What has ruined those countries ?
By: Dariush Afshar
Repeatedly, I have ever seen several photos taken from Afghanistan and Iran during periods of times in decades before 1970, which virtually are compared to photos of people at the same situation in decades later after 1970.
In both countries, a brutal religious fascist regime of kind of Islamic, one Shia in Iran and the other Sunni have taken power exlclusively in a totalitarian way and since ever, women in the first placed have been forced to wear hijab and follow the regime’s instrucions of lifestyle.
In Afghanistan, situation has of course been much much worse than Iran and one of it’s basic reasons is that Sunni Islam is so restricted on hijab issues and in fact it’s the genuine account of the religion, while in Shia, the Islamic sharia have been moderated way more than it’s historical opponent Sunni. In this regard, the reform brought to the Iranian society through religion by Baha’is to remove Burqa or by His Majesty “Reza Shah, The Great” to ban Islamic Hijab, forced the society to advance and leap to a further more non-Islamic behavior in the homes and in public.
Today when we look at women in Iran that millions of them are suffering from Islamic hijab, a question raises in mind whether hijab is an absolute part of sharia which is mentioned in Quran, or is just another issue made by Mullahs according to Mohammad’s lifestyle and orders (Sira).
The answer is very well could be the first one, it’s mentioned in Quran. Actually there are many Quranic verses about hijab which command Muslim women wear Islamic hijab and even how to do it.
While it’s ok to ban hijab or remove them completely, but it’s not Ok to set this thought that hijab is not a necessity and inevitable part of Islam. It is and if you’re not wearing hijab as a Muslim, you’re not disgracing Islam, but you’re proving you’re not a Muslim. Muslims who do that, don’t have the courage to put their hypocrite behavior away. They at the same time, support other Islamic superstitious manners including killing millions of animals during their Islamic fest called “Qurban”. They have no problem with fasting for a month too; While the both have been forced to do in Quran as well.
So as we can see, the HYPOCRISY has become an inseparable part of Islam. They pretend to have a religion of peace and at the same time… you know!
This type of otherworldly backed and ordered movements, never will help getting to a correct position to clearify what’s right and what’s wrong about them which always will lead to provide Islamists to get away from consequences of their non-Humane behaviors. What can help is to clear the situation ever more and more. The media worldwide can be used as a helping tool or as a suffocating suppressing manual.
