  • I hate to say it but it is not a peaceful religion. Have you ever heard of suicide bombers? They do it the name of their muslim religion think about that.

  • I heard it from another mom who is not muslim.

    What type of punishment do you face? What if a child reaches puberty and then decides not to wear it? Does a girl who has reached puberty have the choice to be muslim?

  • The person you are quoting OP never said children in general she said people. I don't agree with her but at least quote it right.

  • You probably read about women here in America that choose to wear the scarves. Here we have religious freedom... other places in the world, they do not. Young girls are married off upon "becoming a woman" and are forced to wear them. They have no other options. There are many women and girls in this world that are afraid for their lives DAILY- of all faiths. We do not realize how good we have it here- even when we have it rough, it often pales in comparison to what it could be.

  • Fay101, those are called "extremists". They don't follow the actual teachings because, sadly, they are so uneducated that they rely on others (religious leaders) to be read and given THEIR interpretations of the Koran. And unfortunately, those people in charge twist the words to mean what they want it to mean. And unfortunately, those people can't read it for themselves and know the truth of what that text says and really means.

  • Referring to my post want proof here you go.

    While some women wholeheartedly embrace the rules, others protest by observing the rules in slipshod or inconsistent fashion, or flouting them whenever possible. Sudan's criminal code allows the flogging or fining of anyone who “violates public morality or wears indecent clothing”, albeit without defining "indecent clothing",

  • Just like if a muslim woman goes outside and shows off any skin, even a bare hand she has a chance of being killed. (only in certain countries)

  • The person you are quoting OP never said children in general she said people. I don't agree with her but at least quote it right We were talking about kids in school. BUT I did ask about post puberty as well just to be fair.
