What a stupid country.

Come to think of it, that would have been an appropriate comment on yesterday's post about Pakistan's blasphemy law. I wonder what the two countries have in common.

As the Fatwa is a religious ruling, and as such crosses boundaries, are not the Islamic women now working at supermarkets and other premises in the UK and elsewhere, where interaction with 'unrelated men' exists, now banned from such positions?

At what point does their acceptance/rejection of ruling practices lay? There has and is in the West, still a considerable dislike of the face veil worn in public and the various reasons given for it. Will those women with Islam as a faith now remove themselves from their alloted tasks, just as those who choose to, continue to wear a veil? Or are we about to see double standards. Perish the thought.
