Reader comment on item: Bridges TV, a Wife's Beheading, and Honor Murder
in response to reader comment: Stunted Emotional Development - The Religion of Peace' Gift to Mankind

To quote Rob W
" Even at weddings - the groom celebrates with his friends. The bride celebrates with hers. Separately. Even this most intimate occasion is an exercise in stunted social development. Middle Eastern men are basically big children - who just cannot tolerate any rejection from their peers - and an independent wife is a slap in the face to him. "

Let it be known that this Islamic influence where men and women are segregatted even in social functions has been in prevail since the Islamic Invasion of the Indian Subcontinent. Today this demotion of women is practised even in a relatively "Anglicized" country like India.

Ancient India rituals demanded that the women find their own husbands and no body had to cover their Head / face in front of strangers. The Radical islamization of Indian culture from 11th century AD to 18th Century has corrored and left a facade of it original ethos.
