I would like to know who wrote the Sharia Law that allows such a brutal and slow demise. The person should be subjected to it themselves, or at least just to the point where they suffer enough to regret such writtings. The men of course in their religion are considered to be of a higher evolved species than the women, so they remain untouched and unblamed.
I do believe that it is wrong to force our own beliefs onto others, however I also realise that there is no humanity in the stoning to death of anyone, or the removal of limbs without anesthetic or treatment against bacterial infections, never mind what they did.
You get a cut on your hand, and it hurts, you bang your head on a corner, and it hurts, how can one not know or even understand that it is nothing short of torture to be stoned to death ?
I do know that in some countries it is a man's natural right to take his wife's virginity, and should she be found to be not 'intact' then it is a reflection on the man and his status in the community because it is considered a sign, that the woman could be carrying a STD, and therefore he could be infected too. So, there is a slight point to it. It is indeed, true that woman with no sexual contact, usually don't have any STD's, whereas the flip side to it all is that it is usually a man that would have transmitted the disease in the first place, and still nothing is done, and the man gets away with it scott free. In some countries after a wedding night a couple must prove the womans virginity by hanging out the post coital sheets. If the woman are not virgins, and this is discovered on the wedding night, then they are run out of town, with nothing to call their own. If the woman is sensible and has the money, she will go to her doctor and get checked, whether she has had an affair or not. If for some reason she is not intact, then a procedure can take place to replace the hymen.
All I can say is that, if the ruling does go ahead and the lady's fate is sealed, then I hope that she can pay someone to throw a large and heavy rock at her skull to end it for her quickly...just like the people being beheaded in the olden days in England, paying for a hopefully quick demise.
The child in the previous case was weaned and then taken into the desert and left to die. The half eaten body of the child was found by some reporters, according to the news reports on CNN. Who knows what will happen to the child in this case.
I truely hope their appeals will be heard and the lady will be spared, but if they did that, it would mean a major change in the laws. With world interest following the case, the country will want to appear strong and not bowing to pressure, especially after all that is going on in the world right now. I just pray that the judge will rule against the death sentance. Only time will tell.
Peace, Love, and Happiness, Always
