Women have no human rights under Sharia law in Pakistan.
16-year-old-girl killed after gang rape in Lahore.
It is heartbreaking to see her crying mother and grandmother go out to protest in demand for justice.
According to sharia laws in Pakistan:
– There is no freedom of religion or freedom of speech.
– There is no equality between people (the non-Muslim is not equal to the Muslim).
– There are no equal rights for men and women.
– There is no democracy or a separation between religion and state politics.
Sharia is incompatible with Western values.
The Western world must close its borders, deport illegal immigrants, and ban the Sharia laws.
An old man was eating in a truck stop when three bikers walked in.
The first walked up to the old man, pushed his cigarette into the old man’s pie and then took a seat at the counter.
The second walked up to the old man, spit into the old man’s milk and then he took a seat at the counter.
The third walked up to the old man, turned over the old man’s plate, and then he took a seat at the counter.
Onlookers were completely shocked at the men’s behavior, but the old man didn’t seem to be fazed in the slightest.
Without a word of protest, he quietly left the diner.
Shortly thereafter, one of the bikers said to the waitress, “Humph, not much of a man, was he?”
The waitress replied, “Not much of a truck driver either. He just backed his truck over three motorcycles.”
50 Years On: Rivers of Blood
Archive on 4
In April 1968, Enoch Powell made one of the most incendiary speeches in modern British politics. Ian McDiarmid reads the Rivers of Blood speech in its entirety – the first time it has been broadcast complete on British radio.
Taking the speech section by section, he BBC’s Media Editor Amol Rajan and a range of contributors reflect on the enduring influence and significance of the speech, which was delivered to local Conservative Party members in Birmingham just a few days ahead of the crucial second reading of the 1968 Race Relations Bill.
Professor David Dabydeen of the University of Warwick talks about Powell’s failure to realise that the racial unrest in America, which he feared might spread to Britain, was around basic civil rights such as the right to vote, and the right to sit on a bus.
David Lammy MP talks about the fear that the speech created amongst his family at the time, becoming part of the wallpaper of his childhood.
The text of the speech included observations on immigrants taken from Enoch Powell’s Wolverhampton constituents, and ended with a reference to a moment in Virgil’s Aeneid when the prophetess Sibyll predicts civil war in Italy with “the River Tiber foaming with much blood”.
Only a short section of Powell’s speech was actually recorded on the night but, for this programme, the full text is recreated by the actor Ian McDiarmid, who has played Enoch Powell on stage recently in the play What Shadows.
