Video: Separation of Mosque-Church and State, Ex Leader of Jamaat Islami will Prove its Need

Separation of Mosque and State

Separation of Mosque and State, for the Muslim Times’ collection, please click here

If anyone was not conviced completely about the paramount need for Separation of Mosque-Church and State, this video clip should do the trick for him or her.  In this interview Munawar Hasan the leader of the largest religio-political party in Pakistan is perfectly comfortable in denying rape victims any forensic evidence and keeping them in jail, if they are unable to produce four eye witnesses.

In this interview, one of the most learned scholars and proponent of Sharia says that if a woman is raped and does not have four male witnesses, regardless of other circumstances, she should better be quiet.

The learned scholar does not suggest how the victim should negotiate with the potential witnesses before the legal hearing in presence of strict Purdah requirements, to make sure that they are not going to deviate from their testimony.

Such lack of insight and empathy should send shivers down the spine of every sensitive human being!

All the moderate Muslims may be better off under any Western law rather than such medieval understanding of Sharia Law.

My apologies to the English readers, for the video clip is in Urdu.  You will need to find an Urdu translator.

Munawar Hasan is also completely unable to conceptualize that he may not have the correct interpretation of the Holy Quran.

The non-Muslims should, however, recognize that Islam and Muslims are not monolithic and there are moderate and reasonable voices in Islam as well.

  1. And I also support the Saudi women right to drive. BBC wrote:

    The video shows a young woman getting into her car for a spin around town with a friend. Giggling away, they sound excited yet nervous. And all the while, they comment on the reactions of passers-by.
    So far, the story sounds uneventful. After all, millions of women across the world drive every day without a second thought.
    Only the difference is, this video was shot by 28-year old Solafa from Saudi Arabia, the only country in the world that bans women from driving.
