Even better:

" 'If you know that your girl is good and she practises her faith, she's not hopping around in what we consider lewd behaviour, then for heaven's sakes you know, let the girl have a chance,' Ahsan said."

I've seen a number of iman comments who have said similar things - which is nothing more than the "if she wasn't dressed provocatively she wouldn't have been raped" argument we left behind 20+ years ago.

So "let the girl have a chance" = "good", "practices her faith" and "no lewd behaviour"; the converse gives us what, 'do not let the girl have a chance' = 'no hijab"? Not an Islam thing but a teenager thing? What kind of empty thought is that?

How about - fathers don't kill their children for the way they dress or act? How about - teens are supposed to form their own identity, it is a part of growing up?

What acceptable response is there except to say, unconditionally, 'Islam condemns without pause the murder of children'? Full Stop. As soon as you start trying to explain or contextualize a killing, you are offering a rationale for murder.

When I read these highly conditional statements from leaders in the Islam movement, it makes Mark Steyn sound a lot more sane.

As for the law students - whatever. There has already been an attempt to bring Sharia law into the Ontario mediation system.

I think many people do not understand why a complaint was filed against Macleans Magazine. The following YouTube link provides an interview from Khurrum Awan *himself* on the Mike Duffy Live Show explaining the facts.
