A group of Muslim migrant workers in the Indian city of Pune recently got a taste of what unjust “justice” feels like when they reportedly refused to fork over enough cash on celebration of Ganeshotsav, a celebrated Hindu festival.
In America, we’d probably be more likely to call the exercise they were forced to do a “squat,” but that’s hardly the point.
Take a look:
After the video subsequently went viral, the migrants quit their jobs and fled Pune out of fears that they might be targeted by local Hindu gangs for their refusal to pay.
There was no way to justify this barbaric form of so-called “justice,” but the irony seemed bittersweet.
Muslim nations such as Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Sudan abide by an equally barbaric system of law known as Shariah. Unlike the laws of Pune, however, Shariah law is far harsher, with punishment for simply stealing (as an example) being the dismemberment of hands or feet.
What these migrants therefore experienced in Pune was a small but still painful sample of what one might call “Shariah Lite.”
The estimated 51 percent of Muslims in the United States who believe Americans “should have the choice of being governed according to Shariah” ought to especially take note of what these migrants experienced.
There is little just, moral or right about Shariah law, and in an ideal world. Neither it nor its derivatives (including “Shariah Lite”) should be allowed to thrive in any nation — and anyone who disagrees could use a taste of their own medicine, much like these migrants just received.
