Samina Malik, author of some extremely good Islamic poetry (even though she's a woman...she must be a genius by female standards!), has been convicted under the 'Terrorism' Act.
So for a infidel woman to name a teddy bear after Mohammed (PBUH) is reasonable and doesn't require any punishment, but for a Muslima to be free to write poetry about martyrs and the beheading of infidels is unreasonable?!?
I see double standards here, and I'm sorry to mention it again, but this just goes to show how much Muslims are discriminated against in this country.
I'm 100% behind Samina here, although I think she's a little lax when it comes to hiding her feminine sexuality. The photo I saw of her displayed her wearing only a hijab. My personal feelings are: that a hijab is OK until around the age of puberty, when men are to be forgiven for being so sexually attracted to females that they just cannot control their lustful feelings. After this time, it just has to be the burqa - even the sight of naked female eyes can send Muslim males into a uncontrollable sexual frenzy (it does with me), although the nikab is perhaps permissable for old women who have wrinkly eyes anyway. Older females are both less likely to inflame male passions, AND more likely to need to see where they're going, which is my rationale for maybe being a little liberal when it comes to womens' clothing.
Samina, I respect you as much as I respect any woman but please try harder - not only would dressing in a burqa be far more seemly, but it would also have helped you evade capture in the first place. And that AS WELL as getting on a bus for free using someone else's bus pass or getting a driving licence easily by getting someone else in a burqa to stand in for you. Let's face it, that wouldn't be morally wrong - you wouldn't have to know how to do a 3-point turn, just how to set yourself on fire and drive into an airport building.
