U make my point

Reader comment on item: Arabian Sex Tourism
in response to reader comment: all they need is inspiration

Submitted by Sam Philar (United Arab Emirates), Nov 20, 2005 at 13:12

sir, u made my point when u so clearly stated the facts...thank you...that allows me to bring to light another problem that has gripped the islamic society...ie-the tendency to blindly follow the self-appointed religious leaders.
The fatwa issued in Imrana's case can not possibly be called a fatwa.

in my last coment i said that in Islam, what is unlawful can not nullify what is lawful and pure. This is clearly stated in the holy book Quran. Her marriage could not possibly have been nullified by her father-in-laws misdeeds and the fatwa was issued by a set of fanatics who obviously have'nt read into their own holy book.

The holy book does not sanction this.
I hope and pray that Imrana's life soon returns to normal and the culprits (yes, including the elders of the village, the person who issued the fatwa and the local police) be brought to justice.
Submitting....
