Uncomfortable Feelings ....

Reader comment on item: Shoeless George Bush

Submitted by Mohammed Amin (United States), Jul 3, 2007 at 15:13

You know as a Muslim I have never liked female politicians wearing Hijab when visting either Muslim countries or Muslim centre within West (forced or other wise). Hijab is religious garment worn for religious reasons and a highly controversial issue among Muslims or Non Muslims.

Stuff like this never shows solidiarty given the situation, and is counter-productive. It just raises negative aspects of inter-religous relations.

Although that is not saying you cannot celebrate other religions without compromising you faith and belief (or the lack of it) but it has to be non-political, un-biased and sincere.

Personally I like a tree up in christmas and presents underneath ....... then again with my big beard I reckon I am a shoo-in for a Muslim Santa...... :-)
