Looks at what’s trying to pass itself off as the Muslim ‘Lolita’

Why would you give such a dowdy, matronly-looking clothing line a name like Lolita which implies underage sex appeal? Sorry, cupcake, this is false advertising and you are an embarrassment to real women in the real world. Your husband needs to keep you locked up and out of sight. Freak!

UPDATE: Apparently, ‘Lolita’ fashion  is a victorian dress style popular in Japan, minus the headbags, However, that doesn’t make Little Bo Peep any less freakish.

WOO HOO! Headbag-wearing Muslim women are being turned away from beach resorts…in EGYPT!

Many Egyptian women say they are facing a difficult summer season as Hijab-free zones have soared in popularity, as more restaurants and high-end resorts enforce a de-facto ban on wearing headbags.



al-Arabiya  Social media users in Egypt flocked to Facebook and Twitter over the past week to condemn the apparent decision by some venues to deny veiled women entry. Many deemed the ban as “discriminatory” against practicing Muslim women in Egypt – a country in which 90 percent of its 80-million population are Muslim.

The ban is not completely new, it was reportedly common at resorts and restaurants frequented by foreigners, in cities such as Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada.



Recent reports suggest that several swimming pools and restaurants at five-star resorts lining the Egyptian north coast are also restricting the entry of veiled women to their services.

Reem, a 28-year-old woman who wears the Hijab, said she was turned away at the doors of two different beaches at upscale north coast resorts for being veiled, she told Al Arabiya News. “I was with my husband when I was told I cannot come in because I’m veiled.



“The outing was quickly cut short when the security at the door told me guests complain about the appearance of veiled women,” she added. Reem said such door-selection policies are never written.

Sally Nashaat, a 26-year-old mother of two girls, said she was also not allowed to enter a beach club house at a five-star north coast resort for being veiled.



Among a group of friends, she was told: “Everyone can enter, except her.“It feels degrading, we are in our own country and we are not happy. “I was about to cry,” Nashaat said, “no one has the right to deprive me of entering. This never happened to me anywhere else, even in the United States. (That needs to be changed)

Nashaat said in some beaches that permitted access to veiled women, she was allowed to sit on the beach wearing the “Islamic” swim suit but not into the swimming pool. “I don’t want to be stopped for being veiled. I don’t want any of us to feel ashamed. We are not doing anything wrong,” she added.



Dina Sherbini, who owns a chalet at an upscale resort in Ain Sukhna, about 200 kilometres east of Cairo, told Al Arabiya News she was threatened by staff members if she swam wearing an Islamic swim suit. They threatened “they would throw excess chlorine in the water” and that they would “shut off fountains and Jacuzzi in the pool,” Sherbini said.

When she bought the chalet three years ago, Sherbini said, nothing in her contract mentioned that swimming while covered was unacceptable in the resort. “It was allowed before but now they changed their mind. What can we do now? Neither myself or my daughters are now allowed to swim.”

Sherbini also recalled a recent incident where the same administration refused to sell a friend of hers a unit at the resort for being veiled.

INDIA’s Supreme Court upholds ban on Muslim headbags, burqas, and long sleeves for All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT) because of widespread cheating by Muslim students

0The Supreme Court of India declined to interfere with the dress code prescribed by the CBSE for candidates appearing for the AIPMT exam, barring them from wearing either a headbag and full-sleeved shirt. A bench of Chief Justice H.L. Dattu, Justice Arun Mishra and Justice Amitava Roy while rejecting the appeal by the Students Islamic Organization of India, said: “If you appear in an examination without a scarf, your faith will not disappear.” (Don’t you just love a judge with a sense of humor?)


Legally India  The earlier All India Pre-Medical Entrance Test (AIPMT) had been ordered cancelled by the Supreme Court after widespread cheating resulted by students wearing Muslim religious attire.

Its response came as senior counsel Sanjay Hegde, appearing for the organisation, said: “Wearing head scarf is an essential religious practice. The girls will be forced to abandon the examination.” (Good! Nobody wants a Muslim handling them in a hospital, except for another Muslim)

Describing the plea as “nothing but an ego”, the court said that candidates can wear the head scarf after the exam is over. “It is only for three hours… wear scarf after three hours”, Chief Justice Dattu said. The court also observed that faith is something different from wearing a particular type of clothes.

Required attire for the test

“Sorry, sorry, sorry, we are not going into these small issues,” Chief Justice Dattu said rejecting the plea as Hegde sought to urge the court that “minority is a minority”.

At the outset of the hearing, Chief Justice Dattu questioned the locus of the SIOI to raise the issue of dress code. “Organisation can’t come before us to question dress code and head scarf.”  The apex court on June 15 had scrapped the AIPMT for the year 2015-16 following the leak of its question paper and circulation of their answer keys through electronic devices at different examination centres in 10 states across the country.

Earlier the Kerala High Court while refusing to interfere with the dress code prescribed by the CBSE to prevent any unfair practices had granted permission to two Muslim girls to appear in the test wearing head scarf.

WHAT NEXT? Muslim maternity modesty pants to protect a mother’s ‘modesty’ during childbirth

A Malaysian clothing company has created maternity pants which conceal a women’s ‘intimate parts’ (aurat) during childbirth. The garment is produced by the online store ‘MamaPride’ which claims a lot of women in their Muslim-majority country ‘do not agree’ with male doctors delivering their baby. (No, it’s the male husbands who ‘do not agree’ with this)


The Malay Mail  (h/t Marina S) The invention of pants to cover a woman’s “aurat” during childbirth, was inspired by demands for pregnant Muslim women to only be handled by female doctors. The product, which ‘preserves the dignity of females’ by covering the thighs, ankles and knees during labour, is the first of its kind. 

According to Dr Wan Yusof, one of the designers of the unique pants, the idea to develop the pants started five years ago, after the case of a Muslim woman who had her baby delivered by a male doctor. “The mother went into labour and was handled by a male doctor, which later kicked off a debate as to whether such practice was halal, Islamic and many others.


“A petition was even started by a Muslim doctor calling on the government to permit only female doctors and nurses to handle the pregnant mothers from all race and religion, with several Muslim scholars later declaring that male doctors should never attend to female patients.”

Dr Wan Yusof said that the argument then prompted research into possible solutions to the demands made in the petition, particularly ones that would not require the laborious policy changes to ensure patients are only attended to by doctors of the same sex.

According to Dr Wan Yusof, their research concluded that women’s thighs, knees and ankles need not be exposed during childbirth. “Our aim is to minimise the expose of unnecessary body parts of the mother, as the only part needed for medical purpose is the vagina and this is why we just want to cover the unnecessary part, but allow only the opening of the vagina,” he said.


The group then began looking for products that would allow these parts of the body to be clothed while still enabling doctors the needed access during delivery.

Dr Wan Yusof said that after studying the available options and failing to find one that met their criteria, the team of 19 doctors then designed the MamaPride prototype: Maternity pants that resemble track bottoms with an opening designed for childbirth.

They then proceeded to conduct trial runs of the pants at two private hospitals in Kelantan and Kedah to test for shortcomings, and after several minor upgrades based on feedback from pregnant mothers, packaged the pants for sale via Koperasi Amal Medik Bhd.


Dr Wan Yusof said that the cost to develop the product was about RM10,000, and was mainly borne by the designers who were determined to find a solution for Muslim mothers. The medical authorities were also not receptive to the idea, he said, when they declined to provide a development grant to the group last August, deeming the product to be impractical.

“Many rejected the idea of our product, claiming it is not viable. Nobody believed this idea to be an alternative solution, but we kept our hope and wanted to see it materialise…so we sacrificed for it,” he said.

MamaPride sells the trousers on its Facebook page and website for around £20 each. They are available in three sizes – large, extra-large and extra-extra-large. The trousers resemble baggy tracksuit bottoms and open only at the crotch to enable delivery of the baby.

FRANCE: Strict sharia-compliant grocery store bans women from shopping there 4 days a week

b9d003ceb45b7df698a8fdbffc1ae0cbA sign recently went up outside a grocery store in Bordeaux, France, alerting customers that women would not be allowed to shop there on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, while men would be welcome to enter on weekends only. This sharia-compliant gender ban, imposed by the store’s owners – Muslim converts – sparked a backlash from those who say the practice is discriminatory.

IB TIMES (h/t Ros L)  The owners of the store, who recently converted to Islam, said the purpose of imposing male- and female-only days was about respecting the teachings of their religion and preventing men and women from crossing paths.


The store, De l’Orient à l’Occidental (“From East to West”) could face penalties of up to 75,000 euros ($85,000 ) for imposing such a rule, as French law forbids such measures, the Telegraph reported.

The store’s co-owner, Jean-Baptiste Michelon, defended the gender-based shopping days, claiming he didn’t know the law. “It’s really for practicing Muslims,” Michelon told French news channel BFMTV, according to the Telegraph.


“A man doesn’t want to find himself alone with a woman. A woman who comes to buy books here doesn’t want to find herself alone with a man, especially out of respect if she is married.”

Critics were quick to condemn the store’s policy. Among those who spoke out was the deputy mayor of Bordeaux, Marik Fetouh. “It’s the first time we’ve seen something like this in Bordeaux,” Fetouh told 20 Minutes. “Even if this is a very limited phenomenon, it is problematic, not least because it gives a bad image of the Muslim community, which as a matter of fact respects 99 percent of the laws of France.” 

"Can't you walk any faster?"

“Come on, can’t you walk any faster?”

Residents of Bordeaux, including the imam of the city’s main mosque, said they were outraged by the sign outside De l’Orient à l’Occident. Imam Tareq Oubrou said the owners’ religious convictions were misguided.

“Even during the era of the prophet, there were no such rules,” Oubrou told France 3 TV. “It’s a bit strange to try to apply [gender separation] in a culture where equality has been firmly established. Maybe the shop owner’s choice was personal, rather than theological.” (Oh, really? See below)

The sign allegedly was taken down soon after, according to local reports.

“This is the joy of the temporal world…even though our afterlife will be full of pain from Allah swt, what is it compared to the medal hung around that neck if our spirit in the afterlife suffer one day later,” wrote Addieputra Jentayu.


Other Muslim Facebook users, however, have come to Farah Ann’s defense. “So disgusting reading these religious comments from the so-called future members of heaven… just ignore them… Congratulations Farah Ann, it’s not easy to get a gold medal for Malaysia,” wrote Dina Nida.

Singapore news website The New Paper reported that Farah Ann had pulled off a flawless floor routine to score 13.733, beating Indonesia and Vietnam. also reportedly won three bronze medals and a silver in individual events.

Oh, LOOKIE! After 1400 years of not contributing anything of value to civilization (NO, they did NOT invent Algebra), Muslims have come up with a water-repellant, cool, Islamic headbag

muslim_woman_gym_20051121And they are touting it as something that will make Muslim women’s ‘workout’ sessions easier and more comfortable, as if walking around in black garbage bags requires anyone to be in good shape in the first place.


For all those Muslim women who battle with their hijabs (headbags) during an intense workout session or for those who tie their hijab so tight that it leaves their skin all chafed, Veil Garments has come up with a solution! “Veil introduces the most advanced hijab ever – Cool Dry. With water repelling and cooling technology, you’re in control of the weather,” is how the company describes the product.


Basically, Veil Garment  has come up with a technology which makes the hijab water-repellant and keeps it dry at all times, like a raincoat. The veil also has a cooling technology, which absorbs 80% of heat rays and keeps the fabric a lot more cooler than normal fabric. Ordinary dark-coloured fabric absorbs 90% of heat rays.

Ahmad Ghanem, the 22-year-old Muslim founder of the brand, hailing from Cleveland, Ohio, says “I was thinking that there was so much incorporated technology with performance clothing. Why hasn’t anyone done this for the hijab?”


Ghanem said that apparel companies use climate technology for all-weather clothes but no one gave a second-thought for Muslim women struggling to work out with their hijabs.

Veil Garment has not only paid attention to cooling, heating and water-resistance technology during the make of these hijabs but they have also paid special attention to the way these veils are stitched. “Instead of the usual ‘cut & sew’ method, we decided to team up with a brilliant laser cutting company,” which keeps the comfort level to the optimum and keeps the skin from chafing.

Ghamen says,  with Muslims infesting every country on earth, “I don’t know why no other sports brand has done this before.”

SAUDI ARABIA: Burqa-clad woman kicked out of shopping mall for indecent exposure of her bare hands

Video footage of the incident, which took place at Barzan Mall in the northwestern city of Hail, shows a bearded man wearing a red headrag and a dress shouting at the woman and demanding she leave.

UK Daily Mail (h/t John H)  The man is understood to be a member of Saudi’s police force – known as the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice – which is notorious for imposing the country’s strict interpretation of Islamic law. The bearded police officer shouts at her and demands she cover her exposed hands. ‘Walk away… don’t say a word… Put on some gloves,’ he demands, as he refuses to let the woman enter a shop. Saudi women are required to cover themselves from head to toe whenever they set foot outside their home.
