Afghan Muslims stop ban on violence against women
15 minutes into the debate by Afghan politicians on whether or not to ban violence against women and ‘angry scenes’ stopped the proceedings.
Back in 2009 Afghan MP’s opposed a law being passed to ban violence against women, child marriages and forced marriages however the bill was passed by President Karzai using his ‘Presidential decree’.
The BBC quotes:
During the debate, mullahs and other traditionalist MPs accused President Karzai of acting against Islamic Sharia law by signing the decree in the first place, the BBC’s David Loyn reports from Kabul.
In particular, they demanded a change to the law so that men cannot be prosecuted for rape within marriage, our correspondent said.
Islam/Sharia law/religion = a pile of shit
