    Imbecilic! Trying to justify something that is wrong with something else that is wrong is as moronic as I can think of.

    Except you didn't show 'how remote' it is at all just went for the 'So what'

    but do explain 'how remote' it is if that's your argument rather than 'So what'

    Lool. So complaining on an internet fourm is doing something well done my friend ! I see a nobel prize coming your way
    Yes it is.
    It may not have much of an individual effect, but at least making a statement of opposition is, well, making a statement of opposition.

    Surely that is more constructive than saying "It doesn't affect me, so I will ignore it".

    "The journey of 1000 miles starts with one small voice", or something like that.

    A) Old news
    B) The MCB themselves have denounced it
    C) Even if someone somewhere has said that Muslim women can't do x , honestly? It's not going to stop them.

    Its a non story and tbh it just shows what the Telegraph has now become - a once worthy newspaper that has fallen from grace. Honestly, I expect better from.the Telegraph

    1 agree

    2 what have the mcb got to do with the. Most Muslims in britian don't seem to view the mcb as representing them so it's sort of like having the eu condemn something on the behalf of britian. A significant number don't think it represents them so any such condemn nation is a bit iffy. Probably better to list multiple organisations critising it. Truth be told with any religious groups it's hard to find effective representation when it comes to specific social issue. I know a tonne of Catholics that don't agree with the Catholic Church on a multitude of specific issue (though general ones they commonly do).

    3 in britian maybe (though again I know several Muslim women who face just a tonne of social pressure to behave in certain ways which are common with the opinion of Nawadir. And in nations which try to base p/claim to base their laws on Islam then yes it very much does stop them.

    It pretty much is a non story. It's getting pretty common knowledge now that big sections of the Muslim community in britian hold values that clash with those generally held. It's a bit like all the deaths by terrorism world wide, the vast majority don't get mentioned but most adults know they are happening just not the specifics.

    Yeah but nothing serious is done, talking about it on here will not raise a voice in human rights court or parliment will it ?
    Hmm..

    You think muslims in the UK are at risk of death if they stop following Islam ?
    Some may be. And Muslims elsewhere in the world definitely are at risk.
    Do you not read the news at all?

    as I explained to you, its a very remote possibility and not something that justifies the response by the media we have seen by a few muslims in blackburn
    I dan only assume that you consider the suffering of people outside the UK as someone else's problem.

    Nice.

    If a Muslim (or anyone else) asserts that the suffering of people outside their sphere of experience is something to be ignored, then bashed they shall be!

    And rightly so!

    This is about the right wing media in thr UK whipping up hatred

    Not other countries. Yes suffering in other countries is the internal affairs of other countries

    You just want a excuse to bash muslims on the basis of what blackburn muslim community group advised married women against traveling long distances alone

    So the remoteness of an event has no bearing on how horrific it can be, it does not matter if some ******** shoots up his school because there are an infinite number of possibilities.(?)

    To be honest you should think before you even use your finger.

    So you are defending the idea that it is OK to have that belief solely on the principle that the BMCG is just a minority of 1.5 billion Muslims, the advice is wrong but it can be forgiven as it is a minority view, so the majority outranks the prophet.

    I'm glad that you have never expressed a political opinion without immediately going and acting it (otherwise you would be being hypocritical). Actually no, I'm not glad, it's sad for someone to be that politically disengaged. I especially hope you didn't vote today -- there's virtually no chance you'd have changed anything.
    Oh shut up, stop moaning, talking politics now are we ? All I was saying is nothing can be done on here, only a slight awareness. Listen I have a right to vote who I like.

    It is doing something

    It is highlighting the stupidity of such opinions and making sure that those who would support such idiocy are not going to get their own way without a fight.

    It also lets lots of people know and discuss that such idiocy exists in some communities(as in the case here)

    There will also be some ridicule and mockery of the ideas that generate such stupidity as well which is always a good thing.
    The thoughts of an idealist I imagine.
    People don't change their opinions unless they're willing to, putting up a fight means nothing unless its on a public forum, i.e. there are other viewers, which I very much doubt there are in this forum as viewers usually just read the main post and don't bother with the comments beyond page 1, or its in parliament, other than that, all internet arguments mean sod all.

    At least we are letting them know there are other opinions to be had.

    Just think if this hadn't been publicised you may have women in this community accepting this bollox as the truth

    At least now they know it isn't true at all.
