Accused Pakistani woman has feet chopped off

A Pakistani man and some of his relatives chopped off his wife’s feet after accusing her of being promiscuous, police said on Saturday.

The 32-year-old woman told police her feet were chopped off on June 24 by her husband, her father-in-law, a brother-in-law and two others after they accused her of being “of bad character”, a euphemism for promiscuous.

Of course, this has nothing to do with Islam, folks, even though President Pervez Musharraf is trying to project Pakistan as a moderate and progressive Muslim nation. This was just an abberation. Move along, now, there’s nothing to see here. Move along.
