Multiculturalism requires all sorts of linguistic redefinitions. Like redefining the meaning of domestic violence.
Sheikh Omar Subedar of the Imam, Islamic Society of Peel in Canada, signed the White Ribbon pledge to: “never commit, condone or remain silent about violence against women and girls.”
But the White Ribbon folks should have explored his definition of “violence” a bit more closely.
At the Canadian Council of Muslim Theologians, the Imam writes, “Strike them: If the problem still does not get resolved then as a final resort Allah has permitted the husband to discipline his wife by striking her, however this does not imply that Allah is promoting domestic violence. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) has made it very clear that the beating should not be agonizing in any shape or form.”
I’m not sure that the Canadian authorities accept Sheikh Omar Subedar and Mohammed’s definition of domestic violence, but it’s probably only a matter of time until they do in the name of cultural sensitivity. And we’ll see Tumblr cartoons ridiculing white women for trying to “save” Muslim women from being beaten.
In addition to the Hijabis and Niqabis, we’ll have the Blackeyenis who will claim that they can be strong women and accept beatings at home. Because that’s their culture and religion.
And the Western lefties will smile stiffly and nod and make a bunch of TV shows about intolerant Westerners who discriminate against Muslims by arresting them for domestic violence.
