Repeal Islam’s scarlet-letter sex laws

June 15

Asra Q. Nomani a former Wall Street Journal reporter, is the author of “Standing Alone: An American Woman’s Struggle for the Soul of Islam.” She is co-founder of the Muslim Reform Movement.

The massacre of partygoers at Pulse, a gay club in Orlando, took me back to the late summer of 2005, when an African American woman, wearing a tight headscarf over her staff uniform, stormed out of the kitchen and into a conference room at an Atlanta Holiday Inn, shouting: “You’re all going to burn in hell!”

I froze. Around me were about 50 brave souls from Al-Fatiha, a gay American Muslim organization, many of them young men secretly at the organization’s annual conference while their parents attended a meeting of the conservative Islamic Society of North America. That weekend, I prayed shoulder to shoulder with them — a gay man leading us in prayer, a transgender Muslim beside me.

I’m a straight Muslim feminist, but, like my friends at Al-Fatiha, I’m a criminal, too, in the view of many Islamic clerics today. My crime under conservative sharia law: giving birth to a baby boy 13 years ago while single.

A strict strand of Islamic law metes out an unforgiving approach to straight sex outside of marriage, called zina, and gay sex, called liwat when it involves men, from the Biblical and Koranic story of Lot. As leaders of American Muslim groups rush to condemn the carnage in Orlando, it is important to note the persistence of these sex laws in Islam and to support Muslim reformers trying to repeal them.

50 Saudi men detained over 'un-Islamic' haircuts and necklaces

Authorities in Saudi Arabia arrested 50 youths for having haircuts and wearing necklaces and accessories that were deemed "un-Islamic" on Tuesday.  

The arrests took place as part of a Ramadan crackdown by Saudi officials in the western Saudi city of Mecca, home to Islam’s holiest site. 

According to Saudi news site Sabq, the 50 young men were handed over to the department of criminal investigations, after investigators inspected shopping centres in the city.

Officers came across the youths while looking for a “number of offences like strange haircuts, chains that are hung upon the chest or arms, head wraps and short clothes and immodest ones - for both men and women,” Sabq reported

The Saudi Kingdom’s morality police is mandated to advise Saudi citizens about “habits and traditions that are against religious teachings”.

Match stopped in Saudi Arabia as goalkeeper forced to cut his 'anti-Islamic haircut'

Comment by Chris yesterday

Interesting article you posted Stephen.

"Perhaps the worst case of gross hypocrisy takes place in Afghanistan, where because women cannot dance in public and because Afghan social mores are ultraconservative, a practice known as bacha bazi, or “boy play,” is common. Young boys are dressed up as girls, sometimes with fake breasts, and they dance for crowds of old men who drug and rape them. It is an organized form of pedophilia that American soldiers were shamefully told not to bother looking into."

The Dancing boys of Afghanistan.

I'm probably going to get in trouble for this.

I read some articles saying that in some parts of the world homosexual relations aren't considered wrong if the people involved aren't married and because of economics many young men can't afford to get married so homosexual relations aren't considered 'homosexual.'

Bangladesh arrests Islamist militant over publisher attack

An Islamist militant suspected of attacking a publisher last year has been arrested, Bangladesh police said Thursday, in what they described as an important breakthrough in their investigations into a spate of horrific attacks.

Suman Hossain Patowari, 20, was arrested in Dhaka late Wednesday over a brutal attack that wounded publisher Ahmedur Rashid Tutul and two others at his office in the capital in October.

The arrest comes amid a nationwide police anti-militant crackdown that has seen more than 11,000 people, including 176 suspected Islamist militants, detained since Friday.
