Women can’t go to university
For Dutch women, who want to practize islam or who is thinking about it, there is issued a book called: “The women in islam”. The publisher, Project Dien, published the book. Co-author is Jeanette Ploeger, she’s connected to the islam grammerschool Er-Riseleh.
The book says for instance the following:
Women should not go to university-buildings. Also rooms where lectures are being held, cinema’s and or packed busses should be avoided to prevent man accedentily touching her.
Dutch women should not, buy their way of clothing, resemble a non believer. For, looking like them is equal to belonging to them, so says ” The women in Islam”. Women should put their eyes down and not to be wearing make-up outdoors. Going outdoors the only thing whats allowed to be reveiled are hands and face. She is not allowed to wear a pair of trousers, the clothes to wear may not be to modern and not be to nice. Men can’t shake hands with her unless there is a handkerchief between both hands or that they both wash their hand in a bowl of water after shaking hands. Who doesn’t live up to this rules awaits a painfull punishment in hellfire.
[4:34] The men are made responsible for the women, ** and GOD has endowed them with certain qualities, and made them the bread earners. The righteous women will cheerfully accept this arrangement, since it is GOD’s commandment, and honor their husbands during their absence. If you experience rebellion from the women, you shall first talk to them, then (you may use negative incentives like) deserting them in bed, then you may (as a last alternative) beat them. If they obey you, you are not permitted to transgress against them. GOD is Most High, Supreme.
It’s a book for practicing muslim women and women who are thinking of becoming one by convirting to islam. A book in which the oppressing of women becomes very clear. A book in which women are thrown back to the middle ages and to the islamic regions in which women are oppressed and considered inferieur to men, a position which completely contradicts the idea of equality of men and women in the modern world. It’s an absolute shame that the inferieur position within the islam is considered to be possitive.
