Your Daily Muslim: Mohammad Khan Sherani

He belongs in a dementia ward, not behind a podium.

He belongs in a dementia ward, not behind a podium.

Islamic scholar Maulana Mohammad Khan Sherani’s mind is a relic of the seventh century, and from the looks of him, he’s probably lived that long. He is known for being an intellectual and an agriculturist. However, any westerner would dispute his status as an intellectual. Currently serving as chairman of Pakistan’s Council on Islamic Ideology, Sherani decided that rape cases needed to be tried the old-fashioned way, and that DNA evidence would probably implicate too many of his posse who liked to occasionally get their rape on.

“The DNA test is not acceptable as primary evidence in rape cases, but it could be considered as supporting evidence,” Sherani stated, regarding a ruling from the Council that prevents DNA from being used as primary evidence to prove rape. Uhh, DNA is the most concrete proof of rape out there, as solid as video footage. To dismiss or marginalize its importance is ludicrous.

Sherani’s motive for trying to suppress the admission of DNA evidence in court is likely tied to his sexist beliefs. In 2006, he fought against the Women’s Protection Act of 2006, claiming it violated Islamic sharia principles. He added that Islam has procedures in place for determining guilt in rape cases. Let’s see what those procedures are… oh yeah, a rape victim has to find four devout Muslim male witnesses who will testify on her behalf. If one of those men turned on her and claimed she had consented, she would instead be punished for adultery by either lashing or death. Tons of rapes likely go unreported in the Islamic world out of victims’ fear and their inability to report the crime.

Sherani has also spoken in favor of Pakistan’s harsh anti-blasphemy laws, which are often manipulated to punish religious minorities such as Christians. I wonder if the old man even knows what century it is, and that stoning people to death is a practice that should’ve died out centuries ago.

  1. Hmmmm….well, after all, even though Mo Hammed invented (child) rape, he didn’t invent DNA tests, so can they really exist?

  2. What DNA would do is prove most of the men *all* brought up on charges and swearing on the Koran they aren’t rapists, are in fact guilty. Which would prove that they are a culture of rape and violence living under the facade of being religious. You can’t have the truth come out and make everyone look bad, so lash the victim to death for being violated, she’s only as valuable as a broken plate.
