My Imam Father Came After Me With an Axe
The Times (London) ^ | March 15, 2009 | Dominic Lawson

Hannah Shah had been raped by her father and faced a forced marriage. She fled, became a Christian and now fears for her life

We are all too familiar with the persecution of Christians in countries such as Pakistan and Afghanistan. Yet sitting in front of me is a British woman whose life has been threatened in this country solely because she is a Christian. Indeed, so real is the threat that the book she has written about her experiences has had to appear under an assumed name.

The book is called The Imam’s Daughter because “Hannah Shah” is just that: the daughter of an imam in one of the tight-knit Deobandi Muslim Pakistani communities in the north of England. Her father emigrated to this country from rural Pakistan some time in the 1960s and is, apparently, a highly respected local figure.

He is also an incestuous child abuser, repeatedly raping his daughter from the age of five until she was 15, ostensibly as part of her punishment for being “disobedient”. At the age of 16 she fled her family to avoid the forced marriage they had planned for her in Pakistan. A much, much greater affront to “honour” in her family’s eyes,

SNIP

Hannah’s description in the book of the moment when her “community” discovered the “safe” home where she had fled after becoming an apostate is terrifying. A mob with her father at its head pounded and hammered at the door as she cowered upstairs hoping she could not be seen or heard. She heard her father shout through the letter box: “Filthy traitor! Betrayer of your faith! Cursed traitor! We’re going to rip your throat out! We’ll burn you alive

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy.

The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.

— Winston Churchill

And how long is the “West” going to put up with the despicable, evil ways of the false and oppressive religion of Islam?

Some (so-called) males need to be neutered as soon as they’re hatched.
I think their nuts get in the way of sanity.

Britain is so “sensitive” to Islam, that it does nothing to protect women. It infuriates me.

My tag line was aimed at liberals in OUR society and public education for their policies of exposing children to inappropiate things and sexual predators.

I’m beginning to see it is more properly applied abroad and to (once) Great Britain in particular.

Where is a Winston Churchill when you need one?

repeatedly raping his daughter from the age of five until she was 15, ostensibly as part of her punishment for being “disobedient”.

I don't think there are any animals who behave this way in the Animal Kingdom. At least not on Mutual of Omaha.

While I may have thought them sub-human at times, this demonstrates that they are in fact, beneath animals. We should dedicate a holiday season to commemorate people like this and call it: varmint season.
