The End - 2000 to 2009

Suspected Al-Qaeda Member Dresses Like A Woman

Marouf Ould Haiba is one of four alleged al-Qaeda militants accused of shooting the tourists as they ate a picnic in south Mauritania in December.Fellow suspect Sidi Ould Sidna escaped from police in the capital, Nouakchott, as he was due to go on trial last week.

The getaway sparked a manhunt leading to two deadly shootouts in the city.

Mr Haiba is being questioned by police after being caught in the capital dressed in the black robes worn by some strict Muslim women that hide the entire body apart from the eyes.

“He was disguised as a woman and was carrying a weapon under his dress,” Hindou Mint Hainina, a government spokesman, told Reuters new agency.

“He had been trailed by the police for several days and is currently being questioned in Nouakchott’s central police station.”

Now that’s straight up wack. If your going to shoot four innocent tourists you should man up and don’t hide behind women’s clothing.  What if those tourists converted/reverted to Islam due to visiting the Muslim country?  SubhanAllah, this guy might have just killed potential Muslims!  He had to get paid to do this, because there is no way a Muslim brother would dress in women’s clothing for the sake of Allah to enjoin good and forbid evil.  No way!  Show me the money!

May Allah (swt) protect the innocent people and guide us all to the straight path. Ameen!

      The guy is probably fake, the story is probably fake, and they probably want people to FEAr women who are COVERED and try to advocate against the hijab through publicizing crappy news stories like this. Even if its true, publisizing a story like this just makes people find a justification for ranting against hijab.

      assalam ‘alaykum,

      Although I avoid news and think its half nonesense, I find it more disturbing that people will automatically throw news out. If it did happen, then we can’t condone it. And just from the point of view that it was made up – it’d be a dumb story to make up it really doesn’t seriously hurt Muslims, it was from those who are considered extreme by the mainstream. Wallahu a’lam.

      I remember one of my friends telling me that people tried to run her over a few times in niqab. SubhanAllah, not just once. I thought the typical sterotype was: men=terrorists. women=oppressed victims. So i was confused by that. I was like why would they want to run over someone they think is oppressed? I guess you really just have to be full of hate for islam. And that’s scary that in a place like NY, which we consider much more open minded than some of the other states, that MULTIPLE people would have such hate. And articles like these scare me more. People are going to look to niqaabis and say is there secretly an armed man under there? May Allah swt bless and protect those sisters. HasbunAllahu wa ni’mal wakeel.

      It makes no difference if he shot up potential Muslims.

      any one that targets non muslims is immedietly a Al-qaida suspect ??? it could have been any tom, dick and harry who was told to carry it out , the story sounds like a chinese whisper i would not believe half the garbage they read out on the news bullatin. Has any one also noticed how al-qaida operates on every country where terror activites take place ?

      Does it make a difference what clothing a murderer wears? Astaghfurallah!

      What if those tourists converted/reverted to Islam due to visiting the Muslim country? SubhanAllah, this guy might have just killed potential Muslims!

      Does it make any difference if the victims are Muslim or not? Aren’t we Muslims obligated to protect visitors to our lands? Would it have been OK if non-Muslims were murdered? Again – astaghfurallah! What kind of da’wah is this?

      He had to get paid to do this, because there is no way a Muslim brother would dress in women’s clothing for the sake of Allah to enjoin good and forbid evil.

      No way? There are Muslims who think they are doing the will of Allah when they blow themselves up in marketplaces – a far worse act than wearing women’s clothing. Or do you think every suicide bombing you read about is a faked story?

      You have a lot of great links to wonderful Muslim scholars on your sidebar. You should try reading them sometime.
