Saad al-Hijri was suspended from all religious activity after advising against allowing women to drive in a speech that contained comments “diminishing human value”, the broadcaster quoted a spokesman for the governor of Asir province as saying.
Crap. He embarrassed the Soddies by stating their beliefs.
According to investigators, the suspect has been operating a school bus for the past five years and most recently he has been working for Stock Transportation – a bus company that covers both public and catholic boards across Canada.
A photo of the accused – identified as Richmond Hill resident Hamid Mohaghegh Montazeri – has been released as investigators are asking the public to come forward with any information they may have.
Prosecutors estimate up to 100 girls were cut during the 12-year conspiracy. So far, the indictment references six victims.
The 18-year-old is said to have killed his sister on Monday after getting into a heated argument with her because she had complained to her parents about not wanting to go to school.
Sheikh Saad al-Hajari, the head of the government’s religious edict authority in the southern province of Assir, recently made the comments at a lecture on “the evils of allowing women to drive”, Saudi daily Sabq reported on Wednesday.
Newcastle upon Tyne is a small city in the North-East of England which, in 2017, was acclaimed the best city in the UK in which to raise children (London was the worst). Imagine, then, the shock when the city again became national news on August 9 when a trial at the Crown Court ended in the conviction of 18 people for the sexual grooming of children. Juries “found the men guilty of a catalogue of nearly 100 offences – including rape, human trafficking, conspiracy to incite prostitution and drug supply – between 2011 and 2014.”
Ten Muslim immigrants suspected of serious rape, there of them are people among the ten who may not necessarily have been involved in the sex, but help instead.
In Britain, abusive practices against Muslim women are still undertaken by Sharia Councils with impunity. In the West, the supposed dangers of multiculturalism are still regarded as more important than human rights. All Britain would need to do is enforce its own laws.
A website serving Calgary Muslims has raised eyebrows by making a lengthy pitch for female circumcision, arguing the practice has “immense” value and blaming its poor reputation on Jewish-controlled media.
The provocative blog post by a foreign Islamic scholar drew strong rebukes this week from researchers and advocates concerned about female-genital mutilation, and from a major Jewish group.
It also resurrected questions about whether genital cutting of young women is taking place in Canada, despite being a crime punishable by up to 14 years in prison.
I broke this story last Month, and while I’m happy to see it get some play in the MSM the NatPo has given no credit to this blog.
Maybe I should be the one applying for a government subsidy.
Women in the West are increasingly being targeted by jihadists for persecution and murder, noted the British historian Gavin Mortimer in a recent piece in the Spectator. The radical Islamists are doing this, Mortimer said, “because in their minds [females] represent empowerment and enlightenment, and also immodesty.”
Women in Muslim-majority countries are all too familiar with this attitude. Subjected to the dictates of the strictest interpretation of Islam at the hands of their patriarchal societies, they live as second-class citizens across the Middle East. Those who dare to go against the grain in any fashion — even by belonging to another religion — meet cruel fates.
When 35-year-old Maysaloun Hamoud, a Palestinian director, said she wanted to “stir things up” with her movies – she achieved it.
Her first feature film, In Between, has resulted with her being issued with a fatwa (Islamic religious ruling), as well as death threats.
The movie, which is released in the UK this month, is about three young Arab women sharing an apartment in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.
Away from the traditions of their families, they find themselves “in between” the free lives they’re aspiring to lead and the restrictions still imposed on them.
Girls as young as five are allowed to wear hijabs as part of approved primary school uniforms, it has been revealed.
This is despite the fact a hijab is usually only worn by young women after puberty and in front of men for modesty reasons – not by primary school children.
Campaigners have said it should be ‘fiercely resisted’ and claimed it could ‘sexualise’ young children.
On Feb. 6, 1935, Turkish women were allowed to vote in national elections for the first time, and eighteen female candidates were elected to parliament – a decade or more before women even in Western countries such as France, Italy and Belgium. Eight decades later, Turkish women look like unwilling passengers on H.G. Wells’ Time Machine traveling back to their great-grandmothers’ Ottoman lives.
Turkey’s strongman, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, once proudly said that “Women should know their place,” and that “Gender equality is against human nature”. His deputy prime minister said that women not to laugh in public. It was not shocking to anyone when Turkey’s Ministry of Family and Social Policies found in 2016 that no fewer than 86% of Turkish women have suffered physical or psychological violence at the hands of their partners or family. According to the ministry’s findings, physical violence is the most common form of abuse: 70% of women reported they have been physically assaulted.
Sibel Kekilli, the Turkish-German actress famous for her role as Shea in Game of Thrones, hid her Instagram profile earlier this month after suffering harassment from Turkish Muslims.
Associate Professor Elham Manea, a Swiss-Yemeni citizen and the author of Women and Sharia Law, argues it is naïve — even racist — to regard the wearing of a burka as a sincere act of faith.
“The burka is not Islamic,” she told the Religion and Ethics Report.
“It’s a tradition that comes from the heart of Saudi Arabia, a region called Nejd.”
Dr Manea says the veiled garment was not worn by women outside of Nejd until Saudi Arabia’s Wahabi regime came to power in the late 1970s.
“The re-Islamisation of Saudi Arabia according to the Wahabi Salafi fundamentalist principles led to the mainstreaming of the burka,” she said.
