Islamic Chauvinism or Mental Illness

The story of the 15 year old girl in the Maldives sentences to 100 lashes for pre-marital sex (read rape) has become a big issue. Rightfully so and I back any decision to make sure that the Maldives does not get any of my money, just for the same reason that I will not work in most Arabic countries.

But the question I want to ask today is a simple one. How can any man, or even more so father allow their daughter to be treated in this way. It amounts to mental illness not the normal chauvinism that is rife in islam. I have blogged about the chauvinism rife in islam before.

What defines a mental illness? It is something that is not normal behaviour.

So how could you not defend your daughter while she was getting raped by her uncle? How could you not defend your daughter in court as she was getting prosecuted? Is this normal behaviour?


We live in a civilised world, where mental illness can be cured.Its time to call islam what it is.... a mental illness.

This just in male mice have more integrity than the father of the 15 year old girl. They will show paternal behavior similar to maternal behavior towards their offspring.
