THE LADY IN THE MOSQUE, SORRY, MASK!

By ATWadmin On December 6th, 2006

khadijaxmas512_228x323.jpgDid you see that Channel 4  is planning to drum up a little controversy for itself over the wearing of the veil – by featuring a Muslim woman in full niqab giving the broadcaster’s alternative Christmas message.

The woman, today named only as Khadija and said to be a lecturer in Islamic studies, will go head-to-head with the Queen when she gives her annual speech to the nation on 25 December.  But hey – aren’t those Burqa Babe glasses a tad uber designer, a little too infidel, designed to inflame male hearts? Now, can I be the first to congratulate Channel 4 – they have a proud tradition of having freaks present the "alternative Christmas Message" and our Islamic Studies lecturer is just one more in this (dis)honourable tradition. I won’t be watching.

  1. Excellent! LOL!!! All part of the normative process – Expect News at 10 to be next! 🙂

  2. Well done to Channel 4. Veiled Muslim women have been one of the most discussed groups in our country this year, it makes perfect sense that this decision has been made.

  3. Utterly disgusting. Their viewing figures are low and will no doubt be even lower. If they wish to appeal to community relations and assist moderate muslims then platforming a fundamentalist with no challenging viewpoint is the wrong way to go about it. I assume that like the queen she will address the issues the world faces – like her sisters in Afghanistan beaten to shit for wearing this garb and their struggles for equality? Whats the betting she wont. As a female I am disgusted by Channel 4s unchallegeable hommage to mysoginy and by the fact that this country seems determined to assist it.

  4. Wouldn’t you just like to reach into the screen and rip it off her face?

  5. Would the usual suspects be similarly enraged if the woman was to give the address via radio?

  6. If she gave her speech on the radio, perhaps we would have people wanting to reach into their headphones and pull her veil off.

  7. Let the woman speak and learn to tolerant dissenting voices and lifestyles.

  8. oh let them get on with it, it merely proves the idiotic chauvinism of a group that feel legitimate criticism requires acts of violence to restore honour but have no qualms about making prats of themselves by trying to force their issues onto the festivities of other groups.
    all we want is a nice white Christmas it would be nice if the Muslims could stop their bully boy antics and their childish whinging for one day of the year.

  9. ‘people wanting to reach into their headphones and pull her veil off.’

    Can I be first in the queue?

    ‘Let the woman speak and learn to tolerant dissenting voices and lifestyles.’

    Not on your life, Salman.

  10. ‘Let the woman speak and learn to tolerant dissenting voices and lifestyles.’

    Oh get real. KKK it is next year then.

  11. So Andrew and Alison , you want to silence women who don’t agree with you. Fine, you join a lot of Muslim men around the world who practise the same patronising dictats.

  12. "Wouldn’t you just like to reach into the screen and rip it off her face?"

    No.

    But your desire to assault the woman is noted, and that certainly puts the calls for a ban into perspective.

  13. I think this cutie should enter for "Ms Winterval 2006" in Birmingham. I’m sure she’d win easily.

  14. DarthKhadija "Don’t make me destroy you, Luke.
    If you only knew the power of the power of the dark side. Obi-Wan never told you what happened to your mother."
    LukeSkywalker "He told me enough! It was you who killed her."

    DK "No. I’m your mother…."
    LS "no, no.. its not true. Thats impossible"

    DK "Join me on the darkside, (just like that yvonne ridley bint).
    Together we can rule as the islamic caliphate, bringing peace & order to the galaxy."
    LS "I’ll never join you"

    (She slices off his hand, shari’ah style)

  15. You folks should get the Yule Log instead. A great tradition of a filmed fireplace with a log burning with a soundtrack of carols. We watched it with glee on our black and white t.v. growing up.

  16. Colm

    I want Muslims who won’t integrate to pack up and get out of this country. Simple as!!

  17. Frank

    I’d call it a ‘thing’, not a ‘woman’.

  18. Andrew,

    "I’d call it a ‘thing’, not a ‘woman’."

    Regardless of what you call her she is a woman.

    If you were to act on your desire to "rip it off her face" you would be guilty of assault.

  19. Like you care Frank. Last time we debated that very issue you argued in favour of their assumed choice even when presented with arguments highlighting abuse. You dismissed it suggesting they had recourse to assault so what was my problem. Your little attack on Andrew in this instance is laughable. At least Andrew is honest.

  20. Yes I would. And though law-abiding, nobody can take away the raw hatred I feel for those who wear monstrosities such as this. That’s something even New Labour cannot do.

  21. Alison,

    "Last time we debated that very issue you argued in favour of their assumed choice even when presented with arguments highlighting abuse."

    And your problem with the concept of consent is…?

    "At least Andrew is honest."

    An honest desire to assault a woman is a good thing, is it?

  22. The fact that some women are forced to wear it is not an arguement for banning it. If it was, it would be an arguement for banning anything that people can be forced to do and banning sex would have major implications for the continuation of the human race.

    We need to come up with another way of stopping to coercion.

  23. "An honest desire to assault a woman is a good thing, is it?"

    For a muslim male, then yes, it won’t harm a career.

  24. What a pathetic bigot you are Allan.
