Are there elements in the right wing which try to enforce their views on the population basing it on Islam while it has nothing to do with the religious doctrine? Yes .. I remember, Ustaad Nouman Ali Khan addressing such an issue regarding ayaat, which our moulvi hazrat interpret as the general permission to hit their wives, and he went and cleared it with his seniors and it came out that his seniors (in scholarship) interpreted it differently where the permission was ONLY in the case of a spouse cheating on the husband ... So yes, there are examples of such events occurring. However, are you an Islamic scholar?Yeah God told us to cover so we're covering but these strict mullahs should not dictate us what to wear . Topi burkaah, black thick abaayaa, black clothe are all oppression of these mullahs on women while in islam woman has to be at ease practicing religion .
I don't know about not covering face in haj but overall , I don't there's compulsion in religion for covering the face . I don't cover face when in pardah, only scarf and modest dress but still feel Allah's mercy and his pleasure .
I'm a scholar in the subject of managerial sciences. Now in this vast field, if you bring something for me to explain, I might attempt to do so and succeed. But if you come to me and ask for me to make a call for whats a right or wrong (for instance let's consider a call on managerial strategy) I, even as a scholar in the same field would not be able to help you around 90% of the time because my specialization is in ONE FACET UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS of a huge field. If only someone brought to me a case of the same facet under the same conditions which I've thoroughly researched and know the scholarly literature and the progression of literature from the past to the present, ONLY THEN can I make calls on the strategy as to whats right or wrong in that particular situation.
So how is it that you and I can make calls on whats right and wrong without having the relevant knowledge, context etc in serious religious discussions? I find it quite funny when people on the liberal/left end of the spectrum insult people on the right because of 'ignorance' and all, because when it comes to religion, we are just as clueless if not more.
Nope ... Like I said ... I know many guys like that. Granted, most guys will not stare at the ground while talking to you, but when carrying out a conversation, they'll just maintain an eye contact in a normal convo. It's not "stalking" "harassing" or "Dirty looking" if a guy is just maintaining an eye contact.Such guys are rare ... very rare , I correctly remember one guy who was like this was when I once went to a madrassa and that guy was a controller and whenever women walked by or talked to him , he looks down . Other than him , I have not yet find such decent man .
But have experienced so many moments when men looked , stared , , hoot, stalked , harrased , flirt .... even in pardah, ignorant ones . But has also saw some of respectable too
So finally , such decent men would be a miracle in the world .
Secondly, I find it really funny when all the culpability is thrown on the male gender for all this sort of stuff. Let's not forget, women do this sort of thing too and you actually get away with it because when women do it ... it's not seen as malicious as men doing the same thing.
