Pakistan: Is This Sharia Law?

After watching a video of a woman being publicly lashed in the northern areas of Pakistan, Deadpan Thoughts questions: “this is what we have reduced Islam to, this is what the government has handed people’s lives to?”

  • Hello,

    I’m doing research on terrorism, and I’ve put together a pre-survey questionnaire that I’m circulating in order to get feedback on what a non-biased (non-western, white, male) survey might look like. The final survey will go out later this year.

    The survey can be accessed at johnmaszka.com/SURVEY.html

    Would you post it, and possibly circulate it? I’m very interested in incorporating the views of women, non-whites, and people living outside of America and Western Europe.

    I’d appreciate it.

    Thanks!
    Take care,

    John Maszka

    Shame, it’s a great shame for all the living sensible human being.

    If any law lead some(barbaric!) people to such a barbaric act, that should not exist.

    This civilized should not experience this sort of atrocity.

    I hope Pakistan should be a bit civilized by rejecting this cruel, barbaric shariah law.

    Shariah law is nothing but a middle-age barbaric legacy.This is not relevant in the era.
