    Celebrate multicultural diversity

    Quick, name a muslim country you would consider vacationing to for the multicultural experience..... nope, I couldn't think of one either.

    Oh I know, it's the dancing and ethnic foods that we most think of when we say multicultural appreciation.

    Wait, I don't know if dancing is allowed in Pakistan. I do know they have the bomb. I can really appreciate that little genie that got out of the bottle.

    When the British drew the lines that separated India and Pakistan I think they did a pretty good job. The only multicultural area left was Kashmir, and even that is 95% muslum.

    Kashmir is the flashpoint for the future nuclear war. Perhaps India better let Pakistan have it so that sharia justice may prevail. You know, amputation and such; the kind muslums would like for themselves in places like the UK.

    Maybe they use holy sabers when cutting off pieces of a person instead of these advanced tools displayed here... another thing I don't know and will not travel to find out.


    A full bench of the Federal Shariat Court (FSC) on Friday declared awarding a sentence of limb amputation without Tazkiya Al-Shahood (two witnesses) un-Islamic, and set aside the limb amputation sentence awarded to a convict by a trial court in a robbery case.

    During the hearing of an appeal, the FSC bench said that if judges continued awarding sentences without fulfilling the condition of Tazkiya Al-Shahood, thousands of robbers in Karachi would lose their hands and legs due to the increasing incidents of robberies there.

    Noor Alam Khan said the additional district and sessions judge had convicted Ajab on January 26 and sentenced him under Section 17(3) of the Offence against Property (Enforcement of Hudood) Ordinance, 1979. He said that a trial court had ordered that his (Ajab) right hand from the wrist and left foot from the ankle be cut off. He said the court had also awarded a five-year imprisonment and a Rs 30,000 fine to the appellant.

    Alam said the trial court had erred while sentencing the appellant under Hadd as the condition of Tazkiya Al-Shahood had not been fulfilled. He referred to Section 7 of the ordinance, arguing that the proof of an offence liable to Hadd was in two forms: either the accused should plead guilty to the offence or at least two Muslim adult male witnesses should give evidence as eyewitnesses of the occurrence. He said the witnesses should be truthful people and should have abstained from the major sins.
