Feeling a bit bored, of an evening?
Nothing on TV that appeals?
Fear not – ’cause once Sharia Law is operating where you live, there’ll be a whole new world of entertainment! Why not forego the pub and instead gather with your mates to watch a man having his hand chopped off?
That’s how locals spend their spare time in Kismayo, Somalia. The BBC News website relates how recently Sharia Entertainment Inc drew quite a crowd:
” Mohamed Omar Ismail, had been found guilty of stealing goods from another man’s house. That afternoon, hundreds of local people flocked to Freedom Park in order to see the amputation.
“After a long wait, Mr Ismail was brought out in front of the people and an official started to read out the court decision from a piece of paper.
“The Islamic Sharia court of Kismayo district confirms that Mohamed Omar Ismail has been found guilty of stealing,” the official announced.
“Mr Ismail stole 10 pairs of trousers, 10 shirts, eight other items and a bag. The value of all the items is estimated to be $90.”
“The official quoted a chapter from the Quran known as Surah Maida, verse 38, which is about stealing and relevant punishment.
“He said that the verse decreed that punishment for stealing was that the right hand of the thief should be cut off.
“A local journalist who witnessed the events unfold saw a shocked-looking Mr Ismail brought into the park.
“His right hand was held up to the crowds. It was then laid on a table and severed immediately and without ceremony at the wrist.
“The eyewitness told of his horror as the bloody body part was dangled by its index finger in front of the crowd to prove that punishment had been meted out.
“Mr Ismail is now recovering from his injury in Kismayo General Hospital, where he is being guarded by the Islamist militia who punished him.
“But according to an independent source, Mr Ismail insists he did not commit the burglary for which he lost his hand.
“He said he was still appalled at what had happened to him and the terrible pain he had suffered.”
So, next time Muslims in Britain, Holland, Norway, France, Sweden, or Germany, hold a rally demanding that Islamic law be enshrined in your nation’s legal system, remember this sorry tale.
