“Woman of Courage,” Maria Bashir, Touted by Michelle Obama Sends Other Women to Jail for Adultery


What happens when Michelle Obama and Hilary Clinton hails, Maria Bashir,  as a  champion of women’s rights, and it turns out that this woman throws other women in jail for adultery?

Delicious irony, that’s what!   The Daily Mail has more…

Last year she was hailed as one of the most influential people in the world – a defender of women’s rights as Afghanistan’s only female head prosecutor.

Ms Bashir has been lauded by both Michelle Obama and Hilary Clinton – and she was one of ten women to receive a ‘Women of Courage’ Award in Washington last year.

But Maria Bashir’s reputation is now in doubt after the Times revealed that Ms Bashir is also the most prolific prosecutor of women for Afghanistan’s so-called ‘moral’ crimes, such as adultery.

While Ms Bashir campaigns against abuse husbands, more than half of the 172 women jailed in Afghanistan for sex outside of marriage (known as ‘zina’) have come from her province.

Now, here is what Obama and Clinton said of Bashir…

When she received her award, the two presidential wives said: ‘Ms Bashir has waged a determined campaign against crime and corruption.

‘She stands out as a champion of judicial transparency and women’s rights, and exemplifies the resilience of Afghan women.’

Now, this administration can force Catholics to fund abortions.  They can criticism people that cling to their “guns and religion.”  But, they will honor a woman that send women to prison for cheating on their husbands?  Where are the Tammies?  Will they send seven women to protest this, and claim that there were 50,000?  Will Sandra Fluke flop again, or will the feminists just crawl back under the bus where they belong?

H/T:  Jammie Wearing Fools

  • Ms. Bashir would fit right in with America’s liberalmovement. Islam first. Women’s rights second.

  • So much for women’s rights. Instead Ms. Bashir bows down to the “religion of peace and tolerance”.
