Woman is but an object of lust in Islam

Shahid, what you say is all wrong. Islam stipulates that a woman who is raped, produces 4 male witness in court and if they deem that she was indeed raped, only then will the court acknowledge that. Otherwise, the woman will get lashes for having "defamed" a man for accusing him of rape. That is the kind of freedom women enjoy in Islam. The fact that women have been considered objects of desire and a booty in paradise awaiting Islamic champions, shows to which extent they have been demeaned and humiliated. Stop covering up and admit the shortcomings, Shahid.
