Whenever I read about Turkey nowadays, and the problems they are having with electing a President, I keep reading about one thing.
The ruling party's candidate for President, Abdullah Gul, has a headscarf wearing wife.What the f*** has this to do with anything? She wears a hijab, doesn't wear a hijab, how does this affect his Presidency? Why is a woman's cloth given so much importance?
You know, it's all well and good to fight for the right to be not forcible hijabified, which is what they are now claiming Turkey's women are afraid of. But what about those women in Turkey, in France, in Germany, who want to wear the hijab and cannot? Who speaks for their lack of freedom?
On Desis in Canada:
The Toronto Star recently launched a magazine exclusively for South Asians in Toronto, called Desi Life. One of the people interviewed for one story was this blogger, and that article is here.
Beware of these hijabis
Also, I always believed it is sunnah to know how to defend yourself in a fight. Hail the Ninjabis.
