”She writes that Muslim women should burn their burqas, that women should be treated as equals, and that religion should have no place in law or government…”
A poem by dissident writer, Taslima Nasreen ;
Nature says women are human beings, men have made religions to deny it.
Nature says women are human beings, men cry out NO!
Women are oppressed in the east, in the west, in the south, in the north.
Women are oppressed inside, outside home.
Whether a woman is a believer or a non-believer, she is oppressed.
Beautiful or ugly, oppressed.
Crippled or not, rich or poor, literate or illiterate, oppressed.
Covered or naked, she is oppressed.
Dumb or not, cowardly or courageous, she is always oppressed.
Even a mangy cur of the house barks now and then, but over the mouths of women cheaply hadthere’s a lock, a golden lock.’
The president of northern India’s All India Ibtehad Council is having none of it, and has already placed a 500,000 rupee (U.S. $11,319) bounty on the brave dissident’s head. Cleric Tauqeer Raza Khan:
”She should be killed and beheaded and anyone who does this will get a reward from the council,” declared cleric Tauqeer Raza Khan, because Nasreen made ”derogatory references against Prophet Mohammed in her writings.” ”Anyone who opposes the Prophet does not deserve to live,”
And the streets of the Islamic world will soon be overflowing with “modernist” Muslims –especially in the West– in support of Nasreen, with demands for the radical cleric to rescind his fatwah? Ehhh, I’ll believe it when I see it. *L* KGS
