Brave muslim woman cuts of rapist’s penis and hands it over to shocked police as evidence

[Silvana Shaktar, Muslim Affairs Contributor]

MailOnline:  Monju Begum, 40, who lives in Bangladesh, claims that when Mozammel Haq Mazi broke into her house and tried to rape her, during the attack she managed to cut off his penis and struggle free and run off to a nearby police station where she handed the penis over to shocked officers for forensic tests and as evidence.

The police said that the woman had painstakingly wrapped the penis in a plastic bag when she delivered the organ to them. They later on handed the penis over to hospital authorities who tried desperately to re-attach the dislocated organ to Mozammel unsuccessfully and have now discarded it.

It is not known whether the penis rejected the man, or vice versa during the operation.

Mozammel, who is now in hospital recovering, said that he was having an affair with the woman who had become angry with him when he refused to move in with her. It was then, he alleges, that she brutally cut off his manhood and ran away with it.

The married man and father of five children is due to be arrested and brought to court once he has recovered from the loss.

US Patriot Act extended to 2015 and gives government direct access to 300 million mobiles

[Boris Karliss, US News Contributor]

RT.com:  A buoyant President Obama and the US Congress successfully collaborated to continue America’s controversial ‘war on terror‘ with the extension of the US Patriot Act until 2015.  This means that the police and secret service will have blanket authority to spy on all Americans, whether they are involved in terror activities or not, for four more years when the Act is likely to be extended again.

Compulsory Internal Digital Examinations for Travellers

This event coupled with rumours abounding of a move by the US government to authorise internal digital examination for all travellers through US airports, US human rights activists are saying that the wide range of spying methods authorised to be employed against law-abiding citizens are being used by the Obama administration as fear tools for political advantage.

US Governments Latest Spy Tool Against Americans

With the collaboration of the major US wireless operators, the US government now has achieved a direct link to each and every hand held device in the USA. This will enable it with an alert system whereby the president and government agencies can send direct messages to each American with a handheld device warning of terror threats, weather disasters, etc. As this is just the start of the scheme many are fearing that it will soon become far more intrusive.

The system is due to become operative by the end of the year and will be fully nationwide by the middle of 2012.

MailOnline: Pregnant Spice Victoria Beckham has been apparently caught unawares by the paparazzi in a Los Angeles park, California,  whilst kicking a ball with her six-year-old son in stylishly elegant stilletoed five-inches-high luxury boots.

It seems that the famous footballer’s wife version of ‘quality’ time has very much to do with her elegant apparel rather than more appropriate sports wear bearing in mind her current delicate condition.  The celebrity’s baby is due in July and will be the couple’s fourth child.

Parents angry over kissing and raunchy scenes by Britney and Rihanna

MailOnline:  Kissing, sexy dance routines on a recent TV show by pop stars, Rihanna and Britney Spears, have made parents furious according to the Parents Television Council (‘PTC’) which called the stars’ performance at the Billboards Music Awards:  ‘..a Vegas stripper show…totally was unsuitable for young children’.

The parent’s lobbying group is calling on families and advertisers to boycott the event which was shown on ABC network owned by family friendly Disney.

According to TPC spokesman Tim Winter: ‘It certainly has no place at 8:00 p.m. on the publicly-owned broadcast airwaves ..I cannot imagine what would possibly lead the ABC television network to air a profanity-laced, S&M sex show on primetime broadcast television… the overtly sexualized performance by Rihanna and Britney Spears was no accident or mishap, but a deliberate effort to target teens with images and lyrics that glamorize whips, chains and other sexual fantasies.’

There have been no complaints from young viewers thus far and the stars and ABC have made not comments.

Shocking BBC Report, Indian authorities turn a blind eye to the killing of millions of female babies

BBC News:  The latest data from the Indian National Census have shown gender discrimination in India to have gone horrifically off the rails as it seems that in the past ten years, more that eight million female babies have been killed by their parents under the noses and apparent consent of the Indian authorities.

The recent Indian census figures show a sharp decline in the number of girls under seven which cannot be explained in any other way than by mass abortions of female fetuses and/or manslaughter of female babies.  Compared to 1961, the proportion of 975 girls on 1000 boys has dropped to around a small 913 on 1000.

However, for those who might think that a difference by less than a hundred  might be caused by certain non-violent factors, here are some facts.

As stated in the recent National Census report data, ‘out of 133,738 births, in families where the first child was a girl, the ratio of girls to boys among second children was 759 girls per 1,000 boys’. Furthermore, according to a UNICEF case study in 1984 in Bombay, ‘7,999 out of 8,000 of the aborted fetuses were females.’  Understandably therefore, the female abortion business seems to have long roots in modern India, and for a reason.

According to professor Shirish Sheth of Breach Candy Hospital in Mumbai: “Daughters are regarded as a liability…Because she will eventually belong to the family of her future husband, expenditure on her will benefit others. In some communities where the custom of dowry prevails, the cost of her dowry could be phenomenal.”

Kulwant, a middle-aged Indian housewife, is one of the many who can testify that due to the development of ultrasound technology which enables the early identification of the sex of fetuses, female babies’ abortions have become quite a normal event in any Indian woman’s life.  The costs of the abortion varies from a couple of hundred US dollars in the best Delhi clinics, up to four dollars in increasingly shabby legal and illegal institutions that enable the majority to afford it at decreasing prices, but steadily growing health risks. Effectively, she had to abort three daughters in order to avoid divorce.

Before her fourth child – a son- was born, she had to suffer regular beatings from her husband and once, she says, even his family tried to burn her alive for ‘bringing financial girl-related trouble upon the house’.
