"TIME" to stop the abuse...

Well done to Time magazine for the shocking cover of this weeks edition. It is the story of 18 year old Aisha who ran away from an abusive marriage only to be caught by her husband, brother in law and local Taliban militia.

Aisha was held down by her brother in law while her husband sliced off her nose and ears... with the approval of the local Taliban commander.

Is there any hope for the future of Afghanistan with the Taliban in place? Clearly not. These barbaric images are part of daily life, including the stoning to death of women condemned (wrongly in most cases) of adultery.

If only the 'sharia law' imposers could learn a single lesson from the Bible, I would like it to be the following : 'Let he who is free from sin cast the first stone'

Sadly, and once again archaic extremist groups are giving the great religion of Islam a bad reputation.
Meanwhile the women continue to suffer silently....again...and again
