Roohid Shaik.

All you point to is theory , I could say immediately women are always separated from men in mosques, they even have their own entrances, this is apartheid. Yes I know you'll reply saying it would be a distraction for the men if they prayed with you, how childish this is, that men only see women as sex objects. Maybe its time muslims sat on chairs to pray,that would eliminate the problem for you if you can't control your thoughts.

Why when we see photos of thousands of men on our screens there's not a woman in sight, at a funeral recently in England there were thousands of men... not a woman in sight.

Yesterday I saw TV pictures of the earthquake in Turkey, the men were queueing for aid ...not a woman in sight. This is your culture, it's wrong ,unfair & insulting for women to be hidden behind cloth & walls.

Muslim men do not take their women out & about on equal terms like non muslim men.

Muslim women are forced to wear Islamic dress, muslim men are not.

This is all shameful & against our equality laws. Time for Islam in the to grow up, come into the modern world & free women, giving them full & equal rights.

Please don't lecture me on the Koran, I know the Koran.
