MOGADISHU — Mogadishu’s new rulers, the Union of Islamic Courts, have promised to implement Islamic Sharia law and vowed to kill anyone failing to perform daily Salaad prayers.
Mogadishu’s Shabelle Media Network Radio reported on Wednesday that the Union of Islamic Courts intended to implement Sharia law throughout the country and particularly in Mogadishu, which they captured last month.
One of the Union of Islamic Courts’ founders is Sheikh Abdullah Ali. Ali said during a speech at the opening ceremony of an Islamic Sharia law court in Mogadishu’s Gubta neighborhood that “when people accept practicing Islamic Sharia law everybody will enjoy life based on peace and prosperity.”
Ali also promised that the Union of Islamic Courts will kill anybody that fails to practice Salaad, commenting, “He who does not perform prayer will be considered as infidel and our Sharia law orders that person to be killed. The Sharia law orders the killing of any Muslim person when he fails to perform prayer.” [source]
I think these rulers should be killed for whatever it was they were smoking when they came up with this. I can hear them hacking away at the pillars of Islam.
