The religious moderates are silent .......this is a dangerous trend.

just because some lunatics in the name of religion goes on killing innocent girls and women because they are pursuing studies ..you can not credit the whole incident on the religion....

Is it happening in srilanka.......

look at america .....so many lone gunmen enters school and shoot at small kids and teachers ....is this done in the name of Christianity or any other religion..... No the media says he a mentally retard and they try to blame it on gun culture, if it was in afghan valley or pakistan the media will brush it totally a different version to it with religious line.

when the bodu bala & muslim congress spreading hatred in the south and east what is the law abiding citizen do.....in both sides...

just watching ........

when innocent children get molested/older women gets raped .......and the rate of crime against women go on increasing in srilanka...who is to be blamed ...and most of the crimes are done by the majority .....is the lord budhas teaching at fault ........no we never paint such crimes in line with respective religion.

when a muslim commits a crime then the bandwagon goes on......with terrorism....

who introduced terrorism to the world......

The so called Europeans & Americas.......they did by grabbing lands and made colonies and we had to work as slaves to the masters.

The freedom we are enjoying today its because our fore fathers shed their lives.....

and more recently the soldires....

So let us be independent in our thinking and have open mind on some of these issues without inclining to religious sentiments.

so lets not deviate from the subject this thread for Rizana.......May Allah grant her eternal peace and grant the highest level of paradise.

I want the saudi family have they forgotton this phrase in quran...

When Allah takes something as beloved from us as a child, it may be that He has taken it in order to give us something greater. It may be because of that loss, that we are admitted into paradise—an eternal life with our child. And unlike our life here, it is an everlasting life where our child will have no pain, fear, or sickness.
But in this life, even our own sicknesses may not be what they seem. Through them Allah may be in fact purifying us of our sins.

from:‘Build a home for my servant in Paradise and call it Baytul Hamd (the House of Praise).’ [Tirmidhi]

Allah tells us in the Quran:
“…But perhaps you hate a thing and it is good for you; and perhaps you love a thing and it is bad for you. And Allah Knows, while you know not.” (2:216)
Yet it is so difficult to look beyond the surface of things. It takes great strength to see beyond the illusions, to a deeper truth—which we may or may not understand. Just as my son could not understand how my depriving him of what he most wanted at that moment was in fact my looking out for him, we are often just as blind.
As a result, we end up staring indefinitely at the closed doors of our lives, and forget to notice the ones that have opened. When we can’t marry the person we had in mind, our inability to look beyond may even blind sight us from someone who is in fact better for us. When we don’t get hired, or we lose something dear to us, it’s hard to take a step back and notice the bigger picture. Often Allah takes things away from us, only to replace them with something greater.
Even tragedy may happen in this way. One can imagine few calamities more painful than the loss of a child. And yet, even this loss could happen to save us and give us something greater. The Prophet said:
If the child of a servant (of Allah) dies, Allah says to His Angels: ‘Have you taken the child of My servant?’
The Angels reply: ‘Yes.’
Allah says to them: ‘Have you taken the fruit of his heart?’
They reply: ‘Yes.’
Then Allah says to them: ‘What did my servant say?’
The Angels reply: ‘He praised Allah and said: ‘To Allah do we return.’

Allah tells them:
‘Build a home for my servant in Paradise and call it Baytul Hamd (the House of Praise).’ [Tirmidhi]

We muslims ....how far practicing the teachings...? speacially the current ones in Saudia .....

According to the founder of your cult, the poor girl has more chance of going to hell.
http://www.answering-islam.org/Women/in-hell.html

Your system/cult was designed for a bunch of bronze age arab tribesman so it ends up condoning slavery, child abuse and genocide. Would the real magic man in the sky design a system based on slavery, child brides and oppression of women?

Poor Rizana was killed by the teachings of your religion.

Anyway i dont want to insult your belief system (everyone is intitled to their delusions) and i'll end my posts on this thread, but try and read the history/creation of your religion (it might open your eyes).

We should not argue on religious matters. I think main idea of most of the religions is make better humans. So the main goal is usually pure but there are cntroversies among the methods described to achieve that goal.....it might be due to already existed culture(before that religion was founded) or/and due to geographical,environmental causes.
On the other hand greedy powerful people manipulate the religion for their benefits.
So imo most of the relogions are good at the basic levels.So we should not argue about religions but should critisize actions done manipulating or undercover of religion.

US raise serious concerns over impeachment, remains mum over Rizana beheading
The US on Thursday expressed serious concern over the impeachment proceedings against Sri Lanka’s first woman Chief Justice. However the US State Department spokesman did not comment on the beheading of Lankan maid Rizana Nafeek in Saudi Arabia adding that, “I will check with our folks and see if we have any views to share.”



On a question regarding the impeachment State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters, “s we said before, we had serious concerns about the actions that were taken to impeach the Chief Justice and the timing of the impeachment and that it raised serious questions about the process and government pressure on the judiciary,”



Excerpt from State Department Press Briefing;



QUESTION: (Inaudible) Sri Lanka.




MS. NULAND: Yeah.




QUESTION: A Sri Lankan maid was beheaded in Saudi Arabia this week for killing a baby in 2005. There are lots of human rights bodies which are opposing this. How do you see this beheading of a Sri Lankan maid in Saudi Arabia?




MS. NULAND: I don’t have anything on that one way or the other, Lalit. I will check with our folks and see if we have any views to share.




QUESTION: And on the continued impeachment of the Sri Lankan chief justice, now there’s a confrontation between the Sri Lankan parliament and the court, supreme court. One of the courts have said it’s – the decision taken by Sri Lankan parliament is not valid. How do you see this ongoing confrontation between the various wings of the government?




MS. NULAND: Well, I understand the parliament is just back from recess and we are, as we said before, we had serious concerns about the actions that were taken to impeach the chief justice and the timing of the impeachment, and that it raised serious questions about the process and government pressure on the judiciary. With regard to what’s been happening today with the parliament back in session, let me see if we have any further comment for you, Lalit

anyway, we have resepct to thier law.


Here I do not want to talk about the origin of the old aged laws and the reasons prevailed in that time to introduce them.

I am sure about one thing.

As "hanoifortune" said,
the Saudi family in power use these horrific systems to suppress the people and control that country in a very brutal way. No one can talk or criticize their actions, police or cultural police will come to you and it will be the end of everything.
All live in fear and no one will rise against anything.

They use the religion for their own benefit. America will do nothing as long as they dance to its tune.

Do not go to that country to work if you can find any other place.

If you go, even if you are a Muslim, do not look at any woman, do not engage in any argument. The farther of my Muslim friend lost his life in the open air jail. Reason to go to prison: the old man came out without his passport to go to the nearby mosque for praying. (no identity when checked) Punishment: 2 weeks in open air prison in hot season. Old man suffocated due to heat and dehydration.

Non-muslims, do not talk anything about any God or try to explain about your religion to any one.

There are many good Saudi Muslims who understand this situation , they will never take any chance to come forward to talk behalf of you.

33Sri Lankan maid Rizana Nafeek beheaded in Saudi Arabia  - Page 2 Empty EU expresses shock over execution Thu Jan 10, 2013 7:50 pm

The European Union expressed dismay that Saudi Arabia had beheaded a young Sri Lankan domestic helper convicted of murdering her employer's baby, despite repeated appeals for a stay of execution. She was a Muslim.

“I am deeply dismayed by the information that Sri Lankan national Ms Rizana Nafeek was executed,'' EU foreign affairs head Catherine Ashton said in a statement.

“On numerous occasions, the EU had called for the execution to be commuted and had asked the authorities to exercise all their powers in order to grant her relief from the death penalty,'' Ashton said.

The helper “was most probably a minor at the time of the crime,'' she added.

Nafeek was executed yesterday after she was found guilty of smothering the baby following an argument with the child's mother, her employer, the Saudi interior ministry said in a statement carried by the official SPA news agency.

Human rights groups said Nafeek was 17 at the time of the offense and that Saudi Arabia was one of just three countries in the world to impose the death penalty for crimes committed as a minor.

“I recognize the serious nature of the crime involved and express my sincere sympathy to the family of the victim. However, I do not believe that their loss has been mitigated by Nafeek's death,'' Ashton said. “The EU opposes the use of capital punishment in all cases and under all circumstances and calls for a global moratorium as a first step towards its universal abolition. Capital punishment represents an irreversible loss of human life.’’(DS)

Sri Lanka has recalled its Ambassador in Saudi Arabia with immediate effect to express the country’s displeasure over the execution of Sri Lankan house maid Rizana Nafeek.

Rizana Nafeek, a Sri Lankan domestic worker convicted of killing a baby in her care in 2005 when she was 17 was executed yesterday.

It was earlier reported that the Saudi Arabia’s Interior Ministry under Prince Mohammed bin Nayef bin Abdul Aziz has issued instructions for Nafeek’s execution.

Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa also sent an appeal to King Abdullah on January 6, 2013, requesting a stay of the execution until a settlement can be reached between the baby’s family and a Saudi reconciliation committee.

Nafeek had been working in Saudi Arabia for two weeks in 2005 when the Utaibi family’s 4-month-old baby died in her care. Nafeek retracted a confession that she said was made under duress, and says that the baby died in a choking accident while drinking from a bottle. Authorities have incarcerated Nafeek in Dawadmi prison since 2005.


Human Rights Watch interviews with Sri Lankan embassy officials and reporting from Arab News found serious problems with Nafeek’s access to lawyers and competent interpreters during her interrogation and trial. Nafeek had no access to legal counsel until after a court in Dawadmi sentenced her to death by beheading in 2007.


In 2010, Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court upheld Nafeek’s conviction and death sentence, exhausting all judicial remedies unless new evidence emerges.

International law prohibits the death penalty for crimes committed before the age of 18. A recruitment agency in Sri Lanka altered the birthdate on Nafeek’s passport to present her as 23 so she could migrate for work, but her birth certificate shows she was 17 at the time. The High Court in Colombo, Sri Lanka later sentenced two recruitment agents to two years in prison for the falsification of Nafeek’s travel documents.

If this happened in non muslim country, what will our muslim people do? I know that you can easily imagine the situation. Sharia is a law not a religion. Most muslim men and leaders manipulate their law which is benefited to them. I kindly request from muslim people to understand the truth at least now.

There are some few points I like to emphasize here,
1.Children are the most valuable things to the parents.So parents should not send their under-aged children to work.There should be a law punishing parents if they send their under-aged children for works.
2.Government should take proper actions to catch false agencies who do this type of things.
3.People who are willing to go abroad should be taught atleast basic laws of the relavent country.If any country practices unethical laws we should not send our people to those countries.

We are bound to obey the law of the country we are living. It can be either Saudi Arabia or USA. We are entering to the country by accepting their law and regulation.

In Saudi Arabia, they are practicing mixture of sharia law and their own law. As a person, working in this region (not Saudi Arabia) for some time, I can say, if there is a dispute between their own nationality or between two non-nationalities, then the law is implemented on fair manner. If the dispute is between a nationality and non nationality, then it's favouring to it's own citizen over a foreign national.

What you are saying is factually correct.
But being beheaded with a sword in a small, dusty town in a faraway land is a sad way to go, especially for a possibly innocent girl who was trying to earn a livelihood. That's the point, really.

In this particular case, a barbaric "diyabariya law" designed by a bronze age cult is used to control women and children.
Another innocent life sacrificed on the alter of the mullahs/monks/priests/rabbis/holymen.....
I agree with you fully.
Let me add that Sri Lanka should stop sending females who are non-professional / technical to those regions with immediate effect.
Let them wash their own dirty linen and rape their own women covered in burkas, then subjecting ours.

. Agree with you Monster. I think we all agree this is a very sad incident. Saudi royal family rules it as they wish and as poor outsiders we cannot do much. I really hope sl government will lift the living standard of this family in Muttur. At the moment we should not go against Saudi. We are not in a position to do that.

I am honestly willing to contribute financially from my side, if any organization is willing to collect funds to uplift her family.

Imagine the mental frame of a young girl for the past seven years in an unknown country and that too in a jail, awaiting to be beheaded. The mere thought of awaiting this death in a lonely cell is certainly enough to cripple even the strongest of man. So think about the plight of Rizana who may be dying minute after minute past six years. Is this Islam? This is mockery of Islam and Shariah!

Do not worry that some (Dirty) Mulla will come soon from the same (Dirty) land and give away their (Dirty) Money (Bismillah) to the people around the village and all will be forgotten then. Very Happy

I think this thread should be locked otherwise there may be mudsling to religions.
