Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Things that happen in males parties and when nobody is watching

The Bacha Bazi of Afghanistan and the Sigheh temporary wives of Iran. Yep, the victims of these appalling acts are Muslim. Where do the women stand in these scenarios?

I genuinely dislike making sweeping statements as I have, but this is reality and I wish it weren't. These are all events that I've witnessed. I have nothing against Muslim women, I generally find them to be more dedicated to serving God than their male counterparts. But the ignorance is mind numbing. It's like the wife versus mistress argument: that the man always comes back home to his wife at the end of the day.
