This is what upsets me about certain aspects of the Muslim faith.

I have read many articles like this from the Telegraph.

The Headline reads;

Rape victim receives 101 lashes for becoming pregnant

A 16-year-old girl who was raped in Bangladesh has been given 101 lashes for conceiving during the assault.

An extract from the article

The girl's father was also fined and warned the family would be branded outcasts from their village if he did not pay.

For crying out loud she was raped, she was the victim.

Another extract;

Her rape emerged after her pregnancy test and Muslim elders in the village issued a fatwa insisting that the girl be kept in isolation until her family agreed to corporal punishment.

If you thought that was bad enough, what do you think the rapist got?

Here is an extract from the article answering that question;

Her rapist was pardoned by the elders.

I am not against Islam as a faith.

What i am against is the oppression of women and girls of the Muslim faith. This girl is the innocent party, but she is treated like she is guilty of being raped.

I have read many stories like this and it saddens me and makes me so angry that in the 21st century women, of the Muslim faith, are treated like they are nothing, like they are just things to be abused by Muslim men.

My wife thinks we should take some of these Muslim men, who treat women so badly, and give them a sex change operation and then send them back and see how they like to be on the receiving end of the abuse they give out.

I'm sure the victim from the above article would like to see that happen to her rapist.

I don't know what we can do to change things to help Muslim women, but we can't turn a blind eye to the treatment of women in the Muslim faith.

Someone told me once about how we should put more investment into hydrogen gas to fuel our cars.

My idea is that all the western countries should get together and invest in developing hydrogen gas for fuel, so we won't be so dependent on the middle east for our oil.

Then we have a big bargaining chip to get them to change their ways on how they treat women.

Something has to be done, it is the moral thing to do.
