Burkah, Fear and Paranoia Based on Prejudice and Bigotry

Burkah, Fear and Paranoia Based on Prejudice and Bigotry

 

 

 

I don’t care whether some one wears a burkah or not. But I do care if some one is forced to wear a burkah I also care if burkah is used to commit any crime. To the best of my knowledge I have not seen any statistics in this regard. However, I have heard can be, could be, may be, might be, … types of supposition, and possibility billions of time. These types of irrational and illogical fear and paranoia based on prejudice and bigotry are prevalent in our society.

 

The former Prime Minister of Australia John Howard managed to win two un-winnable elections by using fear and paranoia based on prejudice and bigotry. His last bastion was the Northern Territory Intervention at the expense of Aboriginal people. Yet, after all of this vicious and creative propaganda:

1.     Not one person was prosecuted for sexual abuse.

2.     Not one hospital was built.

3.     Not one school was built.

 

In this occasion, half Israeli Nicolas Sarkozy got many personal and political failures. In order to divert attention from his own shortcomings he has abused and misused the burkah issue. Yet, it is not an issue in the French media. However, burkah is the headline news in some countries including Australia due to the never ending vendetta of some ill-motivated tabloid media and other instrumentalities.

 

By the way, no one is telling non-Muslims how to dress, eat or behave. Yet every Tom, dick and Harry thinks that they have got some divine rights to tell the Muslims what to do or not to do! Why is it so? May I ask?

 

Is it because Islam and Arab bashing is the most popular sport in the town?

 

People who seek moral guidance from the toilet blocks of suburbia scream about the burkah and become self appointed saviors of Muslim women! Isn’t it funny and peculiar?

  

Anthropologically the pagans, Jews, Christians and many non Muslims used to wear the burkah and still they do to seek protection from the nature and environment. Burkah got many advantages in some environment and it is not a tool of oppression or anything of that nature.  It could be a fixation of some people.

 

So, let’s remove prejudice and bigotry from the burkah debate and think freely.
