Lunatic Islamist group vows to issue a fatwa against teenager who survived a Taliban shooting

SERIOUSLY deranged British Muslim playboy-turned-preacher, Anjem Choudary, is reportedly involved with a new British-based Islamist group  – Shariah4Pakistan  – that plans to meet in Islamabad to issue a religious decree against Malala Yousufzai , the 15-year-old a Pakistani schoolgirl shot by the Taliban.

Malala Yousufzai is recovering in the UK

In the days following her shooting in October, she became an international icon and world leaders pledged to support her campaign for girls’ education. She is currently recovering from her wounds in the UK.

According to this report, Choudary said the fatwa could be issued on November 30 at Lal Masjid, one of Pakistan’s most notorious mosques, where a 2007 army raid crushed a Taliban-style movement controlling the compound.

Abu Baraa, a senior member of Shariah4Pakistan said:

There will be a fatwa issued regarding Malala Yousufzai taking into account the full story of her injury including her public statements in support of the occupying US army in the region and mocking of key symbols of Islam such as hijab and jihad.

The group, whose website features a blog below a photograph of Yousufzai in a hospital bed titled “Don’t Believe The Crocodile Tears for Malala Yousufzai”, is associated with some of Britain’s most hardline Islamists.

The mosque’s deputy head, Maulana Amir Siddique, denied the group would be holding such a conference but organisers insisted they did not need permission to gather in a public place of worship.

Neither Baraa nor Choudary would say what punishment Yousufzai might face if the group found her guilty of violating Islam.

Said Choudary:

Nobody is saying we are going to get out our swords and go and look for Malala … The point is a wider issue: it is about the American and Pakistani involvement in maintaining the British and American interests.

Malala is one of the issues we are going to be addressing because she is being used as a propaganda tool by the enemies of Muslims to say: ‘Look, Muslims don’t believe in education’ which is absurd.

Tens of thousands of Britons have called on the government to nominate Yousufzai for a Nobel PeacePrize for her work promoting girls’ education.

Her shooting was the culmination of years of campaigning that had pitted the young girl against one of Pakistan’s most ruthless Taliban commanders, Maulana Fazlullah.

Fazlullah and his men had taken over Yusufzai’s native Swat Valley and have blown up girls’ schools and publicly executed those they deem immoral. An army offensive in Swat forced many Taliban fighters to flee.

    So Anjem wants Shariah4Pakistan, good for him, maybe he’ll go & live there and stop poncing money off of the rest of us, the odious little twerp. I feel sorry for Pakistan though, having him interfering in their internal politics.

    As for the fatwa, we’ll have to wait to see exactly how it’s worded. If there is any possibility that it could be construed as an incitement to violence then I do hope that the CPS and the police get involved really quickly.

  2. Stephen Mynett says:

    If true this is disgusting but I would like a little more evidence, especially as the source is only one American newspaper so far. I know nothing about the Orlando paper, so waiting before I judge. Could be another spurious outage from the American Taliban.

    Stephen Mynett: When I forwarded this story to Barry I did say that I hadn’t been able to find corroborative evidence, but it is now being reported on a multitude of websites.

    As several are quoting what others are saying, I do suppose that they might ALL be wrong – though I doubt it very much!

  5. Stephen Mynett says:

    Thanks Barriejohn: Yes the evidence is now stacking up. Of course, when we criticise theme we will all be branded islamophobes. I find it interesting that if you look at the reaction to criticism or being forced to obey the law, christians are martyrs and muslims victims of hate crime.
    Strange people these Religionists.

  6. Marky Mark says:

    I don’t see much difference with this religious action and the Christian politician from Arkansas who said unruly children should be put to death cuz the bible say so.

    What is with these people and their hatred for children? This proves that questioning religious dogma is a natural thought process, and their determination to suppress such thoughts, “Don’t think for yourselves…just believe what I say”

  7. Trevor Blake says:

    Thank goodness that UK government has its priorities straight. Here’s a Muslim announcing in public he is going to coordinate the murder of a child, and diddly-boo is being done about it. Meanwhile, Tommy Robbinson of the English Defence League is in prison for the serious crime of Lecturing While Critical of Sharia.

  8. remigius says:

    Trevor, ‘…a Muslim announcing in public he is going to coordinate the murder of a child.’

    Mmmm. He hasn’t actually said that. In fact he’s refused to say what her punishment will be. Could be a beating, lashes, or acid in the face. You never know with Islam.

  15. Robster says:

    So those evil westeners are mocking islamic stuff like the sack the women wear and their jihad silliness (Wasn’t there a jihad in Star wars?). But only because it’s so mockable. If islam has but one redeeming feature, it’s the humour. Old allah, what a joke. Mo, his pedophile son, a joke too. The silly stuff the women are forced to wear always a giggle (unless you’re actually wearing it) and not forgetting the endless prayer nonsense, facing Mecca five times a day worship an imaginary fairy in the sky that remains silent and invisible and comletely useless. All of it’s a funny thing that deserves no respect at least amongst those with more than one functioning brain cell.

    Going back to Trevor Blake’s point about the inaction of the British govt, just how ‘free’ is the government considering the power of Arab oil money, it’s ownership of British industry, and the UK being up to its neck in debt?

    A radio station in Leeds, which is aimed at the Asian community, has been fined after a presenter advocated homophobic violence and branded gay people as “evil” and “shameful”.

    http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2012/11/22/london-university-to-host-anti-gay-extremist-islamic-preacher/

    The talk is going ahead as we have a legal duty to protect freedom of speech and we have asked for assurances from the Union of Brunel Students that this person will not breach the policies of the university, such as those on equality and diversity. However, if we are concerned that these policies will be breached, the event will not be allowed to take place.

    Don’t you need intelligence to attend university any more?

  21. Stonyground says:

    So what they are in fact saying is that we have a legal responsibilty to protect free speech and they will do so as long as you promise not to say anything that we disagree with.

    “Don’t you need intelligence to attend university any more?”

    Since the introduction of Tony Blair’s prizes for all education education education system, I don’t believe that you do. My sister in law teaches at a university and has been confronted with students who have never read a whole book. They have no clue how to do research and expect to be just given facts on a plate in order to write their papers.

    It also appears that intelligent school leavers are now avoiding universties and finding other ways to gain employment. The reasons being, first that having a degree has been devalued because so many people now have them, and second, student debt.

    And for our freedom of speech shall we all draw cartoons of his prophet in flagrante? No? Because the aggressively delusional believe that such liberties only ever work in their favour.

    Yes, indeed.

  25. Trevor Blake says:

    Something utterly baffling to freethinkers in the USA about UK media: in the UK, there is a group of people called ‘Asians.’ It’s not the same group that people in the USA refer to as Asians. Nominally it means Muslims, Sikhs, Hindu and other groups more or less from a certain large geographical area. But it’s usually not used to describe the activities of Sikhs or Hindu. It’s a way to describe the activities of Muslims without out-and-out saying ‘another group of Muslims arrested for grooming children for prostitution’ or ‘another Muslim charged with planting explosives.’ Instead, it’s Asian gangs that groom the children and Asian men who plant the bombs. Because there’s nothing worse in the whole world than offending the feelings of Muslims.

  26. barriejohn says:

    Trevor Blake: It pains me to say it, but the Mail is right. Most of the Left Wing seem determined to say nothing that would upset Muslims/Asians or be construed as being critical of them!

    Shariah4Pakistan’s website claims:

    “3.The Taliban & Muslims must believe in Islamic education for both boys and girls with segregation as specified under the Shari’ah. Indeed when not involved in war those amongst the Taleban opened many schools for women and even the British restricted education during the Second World War due to the obvious dangers.”

    http://www.anjemchoudary.com/press-releases/clarification-on-malala-fatwa-from-shari-ah4pakistan

    Here’s a fuller and more honest explanation:

    “Education
    The Taliban claimed to recognize their Islamic duty to offer education to both boys and girls, yet a decree was passed that banned girls above the age of 8 from receiving instruction. Maulvi Kalamadin insisted it was only a temporary suspension and that females would return to school and work once facilities and street security were adapted to prevent cross-gender contact. The Taliban wished to have total control of Afghanistan before calling upon an Ulema body to determine the content of a new curriculum to replace the Islamic yet unacceptable Mujahadin version.[2]
    The female employment ban was felt greatly in the education system. Within Kabul alone the ruling affected 106,256 girls, 148,223 boys and 8,000 female university undergraduates. 7,793 female teachers were dismissed, a move that crippled the provision of education and caused 63 schools to close due to a sudden lack of educators.[9] Some women ran clandestine schools within their homes for local children, or for other women under the guise of sewing classes, such as the Golden Needle Sewing School. The learners, parents and educators were aware of the consequences should the Taliban discover their activities, but for those who felt trapped under the strict Taliban rule, such actions allowed them a sense of self-determination and hope.[13]”

    And yet there was not a word of protest when a christian couple were turned down the opportunity to foster because they believe that homosexuality is wrong. When is Melanie and our MPs going to stand up for the christians of this country.

    DA: Um point is Ken;

    Well it’s obvious the Taliban are frightened to death of girls being educated. To my mind a sign of weakness rather than strength. To what extent this represents all Islamic opinion is a moot point.

    As for the Catholics, you miss the point – they don’t deny women dominion over their own bodies, rather that of the unborn (but OT)

    I think this girl is to be commended for her bravery in standing up for what she thinks is right. She’s got more guts than many a Western politician.

  35. Angela_K says:

    @Ken. “As for the Catholics, you miss the point – they don’t deny women dominion over their own bodies, rather that of the unborn (but OT)”

    The hysterically charged “unborn”, it’s a collection of cells and sometimes foetus! And what about the catholic church denying contraception, strange non denial of dominion over a woman’s body.

    One day Ken, you may wake from you religious stupor, look back at the utter tosh you believe and realise you have been rather foolish.

  36. David Anderson says:

    Waste of time Angela_K, I don’t think Ken will ever get it.

  37. Ken says:

    Angela_K “The hysterically charged “unborn”, it’s a collection of cells and sometimes foetus! And what about the catholic church denying contraception, strange non denial of dominion over a woman’s body.”

    I notice as always the unborn have to be de-humanised into a few cells, referred to as ‘it’. When do they cease to be a collection of cells? Are adults also just a collection of cells, and can others decide their fate? Is post-birth abortion acceptable, as the first ghouls have recently claimed?

    As for Catholics and contraception, I’m not Catholic and don’t agree with them on that particular issue. You’ll have to take that up with a Catholic. It’s not something they are in much of a position to enforce anyway.

    Western Europe has been so busy extinguishing its unborn in the womb that it is creating a demographic time-bomb in which Muslims who don’t do this may even become the dominant religion. Food for thought for the current culture of death.

  38. remigius says:

    ‘Are adults also just a collection of cells…’

    Yes, Ken. Though you may be surprised to discover that only 10% of the cells in your body are actually human.

    Oh dear Ken. The time limit on legal abortions in the UK is set so that any collection of cells or proto-feutus when aborted is non-viable. You overlook the spontaneous “abortion” or miscarriage that is a common occurrence – funny your god is OK with that.
