Somehow, the appelation “Religion of Peace” doesn’t seem to stick when I read stories like this.
From the Telegraph UK:
|A man and woman have been stoned to death in northern Afghanistan after being accused by the Taliban of having an affair.
The 23-year-old woman and 28-year-old man were killed because “they had an affair,” said Mohammad Ayob, the governor of Imam Sahib district in Kunduz province.
“Two people were stoned to death by Taliban in Mullah Quli village late yesterday,” he said. The village is under the control of the Taliban.
The couple had their hands bound behind their backs and were forced to stand in an empty field as their sentence was carried out, he said.
A local Taliban commander, who contacted media but refused to give his name, confirmed the killings.
Earlier this month, the Taliban publicly flogged and then killed a pregnant widow for alleged “adultery” in western Badghis province.
Where is the outrage from the so-called “moderate” Muslims? If this were a Christian or Jewish happening, the entire world would be screaming with rage (including the Muslims). Where was the courageous Islamic who stood up in front of the crowd and said, “Let him who is without sin amongst you cast the first stone!”
But then, I’m sure that the apologists for the Islamics will assert that the couple was violently stoned to death in the most peaceful manner possible.
