Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: The reasons why Fatou is here and the controversial respect topic

Yes, I know this mentality very well. It is as you said fear based. I used to hang around Bangladeshi girls back at school and they were very mean even to fellow Muslimahs that happened to wear make up, or be a bit outspoken. Yet at the same time, there was an element of envy, and longing to possess the same level of freedom. It must surely be difficult to be an obedient, God fearing woman while your man is out doing the twirl with the exact same women that he claims to despise.

Anyway. I've said my piece. My point was that we shouldn't be pointing fingers at other women, as we are all victims to a degree.

I enjoy your posts too! :-)
