Still Waters

Recommended Posts

A 16-year-old girl has been buried alive by her relatives in Turkey as punishment for talking to boys, police have said.

Medine Memi was found in a sitting position with her hands tied, in a two-metre hole dug under a chicken pen outside her home in Kahta, in the south-eastern province of Adiyaman.

Her father and grandfather have since been arrested and are due to face trial over her death. Her mother was also charged but has since been released.

It's not just the fact of how can a man kill his own daughter and granddaughter, it's the horrific way in which it was done, you wouldn't kill a dog like this, i've been to Turkey and it's certainly a country of contrasts women wear mini skirts and pornography's openly sold from cigarette kiosks.

Turkey does not recognise Sharia! It is a secular society since Revolution of 1917, a democracy. But some rural throwbacks do recognise them. European part with Istanbul is an European country in full sense, but what happens in Asia Minor only God knows.

Yep. And the few peeps I know who are from Turkey find this just as sickening. Not *all* of Turkey abids like this.. and as Mara points out, it's generaly the rual areas. So instead of condemning a whole country for something that obviously is *NOT* shared by every Turk.. Hells even the host of TYT who is Turkish was seriously outraged by this.

Turkey is far from Suadi Arabia or any other country that reconizes Shari Law unilateraly. With hope the Turk government will bring them up on this crime and with hopes it'll prevent other rural family clans to *not* do something this sick.

But they are a member of the Organization of Islamic States, and a signatory of the Sharia-based Cairo Declaration (aka Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Islam).

They should be buried alive or at least pretend to do so to see how it feels.

They ARE a state with Muslim majority - why would not it be a member of Islamic Conference? Russia also sits there as observer and wants membership, because it has plenty of Muslims. As for the Declaration, to be honest I am not familiar with this document, so it is hard to make an opinion for me. Turkey is a secular state - I said this because someone here accused it in following Sharia laws.

I know for myself that I would NEVER, even on a gunpoint, put in my mouth anything made for export in an Islamic state - but Turkish and Iranian products I eat with no back thought. Because it is only American propaganda which makes these states extremist. This is of course a household level of world politics. I would eat North Korean stuff too (if such exists on the markets :) ), as for sure they have standards there and no malice. I was struggling wanting to buy pickles made in West Bank, until my friends from Israel assured me they are absolutely safe and all Israel eats them. But try to offer me Saudi, Lebanese, Yemen, Somalian, Pakistani or Emirates product and you would call me "a racist".

Search the Cairo Declaration. It's basically sharia-law, and Turkey is a signatory of it.

A Senegalese jurist, Adama Dieng. Dieng, a Muslim, who subsequently became a United Nations special rapporteur, then serving as secretary-general to the International Commission of Jurists,declared forthrightly in February 1992 that the Cairo Declaration, under the rubric of the Shari'a,
...gravely threatens the inter-cultural consensus on which the international human rights instruments are based; introduces, in the name of the defense of human rights, an intolerable discrimination against both non-Muslims and women; reveals a deliberately restrictive character in regard to certain fundamental rights and freedoms..; [and] confirms the legitimacy of practices, such as corporal punishment, that attack the integrity and dignity of the human being.

Feel free to read the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Islam. It is anything but a declaration of human rights.

In 1992 Turkey was an ultimate US ally! This means US approved this move, probably trying to control other Islamic states through Turkey :unsure: Also they are signatories to the UN Declaration of Human Rights from 1948.

We have many Islamic allies, doesn't mean we approve of their human rights violations.

Turkey may be a signatory of the UN Declaration of Human Rights, but that doesn't change the fact that they are also signatories of the Cairo Declaration.

I'm not saying they follow the things in the Cairo Declaration; I'm simply saying they are a signatory to it, and it's based on Sharia law, so the notion that Turkey doesn't recognize Sharia isn't entirely true.

Just to Point out no where in the article does it mention they were even Muslim.

It's pretty obvious which religion in the Middle East punishes girls for talking to boys, Akuma.

this was an Honor killing, Honor killings do not only happen in Muslim countries, nor are they all committed by Muslims

.

Turkey isnt an entirely Muslim country, and usually when I read articles regarding Muslims i always see them mention their religion :P

Sure, but let's not kid ourselves. I'd say over 90 per cent of honor killings in the Middle East are committed by Muslims.
