Iman MuhannaThree months ago today, on December 17th, 2004, Iman Muhanna, a six month pregnant Muslim woman was found murdered in her home in New Orleans, LA. She was stabbed 33 times, no one has been apprehended.
So far, very little attention has been given to this case: a Technorarti search results in only four (4) blog entries. On the other hand, a similar search on the Amina Wadud controversy results in 96 such entries. The Living Tradition blog correctly points out that, while we argue over Wadud, significant concerns get sidelined in all of the hoopla.
From the Muslim American Society's website:
Iman was a mother of two children and a teacher at the Muslim Academy in New Orleans. She was greatly loved by her family and the Muslim community, whom she had served faithfully. She is a sister-in-law of the renowned Palestinian activist Dr. Abdulhaleem Al-Ashqar.
The MAS has begun a nationwide campaign, and is calling for assistance from the public and the media.
