Attention Plato!

Reader comment on item: Resisting Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Mansoor: Once Allah allows rape it is no more rape!

Attention Plato,


Punishment for sexual crimes was sometimes meted to innocent people, or even to the victim:

When a man has sex with a slave girl (yes, slavery is OK), he isn't to be heavily punished, but the girl is (Leviticus 19:20).

The penalty for sex with an animal is to be death not only for the man or woman, but for the poor beast as well (Leviticus 20:15,16).

A woman who doesn't scream when she gets raped is to be stoned. (Deuteronomy 22:24).

Bastard children are to be punished, and their descendants, too. (Deuteronomy 23:2, Isaiah 14:21).

Why Quran is blamed...when the divine revelation (unauthorized) which you follow has something worse...which cannot be accepted by a sane mind...

Mr. Plato...The verses of Quran you mentioned are soft...and have mentioned forgiveness to those women who are suffered due to slavery..,.

You mentioned in special the following verse...

Read Koran 4:24 - 004.024 YUSUFALI: Also (prohibited are) women already married, except those whom your right hands possess: Thus hath Allah ordained (Prohibitions) against you: Except for these, all others are lawful, provided ye seek (them in marriage) with gifts from your property,- desiring chastity, not lust, seeing that ye derive benefit from them, give them their dowers (at least) as prescribed; but if, after a dower is prescribed, agree Mutually (to vary it), there is no blame on you, and Allah is All-knowing, All-wise.

I am proud on Quran that you mentioned the above verse...In this verse it is not allowed to have sex with your slave until you marry her. You cannot use her for prostitution business....and if someone commits such act the suffering women is free from blame .(according to authentic tafseeer {see Dr Israr Ahmed's talk on Youtube on this issue})

Once again your missile has been converted into a firecracker..

Please see the above link...and get back...with a sincere reply... I am waiting Plato!
