Somalia: MYM Decrees Islamic Punishment of Amputation on 4 Criminals in Mogadishu On 24 June a forum participant posted to a jihadist website a statement issued by the Mujahidin Youth Movement (MYM), entitled “MYM: Punishment for Banditry Carried Out Upon Four Youth Who Looted Muslims Money,” in which the group stated that their Islamic Court found four youth guilty of banditry and said they were to be punished accordingly because they looted people`s money in Mogadishu. The statement is attributed to the Sada Al-Jihad Media Center of the Global Islamic Media Front.
A translation of the statement follows:
“In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
“Banditry Punishment Carried Out Upon Four Youth Who Looted Muslims` Money Using the Threat of Weapons in Mogadishu
“Praise be to God, Lord of the World, prayers and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and all his companions.
“Almighty God said: `The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter`. (Koranic verse; Al-Ma`idah, 5:33).
“On Monday, 30 Jamadi al-Thani 1430, corresponding to 22 June 2009, the Islamic Court belonging to the Mujahidin Youth Movement (MYM) in the Islamic state of Banadir sentenced four youth with the banditry punishment. These youth used weapons against Muslims while looting neighborhoods. After following the incidents, Al-Hisbah Army was able to capture the criminals, and found their weapons and some of the items stolen from the vulnerable victims. After investigating the accused, they admitted to the crimes and pleaded guilty. The court sentenced them to the punishment for banditry, which is cutting off their hands and legs.
“The trial, which was held with strict security measures, was attended by a large number of Mogadishu residents and relatives of the defendants, in addition to senior officials from the movement. It is noted that Mogadishu was one of the areas most infested with highway bandits in broad daylight before the appearance of the mujahidin. Now, praise be to God, this phenomenon has started disappearing entirely, especially in the areas controlled by the mujahidin.
“O God, Revealer of the book, Disperser of the clouds, Defeater of the parties, defeat the Crusaders, and their apostate allies. O God, make them and their equipment easy booty for Muslims. O God, destroy them and shake them. O God, You are the one who helps us and the one who assists us, with Your power we move and by Your power we fight.
“God is Great.
“`But honor belongs to Allah, and thus to His Messenger, and to the Believers; but of this the hypocrites are not aware` (Partial Koranic verse; Al-Munafiqun 63:8).
