A teenage Muslim girl was stoned to death under 'Sharia law' after taking part in a beauty contest in Ukraine.As Jihad Watch notes, this kind of violence has its origins in the Koran's Sura 4:34, which tells that it's legitimate to employ violence against "disobedient" women.
Katya Koren, 19, was found dead in a village in the Crimea region near her home.
Friends said she liked wearing fashionable clothes and had come seventh in a beauty contest. Her battered body was buried in a forest and was found a week after she disappeared.
Police have opened a murder probe and are investigating claims that three Muslim youths killed her claiming her death was justified under Islam.
One of the three - named as 16-year-old Bihal Gaziev - is under arrest and told police she had 'violated the laws of Sharia'.
Gaziev said he had no regrets about her death because she had violated the laws of Islam.
For a sharp contrast, look at this case in Gedera (via Failed Messiah) where the principal of a religious school expelled a Jewish teenage girl for taking part in a beauty contest. While I think that was a stupid thing the principal did, making a mountain out of a molehill over exaggerated religious beliefs, neither he nor anybody else ever turned savage about it, and the girl is getting some help in countering the expulsion from the school.
