On the Wing

Flying in the face of widespread left wing extremism!

Dress Right or Die, Lady!

Another stroke of tolerance from one of the sons of the religion of peace.

I found this in The Times:

An Islamic fundamentalist shot and killed a female Pakistani minister yesterday because of her refusal to wear a Muslim veil.

Police said that the bearded attacker had singled out the prominent women’s rights activist in the belief that women should not be in politics.
Zilla Huma Usman, the Punjab provincial minister for social welfare and supporter of President Musharraf, was shot as she prepared to address a public gathering in the town of Gujranwala, 70km (43 miles) north of the provincial capital, Lahore. As party members threw rose petals at her, the gunman shot her in the head, police said. They identified the attacker as Malulvi Ghulam Sarwar and said that he was opposed to the participation of women in politics and the refusal of many professional women in Pakistan to wear the veil.

“He killed her because she was not observing the Islamic code of dress. She was also campaigning for emancipation of women,” Nazir Ahmad, a police officer, said.

I wonder how all the died-in-the-wool feminists in the west will react?

If they react….
