    he sounds like a bit of a control freak. coming from a muslim background this kind of thing tends to be very fear based. fear of you realizing that you don't believe in it. its less to do with what is best for you and more to do with what makes them feel the most comfortable. a Muslim girl with a boyfriend is seen as embarrassing to her parents, same with drinking or wearing what you want. its a fear of losing control of your direction in life. in my experience living your life to please your overbearing parent leads to resentment.
