A 15-year old Egyptian girl who rejected her family’s pressures to wear the Islamic headscarf, known as the hijab, shot herself to death using her father’s handgun, Egyptian and regional media have reported.

The girl’s suicide, which took place last week in an area of the Giza province, was reported by the popular Egyptian news website Youm7.

The girl, identified only as Amira was subjected to “violence” by her family after she removed her hijab.

Preferring death to living under violence, Amira reportedly “sneaked” into her father’s room, took his gun and opened fire on herself, an investigation found, according to Youm7.

CAIR pushes for hijab-friendly uniform policy in all US prisons

An Islamic activist group is trying to force all U.S. jails and prisons to allow Muslim female inmates to wear the hijab head covering, according to a report.

Never mind looking out for the safety of guards and other inmates.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations wants the
U.S. Justice Department to institute a “hijab-friendly” uniform policy
that would allow Muslim women to keep their heads covered in photographs
and while in detention in all local and federal U.S. prisons.

The issue has arisen in numerous jurisdictions in the U.S. ,
including South Carolina, Orange County, Calif., King County, Wash., and
areas with high Muslim populations, such as Novi, Mich.

A CAIR attorney wants to take those individual policies national, according to a report by the Al Arabiya online news outlet.

“I’m working on several pending cases in different states,” Nadhira
al-Khalili, legal counsel for CAIR, told Al Arabiya. “And I’m in touch
with an attorney for the Department of Justice’s Office of Civil
Rights.”

Walid said there’s no reason the hijab covering should not be permitted behind bars.

“If hijab is allowed in the military, and U.S. driving licenses
permit women IDs with hijab, then the same logic can be applied,” Walid
said. “Hijab doesn’t impede the identity of women.”

That “same logic” part would be true if people got locked up just to have their picture taken.

But extra clothing can do more than just conceal or alter an
identity, it can also hide drugs, weapons or other contraband, which
means more time spent in close interaction between guards and inmates.

And that means more security risks.

A hijab is also basically a piece of loose cloth, but loose cloth can
be rolled up to make a short rope. And a short rope is about all you
need to strangle someone.

Muslim Imam Claims Women Who Don’t Wear Hijabs are “Asking to be Raped”, Arrested for Trying to Rape Woman

Imam Mehdi enjoys the Koran, the Sunnah and long walks in the park

You have to give Imam Shahid Mehdi credit. Unlike a lot of other Muslim clergy who say that women who don’t wear hijabs or burkas or who leave the house deserve to be raped, but then don’t follow up on it, Shahid Mehdi stayed true to his belief that Islamic morality justifies sex crimes by trying to commit a sex crime.

An Islamic mufti in Copenhagen, Shahid Mehdi, has sparked political outcry from the left-wing Unity List and right-wing Danish People’s Party, after stating in a televised interview that women who do not wear headscarves are “asking for rape.”

Women are not entitled to respect when they walk around without a Hijab. They are to blame for it when they are attacked,” Imam Shahid Mehdi said.

“All the crimes that occur against women is because they are not covered. When they are not covered, you have no respect for them. ”

“She disobeys her master, there are two places in the Qur’an has ordered her to cover themselves (…) Women make a clean society dirty when they walk around without a Hijab. They are not entitled to respect and are not valuable as those who wear a Hijab. ”

Shahid Mehdi made his remarks in the DR2 programme “Talk to Gode,” and reiterated his stance in daily newspaper B.T. The Danish People’s Party and Unity List agree that Mehdi’s remarks could incite Muslim men to rape Danish women by insinuating that women who did not cover their hair were undeserving of basic respect.

As a mufti, a jurist who interprets Islamic law, Shahi Mehdi is in a special position of authority as a Muslim scholar. Mehdi is the Imam of the Islamic Religious Community mosque in Dortheavej in Copenhagen northwest and the Rector of Muslim private school and former leader of the Islamic Cultural Center in Brønshøj.

“The very idea that this man is authorised to teach young people in the Koran is ludicrous. It’s like letting (Danish Nazi leader) Johnny Hansen teach the history of World War II,” said Rosenkrantz-Theil.

No, actually it’s more like letting Johnny Hansen teach Mein Kampf. But to make a long story horrible, the Mufti followed up his Koranic teaching by doing this...

“A 36-year-old Danish man is the protagonist in a bizarre sex case, which will soon be dealt with in court in Malmö.

Now, however, he is accused of pulling his penis out and chasing a 23-year-old woman around in a park in Malmö in August 2012, according to the court in Malmö.

The woman managed to get away, and she called the police, who arrested the man a few minutes later.

The woman told the police that she lives close to the park, and was out walking her puppy when the man walked towards her, and she began to feel uncomfortable.

She bent down to pick up her dog, when the man asked about her name. She just had time to respond before the man opened his pants and took his penis out, while she was still bent down so that his penis was half a meter from her head.

The woman got up and ran away, and when she looked over her shoulder, she saw that the man followed her, she told police. The man gave up his project, and disappeared into some bushes.

It’s unknown whether or not the woman was wearing a Hijab. Or whether her dog was wearing a Hijab. Either way a Muslim court would have found her guilty. Unfortunately for him all this is taking place in Europe where the lack of a Hijab has not been widely accepted as justification for attempted sexual assault.

Naturally Imam Mehdi is blaming racism.

During the interrogation he refused to plead guilty and believes that the accusation is based on racism because he has Pakistani roots.

Clearly. No Swedish man would have been arrested for exposing himself to a woman and chasing her around the park… after saying that women without Hijabs deserve to be raped.

Finally it was revealed that Imam Mehdi, Hijabi mandator, apparently used to sell women’s lingerie.
