Muslims Fight Sexual Harassment by Telling Women to Wear Hijabs


freebird

Apparently Malawi’s entire sexual harassment problem is caused by women not wearing Hijabs. It’s unclear then why Egypt has such high sexual harassment rates. Or Saudi Arabia where women are hardly allowed to leave the house or show their faces.

“While women of other faith groups are going through the pain of sexual violence due to improper dressing, it’s been observed that there are low cases of sexual violence among Muslim women,” Fatima Ndaila, National Chairperson of Muslim Women Organization (MWO), told OnIslam.net.

“It is rare for women who put on hijab to be sexually molested.”

Or rare for them to report it between the honor killings and the four witnesses. Also this kind of suggests that Muslims are doing most of the molesting.

“It is on the basis of this observation that we have intensified our fight against sexual violence by sensitizing Muslim women and girls to be putting on hijab while in public on in work places,” Ndaila said.

That doesn’t sound like much of a plan to fight sexual harassment unless it’s Muslim women doing the harassing. But the veil was innovated in Islam as a means to allow Mohammed’s followers to distinguish between women who belonged to a man and those who didn’t.

“But this is not the case with women who are not in hijab. The hijab has become an effective protective measure against sexual violence in Malawi, it is for this reason that we are advocating for its use as we fight sexual violence.”

“We have discovered that improper dressing among women has significantly contributed to the rising levels of sexual violence, because it attracts men.  It’s not easy to change people’s mindset,” she said.

This is what Muslim feminism looks like.

  • Liberty Now

    I cant imagine the slavery of both body and mind every waking moment of wearing the hijab. The pure evil of Islam is death while one is alive. What is wrong with people? Oh yes, they reject the true God!

    • Barbara Nelson

      I have news for you “Liberty Now”; women have had much the same problems under the “true God” as well. For much of Christian history and even in some cases today, the woman was/is blamed for any sexual violence against her. She “asked for it” by her dress, mannerisms, places she went. Look at how women were force to dress in the “Victorian Era.” Islam is evil, as is the “mindset” of Islamic men (and the women who support this); but it is not because they are not Christians, which was historically just as barbaric.

      • A Z

        In the Mid west where I am from, we did not have money to be hoity toity like you. I do not know what Victorian dress you are talking about. Our women homesteaded on their own. They pulled plows of necessity when the horse died. etc etc ad naseum.

        • Barbara Nelson

          I guess the point went over your head. BTW – My family were farmers in Indiana.

          • A Z

            Pictures & stories of the Victorian era of upper class mores and ways does not show the entirety of society.

            Try NYC where during Teddy Roosevelt’s time ethnic German immigrants would gather at the beer gardens to have a drink as a family outing.

            How is that possible in your conception of the Victorian Era? This was in a biography Teddy Roosevelt’s career.when he was a police commissioner is overlapped that of the Victorian era. So here are these women having a beer or two, so by feminist logic and what they say the mores of the day were, the women were asking for it. They were tipsy. You better rewrite the crime stats from that era.

          • Barbara Nelson

            Huh?

      • A Z

        So if we put you in a land on the border between Christianity and Islam,during the Victorian Era, you would flip a coin as to which way you went.

        Because it is all the same yuk, yuk, LULZ!

        • Barbara Nelson

            I bought and read the book “A Dark History: The Popes”. I don’t shy away from the facts about religion or anything.

            You appear to be a conservative or maybe more of a libertarian.

            Still you seemed infected with femo-N_zis thought. My aunts went to university long before Betty Freidan and all those bra burners.

            Look at the works of communist playwrights. Bertholt Brecht wrote the play “Mother Courage”. He got the archetypes correct and got everything else wrong. Brecht wrote it to portray had bad times were before communism Mother Courage was suppose to be the evil capitalist. She was the villain but the audience loved her. Aside from that what does the play show us. Bertholt did his historical research and lo and behold here is a woman on 17th century Europe and she has her own business, does not wear a HIJAB and does not need a male escort. Now tell me honestly if this is anything like Sharia Law?

          • Barbara Nelson

            You know nothing about me. Your willingness to call names, to try to label me shows me that you do not understand the purpose of my post; none of this has anything to do with communism, bra-burning, or exceptions to the rules of the times people lived in.

          • Drakken

            Let me educate you further, there is zero moral or cultural equivalence between Christians and muslims. We westerners enjoy everything we have today because of our innovative and superior western culture.

          • A Z

            I’ll take the Puritans over Sharia thank you very much.

            I’ll take the Inquisition Europe over Islam at the same time.

          • Barbara Nelson

            Well then, I am glad you are not in control of anything important.

          • A Z

            I did not say I was ion control of anything or wished to be.

            I said if I had a choice I would take door #1 instead of casting aspersion everywhere and calling everything equally bad.

            That is exactly what you did. You called everything equally bad. Or close enough that it did not really matter.

            So if it is a distinction without a difference then we should be the same as Islam if you believe in determinism.

            If you really into evolution and anti-religion then it gets very problematic to argue for free will.

            So again if we were just as bad as Islam how did we get better. If you are left with determinism the reason we are different is mere chance & not free will.

            How does an atheist account for free will?

          • Drakken

            You do realize that the Inquisition killed less than what the muslims did on 9/11 right?

            Shhhh! Don’t say that too loud! It contradicts the official narrative.

          • Barbara Nelson

            So the number killed rather than the reasoning is the important thing?

          • Drakken

            Say what you want about the Spanish, but they got rid of islam from the shores of Spain until recently.

          • A Z

            BTW I have a fascination with Witches. Some of that burning at the stake was at times no so much religious but the equivalent of calling someone a pedophile, having the authorities off them and getting there stuff.

            Of course 3 decades ago when I 1st read this I was very shocked because I thought it was purely religious hysteria. There case of an accusation of witchcraft against a grandmother or mother in Brandenburg (Berlin). It might as well been Romeo and Juliet. Two well off families were butting heads over status and commerce. Needless to say she did not burn. but an attempt was made to do in the mother to hurt the other family.

            Please read more.

          • Barbara Nelson

            It was more about fear of anything different (and of a loss of control). And much of the “difference” was caused by people consuming moldy rye bread (ergot) that caused the “witches” to act, speak, etc., in ways most people (“normal” by the standards of the day) did not understand

          • Barbara Nelson

            Please read more. Sorry – this will be my last post on this topic. I actually have a life.

          • A Z

            ergot & Toxoplasma gondii, etc etc.,

            and you totally ignored the Brandenburg case.

            Because we know there is always ever one cause.

            Calling someone a witch is no different than the power plays occurring right now for example in NYC where some developer wants to get someone’s stuff, land. So they call horse carriage rides unethical.

            Problem solves land taken move one.

          Have you heard of the Crusades?

          • Drakken

            Obviously as a liberal/progressive, you don’t know your history to save your life, so let me educate you. The Crusades were a result of muslim actions and aggressions in the holy land, the Crusades were called to action by Pope Urban II to RECLAIM the holy land from muslim invasion. Brutal as they were and to this day, it is the only thing the muslims fear and respect, so spare me the progressive/leftist narrative that the Crusades were bad, they weren’t, they keep the muslims out of Europe for a few hundred years, otherwise today you would be at some owners feet covered from head to toe in rags and living in a 4th world cesspit as a slave, thank your ancestors for having the foresight to fight the muslim scourge.

            Darn Drakken, you beat me to it.

          • Drakken

            Well I must admit, that you put it far more eloquently than I do. ;)

          • Barbara Nelson

            You are wrong. Both about Urban’s crusade call to wrest Jerusalem for Catholicism (this was not the first call to Crusade BTW), about the Byzantine Christians’ opposition, and about me. I am absolutely not a leftist (“liberal/progressive” as you call it) or a right wing statist (who are also progressives). But if it makes you feel better about yourself to call people names and label them, just like the leftists do, rather than stick to the facts, and you don’t mind sounding ignorant, be my guest.

          • Drakken

            In todays political atmosphere it is best to have a thicker skin. Sorry to say but your history is, how can I say this delicately, partially wrong, it just wasn’t to claim Jerusalem for Catholics, Urban knew the Islamic scourge was coming to Europe and knew then they had to stop it or they would be in the dark ages for a millennia. So I am happy to educate you, your welcome.

            You’re free to disagree any time. Naturally. But when you come in to a group with a dissenting view you should show a lot more respect before you pretend to present “the truth” above and beyond things we’ve discussed many times. We’ll all learn more that way if you slow down and hear what people are saying before you strike a pose of superiority.

          • ZZ

            You are wrong. All the Crusades were in response to islamic imperislism. Shove your rabid anti-Christian bigotry into the same place you have your head wedged. The only people who come close to being as evil as the islamopithecines are you atheists. You murdered st least 200 million people in the 20th century. If you had the power to wipe out Christianity, you would do it in a heart beat. Nobody smears you for being a nihilist, so don’t spew calumny about Christians.

          • Notalibfool

            The Crusades? When brave Christians from across Europe joined together to defend against invaders from the middle east? Yes, I have heard plenty about them.

            Of course some people who served in the Crusades were less than wonderful, but how much better were Mehmet the Conqueror’s soldiers when they pillaged, raped, and murdered Constantinople? How great were Mehmet’s descendents when they continued to steal land and destroy the native cultures of eastern European Christians?

        prove to me from the New Testament where women are allowed, or encouraged to be targeted sexually as you suggest, as I was not aware of any passages that allow violence, sexually or otherwise, in the commands of Jesus or His disciples

        • Barbara Nelson

          We are not talking about the Bible – and I find it interesting you limited the discussion to the new testament.

          • john spielman

            muslims get their moral values only from the koran and hadiths of Mohammed. The old Testament laws were superceded by the New Testament Gospel of Jesus,
            The Old Testament law WAS harsh but was only because God ruled the people directly from the Tent of Meeting and Moses confirmed the quilt and sentence of a transgressor of the law when he, Moses, met with God.in that Tabernacle. The harsh sentence is because God is Holy and does not tolerate sin in his presence. Read John 8;1-11, we now live in a time of grace while God is giving people a time to repent before the coming judgment. When God in Christ Jesus returns He will destroy all evil and evil doers and it will be a time like that of Mioses when God will rule with a “rod of iron”
            Islamic theolgy is evil because there is no grace but only a nefarious works righteous theology that allows even encourages violence against mern and women as way to show allah that one is worthy of paradise -that drunken brothel in the sky

      • CrazyAuntJane

        So because something happened in the Christian church in the past justifies the oppression of women today by the Muslims? Fortunately Christianity advanced and learned and Islam doesn’t seem to have done so! I’ve never understood the reasoning that justifies an action by something that was done in the past.
        WHERE OH WHERE are my sisters who fought so hard for equality back in the 60s and 70s??

        • Barbara Nelson

          Of course it doesn’t justify it. The point which has been lost by all the above replies was that the person who first posted here opined that Islamic atrocity was a result of their failure to believe in the “true God.”

          • ZZ

            Islamopithecines revel in savagery but people who believe in the true God do not. There has to be a correlation there. Arabs are degenerates no matter what faith they follow, but islamopithecines of all races and ethnicities are degenerates so islam is the key factor.

          • objectivefactsmatter

            It was a statement that you didn’t understand. You just assume that you did.

      • ZZ

        I have news for you: Christianity has never persecuted women the way islam does,and citing historical (and false) offenses to damn contemporary Chtistianity is false argumentation.

        Why are you atheists always so sophomoric and filled with hatred for a religion you don’t even believe in?

      • objectivefactsmatter

        “Look at how women were force to dress in the “Victorian Era.” Islam is evil, as is the “mindset” of Islamic men (and the women who support this); but it is not because they are not Christians, which was historically just as barbaric.”

        Just as barbaric according to popular Western history narratives.

        If you drill down deeper and look at the nuanced, objective historical accounts you see why we really don’t have to worry about Christians attacking witches, but you do have to worry about Muslims attacking witches, non-Muslims, unveiled women and so forth. That’s today. And tomorrow, and probably for some time in the future.

        Can you guess why?

    I have not read the book “At Day’s Close: Night in Times Past” by A. Roger Ekirch. But it is easier to point a person to this or a similar book than to a Discovery program that is a one or 2 hour special and very infrequently run and whose name I do not remember.

    In Dartmoor England people use to shut themselves in at night. The literally called it “shutting in”.The usual practice would be to walk to the neighbors and visit between 1st and 2nd sleep. Visiting neighbors has social utility & promotes social cohesion. All this was lost when robbers ruled the night and robbed and kiIIed people. Doors had to be quite stout. People lost their public space due to bad people.

    In Malawi women are losing their public space due to bad men.

    The same group that is advocating for hijabs could split into two cooperative groups and play good cop and bad cop. the bad cops harass the women. The good cops tell the women that the hijab will solve their problems.

    That is step 1.

    Step 2 is to get women to never venture out without a male escort who is related by blood.

    • A Z

      “Afraid of the Dark” series on the History Channel has an episode on Dartmoor segmented sleep visitng neighbors in etween 1st and 2nd sleep and how robber changed all that. People started shutting themselves in.

    I personally experienced MUCH more harrassment while wearing a hijab than when I didn’t, so the claim that it protects one from harrassment is bogus. Other women I’ve known have had similar experience. Here’s the kicker though: the vast majority of harrassers, with or without the hijab, were Muslim men. Hijab or lack of it had no particular effect on non-Muslim men; they were usually respectful regardless.
