A woman is recovering after having her fingers chopped off by her husband in Bangladesh, a majority Muslim nation. One of the husband’s relatives then threw her fingers in the trash so they couldn’t be reattached by surgeons.
Obviously, this sounds extremely harsh.
But multiculturalism teaches that all cultures should be celebrated, right? Isn’t that what progressives like Linda Sarsour tell us?
So what was this wife’s crime? Oh, one of the worst:
Rafiqul Islam, 30, blindfolded his wife Hawa Akhter, 21, and taped her mouth, telling her he was going to give her a surprise present.
Instead he made her hold out her hand and cut off all five fingers. One of his relatives then threw Ms Akhter’s fingers in the dustbin to ensure doctors could not reattach them.
Mr Islam, who is a migrant worker in the United Arab Emirates, had warned his wife there would ‘severe consequences’ if she did not give up her studies.
That’s right, multiculturalists. Her husband maimed her for going to college:
“After he came back to Bangladesh, he wanted to have a discussion with me,” Ms Akhter told The Times.
“Suddenly, he blindfolded me and tied my hand. He also taped my mouth saying that he would give me some surprise gifts. But, instead he cut off my fingers.”
Luckily, Islam is facing life in prison for his crime. And Akhter, showing great bravery, is learning to write with her other hand — and intends to resume her studies.
What Akhter faced is not a one-off incident, but indicative of what women throughout the world really face at the hand of the world’s most oppressively misogynist ideology, Islam.
Meanwhile, progressive “feminists” in the United States — led by their Jew-hating, Sharia-supporting, Saudi Arabia-shilling, jihad-declaring hero Linda Sarsour — claim that the United States under Trump is becoming just like the totalitarian society depicted in The Handmaid’s Tale because Trump doesn’t think taxpayers should be forced to pay for their abortions.
Show me a woman who has been brutally attacked like Akhter in this country for the crime of seeking an education. Show me one. Hell, women outnumber men at American universities.
Those of you wearing those ridiculous Handmaid’s Tale costumes, and telling us how Islam and feminism are so compatible: maybe go visit Akhter and raise some money for her recovery and education. Actually do something for women for once.
