Bangladeshi Woman Dies After Caning For Adultery

Sufia Begum, 50, has become the latest victim of Sharia justice. The Bangladeshi woman died after being publicly caned for an alleged extramarital affair with her stepson.

Begum was sentenced by an Islamic court in her village and whipped 40 times on Nov. 12. The caning was carried about by a Muslim cleric and a local woman. Police reported that village elders “tied 10 canes together and beat her legs.” She was left swollen and her kidneys were badly damaged. Her family was trying to raise money for medical treatment when she died.

Bangladesh outlawed punishments in the name of religious edicts and two people have been arrested.

    Bubbha is Laughing:

    don’t you want to cane all those “rich” capitalists? I bet you would love Sharia law, cant charge interest or very little.

    Dam another totalitarian example of socialism. Does it never end?”


    The non sequitur, it burnssssssss.

    At least have the courtesy to nod toward the article kicking off the thread before you depart into a wholly unrelated subject by way of starting or continuing some pissing contest. Have a little respect for the host. Scheeeeeesh.

  2. And what part of unstable weather doesn’t describe summertime snow fall in Australia?

    That is the very definition of unstable.

    And that’s the point you keep missing: aggregate global warming produces unstable weather – not just warmer weather – and will do so until the oscillations of the system grow so wild as to pass a bifurcation point where climate changes permanently to reflect a new higher heat “norm”. A “norm” which will indeed preclude snowfall in many areas – a significant and irreversible change in average climate brought on by adding energy to the system in the form of heat retained by carbon.

    So take this veil from off my eyes
    My burning sun will some day rise
    And what am I gunna be doin for a while
    said I’m gunna play with myself
    Show them now we’ve come off the shelf

  4. Saying it doesn’t make it so, maybe in your world not mine.

    P.S. Heavy snowfall in Australia yesterday and today.

    If you think I was quoting Mussolini for that reason you are just plain stupid. Are you really that dumb?


    … and your point is …? Hey man, turn-about is fair play.

    Ok … satchel snatching is only fun for awhile … gotta move on to other things … so many conservatives, so little time

  6. bdaman,

    Actually I stayed up in particular to watch the eclipse. It wasn’t the first one I’ve seen, but it was a good one. I had excellent viewing conditions.

    As to being kind? Neither. A climate change denier who doesn’t understand the carbon cycle and how atmospheric chemistry affects reflectivity and how heat impacts complex systems is considerably less offensive to my political sensibilities than a fascist liar.

    This is primarily a law/politics blog. If it were a science blog, I’d still be all over your case.

    Because you’re wrong.

    “Chan: And the culture of the Oklahoma City bombers was?”

    I believe he was some sort of neo-fascist/socialist/white supremacist.

    and your point is? That neo-fascist/socialist/white supremacists are bad? I agree that is a pretty bad culture.


    “and your point is? That neo-fascist/socialist/white supremacists are bad? I agree that is a pretty bad culture.” … nice try but no cigar

    You altogether missed SwM’s point but the rest of us didn’t.

    She was addressing culture … you were addressing motivation

  8. Buddha I’m just messin with ya man.

    Your killing me, you are being to kind as of late.

    New leaf or new meds?

    P.S. It’s the sun. And if you didn’t stay up to see the interaction with the moon last night you missed a truly spectacular show.

  9. What’s the matter, Chan?

    Facts got your tongue?

    You overplayed your cards by once again quoting something you didn’t properly understand.

    Self-rationalization can make one do that.

  10. bdaman,

    What part of “We the People” is inherently democratic don’t you understand in your efforts at partisan hackery? And that “republican” in that usage is synonymous with democratic, i.e. power rests with the people?

    That would be all of it.

  11. Come on.

    Tell us again how business shouldn’t be regulated to prevent abuses of individual rights.

    Prove to us some more who is truly the fascist.

  12. and one

    Pardon the sloppy typing.

    At least my thinking isn’t sloppy. Something you can’t say, Chan.

  13. No. The dumb on here is you. As demonstrated time and again by myself and Tony C.

    You’re a fascist tool to dumb to realize your own nature.

    “An unexamined life is not worth living.” – Socrates

  14. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,[72] that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

    When your “happiness” takes life and liberty from others – in the name of profit or whatever – then it is ripe for governmental restriction. Just like a murderer has no right to take the life and liberty of a victim without punishment, fascists have no right to take profits at the expense of the life and liberty of others.

  15. If you think I was quoting Mussolini for that reason you are just plain stupid. Are you really that dumb?

  16. We do have a republic. A democratic representative republic, you simpleton.

    Didn’t the republicans win the last election.

    That should read, A republican representative republic 🙂
