Paki Down’s Syndrome Girl Facing Death Nothing New in Islamic World (Where Mentally Disabled Are Seen as Subhuman)

By Debbie Schlussel

As I’ve noted several times on this site, the Islamic world doesn’t view the mentally disabled as human. In fact, Muslims regard mentally disabled fellow Muslims as damaged goods to be disposed of like an abortion. And, so, I am neither shocked nor surprised that a Pakistani girl with Down’s Syndrome may face a death sentence in a blasphemy trial. After all, Muslims in Gaza and the Palestinian Authority constantly send their mentally disabled with suicide bombs to blow themselves and Israeli soldiers up. Muslims in Iraq did this with a mentally disabled Muslim woman whom they tried to use as a bomb against American soldiers and other Iraqis. And I noted that Palestinian Muslims who wanted to get rid of their Down’s Syndrome boy sent him into a restricted area where they knew he’d be shot up by Israeli soldiers (the soldiers saved him from his horrid family). My own former Saudi Muslim neighbors (I’ll tell you about them another time) locked their empty apartment and left their Down’s Syndrome child to roam the parking lot helplessly (and she couldn’t speak English or communicate). So, this story is just consistent with how they treat those who are handicapped, either physically or mentally. That this girl in Pakistan is a Christian makes her doubly subhuman in their minds.

Greater Barbaria: How Muslims Treat The Mentally Disabled

A Christian girl with Down’s Syndrome has been arrested on blasphemy charges in Pakistan, accused of burning pages inscribed with verses from the Koran, police and activists said on Sunday.

Police arrested Rimsha, who is recognized by a single name, on Thursday after she was reported holding in public burnt pages which had Islamic text and Koranic verses on them, a police official told AFP.

A conviction for blasphemy is punishable by death in Pakistan. . . .


Angry Muslim protesters held rallies demanding she be punished, said the official, who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the case. . . .

Rimsha was produced before a court on Friday and remanded in custody for 14 days, another police official said. She is expected to go before the court again by end of this month. . . .

The girl’s alleged behavior sparked Muslim anger in Mehrabad, an area of the capital where she lives with her parents and where up to 800 Christians reside. Christians there were forced to leave amid mounting fury. . . .

“She was just 11 to 12 years old,” he said, adding it was a hugely sensitive issue and “we would not like it to be mishandled and would rather want to resolve it amicably”.

Even if this girl is set free, she faces a likely death sentence anyway, as one or more Pakistanis will probably kill her. Oh, and by the way, this isn’t just “a few extremists who hijacked a religion.” Nope, it’s a sea of Muslims throughout Pakistan who mostly want her dead. It’s not just a few fringe “extremist Muslims.” Remember . . .

THIS. IS. ISLAM.

That saddens me as a Muslim; since blasphemy is not publishable in Islam and we are instructed per the Quran to ignore those who are blasphemous to us and our religion. I wish more Muslims follow the Quran as it is without outside influences such as non-proven Hadiths and Fatwas; which both are things that emerged after the death of the Prophet.

“(Muslims) are those who walk on the earth in humility, and when the ignorant address them, they say ‘Peace’” (Quran 25:63)
==================
“And when they hear vain talk, they turn away therefrom and say: ‘To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant.’” (Quran 28:55)
==================
“When ye hear the signs of Allah held in defiance and ridicule, ye are not to sit with them unless they turn to a different theme.” (Quran 4:140)
==================
“And those who take as protectors others besides Him – Allah doth watch over them; and thou art not the disposer of their affairs.” (Quran 42:6)
==================
“Let there be no compulsion in religion…” (Quran 2:256)
==================
“To you be your Way, and to me mine.” (Quran 109:6)
==================
“Say, ‘The truth is from your Lord’: Let him who will believe, and let him who will reject it..” (Quran 18:29)
==================
“Those who pervert the Truth in Our Signs are not hidden from Us… Do what ye will: Verily He seeth (clearly) all that ye do.” (Quran 41:40)
==================
“And to rehearse the Qur’an: and if any accept guidance, they do it for the good of their own souls, and if any stray, say: ‘I am only a Warner.’” (Quran 27:92)
==================
“Say: ‘O ye men! Now Truth hath reached you from your Lord! those who receive guidance, do so for the good of their own souls; those who stray, do so to their own loss: and (say) I am not (set) over you to arrange your affairs.’” (Quran 10:108)
==================

    Only problem is those are the early Medina verses you cite, when Mohammed was weak and needed to paint his new religion in glowing colors of peace and tolerance.

    They were superseded by the later war-like and savage Meccan verses, in which Mohammed comes across as triumphant, blood-thirsty and unforgiving. That is the Islam we know today and I wonder why you do not cite them.

    Islam is not a religion known for benevolence and respect for human life. We see the results everyday across the Muslim World.

    NormanF on August 20, 2012 at 1:05 pm

      Actually, it’s the reverse – the Meccan suras precede the ones from Muhammed’s Medinan period. Our Muslim friend, PP, cites only Meccan passages. And he never bothers to tell us that those passages have all been cancelled (or, at the very least, reinterpreted), based upon the Islamic doctrine of Naskh, or abrogation. (2:106 – “None of Our revelations do We abrogate or cause to be forgotten, but We substitute something better or similar: Knowest thou that Allah hath power over all things?) The later Medinan verses, violent and hateful, are the ones that hold sway, particularly suras 2 and 5. The latter (see 9:5) for example, commands: “When the sacred months have passed, slay the idolators wherever ye find them, and take them captive, and besiege them, and prepare for them each ambush.”)

      commonsense on August 21, 2012 at 5:34 pm

        For anyone who cares, I wrote: “The later Medinan verses, violent and hateful, are the ones that hold sway, particularly suras 2 and 5.” I intended to write “suras 9 and 5.” Sura 2, however, is also rife with hatred for unbelievers, specifically the Jews, who are castigated for refusing to accept Muhammed as the Final Prophet.

        commonsense on August 21, 2012 at 11:06 pm

      Oh, and I’m assuming that PP doesn’t cite any of the Medinan suras because he’s practicing taqiyya, or deception, which is religiously sanctioned lying designed to promote Islam.

      commonsense on August 21, 2012 at 5:51 pm

    PP,

    You’re full of bull.

    As Goes... on August 20, 2012 at 4:52 pm

PP your “handle” describes Islam.

You’re following a sick, satanic faux religion. It’s be better for you to be a disingenuous Scientologist.

Skunky on August 20, 2012 at 12:19 pm

    Yup. I felt sorry for a Muslim friend considering changing their religion.

    Not only would they cut themselves off from family, they would risk a death sentence going to any Muslim land.

    The truth is its not easy for people growing up in such a world to do things we take for granted.

    Its not just the disabled they see as subhuman, its all of us who aren’t blessed by Allah.

    And even being Muslim is no guarantee for your own life as we all too well know.

    NormanF on August 20, 2012 at 1:18 pm

Yet another reason to oppose Islam in all of its sadistic guises. Great job, Debbie.

Seek on August 20, 2012 at 12:33 pm

    They desecrate Korans themselves and its not a big deal with them.

    But they don’t like infidels doing it and that’s when you see their inner fanatic climb out! Its not an attractive sight.

    All the more reason we should not want more Muslims here.

    NormanF on August 20, 2012 at 1:26 pm

PP, I assume your a great person (if you and I met in real life, I wouldn’t mind being pals with you buddy) and quote many koranic verses in context, but the problem is that MANY of your co-religionists take your religion WAY too seriously, and that’s why I refer to them as “koran-thumpers”!

As Skunky said to you, become an apostate and either go to another faith or become an agnostic/atheist/anti-theist!

Regarding the story, I feel for this poor child in Pakistan on what she’s going through with those fundamentalists muslim whackjobs, and also, where is the International Community on this issue? They should do this kids bidding and protect her from these subhamn vermin who wants this poor child dead.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on August 20, 2012 at 12:50 pm

SeanR,

The few genuinely liberal and tolerant Muslims in Pakistan who have tried to protect minority rights have been murdered.

That tells us which way the political winds are blowing in the Muslim World.

Debbie’s right the kid’s probably going to die any way. And the decent people who can help her are an ineffectual minority or dead which amounts to the same thing.

There is no future for free thought and tolerance in the Muslim World. That’s just the way things are and to those like Debbie who have Muslim friends – that’s a fact of life to which there isn’t light in the offing at the end of the tunnel.

When you read a story like this one – keep that in mind.

NormanF on August 20, 2012 at 1:32 pm

On this was just last month in Pakistan:

“Last month, an angry crowd seized a man accused of blasphemy, and who was also said to be mentally unstable, from a police station and burnt him to death in the Bahawalpur area of Punjab province.”

Yup – burning people to death for blasphemy without a trial – that’s Islam! In which being accused of showing contempt towards the Koran can get you killed. And it takes nothing to get mobs to want to tear someone apart.

There is no such as an Islamic civilization. Who in the West nowadays burns people? If you think it can’t happe here, think again.

NormanF on August 20, 2012 at 1:47 pm

PP is simply practicing taqiyya – lying and distorting the truth to fool us Infidels. He doesn’t believe that load of crap, I guarantee.

DS_ROCKS! on August 20, 2012 at 2:25 pm

    DSRocks,

    What happens WHEN NO ONE HERE BELIEVES A WORD PP WRITES?

    I was born at night, but not last night.

    As Goes... on August 20, 2012 at 4:55 pm

Well, Rimsha is lucky in that since she suffers from Down’s Syndrome, Muslims may not bother raping her, as they would have had she simply been a Christian/Sikh/Hindu not suffering from any mental conditions.

But given that for Muslims, women have half the intelligence as men (it’s there in the Sunnah) and that they are ’tilth’ i.e. they are only good for breeding purposes, why do Muslims care that a Muslim woman would suffer any mental illness? Do they actually genetically trace sources of illnesses? Given all the incest that goes on amongst their peoples, of course not! I can understand them sending male mental Muslims (am I being redundant here?) to their deaths, but female mental Muslims seem like just more tilths. They could go through their temporary marriages, and discard them like toilet paper just like they do w/ everybody else.

The other thing about any Muslim country, or any country that has enough Muslims, is that if Shariah ain’t already enforced by law, it will be enforced by Muslim vigilantes who’d go unchecked. Which is why all the pretence about some countries following Shariah law and others not is totally worthless.

Infidel on August 20, 2012 at 2:40 pm

    Infidel,

    You make good points. Unfortunately, I have no doubt that they are raping and sodomizing her right now…

    Savages have no limits….

    As Goes... on August 20, 2012 at 4:58 pm

It’s been well noted, over the years, that Islam is genrally intolerant of anyone with a mental handicap. However, looking at Syria, where Assad is butchering thousands of his own people, just like his father did in the early ’80s. Then, looking at his Assad’s closest ally, Iran, who sent several thousand of its “volunteer” children to detonate Iraqi mines, by stepping on them, during the Iraq-Iran war, somehow, I don’t see Islam as being the “religion of tolerance” or the “religion of peace”, as noted by many politicos and the majority of the left-leaning press.

Neils60 on August 20, 2012 at 2:41 pm

One more thing Islam has in common with Nazi Germany.

I_AM_ME on August 20, 2012 at 3:31 pm

When I was in middle school, I remember reading the follow-up to Not Without My Daughter, For The Love of a Child, which was filled with different accounts of international child abduction. One of the accounts most similar to Betty Mahmoody’s indeed took place in Pakistan, and the child in question was diagnosed as having a very mild case of Downs’. The mother was cautioned to never reveal this to anyone, as it’d have been a death sentence for the little boy.

Clearly not much has changed.

Robert on August 20, 2012 at 3:37 pm

So the islamoscumbags are at it again. Is anyone surprised? If anyone is subhuman it’s the muslimscumbags.

M. Hartwood on August 20, 2012 at 4:05 pm

I am extremely uneducated regarding Islam (though I think I know enough by watching their actions). All the comments have been very eye opening. As a Christian in America I have become more aware and concerned about rising Islamic communities and population. The God blessed open nature of our country and it’s freedoms may have reached the point of our undoing. Not because of Islam but because democracy allows a voice for the harsh slanted views of the human secular liberal movement. After 9/11 I became very concerned having started a family just two years prior. My heart aches for my children growing up in what I believe is a harsh, freedom-strangled future.

Brian Phillips on August 20, 2012 at 4:50 pm

BP,

Hop on over to the NYPD “Bacon Goes To The Dogs” thread and you’ll learn what kind of future Islam intends to leave us.

A future in which we can’t eat what we want where want and a future in which we can’t walk our dogs legally in public – because that would offend Islam.

It wants to take our freedoms away as well as our very lives.

This is what is going to happen as we allow more and more of them in Canada and the US. The writing is on the wall.

NormanF on August 20, 2012 at 5:51 pm

I’d hate to be disabled in that society.

Ghostwriter on August 20, 2012 at 6:32 pm

I am a disabled person and have family in Israel. Two strikes against me. My third strike? I am an American.

Rest assured, I have no plans to be traveling to Greater Islamic Barbaria in the future.

NormanF on August 20, 2012 at 6:48 pm

It is a very sad and grotesque thing. There is no compassion in Islam.

Looks like PP is speechless. Nice taqiyyah, PP. Of course, it doesn’t work over here: every regular could demolish you (and Norman does an A+ job).

this is absolutely horrible and unbelievable…..thanks for keeping us informed, Debbie!

Dave on August 21, 2012 at 9:25 am

Its true that the Medina verses contain violence while the Mecca ones dont but why is that? Its very simple and reasoned.

The Prophet was in a state of war when he was at Medina, the apostates took control of Mecca and kicked him and his companions out of it; so of course, he went to Medina and raised an army to defeat those who kicked him out of his land.

PP on August 21, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    PP on August 21, 2012 at 2:42 pm

    Once in Medina, your “prophet” turned to robbing caravans and justifying these actions by declaring that Allah approved of taking booty from unbelievers; his actions appealed to an increasing number of cutthroats – who came to be known as “the faithful” and those who were “rightly guided”, etc. who saw that they could commit acts of robbery and murder and be considered pious. Muhammed, as his successes in murder and mayhem continued, inevitably turned his animus toward the civilized and successful Jewish tribes of Medina, which he attacked and ultimately destroyed, always citing invented grievances which justified his crimes. In his post-Meccan period, Muhammed was in a state of war with everyone, and he was always the aggressor.

    commonsense on August 21, 2012 at 5:47 pm

But again; the Medina verses as well do not say that we should kill anyone who is peaceful; such as this scenario of the story above.

PP on August 21, 2012 at 2:44 pm

This is a clever way the family disposes of an unwanted child. Set her up with the burnt evidence and let the officials do the rest. I didn’t notice any family there to console or comfort the girl. Show me where I am wrong.

Rochelle on August 21, 2012 at 3:26 pm

@commonsense, this is untrue. The Jews in Mecca were never attacked by the Prophet! Until today the Jews have places to worship their religion freely in Turkey, Lebanon, Syria and Egypt. Saudi Arabia has an extremist regime so the religous opression they practice should not be related to the Prophet.

@PP:

I CAN LOGICALLY SHOW THE KORAN IS NOT THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD THE CREATOR .

IN THE KORAN IT ALLOWS A MAN TO BEAT HIS WIFE -SO LET US LOGICALLY MEDICALLY SCIENTIFFICALLY BREAK IT DOWN WHAT DAMGE IS DONE TO THE FAITH/RELIGION OF ISALM

WHEN A MAN THROUGH MARRIGE IS WED TO A WOMAN AND SHE DISPLEASES HIM IN SOME WAY THAT REQUIRES HIM TO YELL AT HER OR STRIKE HER OR INFLICT WOUNDS UPON HER WEATHER IT BE KORANIC TRIBAL OR CULTURAL MIXES WITH RELIGIOUS INTERPETATION -IN ANY EVENT IT CAN COMPROMISE THE WOMANS REPRODICTIVE ABILITY TO HAVE A NORMAL NON DAMAGED CHILD WEATHER IT BE PHYISICAL OR STRESS ANXEITY DEPRESSION MENTAL PROBLEMS EITHER WAY – BEFORE SHE IS PREGNAT OR WHEN SHE IS PREGNANT SUCH ABUSE RISKS THE HEALTH OF THE CHILD OR THE FUTURE CHILD OR THE MOTHER OR FUTURE MOTHER TO BE -THIS IS MEDICAL AND SCIENTIFFIC PROVEN FACT PP -SO IF A WIFES HEALTH IS COMPROMISED THE CHILD TO BE “”S HELATH IS COMPROMISED WICH WEAKENS A FAMILY AND FUTURE GENERATIONS THIS IN TURN BY NUMBER WEAKENS THE EXTENDED FAMILY BY NUMBERS OF HEALTHY MEMBERS -WICH INTURN AFFECTS THE HEALTHY NUMBERS IN A CLAN -THEN A BAND THEN A TRIBE ALSO LOOSES NUMBERS AND THEN A PEOPLE THEN A NATION THEN A RELIGION -SO IN ALL THIS PRACTICE OVER ALL BY NUMBERS OF MISCHARAGES OR DISABLED CHILDREN OR DAMAGED WIVES OR MENTALLY ILL NON FUNCTIONABLE MOTHERS WEAKENS THE CHILDS NARTUAL ABILITY TO BE FORMED HEALTHY AND BE BORN AND IT SLASHES THE NUMBERS OF AVAILABLE HEALTHY CHILDREN TO WORK FOR /IN A FAMILY AND AFECTS ITS ABILITYS TO BE HEALTHY AND FIGHT ENEMYS OF THE RELIGION OR THE PEOPLE SO THIS PRACTICE OF ABUSE OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN OR CHILDREN TO BE .OVERALL DAMAGES A NATION OR RELIGIONS ABILITY TO PERFORM COLLECTIVELY SO – HOW CAN A PROPHET AND A GOD CREATOR ALLOW THIS WHEN IT WEAKENS A TRIBE A PEOPLE ASOCIETY A CLUTURE AND A RELIGION .SO ITS OBVIOUS THIS CANNOT COME FROM GOD OR HIS PROPHET BECAUSE ITS PROVEN TO BE AN INCORRECT AND WRONG PRACTICE -SO THERE FOR EITHER A FAWTWA IS WRON A PROPHET IS WRONG OR A GOD IS WRONG . SO TELL ME AGAIN HOW PERFECT ALLAH IS ???????????WOULD HE NOT SEE THS IN THE FUTURE BY USEING WISDOM IN HIS KORANIC WORD SINCE SCIENCE AND MEDICINE PROVE THIS ??????AND IT STATES THE TRUTH ?????EXPLAIN PLEASE S.

SHADDOWCASTER on August 27, 2012 at 4:23 am

@PP… Got any proof for your evidence that Quran encourages a man to hit his wife? I challenge you to bring any verse which states the above statement. According to the Prophet (SAW) sunnah, he (SAW) never hit a woman, a slave, a child or even an animal. Whereas, if so-called civilized Western people open up their past they’ll find that blacks were discriminated almost all the time. Women were forced to stay inside & not work. Even today some of those ‘civilized’ people still rape women. Women particularly in the West are not safe from the dirty NON-MUSLIM men. Now tell me why does this happen?

Just don’t go too scientific, talk about all the facts that Science proofs today with the help of the Quran, which was revealed 1400 years ago to an unlettered man. Today the Science claims that there exists a partition b/w a salty & sweet water. Our Lord, Allah, revealed this piece of information 1400 years ago to an unlettered man. WHat would you say about this now? This is not just one example, this is one among a similar 10000 examples. DOes any religious book in the World states any Scientific, religious, economical facts?

XYZ on September 30, 2012 at 9:37 am

I THINK HER PARENTS SENT HER TO HOLD THESE PAGES IN PUBLIC BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO GET RID OF HER. IT IS SO OBVIOUS; HOW COULD A 12 Y.O GIRL WITH DOWN SYNDROME POSSIBLY KNOW WHAT SHE WAS DOING? PERHAPS IT IS THE OTHER WAY AROUND AND HER CHRISTIAN PARENTS WANT TO GET RID OF HER… AFTER ALL HERE IN THE WEST WOMEN GET ABORTIONS LEFT AND RIGHT EVEN IF THE CHILD IS HEALTHY LET ALONE ABNORMAL! ABORTION IS UNLAWFUL IN ISLAM!
