UK Girl Converts to Islam for Man - Still Attacked with Acid.

This is the 80-year-old man who hired two thugs to throw acid in the face of his ex-girlfriend when he became convinced that the 20-year-old was seeing another man after their relationship ended.

Vikki Horsman was left horribly burned and disfigured after she was doused with the sulphuric acid as she went to answer the door at her friend's house in Tividale, West Midlands.

Her ex-lover, Mohammed Rafiq, was today found guilty of arranging the attack in revenge for Miss Horsman, who had converted to Islam during their relationship, breaking up with him.

Pakistan-born Rafiq persuaded Steven Holmes, 25, and Shannon Heaps, 22, to carry out the attack and initially pretended he was also a victim after he too was splashed by the acid.

2. Your self made title is misleading, the attack has to do with jealousy of a crazy dirty old man, it

has nothing to do with Islam....but you already knew that.

"What disturbs me most is the Islamic war again women, which makes the Christian war on women look like a harmless play fight, yet many progressives look the other way or excuse these things are isolated cultural phenoma. Are we not feminists?"

27. So now yr claiming yr interest is brutality against women?

In that case, why is it that nearly every post from you here at DU is about Muslims and you don't have anything to say about violence against women if it's carried out by anyone but a Muslim?

13. I see the defenders/apologists are out today.

 

The acid hurling community thanks you all.

"Acid attack? Hooey! Look over there! A Christian said something mean!"

Predictable as the weather.

15. The OP's title was misleading.

 

Pointing out the actual reason for the attack--the woman seeing another man--is not being an apologist for fundamentalist Islam.

19. Oh please...

 

I posted 3 links from other posters and you didn't bat an eyelash.

I suspect if it was Christian fundamentalists , your responses would be different.

Deal with reality.

I posted multiple links and articles re acid attacks and women and you rather throw slurs than deal with the truth.

21. So tell us what the truth is...

I can't help but notice that you focus on Muslims to the exclusion of all else in yr posts at DU, yet the website you link to in this thread to support yr fascination with Muslims says something different...

Acid attacks are a worldwide phenomenon that are not restricted to a particular race, religion or geographical location.

23. did you notice fred sanders slur?

The expression "man up" is sexist.

Funny how all the concern folks let that one slip by.


Eta - see post number 4.

If you have a problem with a post, alert on it.

btw, if you'd been reading you'd have seen that the website linked to in post 4 is the one that says: 'Acid attacks are a worldwide phenomenon that are not restricted to a particular race, religion or geographical location. '

29. I did alert, thanks

Acid attacks occur in highly misogynistic countries like Iran, India, KSA, Afganistan, Pakistan Colombia etc.

The reality is that most muslim countries are highly misogynistic, women are considered nothing but property. Further, no one knows how many attacks actually happen in arab and muslim countries because the crimes are not always reported.

30. So can you explain what this *truth* is that 'Rhinodawg' is claiming we're all not seeing?

See, I suspect that *truth* has zero to do with concern with brutality against women and everything to do with focusing on Muslims to the exclusion of all else.

17. The woman deserved to be attacked? There was a valid reason?

And in what culture are acid attacks prevalent?

Deform them. So that no one else will ever want them.

18. OFFS, that's not what I said and you know it.

 

The motive for the attack was the woman leaving him. Replace acid with knife, gun, vehicle, bat, hammer, or whatever, and this could have been from anywhere in the world from anyone.

That the guy is Muslim is completely and utterly fucking irrelevant.

26. While Christian cops here are gunning down people in the street because of their skin color.

 


Isis is chopping heads off, much like Columbus did in killing the people here (though Columbus was far more bloodthirsty than today's Muslims, it appears) so we could inhabit this country.


Heck of a world.
