in response to reader comment: That personal choice

Submitted by fatima (Kuwait), Apr 13, 2008 at 03:37

Salam

first of all I would love to tell you that the mecca school story is not true .. I may be from kuwait but I know whats happening in KSA since its a nearby country , that mecca school story was a rumour spreaded by the western press and i think that serious action was taken by the government of saudia arabia when they heard that rumor .. i think the relations where at a stake between ksa and the country where the rumor started from ! there was a fire but the rest is fiction.. the fire department did its job and no one died cause they weren't covered !!!

in islam it is ok to be NAKED infront of a doctor if you need to be examined..you think a religion that allows that wouldn't allow that a fire man saves you from DEATH if you didn't cover your hair??! :s

Befor beleiving everything you read dude .. remember that ( the press , could be a fatal weapon ) . the muslim press tries to make the west look bad . and the western press trys to make muslims look bad.. I suggest that the reader don't believe things that make no sense !

as for Iran ..its sad but its true , in some areas only cause in other areas women can walk wearing mini skirts if they please ! Its hard for me to talk about the system in Iran cause I disagree with it .. I think Iran WAS a muslim nation back when the SHAH was president .. now its a nation where one man is imposing his power over land by using Islam as a cover.. if the iranians knew islam better you wouldn't see any of these disgraceful images on tv or wherever !

And you said in the west girls were killed by their parents for not covering their hair?? SPOOKY!! i mean.. i'm in a muslim country and %50 of girls here don't cover their hair and none was even yelled at!!

I assure you that ISLAM is a religion that would punish the crazy man and protect these girls. i don't think these men were sane .. cause there is nothing in islam that says ( kill the girl for not covering her hair!!) i mean.. its a religion dude not a crazy horror story!

actually , in islam . you shouldn't kill anyone.. specially your family! I mean.. you are not allowed to hurt her if she commits adultery when it comes to islam .. so JEFF , if a crazy man like the ones you were talking about or like osama's friend did something crazy .. don't blame it on islam .. cause in islam these ppl don't deserve to be called MUSLIM!
