A 17-year-old girl was publicly flogged by the Taliban in Pakistan’s Swat Valley (yes, really) after a neighbor accused her of adultery. Her brother held her down as the Muslim adultery police whipped her. A crowd stood by, watching silencing, as she screamed face down in the dirt. The stone-age sharia worshipers passed video of the beating around on their…mobile phones. Indeed, the Taliban is so proud of its handiwork that they’ve been contacting Western media to spread the word.
Reached by phone, Taliban spokesman Muslim Khan claimed responsibility for the flogging. “She came out of her house with another guy who was not her husband, so we must punish her. There are boundaries you cannot cross,” he said. He defended the Taliban’s right to thrash women shoppers who were inappropriately dressed, saying it was permitted under Islamic law.
What’s Khan’s phone number? 1-800-FLOG4ALLAH?blog comments powered by Disqus
