“Are you a Muslim? Your website photo doesn’t really show that you are.”

“A few days ago I received a call from a producer at BBC World Service asking if I knew of a Muslim woman who would comment on a news story about the bikini being banned at the Miss World pageant in Indonesia. I promptly responded that I would and the producer asked me some questions which I answered (I think) quite intelligently; she said she was very impressed.

Then she asked, “Are you a Muslim? Your website photo doesn’t really show that you are.”
