Burkha for Babies: Fatwa by Saudi Cleric

Close on the heels of one cleric raping his 5 year old daughter and then killing her by breaking her skull, back injuring and burning her, comes the news of another cleric in Saudi Arabia who has the right cure for such incidents.   Babies to wear Burkha.

What’s next?  Putting Burkhas on female camels?

Baby-550x404Sheikh Abdullah Daoud came out with his Fatwa in an interview on the Islamic al-Majd TV

According to Daoud, dressing infants and children in the traditional Muslim veils would reduce the sexual molestation of minors, though the cleric did not cite any evidence for his view.

Now other clerics are scrambling to “limit the damage”, if you will and coming up with the same age old argument – it is denigrating to Islam.

Sheikh Mohammad al-Jzlana, a former judge at the Saudi Board of Grievances, told al-Majd TV that the fatwa was “denigrating to Islam and Shariah and made Islam look bad.”

Oh well.

9 Truths on Fate and Destiny that Lord Ram’s Guru Taught Him

Some interesting nuggets from Vasishtha's Yoga:- IN this world whatever is gained.. is gained only by self effort; where failure is encountered its is seen there has been slackness in the effort. This is obvious; but what is called fate is fictitious and not seen.- Self - effort is of two categories: that of the past births and that of this birth. The latter effectively counteracts the former. Fate is none other than self-effort of a past incarnation. There is constant conflict between these two in this incarnation; and that which is more powerful triumphs.- There is no power greater than right action in the present. Hence, one should take recourse to self -effort, grinding one's teeth, and one should overcome evil by good and fate by present effort.
