Need a Little Extra Money?

Do what this Pakistani man did..sell his wife's kidney.

The wife of a farmer from Bahawalpur has registered a case against her husband, accusing him of selling her kidney without her consent to purchase a tractor, police said on Monday.

District Police Officer (DPO) Bahawlapur Arif Nawaz said that police had registered a case against farmer Shakeel Ahmed following the written complaint of his wife, Safia, “in the light of a medical report indicating that (her) husband had unlawfully sold one of her kidneys”.

Safia moved an application to the Noshera Jadeed station house officer (SHO), stating that her husband, whom she married in 2004, had beaten her when she was three-months’ pregnant, causing her to miscarry.

She said that her husband then took her to Bahawal Victoria Hospital, on the pretext of seeking medical treatment. She accused doctors of removing one of her kidneys during a surgical procedure, claiming that they had acted in collusion with her husband and had failed to secure her consent before removing the organ.

Safia said that she only came to know about her ordeal when she later contracted a urinary tract infection and sought medical treatment. She also pointed out that that her husband then confessed what had happened, admitting that he had sold her kidney and used the money from the transaction to buy a tractor.

Noshera Jadeed police said that they had registered a case against Ahmed, adding that investigations into the alleged crime were still continuing.

Surprising? Not in a society that treats women as property. Not in a religion that teaches women are not equal to man.

"Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property for the support of women. So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Lo! Allah is ever High, Exalted, Great." (Surah 4:34)

In Pakistan, a female minister was killed for not covering their face in public.

Woman are blamed for being raped and are often stoned or imprisoned for "their" crime.

This is dreadful as a person should make a serious choice like this on their own. This is an illustration of what is wrong with Sharia.

Yes, islam itself is the problem. There will be no baby to be missed, only bathwater.

BrookE..don't even get me started on the "Islamic Thinkers Society". This group should be classified as a terrorist organization by the Justice Department.
Unfortunately, they seem to be dropping the ball (it seems to happen quite often under George Bush) in this case.
I would like to see this group and its mosque forced out of New York City by ANY MEANS NECESSARY!
I would gladly pay for the gasoline.

doodle..I understand the point you are making and she is the victim in this case but she is part of this culture and belief system. This activity will continue for as long as Islam exists.

How about paying your gambling debts by giving away your kids??

Daughter lost in poker game pleads for help.

It’s a mad, mad world. We’ve all heard stories of people who’ve lost their families/homes through gambling addiction - but not literally loosing them!

From Reuters:

A teenage girl in southern Pakistan, whose late father lost her in a poker game when she was 2 years old, has asked authorities to save her from being handed over to a middle-aged relative.

Rasheeda, 17, said she has filed applications with the police and a local councillor asking them to prevent Lal Haider, 45, from taking her to his home.

Her mother, Nooran said her husband racked up a debt of 10,000 rupees ($151) to Haider playing cards.

“My husband didn’t have money to pay, and instead he told Lal Haider that he could take Rasheeda when she grows up,” she said.

Despite being paid his money last year, she said Haider still insisted the girl should be given to him because of tribal customs.

Apparently the uncle intends for her to wed his son. Authorities have stated “We will ensure the girl does not have to do anything against her will.”
