Pakistan: Jihadi Groups Greet Love-Marriage Couple with ‘Shoot-on-Sight’ Order

E-mail Print PDF

Ms. Tahira Hayat (27) and Mr. Saeed Hussain (29) from Azad Kashmir in Pakistan – who were in love and married before the First Class Magistrate in a civil court of Rawalpindi on January 26, 2012 – have been threatened by members of the Jihadi and banned terrorist groups for taking an un-Islamic course for marriage. It has been declared that they are liable to be killed wherever they are seen.

It is learnt that in 2007, the family members of Shah, the groom, had approached her family with a marriage-proposal between the two. The proposal was rejected by her parents on the ground that Shah, a transport driver, was not as well-educated as Tahira.

Tahira’s parents then forced her to marry her cousin in 2007 against her will. It is learnt that she had been beaten to comply with her parent’s wishes. After the marriage, she told her husband about her love for Shah, and that it would be difficult for her to carry on the marriage. As a result, her former husband divorced her in 2008. After the divorce, her parents treated her cruelly.

Meanwhile Tahira, a teacher, started her M. Ed. studies. During the M. Ed. examinations in January, she married Shah in the Rawalpindi civil court. Because love-marriage is against Islamic tradition, this infuriated her family and local Jihadi groups, and the couple went into hiding.

On January 28, when the couple was going to market from their hideout, more than six armed men tried to abduct her at gun point. As she was being dragged into a car, the couple begged the passers-by for help. With the help of people in the area, they were able to escape.

The couple informed the police, but since religious militants are involved, the police refused to file the case. The couple then filed an application before the First Class Magistrate of Rawalpindi in Punjab province.

It is learnt that on February 3, the parents of the girl with the help of officers from the Datot police station, Rawalakot, held a Jirga. The police forced the family members of the groom to attend. The jirga was heavily attended by the supporters of bride’s parents, including Molana Aftaab Kashir, Saleem Javed, Muhammad Hussain Bashani and Rasheed, who are leaders of banned Jihadi and terrorist groups. The bride’s parent’s party refused to accept apology from the groom’s family. They declared that the couple must be shot on sight. In front of the police, they demanded that groom’s family surrenders the couple, who would be shot in public before the whole community.

The girl’s father Hayat Khan Mughal with intervention of the police demanded the groom’s father to hand over Ms. Tahira, so that they could kill her in the name of honour as she had tarnished the honour of the Mughal family. They also demanded Rs. one million as well as one girl from the groom’s family as compensation. Police approved the deal, but the family members of the groom refused.

February 4 was fixed as the deadline to hand over the couple to Mughal’s family. Police was also instructed by the Jirga that if they arrest couple, they must hand them over to the Jihadi leaders for meting out the punishment.

When the couple was to visit the office of their lawyer in Rawalpindi, 130 kilometers away from their village, members of the Jihadi groups attacked the office premises with firearms, but were unable to enter the lawyer’s premises. They manhandled the people from the law office, and demanded at gun point about the whereabouts of the couple. They were ordered to inform them when the couple turn up.

Slavery will not end until
written by Yibel , February 10, 2012
Sir Winston Churchill, in the original unexpurgated 1899 edition of his book 'The River War' (about the war against the Muslim Mahdi in Sudan), writing about Islam:

"The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men."

Winston Churchill from a speech he made in the house of Commons in 1921, ironically entitled (I cannot believe this!) - 'the culture and glories of the Arab race', discussing the revivalist Wahabbi movement:

"The Wahabis profess a life of exceeding austerity, and what they practice themselves they rigorously enforce on others. They hold it as an article of duty, as well as of faith, to kill all who do not share their opinions and to make slaves of their wives and children. Women have been put to death in Wahabi villages for simply appearing in the streets.

If only politicians today would speak the truth and keep speaking it. I challenge any Muslim barrow out there to disprove Churchill's contentions.

Mindblowing

The lawlessness and crippled minds of savages never cease to amaze. Islam is the creator and the Muslims are the beneficiaries of the evil from the most "wondrous" Prophet Muhammed. Truly revolting!

They are not exactly lawless, they have sharia...but the crippled minds of savages fits...If you combine crippled minds and savagery with sharia, the result is Islam...

I hope these guiltless couple survive with their love and lives intact ...Islam is loveless
written by fineliving56 , February 11, 2012
Love bankrupted Islam, that produced, love bankrupted Muslims, is the core of these kinds of sad love stories … Muslims were not allowed to meet and mingle and fall in love that leads to marriage like it should be.
Muslim parents convince their young and clueless children to get married fast, and they tell them" love comes naturally in practice later'' …never mind when the two have nothing in common or they are, from different generations …
Financial security, is the main goal of the girl's Muslim family …
Muslims feel, there is nothing wrong with this exchange * fatter wallets for younger and prettier * … doesn't that remind us of the oldest profession for women added a marriage lousy certificate.
They are the most materialistic people you could find.

Surat 112
written by Yibel , February 12, 2012
Surat 112 is an ode to An/Anu, the eternal god, the unbegotten one, the original creator god of the Mesopotamians (Sumerians) of the city of Erech. His sign was the crescent moon and the horns of a bull. His consort was Ishtar whose sign was the planet Venus - The Star and the Crescent of Islam.

An/Anu is derived from the Sumerian “ana”, “heaven”, of which he was the principal deity. An/Anu was the visible sky containing the moon, sun and stars, but was also the invisible heavens considered beyond the sky. The Throne of Marduk, the creator of humans, was above these heavens and this is were the Tablets of Destiny were kept, the original Qur'an.

While I don't know anything about who Hud, Ismail, Sholeh/Salih and Idris worshiped because they are either not in the Bible at all (Hud, Salih and Idris), or they rejected the God of the Bible. Ismail/Ishmail probably worshiped the Egyptian gods since his
mother was an Egyptian and she married him to an Egyptian and One of his grandsons was a Hori, a worshiper of Horus. However, Adam, Nuh/Noah, Ibrahim/Abraham, Ishak/Isaac, Yacub/Jacob, and Yusuf/Joseph all worhiped YHVH, a TOTALLY different God from the 99 gods of the Qur'an.

I have read the Qur'an. It is a path straight to hell. Muhammad was listening to an evil djinn!

Refutation
written by Muslim & Proud , February 17, 2012
Mr William Gomes.

"Tahira’s parents then forced her to marry her cousin in 2007 against her will."

Forced marriage = HARAAM

"After the divorce, her parents treated her cruelly."

Treating your offspring cruelly = HARAAM

"Because love-marriage is against Islamic tradition, this infuriated her family and local Jihadi groups, and the couple went into hiding."

What a complete lie.

Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) marriage to Khadija (ra) was indeed a LOVE MARRIAGE.

"With the help of people in the area, they were able to escape."

"People" - Why don't you say MUSLIMS - bigot

"The girl’s father Hayat Khan Mughal with intervention of the police demanded the groom’s father to hand over Ms. Tahira, so that they could kill her in the name of honour as she had tarnished the honour of the Mughal family."

HARAAM

The article you wrote is so biased, it really is UNBELIEVEABLE

Unless of course you are biased 'against' Islam......

Aasma Riaz: "Thank you so much for your book "Islamic Jihad" and showing me the "Big Picture". For 7-8 days, I was glued to your book, absorbing so much information that I did not know existed. You have crisply covered so much in your book and quoted historical references extensively. I am just overwhelmed with different emotions after reading your book..., a priceless tome."
