Here’s a perfect example of why Islam, as it stands today, can never co-exit with a 21st century civilization. Muslim Court Finally Deals Some Justice in Rape Case.
It's taken a year but rape victim Imrana has finally seen the Muslim court sentence her father-in-law to ten years in prison and a fine, most of which is to go to the victim. This was after some considerations influenced by extreme Muslim clerics.
The solution by Muslim clerics. Don’t punish the father-in-law!
Initially the clerics decreed that the victim and her attacker should marry, but the All India Muslim Personal Law Board did not accept this.
Wait a second. We were wrong. This is what she should do according to the wise clerics.
They then said that, because of the circumstances of the rape, she should now treat her husband as her son.
Umm…no. That’s not right. How about this?
Then, clerics demanded that the husband of the victim, Nur Ilahi, should desert her.
Ah, but justice prevailed.
All these opinions were eventually ignored and Imrana's case given a more logical verdict of imprisonment of her 65-year-old father-in-law, Ali Mohammed.
I wonder whose civilization mores pressured that outcome.
