Islamic Justice for Women

One sided justice for a male dominated "religion", or whatever Islam is:
"Victim Ordered to Wed Rapist
BOMBAY -- Hard-line Islamic clerics in a northern Indian village have declared that a woman's 10-year-old marriage was nullified when her father-in-law raped her -- and ordered the mother of five to marry the rapist.

The fatwa, or religious edict, was issued by Darool Uloom Deoband, South Asia's most powerful Islamic theological school known for promoting a radical brand of Islam that is said to have inspired the Taliban in Afghanistan."

To his credit, the victim's husband blamed his father and said that he still loved his wife and would not desert her. He was overruled by the powerful Muslim governing body. Where will stand the ACLU when this religious justice comes to America?
