I wrote a fairly large post taking on A Voice for Men’s Girl Who Writes and her stance that excused and lauded the behaviour of Islam within Afghanistan. In her video she made the claim that Islam treated women (in the Koran) better than other places.
And I responded with “Is that so? Then all the statistics are false because the 1400 year old book says so. Good Game Well Played! Going Home.
Reality has a well known Avi bias.
Rafiqul Islam, 30, blindfolded his wife Hawa Akhter, 21, and taped her mouth, telling her he was going to give her a surprise present.
Instead he made her hold out her hand and cut off all five fingers. One of his relatives then threw Ms Akhter’s fingers in the dustbin to ensure doctors could not reattach them.
This is not just a premeditated crime but a complicit crime where the family of Mr. Islam are complicit and knew what was going to happen.
Mr. Islam who works in the UAE did this because his wife was “disobedient”. She repeatedly refused to listen to him.
Because she was getting herself educated. She refused to stop studying for “him”.
He has been arrested and faces imprisonment for disfigurement in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
So why would he do such a thing? Well…
Jealousy. He couldn’t stand that his wife was better educated that he was. He had a grade 8 education, she was going to college. After all? How can one be the “Head” of the family if the woman out earns you. I fear your testicles will shrivel up and escape and your penis will invert while you rapidly turn into a woman.
This isn’t the only such case. Earlier last month a woman had her eyes gouged out by her husband for the same reason. She was aan assistant professor and he was unemployed.
I am sure GWW and AVfM would say that these women would not have been tortured and maimed and disfigured had they stayed at home and made chappathis (or pancakes) but I fear that’s because AVfM and GWW are terrible people.
But the problem with education is that people want it. Ms. Akhter is learning to write left handed so that she may resume her education.
I wonder what clothes she should have worn to stop this? Flapper Skirts and a Mumu probably.
