Girl set ablaze for wearing lipstick


news.ninemsn.com.au

An 11-year-old girl was set on fire by a relative in India's northern city of Jaipur for wearing lipstick and being "inappropriately dressed", media reports said.

The girl suffered burns over 90 per cent of her body. Her chances of survival were bleak, police officers told the NDTV network on Saturday.

So where are the Muslim apologist now? So many Muslims are quick to call us racist and intolerant if you criticize Islam. They view any criticism as an attack on them. Well, I am here right now to CRITICIZE this barbaric act and I say this has NOTHING to do with religion. This is all about a filthy pedophile that couldn't get his way, so he uses the ONLY religion that condones this behavior to hide behind - ISLAM.

Please Muslims, feel free to jump in and condemn this action!

holy crap. okay. hmmmm-hmmm, (clears throat) allright. so, this is strictly as a result of the religion of Islam, in other words, things just as evil as say...setting an 11 year old girl on fire have not happened in other religions? look, my heart bleeds also, a little, but is this worse than reports of soldiers from a "christian world" who have entered one's home and raped the children in front of the parents? i myself, AM religious. i do believe in God. but i do not see how you can pigeonhole this to a specific religion. i could be wrong.

I'd love to see the outrage from the Muslim members of ATS. Yeah, this was a one line post, but I couldn't think of anything else to say. Oh, okay, on further review, I'd like to express my outrage for this man's barbaric acts. Acts: attempted molestation of a child and burning the child. What is up with all these religious zealots of all religious persuasion?

So I am confused. Are you saying this was the result of him being a Muslim or that he was a psycho?

You are saying Islam supports this? Or are you saying Islam indirectly supports this because there isn't an outcry against it from the Muslim folk?

What I was saying is:

A. He is a psychotic pervert, but has justified his actions by claiming it was in the name of Islam. Only Islam says it is ok to punish women if they dress "inappropriately". If he was a Christian for example (which I am not by the way) then he could not have used this defense. So in a nutshell, Islam "allows" these freaks a get-out--of-jail free card so to speak.

B. And Yes, I am saying Islam indirectly supports this because there isn't an outcry against it from the Muslim folk!!!

If Muslims condemned this type of behavior hundreds of years ago then we wouldn't be here discussing this right now. But instead, the liberal Muslims look at the ground and shuffle their feet - a little embarrassed, but not prepared to speak out.

I really don't care what religion it is. Bab behavior is bad behavior and I think ANY religion that claims to be of God should step in and STOP this nonsense.

Holy hell on earth man.

This isn't the first story like this to come out of the region either.
Then again, 1.2+billion people on a subcontinet less then half the size of the united states, theres going to be some crazy people...

No one should make the acusation that all muslims support this.
However, people of western european decent, don't do this kind of thing.

This is in northern india, and closer then you think to Pakistsan.

just not enough info to comment further.

Apparently the multiculturalists and the apologists for evil don't quite get it yet. It matters what you believe! This is standard practice for many in the Muslim faith. Honor is restored by bloodshed. Honor killings of daughters disgraced in some way is common.

This is the culture that europe decided would be a good idea to import en-masse. America will be trying to do the same shortly, perhaps the stealth Muslim Obama will help out.

They wont condemn this because it goes on all the time. Did you know that if a Muslim man molests a young girl or teenager then its the child/teenagers fault! I watched a documentary a little while back about a 16 Muslim girl who was publicly hung on the back of a truck because a 47 year old married Muslim man molested her from the age of 12 and when he got caught doing it he blamed her and said she seduced him. What kind of sick # is that! I started a thread about the Muslim faith a while back and got roasted by Muslim ATSers but they still could not prove to me that i was wrong with my information. Heres the link.www.abovetopsecret.com...

I guess in India they equate lipstick with whores and prostitutes and I find this not dissimilar to the thread about the 15 year old girl who's pushed the limits of her sexuality in Ohio. The only difference is they didn't get to burn her they just called her a whore and praised her prosecution for child porn.

I don't see it as an exclusively Muslim thing, I think it has more to do with the social mores in that area and the lack of laws or people to stand up for women.

lol @ Muslim apologists...

No, my view is quite the opposite... this just adds to long list of atrocities that ALL religions have committed.

So... instead of apologizing for one religion... when all religions have done their fair share of disgusting acts... I say, let all the religions rot.

ALL of them.

You can say "Oh but my religion has done so much good..." pfft, I love hearing that one... gives me something to laugh at... no amount of charity work, or patting yourself on the back, can excuse you from the horrendous acts that all religions have carried out, and feel absolutely no guilt for.

When you're part of an organization that has committed atrocities... you get the heck out of that organization, abandon it... otherwise... you're just supporting the group for it's murderous history... and as such, are no better than those who directly committed the disgusting acts.



However, this view would make the majority of the world an enemy... not that they don't deserve it, but it makes progress rather difficult.
So instead, I tend to deal with people on an individual basis, not as a group...
and as such, I will merely say, this was a case of a psychotic... not a religion.


I could add that in the year 2000, over 15,000 Christians committed murder in the US alone.
... but... we don't talk about that right? Lets just focus on the psychos you find in other religions right?
To what end?

Whats you're objective here?
Clearly you're trying to make other religions look evil compared to yours... but why?
Justification to shun them?
Do you get your jollies off of ridiculing other religions?
Are you trying to justify them as a lesser human, so you can feel better about eliminating them?

...

Sure... a woman in that religion committed a disgusting act...
But she's not the one pinning an entire religion with the act.
You are.


As I said... I'm tired of this crap from religion. They're all guilty of it... it's high time we moved on from this exclusive right to believe in a variation of an imaginary being.

Maybe instead of people looking for excuses for their "god" not being reachable or tangible... they should just face the obvious fact that's in front of their face...
"god" doesn't exist.

While Islam does condone this kind of treatment of women and children, India is a predominantly Hindu nation. Probably not a muslim perpetrator here, but just as well could have been.

Very well said Johnsky.

I was going to post that this reminded me of the Manitoba beheading... while the killer was of Asian descent i believe he at leased lived it, maybe grew up in, a 'Christian' country. Violence of the sort can strike any religions or people group... of course there are certain factors like poverty, crowded living conditions, and mental illness that can exacerbate it, but it's really a constant of humanity.

Saying one religion is the root of or a shelter for violence only exacerbates the problem.

Christianity as an organization has committed no such atrocities. It does not condone acts of cruelty or murder the way Islam does. And do not come back with examples from the crusades or the inquisition (political and medieval catholic church policies of the time), these are not a part of the belief in Christ as savior. Just go to any muslim nation and try stating your opinions on religion and see what happens. Even if we were a nation of atheists such as yourself, we would still be locked in mortal combat with the Islamo-Fascists, for it is their ultimate goal to either convert or kill every single human being on planet earth and it is the chief tenet of their dogma to do so. They are no less a threat today(indeed much worse) than the NAZIS were in the thirties. God exists everywhere.

I won't condemn a specific religion for its atrocities to mankind.

I want to know what kind of man lacks all forms of human compassion and is EVIL enough to set someone on fire intentionally? That kind of mindset scares the crap out of me.

I'm going to blame this one on the muslims as well. I once heard an imam say that if a woman is to dress "scantily" then it is okay for a man (or even a group of men) to rape her, because she's essentially asking to be raped anyway.

Furthermore, if a woman does not submit to a man's authority, according to islamic law, he can punish her any way he sees fit.

I'll tell you what, we have a lot of Muslims in this website, find me one that will denounce this act and I'll agree with you.

In my experience there are 2 kinds of Muslims, those who commit barbaric acts and those who agree with them.

Everyone talks about these "moderate" Muslims, where are they ???

You are correct. I never heard them condemning any of the terrorist activities the so called radicals engage in. None ever says that Israel deserves to exist.
