I came across two stories today that illustrate how wonderful and sane Islam is. The first is about an Afghan prison that houses women convicted of the horrible crime of showing “bad character.” This story is only about 2 weeks old so, yeah, your taxes are probably keeping that prison protested.
And the other story showing what a wonderful religion Islam is concerns Ismail Mohamed Didi, a 25 year-old air traffic controller at Male International Airport in the Maldives who was first investigated by his employers for apostasy and then later found hanged from the airport’s control tower.
The death of Ismail Mohamed Didi, a 25 year-old air traffic controller, prompted deep concern on the Islamic website Raajjeislam which reported that Ismail “was a person inclined to atheism” and had:
Declared his atheism to his friends.
The website alleged that Ismail had refused to follow religious sermons.
Ain’t Islam grand?
[UPDATE 7.15.10 – new information about the 2nd story here]
