Is epilation Haram? That is the question

You might have thought Iran had enough things to worry about what with sanctions and a planned nuclear deal. But no. The big issue now is banning female epilation!

It may seem that the current nuclear negotiations, saving Iran’s collapsing economy or removing sanctions are the most pressing issues that the authorities or the people in Iran should be concerned about. But such an assumption does not apply to everyone in Iran.

A huge controversy started in the Iranian town of Qazvin last week, after a group calling themselves “Social and Cultural Activists of Qazvin Province” published a letter, condemning the practice of epilation, openly advertised in the hair salons.

    That one of the funny things about Islam.
    They feel the need for rulings on EVERYTHING!

    Does any other religion navel-gaze to this extent?
    Who out there has picked up a shaving razor, epilator, whatever and wondered if this device, if used, might forsake them to Christ forever?

    Islam will forever be chasing its own tail trying harder and harder to hit “perfect”. Since this kind of stuff has no answer either way, the Muslims always rush toward the most insane and restrictive interpretation that they can make up, as not to risk some other sect denouncing them as less pure than they should be.
    This is why Islam keeps breeding groups like the Taliban, ISIS, and scores of terrorist organizations, other assorted nut jobs and this is precisely why they always will and why they are utterly irreformable.

      More proof that feminists are closet muslims.

    I had to look Google a definition for “epilation”.

    Nobody is going to see those shaggy legs under the freedom sacks anyway, so it doesn’t really make any difference.

    • This is true.

      Remember, Uncle Waspy, you bigoted racist, it’s a woman’s right to “choose” her freedom sack! *sarc*

    Muslims like it better when their women look like boys, or goats.

  • Many of their women have mustaches, let alone hairy legs. I guess they like their women hairy. Atavism?

      And I guess they like that one eyebrow that so many of their women and men grow.

      Those dirtbags even have rulings for facial hair removal on WOMEN!
