Zarina was a teenage girl from Afghanistan who was married off to an older Muslim man. Like many women in such marriages, she was not happy and wanted to see her parents and eventually divorce him. He wanted to keep her isolated. Out of anger, he woke her up one morning, beat her up, and then sliced off her ears before fleeing:
A former child bride has had her ears hacked off by her husband after he accused her of speaking to other men.
Zarina from Afghanistan got married at the age of 13 and her husband is on the run having attacked her.
The couple were sleeping at their home in the northern province of Balkh when he suddenly woke her up, bound her and mutilated her.
Having suffered the beating, she told the BBC: ‘I haven’t committed any sin.
‘I don’t know why my husband did this to me.’
Zarina said her husband had tried to stop her from seeing her parents, and that she wanted to divorce him.
‘He is a very suspicious man and often accused me of talking to strange men when I went to visit my parents,’ she told Tolo News.
Sadly, her case is not an isolated on in Afghanistan. (source)
The violence of Islam that is becoming common across Europe and eventually, America again shows how the problem with Islam is one of religion and not race. Afghanis are not violent because they possess some particular genetic or physical trait that makes them do these things- they do these things because Islam gives them the license to do them. It is a disease of the soul, not of the body, which Christianity came to cure.
There are many decent, normal people who by reason none other than birth are a part of the world of Islam and subjected to such terrible things. As such, it is critically important to pray and make sacrifice for such Muslims- both the persecuted and the persecutors- for the sake of their salvation as well as our own, remembering that there are many Muslims that are would-be believers with only a slight nudge in the right direction. The situation in Germany has shown this well, for while Muslims are being brought in by the score with evil intentions in mind, there has been a huge number who use this as the opportunity they needed to abandon Islam and come home to Christ.
