Now, THIS is free speech.
That’s Tariq Ramadan, holding up his p***s with the words “I am the sixth pillar of Islam”.
For friends who may not know, Tariq Ramadan is a professor of Islamic something at Oxford. Educated at top institutions in Switzerland and now a celebrity academic at Oxford University, Tariq Ramadan goes around the world explaining just how much Europe is unwilling to accept Muslims. If he has noticed the inherent irony, he surely does not show it.
A simple youtube search will show you how big a celebrity this man is in Europe’s intellectual circles for his passionate struggle against “Islamophobia”.
Except … now there’s at least four different women who have come forward to accuse him of being a sexual predator, including at least two accusations of rape. Yes, the world of academia is having its Harvey Weinstein moment, except nobody is hearing about it much because a Muslim man is at the center of it all.
And that’s why Charlie Hebdo is getting death threats again : because they dared put this cartoon on their cover. Now THIS is free speech.
Now, Charlie Hebdo is not right wing, not even remotely so. In my view, they are best described as wretched Commie loons. But they do have one thing … they are not scared to apply to Islam the same principles that the left applies to all other faiths.
Now, one would think that such intellectual honesty should be a bare minimum standard, but such is the condition of the worldwide left that merely having the guts to hold Muslims accountable becomes a redeeming feature of Charlie Hebdo.
Because the rest of the left liberal universe has become completely subservient to Islam … and to Islamic patriarchy in particular.
If liberalism were a game of cards, Islamic patriarchy would be the top card. No one can beat this card. Once this card is played, all values that liberals pretend to hold : secularism, gender equality, freedom of choice, etc … they all cease to matter.
Wanna see another example? Here is the Canadian Pappu, the liberal heartthrob Justin Trudeau saying:
“We are a place that has figured out that diversity can be a source of strength … “
You know why he has his hand pointing upwards like that? For that, listen to his next words …
“As I look at this beautiful room, with the sisters upstairs … ”
Yes, that’s right. The mosque he is visiting to explain diversity and equality to all Canadians has a gender segregation policy.
Naturally, Canadian Pappu misses the irony without batting an eyelid. Like I said, Islamic patriarchy is the card that trumps all other cards.
So, is anyone surprised that Ranchi based yoga teacher Rafia Naaz is facing fatwas from her peaceful community and no liberal is around to speak for justice? To speak for Rafiya Naaz’s choices in life…
For the liberals, Rafia Naaz’s choice to learn or teach yoga is not free choice worth keeping. The only free choices worth protecting are the choices to attend beef festivals.
For the feminists, Rafia Naaz’s choices in life are not feminist choices. Because they all bow down to the card of Islamic patriarchy. If that means that women like Rafia Naaz have to cry helpless tears, so be it.
At least the Mullahs are smiling.
Perhaps it is time that the Hindu right reach out very seriously to Muslim sisters. While generations of kafirs were enslaved and humiliated through destruction of temples, massacres, partition and jaziya tax, Muslim women were enslaved in the burqa, kept out of all forms of education and achievement in life.
Here is a photo of the function organized by the women’s wing of the PFI that our ex-Vice President attended.
No women in the program organized by the “women’s wing.” Of course. Because there are two kinds of people that Islamic patriarchy keeps under the boot: the kafirs and the Muslim women.
No wonder Hamid Ansari spent all his time in office cursing Modi sarkar. And no wonder Hamid Ansari said that the issue of triple talaq should have been dealt with “inside” the Muslim community. He meant that they should be dealt with by “women’s wings” such as the one in this photograph.
It’s time to form an alliance.
