Father guilty over ritual beating

A taxi driver has been convicted of cruelty for encouraging his 10-year-old son to whip himself during a Shia Muslim ceremony.

The boy took part in zanjeer matam, in which believers beat themselves with a wooden implement with chains and blades attached to it.

His father, 47, who also took part in the ritual at a Birmingham mosque, said he acted out of "love" and "devotion".

He was given a six-month suspended sentence at Huntingdon Crown Court.

The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had denied being cruel to a child.

It's a difficult one this. The parents obviously believe they are doing nothing wrong but are following a set of rules and regulations that they are taught are correct. I'm not in any way condoning what has happened, but these things will happen whenever people get brainwashed.

LOL. I am not Muslim - far from it! I am simply saying that people get duped into believing foolish ideas and ways to conduct their lives. It is difficult for such people to see sense, even when irrefutable evidence is placed before them.
Few Muslims would condone such wicked practices anyway.

Can I just say that this kind of ritual has nothing to do with being a Muslim as in following the religion as the Prophet Muhammed PBUH did. This is some next 'twisted' up Islam the Shia's practice. It is forbidden for a person to inflict harm upon themselves in Islam.

Thanks, I just don't want peeps thinking that Muslims generally do this kind of nonsense
