X Posted from the “Oppression of Minorities In Pakistan” thread.

The “Official” mouthpiece of the Christism’s Catholic sect, Vatican News, reports on blatant Mohammadden discrimination targeting Christist’s of the catholic sect in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan:

Pakistan blocks young Catholics bound for WYD Panama

Hardly surprising discriminatory conduct by the Government of the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Such is the horror of being a Non Mohammadden “Dhimmi” in a Mohammadden majority country like Pakistan as Christist of the Catholic sect, Asia Bibi, is finding out with the government of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan continuing to prevent her from leaving the dhimmi concentration camp horror of that is Pakistan:

Asia Bibi 'still living like a prisoner'

The horrors of living as a Non Mohammadden in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan revealed once again as the Mohammadden belief based doctrine of “Mā malakat aymānukum” aka "what your right hands possess" aka Non Mohammadden Women are fair game to play the role of sex slaves for Mohammadden men, reserved for Non Mohammadden “Dhimmis”, finds disgusting expression:

British man jailed for sex with funeral home corpse – AFP

LONDON: A burglar who had sex with a corpse in an English funeral home he broke into was jailed Friday for six years.

A judge in the industrial city of Birmingham said Kasim Khuram's - obviously a Terroristani - crime "offended all human sensibility".

The man was found to have been both drunk and high on artificial cannabis and PCP at the time.

The 23-year-old pleaded guilty during at an earlier hearing.

The judge said Khuram disturbed the three bodies and nine coffins during the breakin.

"You set about disturbing all nine of these bodies -- exactly what you did, and why, only you know," judge Melbourne Inman said during the sentencing.

Defence lawyer Joseph Keating said Khuram was "deeply sorry" for what he had done and that his actions were "out of character"

This has become a regular occurrence on social media - some poor arab girl trying to escape their family and country. Some benevolent billionaire should buy a island and start a country for them which can be a staging place till they find a suitable country to emigrate.

Bareilly woman claims serial 'halala' – TNN

BAREILLY: A woman in Bareilly was forced to perform the ritual of 'nikah-halala' with her father-in-law after her husband gave her instant triple talaq. The matter came to light on Tuesday during the hearing of a maintenance case that the woman had filed against her husband after he divorced her again in 2017 and was forcing her to perform halala with his brother.

The victim's sister stated in her affidavit filed in the court of Judge Ajay Singh that her sister was married to a resident of Qila, on July 5, 2009.

"After her marriage, two years went well but my sister's husband and in-laws started torturing her as she couldn't give birth to any child. They started calling her sterile and would keep her without food for several days. Beating up my sister over petty issues had been a routine. On several occasions, my sister faced sexual abuse by her husband," she stated in the affidavit.

According to case details, the woman was first divorced on December 15, 2011. But when her family requested her husband to reconsider his decision, he agreed on the condition that she would have to undergo 'halala' with his father.

"When my sister refused to undergo 'halala', her in-laws forcibly administrated sedative injection on her and completed the ritual with her father in-law. For next 10 days, the elderly man raped my sister and gave her triple talaq so that she could remarry her husband. But, in January 2017, he again divorced my sister and then the family started pressing her to undergo 'halala' with her husband's younger brother," she said. It was then that the family moved family court for maintenance. The court has fixed February 15 for the next hearing in the case.

An FIR under sections 498A (dowry), 377 (unnatural sex), 376 (rape), 323 (Punishment for voluntarily causing hurt), 328 (causing hurt by means of poison with intent to commit an offence), 511 (punishment for attempting to commit offences punishable with imprisonment for life), 120B (punishment of criminal conspiracy) of IPC has already been lodged against halala victim's husband and other in-laws at Qila police station.

49 dead, 20 seriously wounded in New Zealand mosque shootings

WELLINGTON: At least one gunman killed 49 people and wounded more than 20 during Friday prayers at two New Zealand mosques in the country's worst-ever mass shooting, which Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described as terrorism.

New Zealand was placed on its highest security threat level, Adern said, adding that four people in police custody, three men and one woman, held extremist views but had not been on any police watchlists.

"It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack," PM Ardern said.

Follow Live Updates: New Zealand mass shooting

The visiting Bangladesh cricket team was arriving for prayers at one of the mosques when the shooting started but all members were safe, a team coach told Reuters.

The killings in the city of Christchurch were condemned by political and Islamic leaders across Asia.

Video footage widely circulated on social media, apparently taken by a gunman and posted online live as the attack unfolded, showed him driving to one mosque, entering it and shooting randomly at people inside.

Worshippers, possibly dead or wounded, lay huddled on the floor, the video showed. Reuters was unable to confirm the authenticity of the footage.

One man who said he was at the Al Noor mosque told media the gunman was white, blond and wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest. The man burst into the mosque as worshippers were kneeling for prayers.

"He had a big gun ... he came and started shooting everyone in the mosque, everywhere," said the man, Ahmad Al-Mahmoud. He said he and others escaped by breaking through a glass door.

Radio New Zealand quoted a witness inside the mosque saying he heard shots fired and at least four people were lying on the ground and "there was blood everywhere".

Ardern said 30 people were killed at the Al Noor mosque, the city's main mosque, and another 10 at a mosque in the suburb of Linwood. It was not immediately clear if the attacks were carried out by the same man.

"This is one of New Zealand's darkest days," Adern said.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush said four people had been taken into custody.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said one of the men in custody was Australian.

The online video footage, which appeared to have been captured on a camera strapped to the gunman's head, showed red petrol canisters in the back of his car, along with weapons.

Police said improvised explosive devices were found with a vehicle they stopped.

All mosques in New Zealand had been asked to shut their doors, police said.

"Indonesia strongly condemns this shooting act, especially at a place of worship while a Friday prayer was ongoing," Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said in a statement.

She was earlier cited by media as saying six Indonesians had been inside one mosque when the attack occurred, with three managing to escape and three unaccounted for.

In Muslim-majority Malaysia, Anwar Ibrahim, the leader of the biggest party in its ruling coalition, said: "I am deeply saddened by this uncivilized act, which goes against humanistic values and took the lives of civilians."

Muslims account for just over 1 percent of New Zealand's population, a 2013 census showed. Now it will be Three Percent if not more.

‘Blood everywhere’

The online footage showed the gunman driving as music played in his vehicle. After parking, he took two guns and walked a short distance to the entrance of the mosque.

He then opened fire. Over the course of five minutes, he repeatedly shot worshippers, leaving more than a dozen bodies in one room alone. He returned to the car during that period to change guns, and went back to the mosque to shoot anyone showing signs of life.

One man, with blood still on his shirt, said in a television interview that he hid from the gunman under a bench and prayed that he would run out of bullets.

"I was just praying to God and hoping our God, please, let this guy stop...," Mahmood Nazeer told TVNZ.

"The firing went on and on. One person with us had a bullet in her arm. When the firing stopped, I looked over the fence, there was one guy, changing his gun."

The video shows the gunman then driving off at high speed and later firing at parked cars and a building. Another unconfirmed video taken by someone else appeared to show police apprehending the gunman by the side of a road.

The Bangladesh cricket team is in Christchurch to play New Zealand in a third cricket test starting on Saturday.

"They were on the bus, which was just pulling up to the mosque when the shooting begun,” Mario Villavarayen, team strength and conditioning coach, told Reuters in a message. "They are shaken but good.”

The third cricket test was cancelled, New Zealand Cricket said later.

Violent crime is rare in New Zealand and police do not usually carry guns.

Before Friday, New Zealand's worst mass shooting was in 1990 when a gun-mad loner killed 13 men, women and children in a 24-hour rampage in the tiny seaside village of Aramoana. He was killed by police.

The attackers were most probably Non-Muslims. As such the attackers could be of N Z - European Origin.

The New Zealand shootings do not appear to be the usual Green on Green Intra Mohammadden sectarian violence of attacking places of Mohammadden significance on the Mohammadden Saabtah of Friday. In the New Zealand case it appears be most likely a case of Intra-Abrahamic violence with the alleged perpetrator having a Christist sounding name of Brenton Tarrant who in a “manifesto” supposed to have been posted on the internet prior to the shooting describes himself as “Just a ordinary White man, 28 years old. Born in Australia to a working class, low income family. My parents are of Scottish, Irish and English stock.” (PA via AOL UK Clicky)

This tweet states that the NZ mosque shooter visited the Hunza Valley. But no link was given.

Eztainutlacatl ~ळाळुक
‏ @cbkwgl

he used the insignia of Tamatar Warriors of Ukraine. Everything was picture perfect. Even if he said Pakistan, no one would have linked him to Pakistani terrorist-paramilitary. But, what went wrong? An old post on his visit to Hunza Valley. And what are the new implications now?


As usual a link with the Purelanders dosen't seem to be very far away...

Hmm..
See this:
WELLINGTON – A Pakistani origin man who tried to disarm Australia-born gunman during an active shooting at a mosque in New Zealand lost his life due to indiscriminate firing. Naeem Rashid tried overpowering the shooter identified as Brenton Tarrant after he had entered the mosque, however, he was left badly wounded during the attempt – aimed at protecting fellow worshippers.

Naeem, who is being praised on a global scale for displaying matchless defiance and resilience, was rushed to the hospital, however, he lost his life according to a private TV channel. Naeem Rashid hails from Abbottabad city of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan and also worked with a private bank before migration to Christchurch. In the tragic turn of events, Rashid’s 21-year-old son, Talha also lost his life during the shooting spree, branded terrorist activity by the government of New Zealand and being denounced by global leaders.

Earlier, Pakistan’s High Commission in Wellington had confirmed four Pakistani-origin men were wounded and five others were missing after the Friday’s carnage. Update on New Zealand terrorism incident – 4 Pakistanis injured and being treated in hospitals – 5 Pakistanis are missing. Identities are being authenticated in consultation with local authorities.

— Dr Mohammad Faisal (@DrMFaisal) March 15, 2019

As many as 49 Muslims were martyred at two mosques in central Christchurch on Friday; forty-one people were shot dead at the Deans Ave mosque, seven were killed at the Linwood Ave attack, and one person shot in the second mosque attack died in hospital. Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison described the gunman, who had Australian citizenship, as an “extremist, right-wing” terrorist. “It is clear that this can now only be described as a terrorist attack,” {A*** be praised! They used the word Terrist to refer to a non-Paki!!} Ms Morrison said, adding that it marked “one of New Zealand´s darkest days”.

“From what we know, it does appear to have been well planned,” she said in a hurriedly-called press conference. In a social media post just before the attack, the shooter posted a link to a 74-page manifesto that was filled with anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim ideas and explanations for an attack.

If Naeem Rashid was a Paki, it's safe to assume he wasn't trying to "tackle" the gunman but falling at his feet and trying to kiss his shoes.
"Please! There are women and children in the next room! Spare ME, and save your ammo for THEM!"


As for the five missing Pakis, they probably had no legitimate vijja to stay in New Zealand and were under the scanner of immigration authorities. When the shooting started, they saw their opportunity to "disappear" and bolted.

Sheep in the rural hinterlands around Wellington had better watch out.

Some of those Paki Beauties are indeed mountainous, and a few minutes with them is all that is needed to drive a Kangaroo to pick up the AK-47.

With regard to the shootings at the two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, Australian Senator Fraser Anning borrows standard operating procedure Mohammadden gambit of shedding taqiyyah crocodile tears after an act of Mohammadden Terrorism that kills Non Mohammaddens and trolls Mohammaddens with the harsh truth message that having sown the seeds of Mohammadden belief justified violence targeting Non Mohammaddens, Mohammaddens are now in turn reaping the whirlwind blowback of Non Mohammadden violence.

I wonder if the mullah was able to deliver the call upon Allah to smite the non-believers and assure the victory of Mohammadans, before the underemployed white dude ripped apart his flesh.


O Allah! Count their number, slay them [non Muslims] one by one and make them a lesson to their likenesses

Oh Allah, Defeat them and make the ground shake beneath their feet, and show us in them the wonders of Your Might, for they are weak before You, O Mighty, O Powerful.

O Allah! Raise the standing of Islam and the Muslims.

The New Zealand incident was bad, but where were these same marchers and mourners, when non-Moslems were slaughtered in various places, Egypt, India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Nigeria et al? There were at least 3 horrific killings of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the publicity given to the condemnations and mourning, was miniscule compared to New Zealand.

Moslems are not always the victims, they are often the perpetrators.

Muslims in the West or India never call for reforms in Pakistan to secure minority rights, they call for reforms in the west and India to secure minority privileges.

Indians and white Christians need to face this reality and demand reciprocity and accountability.

The fact that the above is coming from a non-religious, educated, self-identified humanist, who reads The Guardian faithfully, should give Pakistanis pause. Imagine what the fundamentalist semi-literate Christian is thinking.

White on Green terror had just taken a back seat after the 1st WW due to the involvement of all the allies etc. Green on 'Others' did not as the greens never had any other constraints to focus on progress or HRD. NZ attack was anyways a ticking time bomb. France, Germany, Holland, Poland, UK etc are bigger time bombs. What can be done to stop these? Nothing. What can Hindus/Indians do to protect themselves? Start training in self defense, drills to escape attacks, disarm attackers, at least basics of how to handle a gun etc. Last thing one wants to be is a sitting duck in these kind of incidents.
NZ would be the last country on earth to understand islamism. They have a long long way to go, but they will learn the hard way eventually. Theres no way out.

Exactly, but at least they are willing to condemn terrorism against Western countries, and label it as terrorism or extremism. Not so with India( and I strongly suspect Thailand, Philippines et al) when India suffers from a terrorist attack. Then the riders, qualifiers come out in droves i.e underlying cause, Hindu nationalism, human rights violations in Kashmir, communal riots, the Sachar report.. When I brought this little discrepancy up in another forum years ago, one Moslem poster did say that Indian Moslems will condemn those acts of terror just like other Indians. Which is largely true, but the question remains why Moslems from outside India, specifically those in the West, don't denounce those incidents. When France or the UK experience a terrorist attack, Moslems from the US and Canada will condemn the perpetrators. And the same with any combination of Western countries.

One explanation is that Moslems in Western countries are afraid of the repercussions from those states, which are 'harder' than India. They have more to lose by being silent in the West, or being critical of their adopted countries. The other is that they actually feel that Hindu lives are not as important as Western ones or that Hindus deserve it, and no need to fear taking a non-committal or critical stance with India.

I believe this is slowly changing, Muslims are becoming sensitised to Indian sensibilities, the motivators are several.
Increasing economic power of India, high military potential, demonstrated technological aptitude, now a right of center GI, overseas Indians developing political influence, convergence of Indian and Western interests, the utility of assuming an Indian identity to discourage Western scrutiny, the intense interest in India as a front-line state against China. There is also a soft power aspect. Democracy is not one of these factors.

I remember the disparaging comments Indian Muslims would make about India (many Hindus did as well). I hear less of that now.

China says 13,000 Xinjiang 'terrorists' arrested since 2014

China says it has arrested nearly 13,000 people it describes as terrorists in the traditionally Islamic region of Xinjiang since 2014 and broken up hundreds of "terrorist gangs".

The figures were included in a government report on the situation in the restive north-western territory that seeks to respond to growing criticism over the internment of an estimated One Million members of the Uighur and other predominantly Muslim ethnic groups.

China describes the camps as vocational training centres and says participation is voluntary.

Former detainees say they were held in abusive conditions, forced to renounce Islam and swear allegiance to China's ruling Communist Party.

Gunman kills 3 on Tram in Dutch town of Utrecht

A gunman killed three people and wounded nine others on a tram in the central Dutch city of Utrecht, sparking a manhunt that saw heavily armed officers with sniffer dogs zero in on an apartment building close to the shooting.

Authorities immediately raised the terror alert for the area to the maximum level, and the city’s mayor said a “terror motive” was the most likely theory. Dutch military police went on extra alert at Dutch airports and at key buildings in the country as the Utrecht manhunt took place.

A few hours after the shooting, Utrecht police released a photo of a 37-year-old man born in Turkey who they said was “associated with the incident.” The photo showed a bearded man on board a tram, dressed in a dark blue hooded top.

Police warned citizens not to approach the man, whom they identified as Gokmen Tanis, but call authorities instead.

The Utrecht attack came three days after 50 people were killed when an immigrant-hating white nationalist opened fire at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand during Friday prayers. There was no immediate indication of any link between the two events.

Police, including heavily armed officers, flooded the area after the shooting Monday morning on a tram at a busy traffic intersection in a residential neighborhood. They later erected a white tent over an area where a body appeared to be lying next to the tram.

Utrecht police said trauma helicopters were sent to the scene and appealed to the public to stay away.

Heavily armed anti-terror officers gathered in front of an apartment building close to the scene. A sniffer dogs wearing a tactical vest with a camera mounted on it was also seen outside the building.

Mayor Jan van Zanen confirmed three deaths and said that nine people were wounded, three of them seriously.

“We cannot exclude, even stronger, we assume a terror motive. Likely there is one attacker, but there could be more,” van Zanen said.

“Our nation was hit by an attack in Utrecht,” Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said. He said that “a terror motive is not excluded.”

Rutte said that, throughout the country, “there is a mix of disbelief and disgust.”

“If it is a terror attack then we have only one answer: our nation, democracy must be stronger that fanaticism and violence,” he added.

Police spokesman Bernhard Jens said one possibility “is that the person fled by car.” He did not rule out the possibility that more than one shooter was involved.

The Netherlands’ anti-terror coordinator raised the threat alert to its highest level around Utrecht, a city of nearly 350,000 people. Pieter-Jaap Aalbersberg said the “threat level has gone to 5, exclusively for the Utrecht province.”

Dutch political parties halted campaigning ahead of provincial elections scheduled for Wednesday that will also determine the makeup of the Dutch parliament’s upper house.

In neighboring Germany, police said they had stepped up surveillance of the Dutch border. Heinrich Onstein, a spokesman for federal police in North Rhine-Westphalia state, said additional officers had been detailed to watch not only major highways, but also minor crossings and railway routes.

German authorities were initially told to look out for a red Renault Clio compact sedan, but were later informed it had been found abandoned in Utrecht, Onstein said.

Dutch police said on Monday they were looking for a 37-year-old Turkish man in connection with a shooting in the city of Utrecht that is believed to have left at least one person dead.

“The police ask you to watch out for 37-year-old Gokmen Tanis (born in Turkey) in connection with this morning’s incident,” a police statement said.

Mosque massacre: Anger at news reports 'humanising' Christchurch killer

In the wake of the Christchurch massacre, families of the fallen anxiously wait to recover the bodies of their loved-ones.

Australia’s Sky News was taken off the air in New Zealand following complaints that it was ignoring instructions not to broadcast video of the attack. Non-violent parts of the footage shared by Australian newspaper sites was slammed by readers demanding that it be removed.

An article by one newspaper reporting on gunman Brenton Tarrant’s life growing up the Australian town of Grafton said he was a "dedicated” fitness instructor who ran free programmes for children.

British press reports, meanwhile, published a photograph of Tarrant as a toddler – describing him as an “angelic child who grew into an evil far-right mass killer”.

Countless people online have called out the western media for choosing to focus on the life of the perpretrator rather than the lives of his victims.

Tarrant’s social media accounts have since been removed, and Facebook has taken down 1.5 copies of the video, which had been live-streamed on the platform.

Official images of Tarrant's face taken during his court appearance were pixelated due to a court order, but a white-power hand signal he gave was not obscured.

As the death toll rose to 50, a moving Haka war dance tribute was performed by the indigenous Maori community outside Christchurch’s Al Noor mosque, the scene of the worst of the two attacks.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern hugged mourners and laid a wreath outside a mosque in Wellington in tribute to the victims.

Ardern, whose office was sent the gunman’s manifesto just minutes before the shooting, has promised changes to gun laws in New Zealand – where figures published by the Maori Council say roughly one in three people own the country’s 1.5 million guns

Gunman kills three in Dutch tram, suspect arrested - Reuters

UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS: A gunman shot dead three people and wounded nine on a tram in the Dutch city of Utrecht on Monday and police said they were hunting for a 37-year-old Turkish man after an apparent terrorist attack.

Dutch authorities raised the terrorism threat in Utrecht province to its highest level, schools were told to shut their doors and paramilitary police increased security at airports and other vital infrastructure and also at mosques.

The suspect identified as 37-year-old Gokmen Tanis has been arrested, city authorities said.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte convened crisis talks, saying he was deeply concerned about the incident, which came three days after a lone gunman killed 50 people in mass shootings at two mosques in the city of Christchurch, New Zealand.

"Our country has today been shocked by an attack in Utrecht... A terrorist motive cannot be excluded," Rutte said in a statement to the media.

"The first reports have led to disbelief and disgust. Innocent people have been struck by violence... We are now doing everything we can to find the perpetrator or perpetrators as soon as possible. That is now our complete focus."

The mayor of Utrecht, Jan van Zanen, said three people had been killed and nine injured, three of them seriously, in the tram incident.

Dutch police identified the suspect as Turkish-born Gokmen Tanis. They issued an image of Tanis and warned the public not to approach him. They gave no further details.

Local broadcaster RTV Utrecht said the suspect had a long history of run-ins with the police for both minor and major crimes, including a shooting in 2013. Police spokesman Joost Lanshage, citing the investigation, declined to comment on the reports that Gokmen had a criminal record.

The shooting took place in Kanaleneiland, a quiet residential district on the outskirts of Utrecht with a large immigrant population.

“It’s frightening that something like this can happen so close to home," said Omar Rahhou, who said his parents lived on a street cordoned off by police. "These things normally happen far away but this brings it very close, awful."

The streets of Utrecht were emptier than usual and mosques in the city kept their doors closed on Monday, in part due to fears they might become targets following Friday's mass killings in Christchurch.

Police screened off the site where at least one body lay covered near the tram.

The Algemeen Dagblad newspaper, quoting a witness of the incident, said the gunman had targeted a woman on the tram and then shot other people who had tried to help her.

Dutch television showed counter-terrorism units surrounding a house in Utrecht, but there was no official confirmation that the gunman might be inside.

Utrecht, the Netherlands' fourth largest city with a population of around 340,000, is known for its picturesque canals and large student population. Gun killings are rare in Utrecht, as elsewhere in the Netherlands.

New Zealand shooting comments spark diplomatic row as Scott Morrison calls in Turkish ambassador

President Tayyip Erdogan claimed the mosque attacks in New Zealand were part of a wider attack on Turkey and evidence of global anti-Muslim sentiment.

He criticised the Anzacs for their role in the Gallipoli campaign and threatened to return anyone who came to his country with anti-Islam sentiment back in coffins.


Mr Erdogan, who has been touring the country ahead of local elections later this month, again showed excerpts of a video taken by the attacker during the mosque shootings and denounced what he called rising hatred and prejudice against Islam.

He criticised New Zealand and Australia for sending troops to Turkey in the World War I Gallipoli campaign, claiming their motive was anti-Islam-oriented.

"Your grandparents came here … and they returned in caskets," he said.

"Have no doubt we will send you back like your grandfathers."

The NZ mosque shootings present a great opportunity for muslims to capitalize on white guilt and accelerate their takeover of western societies. I see whites tripping all over themselves to prove their dhimmitude in the wake of the attack. Self-censorship to squash anti-Islamic sentiment is now being openly embraced. We've already seen this self-censoring become enshrined into the law in France.

A-o-A attempt in Italy

Driver hijacks, sets ablaze school bus in Italy, children flee unharmed

A bus full of schoolchildren was hijacked and set on fire by its own driver on Wednesday in an apparent protest against migrant drownings in the Mediterranean, Italian authorities said.

All 51 children managed to escape unhurt before the bus was engulfed in flames on the outskirts of Milan, Italy’s business capital. Police named the driver as Ousseynou Sy, a 47-year-old Italian citizen of Senegalese origin.

“He shouted, ‘Stop the deaths at sea, I’ll carry out a massacre’,” police spokesman Marco Palmieri quoted Sy as telling police after his arrest.

A video posted on Italian news sites showed the driver ramming the bus into cars on a provincial highway before the fire took hold. Children can be seen running away from the vehicle screaming and shouting “escape”.

Al La Ham Sandwich!

Big noise Mohammadden political party leader of Jamiat Ulema-e Islam (F), Fazlur Rehman, complete with Mohammadden thought leader title of “Maulana”, in the Mohammadden Terrorism Fomenting Islamic Republic of Pakistan, declares participation of women in a marathon event as “obscene”.

Any guess on what has triggered this “obscene” charge by the Maulana? Heavy Breathing Women? Bouncing Breasts? Bare skinned exposed Legs? Something not listed? ………………

Is it halal to declare an event like a marathon in which women participate as haram and incite pious momin males to indulge in presumably haram things?
