Video Of Iraqi Girl's Stoning Shown On Internet

ARBIL, Iraq (AFP) - Cellphone videos have appeared on the Internet showing an Iraqi mob stoning and kicking to death a 17-year-old girl after she offended her minority community by eloping with a Muslim man.

 

Doaa Khalil Aswad was a member of northern Iraq's Yazidi religious sect but, according to local officials, she was murdered on April 7 by her brothers and uncles after she allegedly converted to Islam.

 

In the video -- on the Kurdish website Jebar.Info and rapidly spreading on the Internet -- Aswad is shown lying in the road as men kick her and throw a large lump of rock or concrete at her head.

 

Her face is drenched in blood but uniformed and armed officers of the Iraqi police stand by and do nothing to prevent the attack.

 

The slim, dark-haired girl is wearing a red tracksuit top and black underwear during the beating

At one point she struggles to sit up and cover herself, but a man kicks her in the face knocking her violently back to the ground.

 

The assault continues for several minutes and she does not appear to cry out nor resist her attackers.

 

Members of a large crowd can be seen filming the murder on their cellphones, some of them shouting or kicking out at the cowering victim.

 

Nobody Tries To Help Her.

 

"They brutally killed a young Yazidi girl in pursuit of out-of-date tribal rites," said Tahsin Saeed Ali, Emir of the Yazidis in Iraq and the world and head of the Supreme Yazidi Spiritual Council, in a statement.

 

Ali condemned the murder and called on Muslims not to retaliate. When news of Aswad's murder surfaced last month, it triggered an apparent revenge attack.

 

On April 23, gunmen stopped a bus carrying workers to her community, the village of Beshika 10 kilometres (six miles) outside Mosul, dragged out 23 Yazidis and shot them dead.

 

While it is a Kurdish speaking area, Beshika lies outside northern Iraq's Kurdish autonomous region, whose administration has urged the national government in Baghdad to carry out an investigation into the murder.

 

Last week the United Nations quarterly report on human rights in Iraq expressed serious concern over a rapid rise in so-called "honour killings" of women deemed to have betrayed their families in Kurdish Iraq.

 

"The killing of Doaa is a great tragedy for her family and the Kurdish community. It is a crime and religiously, socially and ideologically unacceptable," a statement from the Kurdish authority said

 

"While we condemn this crime, we demand that it be not used in arousing sedition among the components of the Kurdish people.

 

Yazidis -- who number some 500,000, mainly in northern Iraq -- speak a dialect of Kurdish but follow a pre-Islamic religion and have their own cultural traditions.

 

They believe in God the creator and respect the Biblical and Koranic prophets, especially Abraham, but their main focus of worship is Malak Taus, the chief of the archangels, often represented by a pea####.

 

Followers of other religions know this angel as Lucifer or Satan, leading to popular prejudice that the secretive Yazidis are devil-worshippers.

 

Nevertheless, the community has survived for centuries alongside its Muslim and Christian neighbours.

 

Now, however, with sectarian war gripping much of Iraq, Sunni Muslim extremists have begun to threaten them.

Hypocrisy at its best. When someone is stoned to death for converting to Islam they are a martyr. When someone is stoned to death for converting out of Islam they got what they deserved.

Its quite simple really; I don't see alot of Muslims here making a big deal of some of the existing videos of people getting stoned to death for apostacy, adultery in Muslim countries. I guess it's okay when Muslim's do it. It's "barbaric" when someone else does it to Muslims.

Do you know what religion these Kurdish people follow? Maybe you don't, it's quite hilarious.

 

Also, don't compare a believer to a non-believer.

 

Thirdly, what do you think about the laws in Islam concerning apostacy?

I don't and frankly don't care. The act is still the same regardless of who is doing it.

 

Also, don't compare a believer to a non-believer.

 

I'm comparing a human being to a human being. It has nothing to do with them being a believer or not.

 

Thirdly, what do you think about the laws in Islam concerning apostacy?

 

Barbaric, primitive, unnacceptable in any civilized society.

No point discussing this with you then. I don't know why you have written Islam as your religion.

Alright, going into this might get ugly so I'll just avoid it. But I do have an honest question for you and any other Muslims who have responded to this article. I really hope that you would answer it;

 

What exactly is it about the video that disturbs you? Is it the means to which this girl was killed? Was it the screaming mob bashing her head in with rocks, or was it the reason for which she was killed that upset you? Did the execution inherently make you feel any sympathy for her or was it simply the fact that she was Muslim?

I will answer your question, but i also have one for you. Are you Muslim?

What upset me in regards to the video was the reason they killed her. They didn't have to stone her to death, but they did anyways because it was to mock Islam. I understand that you think it's a double standard that we're angry because they stoned this girl who had converted to Islam, when in shariah law we stone an apostate. But i think it's different, and if you understand the reasons behind stoning in shariah law, then maybe, just maybe you would understand. instead of thinking it's hypocritical, when you a "Muslim"doesn't even try an understand, but rather slam the act.

So seeing a 17 year old girl getting kicked in the head and pelted with rocks till death had absolutely no effect on you? Wow, when's the last time you saw a psychiatrist?

For me it made me sick watching that video because it shows you how cruel humans can be, this aint got nothing to do with Islam in a way as well as it shows the mentality of people in the middle east still acting like in the olden age...i thought this world was civilised...no in the end this world is more corrupted than you can really think of....this is becoming a prison for us muslims indeed.

 

 

She was only 17 and a girl on top of that! It makes me cry inside...a helpless girl being beaten her life out...:sl: Shocking!

Honestly, I don't know anymore. I'd be lying if I said the sheer level of ignorance I have seen among other Muslims, Muslim countires and yes, even members of this forum has definately "strained" it.

 

What upset me in regards to the video was the reason they killed her. They didn't have to stone her to death, but they did anyways because it was to mock Islam. I understand that you think it's a double standard that we're angry because they stoned this girl who had converted to Islam, when in shariah law we stone an apostate.

 

The reason you think it's "different" is because you have an unwavering belief that you yourself hold the key to objective truth (thats not a compliment by the way) It's "different" because to you, an apostate is an apostate and a Muslim is a Muslim. One deserves to be tortured to death and one doesn't. Thats a dangerous way of looking at the world because anything can then be justified. IMO, its not different, it's exactly the same. A human being is a human being and each deserves to have their life treated with respect rather than a circus for sociopaths to defile and torment.

 

But i think it's different, and if you understand the reasons behind stoning in shariah law, then maybe, just maybe you would understand. instead of thinking it's hypocritical, when you a "Muslim"doesn't even try an understand, but rather slam the act.

 

No, I understand the reasons behind apostate laws very well. Its essentially this; "Apostates should be killed because Muhammed said they should be killed, case closed." The justification for it comes afterwards. I understand it and in understanding it find it to be barbaric. Quite simple.

You are the ignorant one. I don't care if you can't stomach the truth. Us Muslims are obedient towards Allah, we don't care for your opinion.

 

The punishment for apostating from Islam is death.

 

That girl was MURDERED for leaving a religion which is a load of rubbish. I think this is possibly the religion:

So yes I feel sympathy for her and how she died.

 

However if she was a Muslim and she left Islam to become one of them I would feel no sympathy.

Oh, I see. Prophet Muhammad is barbaric, primitive and unacceptable in any civilized society. Nice to know where you stand.

so muslims different view points of various matters that you have happen to disagree upon have swayed you from the religion? that's kinda lame.

 

It's "different" because to you, an apostate is an apostate and a Muslim is a Muslim. One deserves to be tortured to death and one doesn't.
Maybe that person shouldn't have submitted to the truth in the first place and then left it. By leaving they open the door to anyone else who may want to. This religion is not a joke. You don't submit to god and then decide not to anymore, that's foolish.

 

Thats a dangerous way of looking at the world because anything can then be justified.
if i witnessed an act of injustice i would not be quick to condone it, Islam is about fairness and justice, even if they happen not to be Muslim.

 

I understand it and in understanding it find it to be barbaric.
no you don't understand Islamic law as you claim to.
