Shameful.. shocking. .horrifying… Un-Islamic of course.
I saw the video on Geo TV… have been under shock the whole day… like so many others. I feel her as a member of our family… the man who went with her probably was not punished. I saw another cultural stigma…. She was shouting… Leave me.. Meree tauba meree maan ki tauba….. Since FATHERS in that culture do not apologies.
I received an unofficial information (though this was off the record, but the person reporting was reliable)… Some Talib has proposed her and the girl had refused.. and she was pinned down as soon as they got some opportunity.

Roots of Such behaviors are multifaceted including jihalat to petro-dollars. Nizam Adl is approved by ANP government which is probably representative of NWFP people. They strongly are arguing in favor of that. Even amir-ul- momnin Imam of revolution Nawaz Sharif has endorsed that and has given his blessing for that
What ever is happening in Sawat PPP is not responsible for that. Story is long and recently U.S. has categorically blamed one agency for that. There is beautiful video on PBS – front line which shows how real rulers of Pakistan are dealing with that. I wish I had exact web address for that.

I just called friends/family in Karachi, Lahore, Quetta and Islamabad. Reaction against the barbarism is fierce in Karachi and Lahore, muted in Islamabad, and subdued in Quetta. The last is in virtual control of Taliban.
They are begging for support, naturally asking us to write to congress men, senators, the state department.
When I offered that we will write to Pakistan embassy too, they laughed with derision, and used terminology, not suited for mixed company. The bigot groups have said not a word. Before this outrage, the new Jamat-e-Islami (JI) Chief Munawwar Hasan had actually demanded that Swat Shariah be imposed all over Pakistan. If we do not act now, Pakistan will become Afghanistan..

Taliban beating the girl mercilessly, click here to see the video
This is shocking and makes me ashamed that this is happening in the same country of which Sindh is also a part. I am angry as hell! These beasts and their supporters have no shame and their hearts are devoid of peaceful teachings of Islam. Beating mercilessly the poor woman on the pretext that “She came out of her house with another guy who was not her husband” is barbaric and it is obvious they do not live in past and are bent upon destruction and treating people with such cruelty.
May Allah punish these beasts if the government lacks the courage to save the wretched country of Pakistan from these barbarians.

Me, my family and 2 guests have just watched the video clippings on GEO TV in which three mullahs are beating and slashing a 17 years pashtoon girl in general public, she was awarded this punishment by shareeat court of SAWAT for alleged involvement in some minor non-cognizable crime.
After seeing her agony, helplessness, humiliation and hearing her painful cries almost everybody has tears in eyes, we have asked kids to leave the room. She is encircled by Taliban rulers of swat and a crowd of more than 2000 locals and no one dares to stop those terrorist Mullas. we are shocked.

Pashtun nation once again bled by the hands of terrorists who committed suicide attack on a mosque in Jamrud, Khyber Agency FATA in which more than 100 innocent Pashtun martyred while more than 150 were serious wounded. This is an other declaration of war against Pashtun nation when their worship place was attacked after the explosion at the shrine of great Pashtun/Afghan poet Rehman baba which was targeted by the terrorists few days ago. Pashtuns’ blood has turned cheaper than water in the area administered by the Pakistan.

Why don’t the establishment accept 1940’s Lahore resolution of Pakistan ??? which says clearly the word **SOVEREIGN STATES**!! After losing half of country (east Pakistan or Bangladesh), the establishment still dreaming? Why shall the provinces who share 70% of revenue suffer? For what? In which AYAT it is written that Islamabad/ establishment can exploit other provinces in the name of Islam and Pakistan.
ASK BALOCHI, ASK PASHTOON, ASK SINDHIS, ASK BALTISTANIS, ASK GILGITIES AND ASK SARAIKIS, WHY ALL OF THEM SAY THAT ESTABLISHMENT IS EXPLOITING THEM.

LAHORE: Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Iftikhar Chaudhry will continue to remain a Provisional Constitution Order (PCO) judge if he does not take a fresh oath under the constitution, Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam- Fazl (JUI-F) chief Fazlur Rehman said on Monday. A private TV channel cited him as saying that he had not been taken into confidence over the reinstatement of the CJP. He claimed he had merely been a spectator in the decision taken by the government. He said that while the judicial crisis had been ostensibly resolved, there were still several glaring contradictions.

BAHAWALPUR, Pakistan (AP) – The compound bore no sign. Residents referred to it simply as the school for “jihadi fighters,” speaking in awe of the expensive horses stabled within its high walls – and the extremists who rode them bareback in the dusty fields around it. In classrooms nearby, teachers drilled boys as young as 8 in an uncompromising brand of Islam that called for holy war against enemies of the faith. Sitting cross-legged on the floor of the Dar-ul-uloom Madina school, they rocked back and forth as they recited sections of the Quran, Islam’s holy book.
