Two Muslim girls killed by their 'mothers' for marrying Hindu idolaters

These two mothers unfortunately do not understand that Islam allows intereligious marriages, at least according to Muslim moderates like Mr Sultan Shahin or Mr Ali Engineer, who show it as evidence for Islam being pluralist.

Just like the myth of Islam being pluralist and inclusive, their assertions on Islam allowing intereligious marriages is a blatant lie - to be more honest it is half truth -, of which those reformers were never ashamed of; because they knew in their hearts that Allah, Islamic god, perfectly allows telling lies to advance the ultimate goal of Islam i.e. world being ruled under Sharia law.

I needed to be more accurate on position of Islam on inter religious marriages - I mentioned this many times in this blog itself and to many non-Muslims in various discussions at other places - to remove any doubts of readers of this piece.

Let us question whether a religion which prescribes death penalty to those leaving Islam to other religion allows intereligious marriages?

Sure, it does. In its own way!

What ever be the extent to which a Muslim practices his faith, every Muslim believes Koran is a word from Allah revealed to Prophet Mohammad through Anger Gabriel. And Koran says these on inter religious marriages:
1. Muslim men can marry women from people of book i.e. Christians and Jews and of course Muslim women.
2. Muslim women can not marry men from other religions; it is forbidden (haram).

There is a glitch here regarding Islam allowing Muslim men marrying Hindu women or Sikh women. Considering that some Islamic schools (actually, only one school) have extended the option of paying Jizya to Hindus, Buddhists and Sikhs - in the beginning, only Christians and Jews have this option of paying Jizya and for all others Islam gives only choice between death and converting to Islam - this provision of Muslim men marrying women of People of Book i.e. Christians and Jews can be extended to women from Hinduism too on parallel logic. Other than this line of philosophy, there is nothing in Koran or traditions of Prophet Mohammad, that permits Muslim men marrying Hindu women.

With regard to Muslim women, we can say nothing like it because there is not a single verse in Koran like 5:005 - which permits Muslim men to marry women from Christianity and Judaism -  permitting Muslim women marrying other than Muslim men.

Following two are the verses that guide social relations between Muslims and non-Muslims:
2:221 (YUSUFALI): Do not marry unbelieving women (idolaters), until they believe: A slave woman who believes is better than an unbelieving woman, even though she allures you. Nor marry (your girls) to unbelievers until they believe: A man slave who believes is better than an unbeliever, even though he allures you.......... 
5:005 (YUSUF ALI): ......(Lawful unto you in marriage) are (not only) chaste women who are believers, but chaste women among the People of the Book, [Christians and Jews] revealed before your time,- when ye give them their due dowers, and desire chastity, not lewdness, nor secret intrigues if any one rejects faith, fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good). 
When Koran speaks so straight forward on this, it leaves no room for misinterpretation. Sharia (Islamic law) law advocates death penalty to non-Muslim men who try to marry Muslim women or try to develop any kind of relation with Muslim women (read clause 1 in the chapter @o11.10 from here).

But, what happens when Muslim women do marry non-Muslim men; Islam or Koran or Sharia law says such disobedient women be killed and this usually is discussed under the topic of honor killings in Islam; Sharia law does not punish parents who kill their children under tag of honor [here (this hyper-link is excellent) and here (regarding the incident of Harry Potter actress)) (or read clause 4 in the chapter @o1.2 from here]

Now, one can see the kind of inter religious marriages Islam allows; one can also see how conveniently some Islamic apologists lie or present half truths. 

One does not need to be super intelligent to realize that under this kind of setting, where Muslim men can marry non-Muslim women but Muslim women can not marry non-Muslim men, non-Muslims and their culture (or civilization) disappears in the long run. 

Islam is a closed system and totalitarian (fascist actually); every rule and every law in Islam is patterned to advance Islam and towards realizing Islamic goal of whole world under Sharia.

Newlyweds Zahida, 19, and Husna, 26, were strangled when they returned home after marrying men of their own choosing, police officer Anil Kumar Kusan said.

Marriages between Hindus and Muslims are rare in India and are frowned upon by both communities, although there are more instances of inter-religious marriages among the educated urban population.
Across India, many marriages are still arranged by families.

But with the booming economy and more women entering the workforce, such traditions are slowly giving way to love matches.

Centuries-old caste and community barriers still come into play, however, and there has been a spurt in "honour killings" in recent years across northern India.

Zahida and Husna were neighbours in Baghpat, a town in Uttar Pradesh state, when they fell in love with two construction workers.

They eloped and got married last week before returning home to make peace with their families, Kusan said.

The girls belonged to Muslim families and their mothers, both widows, were furious, Kusan said.

Initial investigations showed the mothers helped each other to strangle the girls.

The mothers were unrepentant, saying the girls had brought shame and dishonour to their families, police said.

Earlier this week, India's Supreme Court recommended the death penalty for perpetrators of honour killings, calling the practice barbaric and feudal.........

Or One can read from Indian Express (here)
Zahida and Husna sought police protection but SDM sent them home [Why?].......Two Muslim women in an Uttar Pradesh town, 40 km east of Delhi, allegedly killed their daughters because they had eloped and married migrant Bihari Hindu labourers, police said. The victims had sought police protection after they returned to their homes in Baghpat earlier this week, but the subdivisional magistrate sent them home to reconcile with their mothers.

“We killed them because they had brought shame to our community. How could they elope with Hindus? They deserved to die. We have no remorse,” Khatun and Subrato said Friday.

Imagine the uproar and outrage in the media and the circles of our seculars and liberals - who are also opinion makers - if Hindu women have been killed with statements like Hindu extremism, Hindu imperialism and Hindu bigotry or Hindu communalism! Remember, how the media made Priyanka of Bhopal a celebrity because she married a Muslim guy? Now the question is, are courts going to let those mothers go free because according to Sharia law, the marriage is not only illegal but mothers have right to kill their daughters? What will ulema say? Are they going to call these two mothers as examples for other Muslim women and mothers? Imagine the accusations against police department and Judge for turning over those two Hindu girls to their parents? It would be one hell of an opportunity for every idiot to show their credentials as liberal and secular in this cursed land, India.
