NOBLE PROPHETS AND DIVINE MESSENGERS OF GOD PREACH EQUALITY OF SEXES AND RESPECT TO WOMEN.
BUT IN ISLAM WOMEN ARE TREATED AS THE PROPERTY OF MEN, TO BE KEPT IN CHECK, OUT OF SIGHT AND INDOORS.
ONE NEEDS TO SPARE A THOUGHT FOR THE HINDU WOMEN IN INDIA DURING THOSE LONG AND DARK CENTURIES OF SLAVERY UNDER ISLAM.
THERE IS NO RECORD OF THE NUMBER WHO KILLED THEMSELVES TO ESCAPE CAPTURE, ABDUCTION AND RAPE BY THE ILL-MANNERED SAVAGE MOHAMMEDANS BUT THE NUMBER COULD RUN INTO THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS. HUNDREDS OF HELPLESS HINDU WOMEN COMMITTED SUICIDE IN 1947 ALONE, WHEN THE INDIAN MUSLIMS DECLARED CIVIL WAR AND INFLICTED THE MOST CRUSHING DEFEAT ON THE HINDUS, FORCING THEM TO SURRENDER ONE THIRD OF THE COUNTRY UNCONDITIONALLY.
HERE IS THE NEWS ITEM THAT SHOWS THE "FREEDOMS" OF WOMEN IN THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC OF IRAN.
IT IS A GREAT SHAME THAT THE WESTERN EDUCATED AND ARTICULATE MUSLIM WOMEN WHO ENJOY FREEDOMS DENIED TO THEM IN ANY ISLAMIC REPUBLIC, STILL PRAISE ISLAM WHEN QUESTIONED BY THE MEDIA. YET NOT ONE OF THEM IS PREPARED TO LIVE IN AN ISLAMIC REPUBLIC TO "ENJOY" LIFE UNDER DREADFULLY PRIMITIVE ISLAM.

........Iranian women burn to death in protest
FIVE young Iranian women from villages near the southern city of Shiraz burnt themselves to death last week because their families refused to let them go out to work.
The five, aged between 14 and 23, died in hospital after setting themselves alight, according to the conservative newspaper “Jamhoury-e-Eslami” which yesterday quoted a social worker as saying the young women were suffering from cultural and economic deprivation.
Iranian women in smaller towns and villages where traditional social and religious customs are stronger enjoy less freedom than their sisters in the larger cities.
Half the population is aged under 30, putting cultural and religious restrictions under severe pressure. AFP.
