It’s a good thing people keep reminding us that Islam is a religion of peace, otherwise we might reach the conclusion that it’s a religion filled with violence.
Why? Because daily news reports basically reinforce the idea that militant Muslims are given to senseless acts of brutality and killing.
The latest example comes to us from India, where a Muslim dude just shot his sister in the throat for refusing an honor marriage.
Shabnam Nayeem decided that she didn’t want to marry the guy that somebody else had picked out for her.
So her brother, who is surprisingly named Mohammed, shot her at point blank range.
Amazingly, she survived. A metal locket she was wearing protected her.
But guess what? Shabnam isn’t pressing charges against her brother.
Maybe all is forgiven. Perhaps it was just a family spat that went a little too far.
And maybe, just maybe, her family will let her marry a guy she loves now!
