I could blog about Hafiz Saeed and nothing else, he provides so much material. He's the founder of the Pakistanis terrorist group Lashkar-e-Toiba (linked to Daniel Pearl's murderer, Omar Sheikh, among many other atrocities) and he's the brother of two Massachusetts imam, and the brother-in-law of a third. From the blog India-Alert, a recent Dawah radio broadcast from Hafiz Saeed, including his opinion about International Women's Day:
"Everybody celebrated the so-called women day on Mar 8 in Pakistan. I want to tell my mothers, sisters and daughters that there is no substance in Mar 8 as women day. It is just an eyewash. The west is trying to pretend that it is the biggest champion of women rights. I tell you my mothers, sisters and daughters that Islam is the only religion that has given women all the rights centuries ago when the west was in the dark age. The west projects a wrong perception of women rights. The west thinks that ‘absolute freedom’ is the women freedom. No it is not the case. Islam gives women more freedom and respect. By saying that women should stay in the boundary walls of home and it is the duty of men to take care of them, Islam gives women respect and comfort. The west wants women to come out of the house and work like animals in offices, fields, etc. Working like men is not comfort and respect for women. The real respect is, women should take care of homes and children and men will earn for them and take care of their everything. Thus, Islam is protecting women from the evil eyes of men. Once women are out from their house’s boundary-wall, the evil eyes of men start chasing them. Men are snakes. They take women as prey. Why there is so much obscenity, nudity, abortion, procreation of illegitimate children in the west? Only because, the west has given women full freedom – the freedom which is projected as ‘women freedom’. "
"My mother, sisters and daughters, please remember my advice. West’s freedom is only an open invitation to sins. A woman will lose her respect, dignity, innocence and virginity if she will follow the course of western freedom. There is not a single chaste woman in the west. Tony Blair, George Bush and their allies – all of them are bastard children. They don’t know who is their real mother and father. They want us to become like them. They want us to be a product of illegitimate relations so that we also don’t know who is our mother and who is our father. They want our women to sleep with other men also. The west encourages sexual relations beyond marriage. A man from west will not mind if his wife, sister or daughter sleeps with any other man. This is the attitude of animals. So, westerners are animals. In some cases, far worst than animals because animals also follows some discipline. But westerners would have sex with their sisters, mothers and daughters which shows the decadence level of their mind."
It would be almost comical, but it's not. I bet those literally thousands of women burned and killed every year in honor killings, those thousands of young women forced to be second and third wives to old goats - I bet they don't find life so fantastic in their "protected house's boundary."
As the India Alert blogger writes:
"I am not a Pak basher. I believe, like many others, that Pakistan has been hostage to the fratricidal combination of the military and mullahs."
Like Hafiz Saeed.
