Islam Doesn't Like Lovers

According to the Nawa-e-Waqt, a panchayat (village court) of Khanpur (Ed.: Pakistan) sentenced to death two lovers desirous of marrying. The two were taken into a field of sugarcane and shot. The boy was first beaten and his arms broken. The two were caught by the girl's brother who brought them before the panchayat. The lovers confessed that they loved each other, after which they were given the death sentence.

Or People Who Fart (Thanks

Killed because of 'mooli'
According to Khabrain, one Chaand Butt, standing for general councillor in Wazirabad, was granted the electoral sign of mooli (radish). Because of its association with flatulence, a person present at the returning office started joking with Chaand Butt who became so infuriated that he drew his gun and shot him dead on the spot. According to the Jang, the Election Commission announced that the electoral signs mooli and kela (banana) have been removed from the list because they were considered obscene.

Chaand Butt and Farting. Gotta Love It. I guess Hooters Girls staging Banana Eating Contests won't be happening any time soon in Pakistan.

And then there's that Nice Kuwaiti Official, Who Thinks 'The terrorist Katrina' is a soldier of Allah'

Muhammad Yousef Al-Mlaifi, director of the Kuwaiti Ministry of Endowment's research center, published an article titled "The Terrorist Katrina is One of the Soldiers of Allah, But Not an Adherent of Al-Qaeda."(1) the Aug. 31 edition of the Kuwaiti daily Al-Siyassa. Following are excerpts:

"...As I watched the horrible sights of this wondrous storm, I was reminded of the Hadith of the Messenger of Allah [in the compilations] of Al-Bukhari and Abu Daoud. The Hadith says: 'The wind is of the wind of Allah, it comes from mercy or for the sake of torment. When you see it, do not curse it, [but rather] ask Allah for the good that is in it, and ask Allah for shelter from its evil.'
"When the satellite channels reported on the scope of the terrifying destruction in America [caused by] this wind, I was reminded of the words of [Prophet Muhammad]: 'The wind sends torment to one group of people, and sends mercy to others.' I do not think — and only Allah [really] knows — that this wind, which completely wiped out American cities in these days, is a wind of mercy and blessing. It is almost certain that this is a wind of torment and evil that Allah has sent to this American empire.

"But I began to ask myself: Doesn't this country [the U.S.] claim to aspire to establish justice, freedom, and equality amongst the people? Isn't this country claiming that everything it did in Afghanistan and Iraq was for truth and justice? How can it be that these American claims are untrue, when we see how good prevails in the streets of Afghanistan, and how it became an oasis of security with America's entrance there? How can these American claims in the matter of Iraq be untrue, when we see that Iraq has become the most tranquil and secure country in the world?"
"But how strange it is that after all the tremendous American achievements for the sake of humanity, these mighty winds come and evilly rip [America's] cities to shreds? Have the storms joined the Al-Qaeda terrorist organization?

How thoughtful of the US to rescue Mr. Al-Mlaifi and his fellow Kuwaitis from the grip of Saddam, so he can now inform us of such wonderments. And what of the Tsunami that killed hundreds of thousands of Mr. Al-Mlaifi's fellow Moslems? Did Allah send his Divine Terrorist Tsunami Messenger on a wrong turn? Took a right at the Malaysian Archipelago, instead of heading left for the West? Allah needs a better GPS device...
