There are no words. But Obama's directive, "respect it."
The use of amputation, though it differs slightly from exact Qur'anic prescriptions (are we thus to understand it has "nothing to do with Islam?"), suggests Qur'an 5:33: "The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom."
"Jihadi's [sic] chopped hands of Malayalam Professor - 'Crusaders' get the taste of 'Jihad'," from Haindava Keralam, July 4 (thanks to GS):
THODUPUZHA: Christians in Kerala now started getting the true taste of Jihad . Five Jihadi fanatics today chopped of the hands of Malayalam Professor.
A Malayalam professor T J Joseph of the Newman College, who is under suspension for preparing a defamatory question for an exam paper, was attacked by a gang of five men at Muvatupuzha when he was coming back from church.
His crime - A question prepared by the professor for a Exam was offensive to Jihadis.
Government Action - Government who never misses a point to score when it comes to the matter of winning Jihadi hearts suspended the Professor.
Jihadi's who have scant regard to rule of the land decided to impose Sharia punishment to this professor. Professor Joseph and his family were attacked by Jihadi's today when he was coming back from Church after attending Sunday mass.
Repeated warnings of Hindu organisations in Kerala about the growth of Jihadi fanatics in Kerala were repeatedly brushed aside by so called 'Secular Soceity' [sic] as the propaganda of Hindu Communalists.
UPDATE: Babu Suseelan, Hindu human rights activist, comments on this Islamic (sharia) brutality. Mr Suseelan spoke at our "Protest against the 911 Islamic Supremacist mosque here":
This brutal, inhuman, Sharia crime of chopping a hand of a Professor happened in the Marxist ruled Kerala, the land of Sankaracharya. What a shame! And Jihadis did it on a day time at a public road where on lookers were scared off with a fire bomb.
It is nothing new in Kerala. Few months ago a Hindu teacher was butchered alive in front of students in the class room. There is criminal nexus in Kerala against Hindus and our civilization. Marxists have been colluding with Jihadi terrorists for a long time. Criminal Jihadis and Marxist murderers are never apprehended, or prosecuted for their heinous crimes. These brutal chopping of hands clearly shows that Islamic destructiveness is active in Kerala. Marxists government has carved out a district (Mallapuram) for Jihadis. Now they have established a branch of Aligarh Muslim University in Kerala. The Marxist government wanted to introduce an Islamic Bank in Kerala. Thanks to Dr. Subramaniyan Swamy's legal fight and the court has banned it.
These criminal acts clearly shows their spiritual malignancy. Muslims and Marxists believe and practice destructiveness. They want to kill all non-believers in their own selected ways, fast or slow, sooner or later.
Our best defense against Islamic destructiveness lies in the courageous application of our strength and determination. To see all forms of Islamic and Marxist destructiveness from the standpoint of their dominant principles would seem to be logical progress toward preservation of our life and culture.
One would expect that in the face of these overwhelming blows at the hands of Jihadis and Marxists, Hindus would join together and oppose steadfastly to dealt with destruction caused by jihadis. But this is not the case.
Why not Hindus question the death instinct of Muslims? Why not Hindus unite and strongly and valiantly fight against Islamic brutality and Marxist violence?
