Not so loving to one's daughter and her lover.
Again I cross swords with the sheer downright ignorance and the inbred stark fear of one's peers, within the archaic Muslim Sharia Law.
Sharia law runs parallel and equally as stupid as sixteenth century witch hunting and burning of innocent people at the stake.
This latest violation of human rights should be challenged and the perpetrators of this atrocity; namely this Muslim segment of the faith industry charged with murder; nothing less.
Lovers shot for eloping.
Kabul: A Taliban firing squad has executed a young couple for trying to elope.
Gul Pecha, 19,and her boyfriend Abdul Aziz, 21, were shot with AK-47's in front of a crowd in a militant controlled town in Southwest Afghanistan.
The were accused by the militants of immoral acts and a council of conservative clerics decided they should be killed.
The two had hoped to travel to Iran but their parents sent villagers to bring them home. Although accounts vary as to whether the pair was handed over to the Taliban by their parents or taken by force.
The Taliban forbids unmarried men and women talking or meeting without supervision.
I find it difficult to believe this sort of behaviour, when I compare our very close social activity with our Muslim friends and neighbours while living in Malaya in the 1950s. One friend Abdul Karim bin Anang who died in December 1986, Wrote to us for thirty two years, beautiful copper plate style letters in near perfect English, and we visited him and his extended family in 1960 and 1986 prior to his departure to that great mosque in the sky. I believe he was more Christian than Myself and his goodness showed.
