    Girls & Gold save four from gallows....

    Why these kind of things happen in pakistan...


    Girls & gold save four from gallows

    By Our Correspondent

    MIANWALI, July 23: Four murder convicts managed to save themselves from the gallows after agreeing to pay Rs8 million and eight girls of their family as "compensation" to the aggrieved party.

    The deal was struck at Abbakhel, 12 kilometres from here, on Tuesday in a mammoth gathering of religious scholars, notables of the district, politicians, and the public.

    Sardar Khan, Muhammad Akram Khan, Muhammad Ashraf Khan and Asmatullah Khan were awarded death sentence in a double-murder by the district and sessions judge, Mianwali, in 1988.

    After the rejection of their appeals by the superior courts and the president, the convicts and their relatives sought the help of influential people. They approached the Nawab of Kalabagh who yielded considerable influence on the aggrieved camp. The latter demanded Rs12 million in compensation and 20 young girls as per the local tradition called Vani.

    But, with the efforts of Malik Asad Khan of Kalabagh, Obaidullah Khan Shadikhel, former MNA, Malik Taj Muhammad Kund, former MPA, Amirabdullah Khan Punnkhel, Mazhar Qayyum of Piplan, Qazi Zafar Hussain, and Sajada Nasheen of Chakrala, the aggrieved party brought down its demand to Rs8 million and eight unmarried young girls.
    One of the girls, who is 18, will be married to an 80-year- old man.

    What is the court going to do about it or is this part of our judicial system to buy your way out.

      This is DIYAT - sharia based on quran & sunnah:

      Holy QURAN[5:45]
      We ordained therein for them: "Life for life, eye for eye, nose or nose, ear for ear, tooth for tooth, and WOUNDS equal for equal."

      But if any one remits the retaliation by way of charity, it is an act of atonement for himself. And if any fail to judge by (the light of) what God hath revealed, they are (No better than) wrong-doers.

      Holy QURAN [2:178]
      O ye who believe! Retaliation is prescribed for you in the matter of the murdered; the freeman for the freeman, and the slave for the slave, and the female for the female. And for him who is forgiven somewhat by his (injured) brother, prosecution according to usage and payment unto him in kindness. This is an alleviation and a mercy from your Lord. He who transgresseth after this will have a painful doom.

      Here is a question:
      Why do you think that the panchayat rape case was not in accordance to the "eye for en Eye" sharia.

      You dishonour my sister AND I dishonour yours plus more!

      How about the Honour Killings?

      In extreme situation anything can be sanctioned as Islamic sharia.

      It all rests with the jurists (learned scholars) who presides over these cases!

        Idiotic interpretations by idiots do not make something sanctioned by religion.
        The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist. And like that... he is gone.

          I am not quite sure what you are saying.

          Such interpretations are nor RANDOM! The sharia laws are replete with such "idiotic" interpretations.

          References would be the Hadood laws enforced in Pakistan

          The Islamic state of Saudi Arabia, Iran and ex-taleban afghanistan.

          According to your 'words of wisdom' they are all idiotic and are not sanctioned by the religion!

          How about the two verses listed above:

          Are they not 'idiotic' in its literal context?

            Talking about "idiotic" here's the epitome of idiotic:
            The hadiths/sunnah as compiled by esteemed scholars on matters of BLood Money or DIYAT:

              They are sayings by various people, the autneticity of which is a best Guess even if corraborated by several sources. Some make sense and some dont.

              I ignore those that dont make sense, no need to see the religion usaing glasses which may not be the right prescription

                    It really breaks my heart to read this stuff. I hope that someone knocks sense into their heads soon.

                      Nothing will change until the mass will it so!
                      And, the mass is equally confused!

                      Not a good situation, unfortunately!

                        hafeez123, this case was not tried in a shariah court, so you can expect any outcome. its all in your brain that everything fits where you want it to be.

                          Pakistan's Supreme Court has ordered an investigation into reports that four convicted killers sought to buy their freedom by offering girls in marriage to relatives of their victims.

                          According to local press reports, the four men had been sentenced to hang for murdering two men in the village of Mianwali in Punjab province in 1988.

                          The killers eventually cut a deal with the families of the victims to give them eight young girls and more than $130,000 in exchange for a pardon.

                          Three of the girls were less than 10 years old and the age of the youngest was one-and-a-half.

                          Islamic laws say convicts can be released if families of their victims accept cash compensation, but payment in women is not allowed.

                          The deal was reportedly cancelled on the advice of local elders and the four men are due to be executed on Saturday.

                          Secret deals

                          Pakistan's Chief Justice, Sheikh Riaz Ahmed, was quoted in the Dawn daily as saying the case violated the "law of the land and... the norms of the civilised world".

                          The country's Human Rights Commission has also sent a task force to Punjab to launch its own investigation.

                          Although deals involving women are illegal, human rights lawyer Zia Ahmad Awan told the AFP news agency they were still conducted in secret.

                          "Often money is paid, but under the table there is a payment by way of women and children," said Mr Awan, who heads the Karachi-based Lawyers for Human Rights and Legal Aid.

                          "This is trafficking in women and children... This is a form of slavery. This is a negation of Islamic law," he was quoted as saying.

                          A district mayor told the Reuters news agency that teenage daughters of two of the murderers had married two relatives of the victims - one aged 80 and the other 55.

                          But he said the men divorced the girls later the same day after local elders said the arrangement was unethical.

                          A local newspaper reporter, however, said the marriages were called off under police pressure.

                          Abuse

                          Women's rights in Pakistan came under international scrutiny earlier this month after a Punjabi woman was gang raped on the orders of a local tribal council.


                          The gang rape case aroused much anger


                          The Supreme Court is still investigating the gang rape, ordered because the girl's brother was seen walking unchaperoned with a woman from another tribe.

                          Following the case, which sparked outrage at home and abroad, Chief Justice Ahmed summoned the police chief of Punjab, along with other senior provincial officials, to appear before the Supreme Court.

                          The Human Rights Commission has recently published a report saying that rape and "honour killings" have become widespread in southern Punjab.

                          The report said more than 150 women were sexually assaulted in the first six months of the year in the area.

                          There were also about 40 so-called "honour killings", carried out by men who allege that the behaviour of a woman has brought dishonour to their family.

                          But the commission said law enforcement agencies were still treating the perpetrators with leniency.
