KHULA, KHULA, KHULA - I Divorce You, I Divorce You, I Divorce You - My Husband !!

Reader comment on item: The Deceits of Bridges TV
in response to reader comment: Muslim women have FULL right under Islamic Law to ask for a Divorce- it's called KHULA

Submitted by Rebecca (United Kingdom), Feb 27, 2009 at 15:54

Does the woman in Islam have the same right as a man - to say I Divorce You, three times and - the deed will be done !! - Clearly Aasiya was killed for asserting her individual rights under western law - Given that it is legal to do away with women all across the Islamic world - doesn't it look more like it is - the West that Loves Women - more than Islam does ~ Across the Islamic world women have little or no individual rights - perhaps Islam /Muslims are threatened by the event of women's rights and freedoms - which must look like a beacon of light to the oppressed and often down-trodden and forcibly illiterate Islamic woman ~ - How do you reconcile a Hillary Clinton (whatever we think of her politics) with an Islamic woman who is owned by the man ~ throughout her entire life?
