If there were ever any doubts that Islam is trapped in the 6th Century, this story should dispel them. Any religion that bans beer and hugging women – two acts that are almost inseparable – is seriously flawed.
ISLAMABAD – Pakistan’s parliament fined a national hockey player and two team officials for un-Islamic behavior after pictures circulated of them hugging a woman and apparently drinking alcohol in Argentina last month.
Pakistan is a conservative Muslim country where men hugging women in public is taboo and even men shaking hands with women is frowned upon. Drinking alcohol is illegal for Muslims.
Brothers don’t shake hands. Brothers gotta hug!
National field hockey team player Rehan Butt was fined 100,000 rupees ($1,175) while coach Shahid Ali Khan and manager Asif Bajwa were fined 50,000 rupees ($600) each, the chairman of the National Assembly’s standing committee on sports said. (H/T – )
100,000 rupees for a hug? If he was going to get fined, he should have made it worth his while by French kissing her and touching her goodies. I’m just sayin’.
