stop fatwa

*** begin quote ***

The reports said Hena was raped by her 40-year-old relative Mahbub on Sunday. Next day, a fatwa was announced at a village arbitration that she must be given 100 lashes. She fell unconscious after nearly 80 lashes. Fatally injured Hena was rushed to Naria health complex where she succumbed to her injuries.

*** end quote ***

Let’s keep this story in mind when we think of what we are dealing with.

Pray for that unfortunate girl who was born into a disaster.

Beck, on a recent TV show, posed the question that “democracy” asks: “Can men rule themselves?”

In this case, in this country, in this religion, I’d say the answer is “no”.

Tonight, I’ll be thinking about that child.
