Satanic Tweets: Sharia Court Bans Discussion of Amputation Punishment on Twitter and Facebook

An Islamic court in Nigeria has banned any debates on the use of amputations as punishment on Twitter, Facebook, or blogs to protect Islamic traditions from being mocked or disrespected.

The Sharia Court in Kaduna blocked the Civil Rights Congress of Nigeria from holding a forum on the anniversary of the introduction of amputations as punishment. The first such case was that of Malam Buba Bello Jangebe in 2000. He had stolen a cow.

The Sharia court ruled:”An order is hereby given restraining the respondents either by themselves or their agents from opening a chat forum on Facebook, Twitter, or any blog for the purpose of the debate on the amputation of Malam Buba Bello Jangebe.”

    As Westerner who has read some Sharia law as part of my comparative law studies, might I suggest that barbarism under the guise of legalism deserves nothing but mockery and disrespect.

    And I’ve said this before, but it bears repeating: If your “god” can’t take a joke? Then he’s not much of a god now is he?
