Reader comment on item: The Burqa Wars

Submitted by Phil Greend (Canada), May 3, 2010 at 03:46

In the koran the "prophet mohammed" said that most of the people in hell were women.

Horrible treatment of women by the prophet mohammed was common. He stated that men could have sex with their wives, even if the women did not wish to i.e. rape. Women were to be banished to their beds if they did not obey their husbands. He had sex with a 9 year old child when he was 53, he owned black slaves and forced them to have sex with him, so once again the "prophet mohammed raped women.

The muslims love their prophet and see him as an example to follow. The prophet mohammed's book continuously speaks harshly of women and sets extreme rules to be obeyed.

Today in 2010 in the islamic culture women are treated awfully i.e. honour killings, sexual assaults and forced marriages.

The burqa is a symbol of this lower statues of women in islam.

Therefore banning the burqa is important and is going to be an uphill battle.
