We got this news from Pakistan:
Pakistan Gunmen shot dead five women working on U.N.-backed polio vaccination efforts in two different Pakistani cities on Tuesday, officials said, a major setback for a campaign that international health officials consider vital to contain the crippling disease but which Taliban insurgents say is a cover for espionage.
The women who were killed Tuesday — three of whom were teenagers — were all shot in the head at close range. Four of them were gunned down in the southern port city of Karachi, and the fifth in a village outside the northwest city of Peshawar. Two men who were working alongside the women were also critically wounded in Karachi.
The polio campaign in Pakistan has been shaken by Islamists’ threats. Let’s recall what happened in June this year.
An Islamist in Muzaffargarh declared the polio campaign ‘un-Islamic’ and announced at the local mosque that Jihad should be carried out against the visiting polio vaccination team.the local polio team entered Muzaffargarh’s rural Khan Pur Bagga Sher area and asked local families to cooperate with the campaign.
When the local cleric, Maulvi Ibrahim Chisti found out about the campaign, he immediately went to the biggest mosque in the area and declared that polio drops are ‘poison’ and against Islam. He added that if the polio team forced anybody to partake in the vaccination campaign, then Jihad was ‘the only option’…It’s a Western conspiracy to render Muslims impotent!
What do Islamists want?
Islamists want boys to be physically crippled by polio and mentally crippled by Islam.
Like other religions, Islam is against science. Science and religion are 100 percent contradictory. Some cunning religionists claim that god created science so that they use all the technology products and scientific medicine without being questioned. But some dumbhonest (dumb but honest) religionists are reluctant to use anything scientific. Pakistani dumbhonest Islamists are so much against polio vaccine that they do not hesitate to kill polio workers. These Islamists believe prayers, not vaccines, are needed to get rid of polio.
Islamists are trying their best to make the world crippled. Should we continue to keep our mouth shut? We shouldn’t.
