Seriously Mansoor, have you read the Koran carefully or do you turn a blind eye to what it says about women? Read:

4:15 As for those of your women who are guilty of lewdness, call to witness four of you against them. And if they testify then confine them to the houses until DEATH TAKE THEM or Allah appoint….

4:16 If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, leave them alone.

Is this aya on women's lewdness toothless as it has some context which makes it inoperative in today's context? Let us know your opinion Mansoor. And why are men exempted from such a harsh punishment in this life according to 4:16?

4:20 And if ye wish to exchange one wife for another and ye have given unto one of them a sum of money….

Are women some kind of cheap commodity you get rid of when you fancy another? Your Allah seems to think so.

4:34 (Pikthal)Men are in charge of women, because Allah has made one of them to excel the other…..as for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and SCOURGE them.

Some translators of the Koran are so ashamed of this verse that they put words into Allah's mouth by adding, lightly. Modern commentators are hilarious. They say beat women with a toothpick or toothbrush. ROTFL.

>>But in west, the women is more like a toy or a tissue paper of toilet. You use and throw and never look back...isn't this the liberty you are talking about.<<

Really? Then why aren't Western women lining up in front of Pakistan's embassies to be mollycoddled by gentle Pakistani men. How many Western women who visit Pakistan (or any Muslim country for that matter) are staying back in your paradise for women? Nobody stops any Western woman from travelling anywhere. Why do Western women prefer to be used toilet paper in the west rather than houris in Pakistan? Difficult question to answer Mansoor? Let me help. The stink that comes from the Islamic paradises is worse than that of the bottoms of Western men.

>>You know Islam honours Mothers as most respected and most important part of the family. She has been given noble responsibility to raise children, see domestic matters and ensure the well being of the family.<<

Islam allows divorced women to nurture their children but when they are six or seven she loses her rights over them and the man takes them away from her. Yes she gets the noble responsibility of raising them but is denied legal rights over them.

>> West has no respect for the females. In schools, colleges and work place, women are subjected to sexual harrasment and disgrace.<<

How many women are allowed to work or go to school and college in Muslim countries. In fully Islamic countries like Afghanistan and even Saudi Arabia women hardly ever get to see strange men so how can you comapare the two societies. Women in these countries get brutalised and harassed by their own menfolk.

>> I must say that no religion can guarantee women's respect as Islam does. You cannot say anything wrong about Islam and rights of Women until you read the teachings without a biased approach.<<

Read 4:15, 4:20 and 4:34 once again with care and WITHOUT BIAS, Mansoor.
