This incident is almost a week old, ive only just come across this story because the police have named the little girl "Alia" - Meaning Beautiful.
Original Story 15th March
Follow up Story 21st March
I dont know whether its because im sat here with a cold and feeling run down but this story breaks my heart. A newborn baby wrapped in plastic bags
and clothing, left in the middle of a country road to be found by a stranger. The parent(s) left a note with this little soul requesting an Islamic
burial and my first thought was: "How can you request a religious burial for your child when you cant even follow some of the basic principles of
your own faith"
For an act such as this, in a religion such as islam, you arent going to make it into heaven. I am at a loss to understand how a human being can
abandon their child and go back to their daily life. Its just not human. Just cant believe that such a thing would happen in a first world country.
A huge part of me wants start blaming religion because of how it controls people. I will admit that the facts about this case are not known but the
authorities seem to be suggesting that this was a child born outside of wedlock, the mother receiving no medical attention during or after birth. This
is not fact.
I dont want to start ranting about how "all muslims are backwards and evil" I dont believe everyone who follows a religion is brainwashed, it really
depends on how entrenched you are - Enough to abandon your child on a road is brainwashed enough for me.
