Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

Dr Taj Hargey, Imam, Oxford Islamic Congregation, tells The Times

“Sir, Boris Johnson should not apologise for telling the truth. His evocative analogy is unfortunate but he is justified in reminding everyone that the Wahhabi/Salafi-inspired fad of female facial masking has no Koranic legitimacy. It is, however, a nefarious component of a trendy gateway theology for religious extremism and militant Islam.

The burka and niqab are hideous tribal ninja-like garments that are pre-Islamic, non-Koranic and therefore un-Muslim. Although this deliberate identity-concealing contraption is banned at the Kaaba in Mecca it is permitted in Britain, thus precipitating security risks, accelerating vitamin D deficiency, endorsing gender-inequality and inhibiting community cohesion.

The retrogressive Islamic clergy has succeeded in persuading ill-informed Muslims through suspect secondary sources that God wants women to cover their faces, when in reality it is a toxic patriarchy controlling women. Is it any wonder that many younger women have internalised this poisonous chauvinism by asserting that it is their human right to hide their faces? Johnson did not go far enough. If Britain is to become a fully integrated society then it is incumbent that cultural practices, personal preferences and communal customs that aggravate social division should be firmly resisted. For this reason Britain must emulate France, Belgium, Austria, Bulgaria and Denmark in banning the burka.”

Countries where the burka is banned.



I think the above map is out of date/inaccurate as I understand that both Denmark and Morocco have now gone ahead and banned it too.

Also Turkey has a ban on women covering all of their face, but is not indicated on the map.

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

Following the uproar caused by the comments of Boris Johnson, Cressida Dick has been asked to investigate whether Prince Philip has broken the law and committed a hate crime by making a number of historic comments. These include, but not confined to, the following:

"And what exotic part of the world do you come from?" he asked British politician John Taylor in 1999. Taylor's parents were from Jamaica.

"If you stay here much longer, you’ll go home with slitty eyes," he told a British student in China in 1986.

"Do you still throw spears at each other?" he asked Australian aboriginal leader William Brin in 2002.

To Scottish driving instructor, 1995: “How do you keep the natives off the booze long enough to pass the test?”

The Burqa discussed on Question Time 2013: The VT will start at 6 minutes something but can be scrolled back to hear it from the original question.

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

Lots of talk about Hypocrisy... I find it hard to hear/see some of the biggest hypocrites getting so much air time whilst their own doings & sayings are Nothing to aspire to or emulate!

Man who tried to marry another woman whilst still legally married in UK, then dumps girlfriend on eve of wedding. He eventually married another much younger woman (young enough to be almost his granddaughter)...…. after his wife finally divorced him!

Made a peer of the realm by Michael Howard after becoming a member of the tory party after just 2 years service!!! One wonders just what miracles did this pillar of society (not) achieve which made him eligible for such an honour?

"‘Why are you so intolerant?’ Nick Ferrari clashes with Tory peer over Boris Johnson row"

https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/10...affic.outbrain

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mohame...,_Baron_Sheikh

"A friend in London who knows her well and in whom she has confided, told The Mail on Sunday that although she was given a weekly allowance of £1,000, she eventually became tired of living at Lord Sheikh’s flat in secrecy and in August 2012 she left for Samarkand, the city in Uzbekistan where her family live.

Lord Sheikh followed her there, checking into a local hotel, said the friend. Then he visited her family, who run a ceramics business in the city.
He also asked the woman’s father for her hand in marriage, offering one kilogram of gold – worth around £30,000 – as her dowry.
Sources close to Lord Sheikh say that he has admitted going to Uzbekistan to ask for the waitress’s hand, but dismiss claims he ever offered a kilo of gold."

Cameron's top Muslim peer, 72, his bewitching waitress 45 years his junior... and the toxic romance that's enraged his wife | Daily Mail Online

Whilst I don't personally 'like' the language Boris used, there are Many forms of rhetoric I find much more objectionable & insulting. I too think that Bojo's 'words', are being used as a political tool against him by the usual hypocritical suspects, for their own gains.

Doesn't mean that he loves the mothers. On the contrary it shows a contempt for them.

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

So the burka is nothing more than an object to stop men lusting after a women? Well if nothing else its a sure shot way to get rid of wolf whistling.

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

No, it's designed to blame women who don't wear them for inciting lustful thoughts in men.
As if the poor pathetic creatures can't control their own thoughts, even though God gave them a brain. . .

Re: UK Dancing on Religious Eggshells

Islamaphobia has spread to... Morocco (99% Muslim).

A well balanced article on the subject is here:

https://theconversation.com/why-moro...-measure-72120

There is very, very, strong evidence to suggest that the Burka (or Niqab) has nothing to do with Islam, but has everything to do with our friend and great ally, Saudi Arabia. *sigh*

So yet again, this is where the real hypocrisy lies and explains why they (the establishment) are trying to shut down this issue- to stop people making this connection.

Assuming that BJ knows all this, then this is where the true hypocrisy of him and the government lies.
